What is the Friday Fortnite format?
Friday Fortnite is a double elimination tournament featuring 16 duos competing against each other for the ultimate prize.
Although custom games are very much available in Fortnite Battle Royale, this competition opts to go with a format that involves public matches.
In each round, all of the teams matched up in the bracket will queue into a Squads lobby together, where they will then try and get as many eliminations as possible.
After two matches, the team with the most eliminations will advance to the next round. Players who try and sabotage their opponents in-game could potentially face disqualification.
Examples of sabotage include but are not limited to the following:
- Breaking or weakening opponent’s built or non built structures or cover by any means.
- Causing opponents to miss shots or miss opportunities for advancing their scores in any way shape or form.
- Building in front of your opponent.
- Boogie Bombing your opponent.
- The use of a boogie bomb on your opponent at any point in the game are subject to disqualification
