The top players will win prizes-the idea is that people will take it more seriously than the regular solo queue. Not bad! But it's not exactly free money, because you will have to put in some decent hours to complete 50 matches in under five days. Epic Games recently launched a new feature that allows players to finally have a ranked mode.
In an announcement made earlier today, Epic Games has revealed their latest in a growing list of different ways to play Fortnite, though this time the going will be quite rough. The Solo Showdown rules say that 50 matches are needed to enter the competition, with first place obtaining 50,000 V-Bucks.
Unlike the game's previous limited time modes, such as the recent introduction of Thanos in the Avengers: Infinity War crossover event, Solo Showdown does not change the core Fortnite Battle Royale gameplay. Upon the conclusion of each match, you'll earn a number of points based upon your final positioning. Instead, anyone who opts in to the event - only playable in Solo - will compete directly against other players. The prizes for the rest of the top 100 aren't anything to stick your nose up at, either: 2nd-4th place will get 25,000 V-Bucks, 5th-50th will get 13,500, and 51st-100th will get 7,500. At the end of those 50 matches, a score will be given. All of which consist of Fortnite's V-Bucks currency, though.
JR Smith Shoves Al Horford in Celtics-Cavaliers Game 2
At least Smith can admit that he blatantly fouled him, but it was the way in which he did it that makes it so outrageous. Lue has every reason to swap Smith with Kyle Korver to get some more consistent shooting in the starting lineup.
The Fortnite Solo Showdown is the first instance where Battle Royale players who perform well can earn V-Bucks.
In case the very concept of a hundred-person battle to be the last one standing wasn't hardcore enough for you, Fortnite is making some promising moves toward a dedicated competitive mode.
It's also worth noting that just because there's a folder named Comp doesn't explicitly mean the mode is coming soon, or at all, but it's very likely.
