Fortnite Tournament!

  1. The current Fortnite game mode offered by the Munster Esports tournament is solo in a duo queue.
  2. Matches are played as a best of Three (3)
  3. Players should have their matchmaking region set on automatic. A player will create a lobby set to duos with no fill and invite the other player to the lobby . In the event that an incorrect format is used, the match must be stopped and reset. Previously played games with incorrect formats will not count towards the series. Players will play until the game ends (as defined below), and the winner will be determined based on the win condition (as defined below)
  4. A game ends when both players are no longer standing (as defined in 7) or the Victory Royale screen appears
  5. Players may still score eliminations after they are no longer standing (traps, grenades, etc.). Any eliminations that occur after the game ends will not count towards a players’ score
  6. A player is considered standing if they are not downed or eliminated. Thus, if a player is downed or eliminated, they are considered not standing.
  7. The player who has the most eliminations will win the game. If both players have the same amount of eliminations at the end of a game then the last player standing will win the game. In the event where both players have the same number of eliminations and are standing until the same time, the player who got the last elimination will win the game. Any further ties will result in the replay of the game in question.
  8. Any gliders/umbrellas, outfits, harvesting tools, back blings, contrails, loading screens, emotes, vehicles, or items that are currently disabled in public queues are prohibited from use for as long as they remain disabled in those queues.
  9. Only the normal Duos game mode can be played in official matches. Limited time game modes and the Squads mode are prohibited from play in official matches.
  10. Players may work together when playing. They also may kill steal, loot steal and follow each other around but are NOT allowed to destroy chests that the opposing player is actively going for or build a wall that intentionally blocks your opponent from getting loot. Intentionally blocking your opponent’s shots/travel or loot acquisition when not on a structure built by you is forbidden. Players are not allowed to cause the death, injury, or sabotage of the opposing player. This includes but is not limited to: intentionally destroying/damaging their built structures/cover, making them fall, purposely hitting them with boogie bombs or impulse grenades, or causing an interruption of healing. Shooting at or around your opponent in a manor to draw attention to your opponent is forbidden. To avoid any potential sabotage, stay away from your opponents.
  11. In the event that a player drops from the server during a game that player will no longer be considered standing and the game will continue until completion unless both players agree to a redo. In the event that a player drops from the server before any players are able to eject from the Battle Bus, the game must be redone. Abusing disconnects may result in a player forfeiting the match
  12. Matches are played as 1 versus 1, meaning that only one player may participate in the match for either side. No player substitutions may be made at any point during the match.


What are we playing the game on?

This tournament will be played on the gaming computers in the Munster Esports Arena.

What if I do not have an account?

You can create a free account to use for the tournament.

Can I use my personal account?

Yes. You may sign in and use any personal account you currently have.

I don’t like using mouse and keyboard. Can I use a controller?

Yes. You must supply your own controller; no controllers will be loaned out by Munster Esports during the tournament.

How much does this cost?


Is this going to be streamed?

Yes. Before you sign up you need to make sure you are signed for picture/audio/video release. If you are not signed up then you will not be able to participate in the tournament.

How do I check to see if I am signed up for picture/audio/video release?

Your parents will need to log into PowerSchool and double check your release status. We will have directions for this very shortly.

Why did you limit it to XX number of participants?

Time and space constraints.

Why did you set it up as a duos squad….etc. etc. etc.?

We do not have a beta key for Fortnite to run a custom tournament. This is currently the easiest way to run a 1v1 tournament without a beta key.

Will you run more of these in the future? (Fortnite, Madden, FIFA, 2K, etc.)

Possibly. Depends on the turnout and how respectful people are during the tournament. Everything in the future will depend on how the current tournament turns out?
