Fan concept for new LTM in Fortnite is perfect for the competitive community

Despite the addition of in-game tournaments, Fortnite players are still looking for ways to scratch that competitive itch and this concept would be perfect.

As the Fortnite meta continues to evolve on an almost weekly basis, many aren’t satisfied with the options currently available for competitive play.

Epic Games added tournaments to the game with the V6.10 update in October, but this new concept would be a completely different spin on competitive Fortnite.

The concept was posted to Reddit by ‘realTheCrafter’ and would be a competitive take on the Playground mode that’s currently in the game already.

Whereas Playground has become a way for dedicated players to practice builds and other strategies on their own, this mode would be focused on getting battle training in a real setting.

Rather than having a full lobby, the LTM would see just 30 people load into a lobby with the game starting right after the 3rd circle has closed. Players would also load in with a bevy of materials and a full loadout to get the fighting started immediately.

After going through what each player’s loadout would look like, realTheCrafter lists the many reasons why he thinks this mode would be perfect for those wanting a competitive fix.

Suggestion: Competitive training LTM from r/FortniteCompetitive

With many lamenting the current state of competitive Fortnite, whether it be due to heal-offs or camping in 1x1s, this mode could eliminate this by forcing players into the thick of battle without the need for the slower phases of the game.

Given that Epic just added two LTMs to the game in the form of Blitz and Team Terror, it’s unlikely this could be added anytime soon, but it’s nonetheless another example of the creativeness of the Fortnite community.

How to compete in Fortnite’s first Box Fight Tournament: date, prizes

Fortnite is about to launch its first-ever Box Fight Tournament, a creative 1v1 competition in an arena designed by winners of last month’s Princess Castle Creative Contest. If you’re interested in competing, here’s everything you need to know.

Fortnite is a competitive game at heart, but it’s also a wonderful platform for creative players. It’s the reason why the creative mode is so popular. Players can build their own islands and share them with others.

Last month, Fortnite celebrated its third birthday by hosting the Princess Castle Creative Contest. Essentially, players had to create and submit their own version of a Box Fight map.

For those who don’t know, Box Fighting is when two players are fighting within one tile of each other and inside a box. It’s unique in the sense that it combines competitive and creative skills.

Two players named HassanFTN and Shride won the contest. Their arena, named “Island of Dreams” (9005-6737-3429), was chosen to be showcased in the first official Box Fight Tournament.

How to compete in the Box Fight Tournament

To compete in the Box Fight Tournament, all you need to do is look for the Box Fight Tournament LTM on the main menu once it’s available.

However, there is an eligibility requirement. Players will need to have reached Open League (Division II) in Arena before the tournament begins. Don’t stress if you haven’t though. It’s very easy to do and will only take a couple of games.

The format is pretty straightforward. Players will duke it out in a one on one Box Fight against other players in their region.

It will follow a traditional tournament structure with multiple rounds. The more rounds you win, the higher you will climb. The player with the most wins at the end of the tournament is the winner.

Unfortunately, there hasn’t been any news on potential prizes yet. However, it will probably follow a similar system used in Wild Wednesdays. Keep in mind that these aren’t final, and they will be updated once more information is available.

Box Fighting requires calculated attacks and solid defense.

When does the Box Fight Tournament start?

Fortnite players don’t need to wait long. The Box Fight Tournament begins on Wednesday, October 28, which means it’s only one sleep away.

However, that also means if you haven’t ranked up enough in Arena to be eligible, you’ll need to hop in and get started before it’s too late.

Box Fighting is an important skill in Fortnite. In many ways, it’s what separates the wolves from the sheep.

If you’ve mastered it, the tournament is a good way to test your skills. Don’t be disheartened if you haven’t though. Taking part in the tournament is a good way to improve.
