THIS EVENT IS ON THE PC and CONSOLE PLATFORMS

WE ARE ACCEPTING DUO SQUADS ONLY. SINGLE PLAYERS are NOT GUARANTEED a spot. HOWEVER - If you are looking to find a partner, please JOIN OUR DISCORD, give yourself the Fornite role and POST in #misc-looking-for-group that you are looking for a partner https://discord.gg/KnKpqrs
If you are signing up for a team, YOU BOTH MUST SIGN UP so we can better place your team.
**HOW IT WORKS**
In our tournament, Duo teams will compete head-to-head to try and acquire the most kills over two games. The goal is to acquire more kills than the other team.
Teams will queue into the same game, attempting to acquire the most kills by themselves or with their partner.
The team with the most kills after two games advances in the winner’s bracket.
The losing team moves to the loser’s bracket, where only one game will be played to gather the most kills instead of two.
The losing team from a losers bracket game will be eliminated from the tournament.
If the total kills result in a tie, a third (or second, if in the loser’s bracket) match will be played to determine a winner.
The last player/team standing from the winners and losers bracket will compete in a final to determine the winner, where the winners of the losers bracket must win twice to claim victory.
**RULES AND REGULATIONS**
(Violation(s) of these rules will most likely result in disqualification)
PC and Console players are allowed - in the event where an Xbox player is matched with a PS4 player, teams will not -queue into the same game.
You cannot grief or sabotage opponents in any way. This includes boogie bombs, impulse nades, clingers, building in front of opponents, etc.
Players must be 16+ years of age to compete
Toxic, hostile, or abusive behavior is prohibited - be kind and have fun!
You must stream your games to provide perspectives for our casters and proof for game scores.
Teaming with players outside your assigned team is prohibited.
Any use of mods/cheats/hacks/etc. is prohibited and will result in a ban from the tourney.
You must have a duo partner in order to sign up for the event. If you do not have a partner with their info in your application or your partner does not show up for the games, you will be disqualified.
In losers bracket games, the team that advanced the farthest in the winners bracket will host the game. In the first round of losers bracket, where both teams lost in the first round, the higher seed will host the game.
Because the event will be casted, we are looking to provide the most raw gameplay possible without taking away from anyone's streaming experience. While you are playing in the tourney, your facecam/overlay is highly suggested to be in the middle left side of your streen and not stretch over 1/4 of the screen horizontally. Overlays cannot block/hide/disrupt any HUD elements of Fortnite (minimap, loadout, compass, etc.)
Every team that signs up for the event will receive an email 1-3 days before the tournament that will explain whether or not you are playing in the event and will have important information on the bracket and more. Please keep a keen eye on the address that you provide in your application. Players have experienced the email appearing in their spam folder, so please check there as well.
