How do I win the Grand Prize?

We will be using a two-stage competition to award our Champion Royale.
You will be assigned a group on arrival.
In the Group Stage, each group will be called to the main stage to play.
The matches will use High Score Wins to determine player ranking.

Here's how scoring works:
  • Victory Royale: +5 Points
  • Eliminations: +1 Point
  • 20 or More Eliminations : +10 Bonus Points

After all groups have competed, the Top 100 players from the Group Stage by SCORE, regardless of group, will play two or three Final Battles (time permitting) to battle for the title of Champion Royale.

Final Battle:

When you are eliminated a Fortnite Official will note your placement and number of eliminations.

The Grand Prize and the lion’s share of the pool, in order of amount:
  • The winner by score over the Final Battle matches will be crowned our Champion Royale
  • The runner up by score Final Battle will be crowned our Rust Lord
  • The player with the most Final Battle eliminations will be crowned as The Reaper a.k.a. The John Wick Community Excellence Award
  • The player with the most Group Stage Points will be crowned Jonesy-in-Chief, a.k.a. King Jonesy, a.k.a. Jones Malone
