How to compete in the $1M Fortnite Marvel Super Cup

Fortnite and Marvel are ending the competitive season with the $1m Fortnite Super Cup.

Published

on

The Marvel takeover of Fortnite Season 4 has extended to competitive play through the Marvel knockout Super Series tournaments that have been taking place over the course of the past few months. Epic have been offering players free superhero skins by placing highly in the Daredevil, Ghost Rider, Black Widow, and upcoming Venom Cups.

As announced at the begging of all of this, free skins are not the end-game for Fortnite (no pun intended). All of the action will culminate in an epic $1,000,000 Duos tournament to end the season.

The Super Cup will be the first Marvel Cup to offer a cash prize to winners in each region. It will take place on November 21 and will give players a chance to implement what they’ve learned from the previous Cups and put it into action.

Format and Prizes

The Super Cup will be in the Duos playlist but there will be a few tweaks to the gameplay. First, this won’t be a Marvel Knockout game mode like the last few cups have been. Epic have also announced that eliminate players will now drop 20 materials to a cap of 200 – lower than the traditional 500 competitive cap. As you can probably expect, there will also be an uptick in superpowers available in this cup.

There was talk of previous Marvel Knockout performances playing a role in player eligibility, but the tournament seems to be open to everyone who wants to compete. Here’s a look at the scoring system for each match:

Placement
Victory Royale: 55 Points
2nd: 49 Points
3rd: 46 Points

22nd: 5 Points
23rd: 4 Points
24th: 3 Points
25th: 2 Points
26th-45th: 1 Point

Clix & Tarik Cohen win second straight Fortnite Streamer Bowl

The favorites going into the event, Clix, and Tarik Cohen bring home their second Fortnite Streamer Bowl wins. View the full results here.

Fortnite Streamer Bowl 2 winners

Clix, XacialT, and Tarik Cohen of the Chicago Bears won the Twitch Rivals Fortnite Streamer Bowl 2, giving Clix and Cohen their second straight win.

It should come as no surprise that one of the best players in the game, Clix, and his Duo partner from last year, Tarik Choen, only got better when they added a cracked community champion to their team.

The Trio of Tarik Cohen, Clix, and XacialT won the Fortnite Streamer Bowl 2, giving the former two players their second-straight victory in the event.

Clix is one player who knows how to dominate in the current Fortnite meta. With so few mobility options, he and his team constantly secured high-ground and controlled the lobby. When they didn’t they looked to pick off less experienced players on the low-ground.

The rest of the standings didn’t play out as predictably as the winners of the event, with some underdogs rising to the occasion.

Streamer Bowl 2 results

The Streamer Bowl 2 was tightly contested, with some of the OGs of competitive Fortnite proving that they still have it. Scoped and The Long Shots tied with Washed Boomers, led by Scoped’s old Duo teammate and Fortnite legend, Tfue.

After Tfue was Nate Hill’s team, The Hills, followed by Sommerset’s Winterset and EmadGG’s GGs Only. As Tfue pointed out throughout the tournament, many of these young Fortnite pros were getting beat by a Minecraft speed-runner.

The results outside of the top five are as follows:

6. GGs Only: EmadGG, Lynn Bowden, Savixc
7. Chuggas Champs: Chap, James Daniels, prevalesfnbr
8. The Rumblers: StableRonaldo_, Avonte Maddox, Goriadfn
9. Beast Mode: Bugha, Kurt Benkert, dnspectfn
10. Living Legends: Prospering, Saquon Barkley, akaseek
11. Sparkles: sparkes_qt, Graham Glascow, norcalnugz
12. Team Losers: Loserfruit, Amani Oruwariye, crazyggs
13. Cactus Club: Zemie, Calvin Ridley, Nevify
14. Benchwarmers: Aircool, Keenan Allen, grimgnx
15. The Huckleberries: ops1x, Kenyan Drake, 32wanted
16. Loud Ones: Alixxa, Austin Ekeler, jaceimdone
17. Skull Rangers: Tocata, Malcolm Elmore, Zipknow
18. Steamy Stackers: NICKMERCS, Logan Wilson, aliens_fn
19. Three Amigos: Ewok, Kyle Van Noy, mojo1x
20. Time In: – Ninja, Corin Kaufusi, BeastAFK
21. Pew Pew Pews: LosPollosTV, Chase Claypool, CBearFN
22. Avocado Toast: Maddynf, Jonathan Abram, Nukey1x
23. Quack Attack: DuckyTheGamer, Dalton Schultz, Senexfn
24. Skull Troopers: SypherPK, Kyler Murray, Committedg
25. The Controllers: Aydan, Jarvis Landry, Toomzy
26. Eh Team: NickEh30, Trey Quinn, Dawnswrld
27. Block Party: Fresh, Justin Jefferson, Ritix
28. Absolute zeroes: elded, Eddie Vanderdoes, adanfnn
29. Team 2K: Reverse2K, Baker Mayfield, UlitimateGG_
30. Aniquiladores: JuanSGuarnizo, Rick Lovato, Code_cloutzzy

This was another entertaining event for Fortnite fans, and it didn’t go the way a lot of viewers predicted. Sure, Clix was the favorite going into the event after winning last year, but the top five probably didn’t look how you thought it would when the event ended.

We’re excited to see the Streamer Bowl 3 next year and more events like it. Invitational Fortnite tournaments are always inherently entertaining, as viewers get to see household names battle it out. Hopefully, we can get some more of these while we wait.

How to watch the Fortnite Streamer Bowl 2

This is a Twitch Rivals event, so you’ll only be able to watch it on Twitch. The broadcast begins at 3 PM PST on February 4.

You can watch the perspective of any of the competitors, or watch the official broadcast on the Twitch Rivals channel, embedded below.

The first Fortnite Streamer Bowl was one of the most entertaining competitive Fortnite events of all-time. We had the biggest names in the game fighting it out – whether they were top-tier pros or content creators known for taking fall damage.

Guild sign two-time EU FNCS champ TaySon

Guild TaySon

Growing esports organization, Guild, has announced a new signing in two-time EU FNCS champ Tai “TaySon” Starčič.

Guild esports continue to pad their EU Fortnite roster with another top-tier signing. On February 2, the organization announced that they were bringing on back-to-back EU FNCS champion Tai “TaySon” Starčič.

Although they’re new on the scene, Guild esports has quickly become a top contender in the EU Fortnite region. In only the past few months, the org has signed Flikk, Hen, Anas, and now TaySon.

At only 16 years old, TaySon has earned over $200,000 over the course of his Fortnite career, with most of those earnings coming recently. TaySon has back-to-back FNCS titles, including one in both Solos and Trios.

“2020 was a landmark year for Guild Esports and Fortnite, with our talented roster dominating the competition to make us the current number 1 Fortnite team in the EU,” Grant Rousseau, Guild’s Director of Esports, said.

“Signing TaySon shows that we have no plans to slow down in 2021 – we’re ready to take things to another level and cement our position as the Fortnite team to beat. We’re the squad to watch out for this year, and we’re ready for our rivals to try to catch us”.

““I’m really proud of how far I’ve come and to be ranked as the number one player in Europe – now I’m ready to take the next step with Guild,” TaySon added.

“I’m determined to make myself into an even better player with the help and support of my new team and bring home trophies for Guild. You’ll be seeing us take over the league tables again soon, so you better keep watching!”

TaySon will represent his new organization in the upcoming Season 5 FNCS along with the likely trio of MrSavage and iDrop. We’re excited to see what’s next for him.
