Fortnite's New Explosive Item Disabled Almost Immediately

Another example of this can be found in the instance when Playground Mode was disabled indefinitely not long after it went live for the first time several months ago due to matchmaking issues.

This is the first open tournament Epic Games has supported in its $100M inaugural season. So as a player advances in a tournament, matches will get more challenging.

Unlike the Summer and Fall "Skirmish" events, the Winter Royale is not an invitational that only a select (and very lucky) few can participate in.

To run everything smoothly, Epic has updated its online tournament system.

He is also one of the most popular player of the league having played in Pakistan as well on the two previous occasions. Lahore Qalandars have also picked up Core Anderson to strengthen their middle order.

Fortnite's next official esports event is a $1M prize pool online tournament. "We will continue to explore the best fit for competition by adjusting the matchmaking process over time as needed". Using the new online tournament system, Epic will test the program that will "emulate the World Cup qualification process". Winter Royale has a total of $1m available in prize money, though it isn't clear how that total is divided.

Publisher Epic Games says anyone can enter the qualifying stage; your highest score during any event session will be the one that counts.

Notably, the Winter Royale will be an open competition available to any and all participants through Fortnite's Online Tournament platform.

The top performers in each region for NA and European Union will be verified, and those players found eligible will be invited to participate in the Winter Royale Finals for their region. The event is once again restricted to Europe and North America, but Epic's announcement did add that the developer's plans to roll out "other region-specific tournaments in additional regions in the near future".
