Epic Games will trial a new format for Week 4 of the Fortnite Summer Skirmish Series called “Hold the Throne”.

Hold the Throne will be a solo competition that focuses on which player can hold onto the top spot for the longest and earn the top spot.

Hold the Throne will provide competitors a number ways to earn points. A Victory Royale will be worth two points, while the score for a second or third place will be one point.

Four or more eliminations in a game will also be worth one point and the player with the most eliminations will get a bonus point plus a cool $50,000.

The player that holds the record for the most eliminations will continue to receive their bonus point every single game until another player “dethrones” them by beating their record.

The first player to earn eight or more points by the end of the competition will take first place and $67,500.

The Hold the Throne format is a clear attempt to make sure that players are active in the game and not rewarded for “turtling” in bases (something that has been criticised in previous weeks).

The continued format tests show that Epic is still considering the best format and look for the Fortnite esports.

The Friday competition will feature the likes of Ninja, Myth, Hamlinz, Daequan, CouRage, Gotaga, TimTheTatMan, Tfue, Poach, Hysteria, HighDistortion and more.

Saturday’s tournament is expected to feature more international players but follow the same format. Friday’s matches will begin at 5pm ET and Saturday’s at 1pm ET.

Fortnite Streamer Bowl II rules

Epic Games
Participants could only drop into 10 different matches for their total score.

The Rules for Streamer Bowl II were fairly straightforward if you’ve watched or participated in any competitive Fortnite events before. Players had 10 matches to drop into Solos games and attempt to increase their score as much as possible.

Five points were awarded per Victory Royale, with three for reaching the top two and one point from there. Kills also were worth a point each, which was of course the main focus for all of our top 10 finishers.
