Fortnite Nick Eh 30 Cup

Nick Eh 30 is part of the original crop of Fortnite streamers to hit the scene, and one of the only members of that group who still regularly plays the game. The always-positive Fortnite creator is now hosting a Solo tournament for his fans and followers, offering a prize pool of $10,000.

This will be Nick’s first time hosting a Fortnite tournament, although he’s no stranger to competition. Nick might be a content creator, first and foremost, but he competed in all of the Ninja Battles tournaments and even tried his hand at the FNCS in recent seasons.

Nick announced his upcoming tournament on Twitter on November 9. It will take place on November 22, giving players a chance to win some money before the Thanksgiving holiday.

According to a follow-up tweet, the games will only be played on NA-East, although it’s not region-locked and anyone can compete.

The tournament only has two rounds: Open Qualifiers and Finals. Since it’s his own tournament, Nick will automatically make it into the final round. He’ll join the top 99 players from Open Qualifiers, fighting for their share of the $10,000 prize pool.

The tournament will be placement-heavy, with placement points going up by 1 for each 10 placements until the top 75. After that, each five placements receive a point until they make it to the top 30, where each placement will be a point until the top two. The top two earn two points and the winner gets five. Each elimination is also worth one point.

We haven’t received official word of the prizing, yet, but we have to assume that it will be the same as the upcoming 1% cup. We’ll update this post if there are any changes.

1st    $5,000
2nd    $2,500
3rd    $1,250
4th    $800
5th    $450

You can register for the tournament here. Make sure that your account is older than 30 days and you have two-factor authentication enabled. Good luck to all of the competitors.

Epic Games explain wagering ban, key remapping, intentional disconnect & more

The Fortnite competitive team have clarified rules around wagering, disconnecting, and more ahead of the Season 6 FNCS.

Fortnite competitive FNCS

Epic Games have made a clarification to their ruling on several key competitive Fortnite topics, including wagers, intentional disconnects, and much more.

The Fortnite Season 6 FNCS is right around the corner, and Epic have begun to outline what competitive players can expect.

Now, they’ve released a blog post that outlines some of the biggest issues in the space.

Intentional Disconnects

Intentionally disconnecting from a match has been an issue in competitive Fortnite for a while. Ever since the shakedown mechanic has been in the game, players have intentionally left to prevent opponents from gaining intel on their teammates.

“Intentionally disconnecting from a match in an attempt to gain an unfair advantage goes against the spirit of Fortnite competition,” the competitive team wrote in a blog post. “Accordingly, all players must be sure not to disconnect from the game while in a knocked down, ‘Down-But-Not-Out’ (DBNO) state.”

Key Remapping & Wagers

Epic also clarified their stance on key remapping, saying that it is entirely allowed to remap keys in Fortnite. This appears to include the use of ReWASD and similar third-party software, as they specifically mention that double-movement binds are allowed on keyboard and mouse. They only said that inputs like macros are bannable.

On the topic of wagering, Epic said that they don’t allow any wagering within their games. “Betting, wagering, or gambling on any Fortnite match or game may result in one or more of the disciplinary actions discussed above – including, but not limited to, official warnings or an account ban.”

The article also covered some longtime rules like competitive warnings, region locking, and restarting your tournament after you’ve begun. Nothing has changed on this front, but they still went into detail in their explanation.

Whether or not you agree with some of these rules, it’s good to see that Epic are clarifying their stance on wagering, key remapping, and more. Now, players will have no excuse for breaking the rules, as they’re outlined in black and white.

Qualifiers for the Fortnite Season 6 FNCS are set to begin this weekend. Good luck to everyone competing!

Fortnite tournament canceled after game-breaking glitch goes viral

A game-breaking Fortnite duplication glitch went viral over the weekend, prompting DreamHack to cancel their open tournament.

Fortnite Season 6

DreamHack canceled their open tournament this weekend after Fortnite players find a game-breaking duplication glitch.

Fortnite is no stranger to game-breaking glitches and exploits. Most of the time, it takes a fair bit of effort to pull off the exploits. This isn’t the case in a glitch that went viral over the weekend.

Players recently stumbled upon a duplication glitch that was troublingly easy to perform – so easy, in fact, that multiple players discovered it by mistake.

To complete the glitch, all you need to do is have a full inventory. After that, you just have to throw a consumable item while picking up another item from the ground. This will duplicate the item you throw, and you can do it as many times as you want.

We’re not sure when this glitch first made it into Fortnite, but the first round of players who discover such an exploit usually don’t talk about it. It’s safe to say that this has been possible for at least a week in Fortnite Season 6.

DreamHack, who were hosting an open tournament this weekend, decided to reschedule; citing, “tournament integrity concerns.” As this was an open, remote tournament, it would be impossible to make sure no players ever abused this glitch.

At the end of the day, it’s better that everyone knows about a glitch like this rather than only a handful. Epic will undoubtedly do something about it in the next patch. If it didn’t go viral, they may never have found out.
