Because there are no custom games or lobbies in Fortnite yet, the tournament is played on public servers using the following rules:
UPDATED: You must have your delay set to 120 seconds on your OBS settings when you are streaming, failing to do so will result in a forfeit and or a replay of the match that was played.

How To Win:
For this tournament you will play two games. Each game you must keep track of your kills for each game played. The combined amount of kills for each game will determine which team will win the match. If out of the two games played the kills are tied a third map will be played to determine a winner for the match.
You will party up as a SQUAD or DUOS with your opponent based on the type of match (1v1, 2v2). Any player inside of that queued session MAY NOT destroy any bases made by their opponent, make them fall, or any other actions that may help lead to that person’s death.
Examples of sabotage include but are not limited to:
- 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 disqualifications.
For no-shows in this tournament if you fail to respond within a fair given time frame you may be forfeited from the tournament.
To report another team for a no show for the match you will need to contact the UMG Admin Demo or Mike so they can handle it accordingly.
All forfeits will be handled and made by the judgement of the UMG Admin Demo or Mike.
The Friday Fortnite #4 tournament will be live-streamed on the UMGEvents Twitch channel, as well as on the individual channels of many of the participants.
