Full team rosters for the Fortnite World Cup
The Fortnite World Cup finally arrived. While the news in the last few weeks has been dominated by various console exclusive Fortnite tournaments, the biggest tournament for every platform is just about to begin. The qualification process went on for ten weeks and has yielded a line-up for the tournament that is definitely interesting.
Most major players managed to qualify, although some ended up struggling. Some big players like Cloak failed to qualify for both tournaments. Even among the players who have qualified, there has been quite a bit of movement between major teams. Some teams have even added players to their rosters at the last minute.

Team Kundgarna managed to sing a couple of qualified players just before the tournament began, giving them a much bigger roster at the event. This is how the team’s players at the event currently look:
- Nate Hill
Those are all the players who are signed to teams that are competing in the Fortnite World Cup. What is exciting about this tournament though is the amount of unsigned talent around. There will be plenty of players taking part in the tournament that are yet to make any waves on the competitive scene, and even a few big names without a current team.
When is the Tournament?
Friday is the official start of the proceedings, but the main tournaments aren’t due until the weekend. Friday will see the final Creative trials and a Celebrity Pro-Am. After these events are completed, the weekend is open for the more serious competitions.
Duos will be taking place on Saturday. There will be six matches in total and teams will be given points based on their performance. The Duo with the most points will win the event. The Solo tournament will also consist of six matches with the same rules. Ties will be decided based on numbers of Victory Royales. The points available are:
- Victory Royale – 10 Points
- 2 -5 Placement – 7 Points
- 6 -15 Placement – 5 Points
- 16 -25 Placement – 3 Points
- Each Elimination – 1 Point
The game is being played with the most recent version that is allowed in the Arena mode, this means controversial items like the storm flip are active but so is the siphon mechanic.
The event is due to start at 12.30 EST on Saturday and run through until 4.45 Pm. First place in the Duos cup receives a $3,000,000 share of the prize pool, so a lot is riding on this. The Solo event will begin at 12.30 pm EST on Saturday and also conclude at 4.4 with the same prize pool.
