Sweet Saturdays now bring Fortnite online open semifinals with them! the match limit is 10 and scoring is based on placement and eliminations. Prizes are up for the grabs with top 3,000 players advancing to the Online Open Finals on Sunday. Players may participate in only one server region.
Here’s a complete schedule to the event
Fortnite Online Open Finals
Online Open Finals starts with a fresh points table on Sunday. This event is also a 3-hour event. Match limit is 10. The top standing players globally will receive cash prizes from a million-dollar prize pool. Prize payout tiers are yet to be confirmed. The highest ranked players in each server region will advance to the World Cup Finals.
Players can only pair with one duo partner each weekend of the open tournament. However, players can switch duo partners from week to week. Duos partners that qualify for the Fortnite world cup finals cannot be switched for a substitute.
Matchmaking during both solo and duo rounds is based on current points within the tournament. (platforms are not taken into consideration).
The players that can qualify from Asia is extremely low. This shows that not many Asian players are playing Fortnite and this is strange because India and Indonesia which are Asian countries are among the top three countries to play PUBG in the 2018-19 season. This might be due to the fact that this game is unavailable on all mobile phones which seem to be a major platform in the case of PUBG.
Let’s hope that Epic games finds a solution to this
World Cup finals
Newyork City will be hosting the finals for all elite players across the world. The prize pool is 30 million-dollars. We could expect some intense action in this event.
