The Twitch Rivals for Fall Guys will already be taking place today, August 28. Here you can find everything you need to know about the $50,000 tournament.
From the world's biggest streamers to some of the most popular sports teams, Fall Guys has captivated the masses since its release on August 4. The Battle Royale game of its very own kind has really taken the gaming industry by storm and since the little jellybeans are loved by everyone anyway, why not try something more esporting? We're proud to present: The Fall Guys Twitch Rivals with $50,000 prize money!
With $50,000 at stake, by far the largest Fall Guys tournament to date is at stake. Dozens of content creators will fight it out in the first competition of its kind.
Today, Friday August 28, you can follow the tournament live on Twitch at 1 p.m. PT. The participants will compete in 10 rounds and the winning team will take home the prize money!
Since Fall Guys does not yet have custom lobbies, the event will be based on a specially developed point system. 80 Twitch streamers will be divided into 20 teams. Each resulting group will play a maximum of 10 games - as long as they don't fail too often due to their well-trained opponents.
Points in the qualification rounds:
For every team member that makes it through the qualification rounds, the following points will be awarded:
- Round 1: 1 point
- Round 2: 2 points
- Round 3: 3 points
- Round 4: 4 points
- Round 5: 5 points
At the beginning, all teams will compete in six games. Once this point is reached, the knockout phase begins. Depending on the total score, the groups are then eliminated from each subsequent game.
The winners of a round will receive the following points for their team:
- Round 2: 20 points
- Round 3: 17 points
- Round 4: 14 points
- Round 5: 10 points
- Round 6: 7 points
This point system will gradually throw out as many teams from the tournament that in the end, only one team remains. We are as excited as curious to see how well the format is working and implemented and who will go home with the $50,000 crown in the end!
