Epic Games made an announcement on August 31 stating that the Trios Champions Series would be rescheduled to Sunday, September 1, and tons of competitive players are extremely upset.
The top Fortnite players who were able to qualify through the Arena mode are able to compete in weekly tournaments for cash and the chance to play in the final Champions Series Season 10 event.
Season 10 has been favoring Trio play where three players team up to make a squad, with several notable players creating new teams like Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore, and Thomas ’72hrs’ Mulligan.
The first two rounds of the week 3 Trio Champions Series were slated to begin on Saturday, August 31, with the top 150 players moving on to Sunday, September 1.
Due to an issue with Fortnite’s party services, all of the matches will be packed into Sunday.
Why was the Trio Champions Series rescheduled?
According to an announcement made by the official Fortnite page, the following tournament windows have been adjusted.
- NAE Round 1: 11 am – 2 pm ET
- NAE Round 2: 3 pm – 6 pm ET
- NAE Round 3: 7 pm – 10 pm ET
- NAW Round 1: 11 am – 2 pm PT
- NAW Round 2: 3 pm – 6 pm PT
- NAW Round 3: 7 pm – 10 pm PT
Community members were upset by Epic’s decision since players would be competing for almost nine hours straight, which certainly isn’t healthy.
Team SoloMid’s Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani was one of the first to speak out on the schedule adjustment.

The Fortnite World Cup Solo champion, Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf had a comedic response to Epic’s decision, which was clearly dripping in sarcasm.

A couple of Gen.G’s female Fortnite squad, Tina ‘Tinaraes’ Parez and Madison ‘Maddiesuun’ Mann, even hopped in to give their commentary.

With the professional community not being happy about the schedule change, a majority are still participating in the event.
Hopefully Epic can fix any issues to avoid another untimely competition reschedule to help keep the community calm, cool, and collected.
