As Fortnite enters a new phase as Chapter 3: Season 4 launches in just a few days, it’s time to change some things. Fortnite is one of the most popular Battle Royales out there and is played by all sects of gamers. Competitive gameplay has been extremely well received as it gives casual gamers the chance to show off their skills and win big.
Now, with the launch of a new season, Epic Games is introducing a lot of changes to Fortnite’s competitive scene. Arena Hype will reset as always, but this time players can expect a brand new format for the Fortnite Divisional Cup. Even Late Game, Zero Build and Collegiate Cups are being updated.
Let’s talk about the divisional trophies. In Season 4, this tournament will feature duo matches following the format described below. It might look scary at first, but it’s quite simple once you follow the arrows.
From September 24 onwards, a Placement Cup will be held in each region where players compete to be in one of three divisions – Contender, Challenger and Elite. The top 200 couples will join the Elite Division and can participate in the Elite Cup Weekly Final to win cash prizes. Remember that the Placement Cup only takes place once this season, while the Divisional edition takes place weekly.
It will also be a challenge to get the opportunity to play the Placement Cup. First, players must earn Contender Rank in the Arena prior to the cup in a competition that lasts two rounds. Eventually, 200 duos will be part of the Elite Division, while 1,000 will join the Challenger Division.
Divisional matches will be held on Wednesdays and Fridays each week, with the Elite Cup final taking place on Saturday. Right now, the top 40 duos in each tournament stand to win cash prizes.
If that much competition isn’t something you’re looking for, the general tournaments will still be available. Epic is working on the Late Game playlists to get rid of the issues and bring back the Late Game Arena, Quick Cups and Cash Cups. For non-builders, Zero Build contests will also be held three times a week.
