When Will The Fortnite PlayStation Cup Take Place?

The Fortnite PlayStation Cup will take place this weekend, on Friday, January 14 at 19:00 CET and on Saturday, January 15 at 12:00 CET.

How Can I Participate In The Fortnite PlayStation Cup?

Only eligible players on PS4 systems or PS5 consoles can participate in the Fortnite PlayStation Cup. The tournament will be held in a solo format over two rounds. Simply select the PlayStation Cup in Fortnite's competitive menu to start the cup and join the first round.

  • Round 1 is an open competition where you will have 3 hours to play a maximum of 10 games and earn as many points as possible (only the top 100 players from each region will advance to Round 2.)
  • Round 2 consists of 6 matches in total. The best players from Round 2 of each region will receive a prize.


What Is The Point Distribution For The Fortnite PlayStation Cup?

The point distribution is arranged in such a way that there is a balance of points for achieving eliminations and placements in Round 1. Therefore, in Round 1, there is one point for each elimination. Since there is only one lobby of players in Round 2, eliminations are rewarded with 2 points instead of 1. However, the most points are again awarded for placement in a given lobby:

  • Epic victory: 30 points
  • 2nd: 25 points
  • 3rd: 22 points
  • 4th: 20 points
  • 5th: 19 points
  • 6th: 17 points
  • 7th: 16 points
  • 8th: 15 points
  • 9th: 14 points
  • 10th: 13 points
  • 11th - 15th: 11 points
  • 16th - 20th: 9 points
  • 21st - 25th: 7 points
  • 26th - 30th: 5 points
  • 31st - 35th: 4 points
  • 36th - 40th: 3 points
  • 41st - 50th: 2 points
  • 51st - 75th: 1 point

The PlayStation Cup is unfortunately not available in the Asia server region this time. Players in Japan are not eligible to participate. Probably because Fortnite was banned in China.

You must have reached account level 50 and have two-factor authentication enabled, among other requirements. Full details and eligibility requirements for the Fortnite PlayStation Cup can be found in the Fortnite PlayStation Cup Rules.

That's all there is to it. We wish you good luck in the tournament!
