Join us for our first Fortnite tournament and hopefully the first of many! Computer Upgrade King will be providing i5/1060/240hz setups which are amazing for Fortnite!

We will be holding a solos tournament using a format called the bounty system. You will play 8 matches and report results for each then get points based on placement and kills to determine the winners. $10 of entry goes to the prize pool per player. There will be play/practice time before and after the tournament (see schedule below).

All matches will be played on computer. Controllers are allowed but you must bring your own as well as a usb cable to connect. For mouse/keyboard players it is recommended that you bring your own peripherals but we do have some available for use. It is recommended that everyone bring their own headset if possible but we will have some available.
