Fortnite Flakes Power Cup: Schedule

The Fortnite Flakes Power Cup will comprise a total of three stages and will commence from the 14th of July until the  28th of July. The exact times have yet to be announced but will most likely be regionally based.

PC and Console Groups will play on the same days for Stages 1 and 2 (but at different times).

Stage 1 (Qualifiers)

  • 14th of July - Qualifier 1 (Rounds 1 & 2)
  • 15th of July - Qualifier 2 (Rounds 1 & 2)

Stage 2 (“Heats”)

  • 17th of July - Heats 1 to 4

Stage 2 (Grand Finals)

At the conclusion of Round 2 of the applicable Qualifier, the top point-earning teams as listed on the Leaderboard will advance to Stage 2 and will be seeded into groups (i.e. a “Heat”). During this stage, teams will play up to six matches.

The top placing teams in each Heat in Stage 2 will progress to the Grand Finals.

For clarity, teams will only be allowed to enter one Qualifier for any given platform, so you can’t enter for both Qualifiers 1 and 2.
