November 16, 2020: Details of the EU Encore tournaments have now been revealed.
Fortnite tournaments don’t come around too often, but when they do, they normally have a desirable prize pool. If you are a fan of free items or V-bucks – and let’s be honest, who isn’t? – then you better have a good excuse to not participate in these tournaments. In fact, it’s never a waste of time, as you even get a prize for participation.
While playing the odd tournament is good fun, trying to compete in every one of them is easier said than done. Sure, you could just sign up for every tournament and hope for the best, only to find out that the event is region-locked, or that the prize pool is disappointing. But that’s where we come in. We want to make your life as easy as possible by providing a list of the Fortnite tournaments to help you to pick and choose the events that most appeal to you. There is nothing worse than winning a tournament not worth winning.
So if you want to stay up to date with everything Fortnite, including a regularly updated list of tournaments, we’ve got you covered! For more fantastic Fortnite content, check out our Fortnite item shop guide, our Fortnite v Apple timeline, or get the latest Fortnite patch notes.
