Fortnite Trios Cash Cup #1 – Final Results

Published

on

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.

Fortnite Trios Cash Cup Finals Results & Winnings

Not the cleanest first event, but acceptable nonetheless

As the name implies, winning players in the Trios Cash Cup received mighty dollar prizes for their efforts. Epic Games has decided to take a more spread prize pool approach which rewards the Top 150 players with cash. Here’s how the split worked out for the Trios Cash Cup:

  • Top 1 – $12,000
  • Top 2 – $9,900
  • Top 3 – $9,000
  • Top 4 – $8,100
  • Top 5 – $7,200
  • Top 6 – $6,000
  • Top 7 – $5,400
  • Top 8 – $4,500
  • Top 9 – $3,600
  • Top 10 – $3,000
  • Top 30 – $2,400
  • Top 50 – $1,800
  • Top 75 – $1,200
  • Top 150 – $900

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.

Fortnite season 8 cubed

Fortnite Season 8 just started, but it might not be your cup of tea. Here is when Fortnite Season 8 ends and Season 9 starts.

Fortnite Season 7 was out of this world in the most literal sense. But Fortnite Season 8 is even wilder. From a map filled with cubes to mysterious alternate realities, it’s already surpassed Season 7 on the crazy scale.

But that doesn’t mean Season 8 is for everyone. Some players are already asking when Fortnite Season 8 ends and season 9 starts. This article will answer both those questions and more!

Whether you love or hate the new season, you might be wondering when the next one will start.

When Does Fortnite Season 8 End?

Fortnite Season 8 will end on December 5, 2021. This will allow for Fortnite Season 9 to start just-in-time for the annual Holiday event.

Since Fortnite is reaching a climactic point in its overarching storyline, players can expect an end-of-season event. Fortnite Season 7 featured an interactive experience, and a similar event will likely be held at the end of Season 8.

When Does Fortnite Season 9 Start?

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 9 will start on December 6, 2021. Keeping with the recent trend, Fortnite Season start the day after the current season ends. It wouldn’t make sense for Epic Games to delay the start of Season 9 past December 6th.

Fortnite has made a habit recently of jumping from one season to the next with no breaks in between. There will likely be some downtime between Season 8 and 9, and it could be as long as 13 hours like the end of Season 7.
