Popular content creator and casual competitive hybrid Nick Eh 30 will be hosting his very own Fortnite event in collaboration with Epic Games

He’s a notoriously positive -- and popular -- Twitch streamer and Fortnite gamer. Less Ninja, he’s among the most recognizable faces in the game. We are of course talking about the man himself Nicholas “Nick Eh 30” Amyoony

This month, Nick Eh 30 will join an exclusive group of Fortnite influencers to have hosted their own Fortnite event in collaboration with the developers

Over the past 6 months, popular Fortnite streamers have earned the privilege of working directly with Epic Games to host their own event. Players like Emad, Bugha, Aqua, and Nyhrox were even given control of dictating event format to their own liking

Nick Eh 30’s case is no different; he has created a custom tournament format that players will have to adhere to. Here’s everything we know:

Event Type: Solos

Event Server: NA-East (only)

Format: Placement heavy (see more details below)

Advancement in the Nick Eh 30 cup is necessary to land in the money. The event takes place in two rounds, opens and finals. The top 99 players from opens will join Nick Eh 30 and round out a 100 person custom final event

The final lobby will compete in 6 games using the same format to crown a single winner. While Epic hasn’t released the exact breakdown of the $10,000 prize pool, expect for the top 10 or 20 players to take a piece of the pie

Point structure

Similar to Dreamhack and other off-shoot tournaments, placement points will slowly increment as the lobby shrinks. Here’s the exact breakdown:

  • Top 90, 80: +1
  • Top 75, 70, 65, 60, 55, 50: +1
  • Top 45, 40, 35, 30: +2
  • Top 3-29: +1 (incremented after each elimination)
  • Top 2: +2
  • Victory Royale: +5

Each elimination is only worth 1 point, making this event the highest win to elimination ratios. With 50 points for a win, you’re better off making every end game and avoiding all early/mid game altercations unless absolutely necessary

The Nick Eh 30 cup is exclusive to NA-East, meaning you’re going to have to change your region to compete. We’ve set up the leaderboards for this event in advance, you can check it out here

Players irrespective of Arena rank are eligible to compete in Nick Eh 30’s event. The only caveat is that you’ll need to make sure to click the “register” button on Epic Games’ website -- located here. Failure to register before the event start will lock you out for the entire duration. Don’t delay!
