The July 13-14 weekend brought the first installment of competitive Trios Fortnite. It wasn’t the smoothest ride, but the initial launch is bound to show a few cracks. Let’s look at how the weekend went.
The first Trios Cash Cup took place on July 13 and 14 with some unexpected changes coming to its material looting. While the changes could be ‘adapted to’, the sudden nature made the tournament a fluke in many players’ eyes.
With that said, the overall tournament experience was still an extremely fun experience to watch. If Epic Games can work out the problems quickly, we might be looking at the new definitive competitive experience.

Competitive Fortnite is currently played across six different regions. The Cash Cup’s total prize pool was $1,000,000 dollars across all regions. Although the North American and European regions are the heavy-hitters, we’ve provided the placements for the other three regions in case you are interested in their stats.
As with all previous online tourneys, the Top 3000 players from July 13 moved on into the July 14 Final. The Top 10’s from each region are listed below. Many major professional names appear like Tfue, Bizzle, Aydan, and more.

Due to complications with the Trios Cash Cup, Epic Games has said that they will be running another tourney later in the month. Additionally, we’ve learned that Trios Arena will remain active ‘until the end of the season’.
We don’t yet know if Epic plans to remove Trios, but highly doubt that it’ll be gone for long. The event got overwhelming support with hundreds of thousands of viewers across dozens of the streams. Trios gameplay speeds up the action, but places a further emphasis on teamwork over individual talent.
We understand that hitches in the normal gameplay algorithm can be hard to deal with, but we’ve come to trust Epic’s speedy fixes. Understandably, some pros were not happy about the first event and want to see drastic improvements before participating again.
As Epic Games releases more information about the second cup, we’ll report on its arrival. Until then, check back regularly for more news on everything Fortnite. We’ll be running expansive coverage on competitive content leading up the FWC Finals, but you can expect our regular content to stay on track as well.
