In case any of you were wondering, it seems that Epic Games was serious about that whole providing $100,000,000 to fund tournaments for its insanely popular title Fortnite. In fact, the company has provided a few more details about their plans for competitions in the near future -- although, they still haven't revealed everything.
To start out, Epic stated in a post on their site that they plan to support a variety of events, including community organized, online, and the to-be-expected "major organized competitions". The plan is for anyone to be able to participate and have a chance at the big prize.
The big deal, of course, is the Fortnite World Cup. Qualifiers will begin in the Fall of 2018 and the whole thing will come to a head with the first Fortnite World Cup sometime near the end of 2019. Those who wish to qualify will do so strictly on merit and no teams or franchises will be sold -- by Epic or any third parties.
On another note, Fortnite players (Well, most anyway) will be pleased to know that Epic has implemented a player reporting system to Save the World with Update 4.4. The reporting system was detailed in the video below.
