New Fortnite tournament pits pros versus the public

A new Fortnite tournament will square off pros versus the public, organiser Mogul has announced.

Called Fortnite: Pros vs Public, the tournament kicks off 30 May and will host five qualifier rounds, one per week. The top ten players from each qualifier, based on points, will play in a finals event scheduled for 4 July. The Adelaide Crows’ Legacy Esports Fortnite team will be the pros playing throughout the tournament.

Interested players can register here. Registration for week one ends at 5.30 pm AEST on 30 May with the actual event kicking off at 5.50 pm AEST.

“This landmark event for Australian Fortnite players further reinforces Mogul’s devotion to supporting and empowering grassroots players – amateur through to semi-pro – by giving players a platform to test their skills, win prizes, and get noticed by top teams like Legacy Esports,” Mogul’s Jamie Skella said of the event.

Exact prize details for the finals haven’t been detailed as yet, but Mogul’s said, “there is a Razer laptop and Razer Silver on the line for the victors.”

Good luck to all competing.
