‘Fortnite Championship Series’ is a new international tournament organised by Epic Games starting on 17th of August 2019 and the selection criteria will be same as that of ‘Fortnite World Cup’ which ended up just a month ago whose winner was a 16 year boy Kyle Giersdorf (Bugha). This time the prize of the tournament is estimated to be more than $10 million.
The selection process will be similar to that of Fortnite World cup. So, any of the players who meets the criteria for this championship can qualify to play in trios i.e ‘Champion Divison in Arena Mode’ and fight for their spots. As it is confirmed from ‘Epic Games’,every player should have to activate two-factor authentication of Epic Games and have to participate for five weeks of open qualifiers. As this tournament has got three division so it is difficult to say how the players are going to be ranked. And one important thing is that each qualifier round will have its own prize pool with millions of bugs.

All the teams who are competiting will get series points based on their placement each week.
