Posted on

Fortnite Cash Cups are back. They are a little different from what we have already seen in the past. On March 9, 2020, it was a great day for the players of Fortnite and fans around the world.

Epic Games came out hot in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 with the unveiling of another Fortnite Champion Series. It has been a long wait since the last FNCS concluded. Finally, a new competition is back here and now in a duo format. Along with the FNCS announcement, came the return of tournaments which are often polarizing for the Cash Cup. We have already seen Trio Cash Cups in the past, but for the Fortnite Season 2 Chapter 2, Epic Games is going to host Solo and Duo Cash Cups.

By the way, how does Cash Cup work? And how is about the format of Fortnite Cash Cup? You have to know that the format remains the same as we have saw in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 1. Each week, the pairs are going to have the opportunity to compete in three separate rounds. Points based qualifications from the first round to the second round apply. The same applies for parts of the second round to the third round. The top 50 doubles each week is going to line up for the final round. Then, the winner of the highest score is going to guarantee a place in the semi-finals at the end of the season. In the text below, you are able to see a summary of how many pairs from each region that is going to reach Phase 2 of the competition. Duos can also qualify for weekly consistency.

The @FNCompetitive Twitter account does not made formal reference for the return of Fortnite Cash Cups. Instead, a blog post appeared in Fortnite’s competitive news section with the rules and regulations for upcoming competitions. This is a normal business in terms of scoring system where the placement limits give three points for 11th to 15th place, five points for 6th to 10th place, seventh for 2nd to 5th place and ten for the Victory Royale. Each the elimination won in a given game is going to obtain one point for each pair or solo. Fortnite Cash Cup is going to take place on Wednesdays and Thursdays, starting on March 18, 2020 and ending on April 22, 2020.


Apparently, there are two types of Cash Cups; Ghost and Shadow. You have to know that Ghost and Shadow Cash cups save the theme of the Agency from Fortnite chapter 2 Season 2. However, each side is going to host separate tournaments. For example, Platform Cash Cups for Europe is going to feature a Ghost and Shadow version with the same payment structure. Besides, each competition is going also to be held simultaneously with the other.

Actually, the rules do not explicitly indicate whether duos and solos lock themselves in Ghost or Shadow, once in the first game’s queue. It means that the players are able to switch with the hope of doubling their money. Even though, the time and limit of matches still exists.
