Scores are manually pulled and gathered from the private server from the admins. Should you have a discrepancy you will need to make sure you have a screenshot of your score and eliminations as proof. A clip of the end game will work as well if you are streaming.
If any ties occur during the competition, then the items listed below will be used as the tiebreaker in the following order:
- Total points scored;
- Total Victory Royales in the session;
- Average eliminations in the session;
- Average placement per match in the session;
- A coin flip.
If for some reason the player disconnects from their game, and the lobby has already been started, they will be awarded 2 points due to the placement scoring.
If a player/team cannot get into the lobby within the allotted time, the game will start and the team is given 2 points for placement. Unfortunately we are broadcasting this game so we cannot wait more than the allotted time.
Participants are not prohibited from broadcasting, live streaming, or uploading video content, including stills, of their in-game participation in the match. Streams must be delayed by three minutes or more to prevent stream peeking issues. When putting in the password to the server, you must hide your screen during the stream and secretly put in the password.
Stream peeking violates the spirit of the competition, but there is not an easy way to enforce an anti-stream peeking policy in Fortnite, thus we will not be ruling either way on matters related to stream peeking.
30 players from each qualifier will earn their spot in the Finals event happening at the end of each month on Thursday Feb 25th. Each qualifier will hold 8 exclusive spots for initiation only, these spots will be granted to individuals who stand out, individuals who support the community events (i.e. VIP performers, traditional sports athletes, avid gamers, influencers, etc. at which upon their entry will be entitled and expected to follow the rules set forth by the tournament operations team and production personnel running the tournament and broadcasts.
