For those in the San Diego area, the event can be attended live. Here’s how the schedule lines up on October 9. (All times are in Pacific Standard, the time zone for San Diego.)

  • 9:45 am – Arena Opens
  • 10:30 am – Pre-Show
  • 10:45 am to 2:00 pm – Zero Build Finale

As for those who cannot attend in person, watching on Twitch is the next best thing. As usual, a stream will be up on the official Twitch Rivals channel. Viewers who have their Twitch and Epic Games accounts linked within 14 days will receive one free cosmetic reward: the Purple Llama Football Spray.

Ordinarily, this requires a watch time of about 30 minutes. However, it is recommended to watch the entire stream to ensure you get the reward.

Here are the announced teams. Each team is named after their team captain and some of them are among the best Fornite players all-timers.

EMEA team captains:

  • Nikof
  • Archie
  • Rekinss

NA team captains:

  • Tfue
  • Aydan
  • B1urAntics
  • Building

LATAM team captains:

  • zEkO
  • p0me
  • Palermo
  • 1DrakoNz

Additionally, NickEh30, SypherPK, Annoying and five other teams have not yet been announced.

Scoring is as follows:

  • Victory Royale- 10 points
  • 2nd-5th- 7 points
  • 6th-10th- 5 points
  • 11th-15th:-3 points
  • 16th-20th:-0 points
  • Eliminations- 1 point

Total points will be added up to determine winners and who earns what amount of money.


Cash prizes for TwitchCon Fortnite Zero Build

As mentioned, the prize pool is a total of $200,000. However, the money does not go to just one team. Here’s how it breaks down:
  • 1st: $42,000
  • 2nd: $27,000
  • 3rd: $21,000
  • 4th: $15,000
  • 5th: $13,500
  • 6th: $12,000
  • 7th: $10,500
  • 8th: $9,000
  • 9th: $7,500
  • 10th: $6,000
  • 11th-12th: $4,800
  • 13th-15th: $3,900
  • 16th-20th: $3,000

Moreover, the player with the most eliminations will earn $200 bonus. Additionally, the money goes to a trio, so it will be split evenly three ways. While the money is a big draw, there’s another reason teams are going to want to win. The top placing team’s captain will get to set up an in-game cosmetic locker bundle. Ali-A, SypherPK and a few others have received this honor before.
