YouTubers 'NerdOut,' in conjunction with online tournament organizers 'Flash Battles.' will be hosting a Fortnite tournament called 'Sunday Sabotage,' which will feature some of the top personalities from the game's community.
The PC/PS4 tournament will take place on Sunday, September 23 at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET and will feature 32 Duos teams battling it out for a piece of the massive $10,000 prize pool.
Aside from the big-name streamers and personalities that will be competing, members of the community will also be able to qualify via a series of qualification tournaments, the details of which are provided in the 'qualification' section below.
Sunday Sabotage will be double-elimination, featuring 32 teams of two playing against each other in the popular 'total of two' format. Teams facing each other will queue together in two public Squads matches, with the Duo that gets the most kills after the two games advancing.
One major difference between this tournament and others like it is the rule that allows sabotage between opposing teams.
The players may use any tactic they wish in-game to attempt to impede the efforts of their opponents. All instances of Sabotage are allowed. You may take any in-game action against your opponents to give yourself an advantage. These actions can even result in the death of your opponent.
