The Fortnite World Cup is all you can hear by every gamer in the planet and it’s almost here!
We’ve all been preparing and practicing for the ultimate event of Fortnite battle royale, the Fortnite World Cup, for months and months. Racking up points in the Arena mode and facing off your friends in epic 1v1s has surely been what you’ve done the past few days in Fortnite (come on I know you’ve been doing that don’t hide it). After all, the tournament does have a whopping 30 Million Dollars prize pool! Have you made your place in the top 200 Fortnite players? If not then better luck next time fellow broskis.
Solos and Duos are the two main competitions and obviously the highly played game modes in the game. The competitors chosen for these game modes had taken part in qualifiers the past 10 weeks and the best of the best were chosen from the litter.The Solos competition will be taking place on 28th of July whereas the Duos event will happen on 27th of July, both occuring on the weekend so you can grab your favorite food and sit on your procrastination chair and get jealous of the skills of these players who make castles during a fight whereas you couldn’t even make a simple 1v1 and would die while someone threw chug splashes at you, sad.
Not only this, but you can also laugh your butts off to some celebrities suffering in this game as there will be a special event on Friday 26th of July, the Celebrity Pro-Am Tournament, where 50 celebrities will get teamed with 50 pro players in order to raise $3 Million for charity. This will occur after the Creative World Cup where eight different teams of fours will compete in some Fortnite Creative maps.
