According to a recent official blogpost from Epic Games, the Fortnite Pgod Cup is set to begin on 11th August in all regions. The tournament will feature Trios gameplay, so get your squad of three together for all the excitement set to arrive in the battle royale.

Do note that during the Event, all team members must be present and partied up together in order to participate. Players on a Trios team may not play Solo or Duos. Additionally, if a team doesn't have all members present and partied up together by the start time for a given match, it will be considered to have finished in (or tied for) last place with zero eliminations for that match.

Here's the scoring system for the Fortnite Pgod Cup.

The Round 1 session of the Event will last approximately three hours. Teams may participate in a maximum of ten matches during the Round 1 session. Teams will earn points based on the scoring system listed above.

At the conclusion of Round 1, the top point-earning teams from each Region will advance and be eligible to queue up for Round 2 of the Event.

For Round 2, teams will compete in a single session during their respective Region’s Round 2 session window as listed in-game. The Round 2 session will last approximately three hours, with the first match starting ten minutes after the session window begins, and a new match starting every thirty minutes thereafter. Teams may participate in a maximum of six matches during the Round 2 session. If a team fails to queue for the playlist and/or misses the start time for a given match, it will be considered to have finished in (or tied for) last place with zero eliminations for that missed match.
