Fortnite Tournament Rules

Fortnite tournament rules are very quite simple. As we've already talked about above, our tournament matches are played in public lobbies. Opponents in our tournaments play side by side so to speak, and the team that gets the most kills or completes the objective described in the rules of the individual competition will win. So if you are in a 1v1 tournament match; you and your opponent will go into a Duos public lobby and play. While playing, you are not allowed to sabotage each other's play in an unsportsmanlike manner. The players will play out their tournament match, and the player or team of players with the most kills will win the match. If you win, you should be sure to use ingame DVR or a game capture device to capture video proof of your win to ensure there is no doubt that you are in-fact the winner! So, in essence, the Fortnite tournament points we would be counting in most cases would be the kills you and your team have, and the Fortnite tournament winners would be the most skilled killers. We choose this as our competitive metric in most tournaments because it's believed and shown to be a very good test of skill. We have other variations of Fortnite tournaments that some players enjoy. These variations have their own rules that can slightly differ from one another. For instance, we have Survival Deathmatch where the goal is to stay alive the longest rather than get the most kills. We also have Sabotaged tournaments where players are encouraged to wreak havoc on their opponents without fear of being disqualified for unsportsmanlike conduct, and we also have Drop Zone tournaments where the website randomly specifies a point on the map for you and your opponent to both land. A Drop Zone tournament might be enjoyed by players who always want to land at tilted towers, or want to compete in a head to head style with their opponents rather than playing two separate parts of the map.
