FORMAT AND RULES
HOW TO WIN:
Code Red is a double-elimination tournament that will start off with 16 teams of two players each. Since there are no publicly available custom games in Fortnite, the competition will follow the standard 'total of two' format.
Each round, the Duos that are matched up together will queue into a Squads lobby and try to get more eliminations than their opponent. After two maps, the team with the more kills wins.
If kills are tied after the two maps, a third map will be played, with the first Duo to get to five total kills first winning. If neither team gets to five, the one with the higher number of eliminations wins.
Sabotage is not allowed and will result in a forfeit if there is substantial proof that a team committed one or more of the following:
- Damaging any of your opponents Vehicles, Equipment, Items, etc.
- Running over your opponent with a vehicle or Killing/Harming them with a vehicle.
- Using any equipment to interfere with your opponent.
Ex: Throwing a smoke, flash, stun/concussion, etc at your opponent.
