The Fortnite World Cup is finally upon us, and to kick-start the massive event, Epic Games are hosting the Creative Finals and a Celebrity Pro-Am.

After months of anticipation, the Fortnite World Cup has made it to New York City, set to feature several competitions with a combined prize pool of a whopping $30 million.

Two of those competitions will be the first ever World Cup Creative Finals and another running of the Celebrity Pro-Am, the details about which can all be found below. 

When do the Creative Finals and Pro-Am start?

Both the Creative Finals and Pro-Am will take place on Friday, July 26, making up the first of three days of action at the Fortnite World Cup.

The Creative Finals will kick off at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM BST and is expected last for a few hours, followed by the Pro-Am will begin at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET / 9 PM BST.

Both events will be livestreamed on Fortnite’s official YouTube channel, which we’ve included below for your convenience.

Who will be playing in the Creative Finals?

The Creative Finals will feature eight teams of four players, with each squad captained by a major figure in the battle royale community, including the likes of Ninja, FaZe Clan’s Cizzorz, Gotaga, Lachlan and more.

These players are earned their place in the Creative Finals after making it through the qualifying events that have taken place over the past few months, known as the Creative Trials. 

Here is a recap of the Creative Trails, showcasing exactly how each of these players and teams made it all the way to New York City. 

Creative Finals format

The competition will feature four different games, each of which will consist of three matches. The team that performs the best over those three matches will earn a silver llama for their efforts.

The final match, called Golden Games, will award a special golden llama to the winning squad, which could prove to be a tie-breaker of sorts if the llama count stands even at the end.

The team that finishes the four games with the most llamas will secure first place and the $1 million cash prize.

Who will be playing the World Cup Pro-Am?

This weekend’s Pro-Am will be the third ever running of the competition, and much like the previous two, it will be a very star-studded affair.

As usual, 50 prominent members of the Fortnite community have been paired with 50 celebrities, and they will all do battle for a $3 million charity prize pool.

Celebrities include athletes, musicians, actors, and others, some of whom are pretty proficient at Fortnite, while a few may have never even played the game before.

Ninja and popular DJ Marshmello will be teaming up for the first time since the pair claimed victory at the first ever Pro-Am last summer, while former League of Legends pro Airwaks and musician RL Grime will look to defend their title after winning it all last month in Los Angeles.

What format will be used at the Pro-Am?

Epic GamesThe format for the Fortnite World Cup Pro-Am.

Much like the Pro-Am that was held last month in Los Angeles, the one at the Fortnite World Cup features a scoring system that is based both on eliminations and placement.

Duos will earn one point per elimination, three points if in the top 15, five points if finishing in the top 10, seven points if they finish in the top five, and 10 points for a Victory Royale.

There will be a total of four matches played, and the Duo with the most points at the end will be crowned champions.

Has LazarBeam quit Fortnite?

Fans of YouTube star Lannan ‘LazarBeam’ Eacott have been questioning whether or not he’s quit playing Fortnite after not uploading a gameplay video in a good while. 

The original rise of Fortnite saw creators from across the globe explode in popularity regardless of whether they were focused on livestreaming on Twitch or making videos for YouTube.

However, some of the original big names like Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, and Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff, among others, have turned away from Fortnite and decided to play games like Valorant and Warzone. 

Plenty of creators still remain, though, they have issues with a lack of updates, and how the competitive scene is being run, to name just a few problems. Now, fans of LazarBeam have been asking if he is following the likes of Ninja and Tfue, and walking away from Fortnite. 

Lazarbeam is one of the most popular Australian creators around.

Did LazarBeam quit Fortnite?

Even though his fellow Aussies like Fresh, Lachlan, and LoserFruit have carried on playing Fortnite, LazarBeam hasn’t uploaded a YouTube video about it since mid-December. Though, he has tweeted about it and played the battle royale since.

In that time of not uploading a Fortnite video, he’s made videos on Among Us and Spellbreak, while also uploading his usual meme reactions from TikTok, as well as a more personal video reflecting on how 2020 went for him. 

In a recent stream though, he did say he was quitting the game after uninstalling. “I’ve decided to uninstall Fortnite. I’ve quit the game. I’m quitting it right now,” LazarBeam said. “I’m done forever.” Though, it’s hard to say if he’s being totally serious, given that he is one of YouTube’s funniest creators.

Will LazarBeam return to Fortnite?

It could be the case that he returns to Epic Games’ battle royale soon, perhaps once a new update is released. 

Other content creators have done similar, taking breaks because the devs aren’t rolling out as many regular updates as they used to, and the game feels a bit stale. But, we’ll just have to wait and see if that’s the case for LazarBeam whenever v15.30 launches.
