After three days of intense action, the qualifiers for the PAX West Fortnite Summer Skirmish are finished, and all that’s left now is the grand final.
The grand final will take place on Monday, September 3, live from the PAX West Convention in Seattle, WA. The finals start at 11am PDT (2pm EDT, 7pm BST), and will be broadcast from the Fortnite Fan Theater at the event.
The grand final consists on 99 players, who all qualified through the three qualifying heats held over the weekend at PAX West, fighting for their share of the $1.5 million prize pool.
The full list of qualified players can be seen below:
The final follows a similar layout, with players be awarded points over a series of 6 games. Points will be awarded for placements and eliminations in the games, with high placements and more kills earning more points, as seen below.
VICTORY ROYALE: +3 POINTS
2ND-3RD PLACE: +2 POINTS
4TH-10TH PLACE: +1 POINT
3-4 ELIMINATIONS: +1 POINT*
5-6 ELIMINATIONS: +2 POINTS*
7+ ELIMINATIONS: +3 POINTS*
*These points can only be earned once per match. For example, 10 eliminations would only earn you +3 points and any additional eliminations will not add points to your score.

Here is the breakdown of the prize pool, with an additional $25,000 bonus going to the players who achieve Victory Royale in any of the six matches.
There are plenty of recognizable names in the grand final, ranging from pro players like FaZe Tfue and Liquid 72HRs, to relative unknowns like Tylarzz, who shocked the world by winning the third day of qualifying.
With 99 entrants, it’s difficult to pick a favourite, but it’s guaranteed to be an exciting watch when the final takes place on September 3.
