What are the rules of the league?

Participants may sign up as an individual or as a squad. Participants who sign up solo will be placed into a squad.** Each week, teams will compete in three games of Fortnite. The total points they earn in each game is determined using the following chart:

Total points per game = placement + 10 * number of eliminations
The team with the most points at the end of the season will be crowned the Fortnite League Winter 2019 Champions!

** About half of our participants sign up as squads or duos with friends from school.

Where will the matches be played?

Matches will be held at The Microsoft Store at the Westchester Mall in White Plains.

The Microsoft Store has a room at the back of the store specifically used to hold gaming events and tournaments.

(This location is tentative as we are currently working on securing a larger location in the White Plains area.)

What equipment is provided?

High powered ASUS gaming laptops, Xbox consoles and controllers, gaming mice, and HyperX headsets are provided. With your registration, you will also receive a league t-shirt!

Help! I can't make a match. Can I sub in a friend?

Yes! If you can’t make a match, you are responsible for finding a friend to sub in for you. 🙂

How do I register a team?

Each player on the team must make an account and register.

On the registration form, there is a field where you can enter your team name or the names of other players on your team.
