The community that it has become, Fortnite developers are working day and night to find ways to make this platform a one of a kind in such a way that always seems like a new innovation to people. With the healthy and amazing level of competition that this title has given birth to, Epic games announced recently that they will be introducing in-game tournaments.
What is so special about these tournaments is that it would allow players from all tiers to battle against each other. The point system would be similar to that in the regular PvP version where ranking higher in the match gets you to be on top. This would allow quite the competition and although rewards have not been made quite clear but special pins would be given to winners after a certain score threshold. Epic Games have made sure that matchmaking is done in the most fair possible way. In order to not make it too easy for some players and too difficult for others, players of similar tiers will be pitted against each other, allowing fair progression for all.
For now, no further details have been given regarding the tournaments other than a list of all their dates in the schedule which will be made available on their website shortly.
