In a video released by Hi-Rez Studios, Community Manager 'HiRezJNASH' provided details for each of the tournaments, starting with the Realm Royale Invitational, which will be held every Wednesday starting at 3 PM ET / 12 PM PT.
"Skillshot Media will launch its first weekly Invitation tournament. This will feature players from North America and Europe that are both highly ranked Masters players as well as broadcasters. Each Invitational will offer a prize pool of $10,000."
The second major competition, which is being called the KEEMSTAR Realm Royale 100K Thursday tournament, will be held every Thursday starting at 4 PM ET / 1 PM PT.
Just as with KEEMSTAR's weekly Friday Fortnite event, this tourney is set to feature popular broadcasters and content creators, and will include a whopping $100,000 prize pool.
Both of these tournament series will be live-streamed by Skillshot Media hosts and casters on the Realm Royale Twitch and Mixer channels, as well as the participating broadcasters on their personal channels.
We will also provide a dedicated hub for the KEEMSTAR 100K tournament, including all rules, details, streams, and the full bracket once it is officially released.
