Starting on Saturday, prove yourself as a Solo and you could win a nice chunk of change!

In a blog post discussing the Season 5 FNCS prize pool and format, Epic Games also confirmed that weekly Solo Cash Cups will be coming back by popular demand. The first of these Solo Saturdays events is scheduled to take place this weekend, January 30.

Like FNCS, the Cash Cups will be cross-platform, and players must reach Champion rank in Arena to participate. The scoring system is more placement heavy than usual, meaning we may actually be treated to some intense, stacked endgames.

As previously mentioned by the developers, Solo Saturdays are intentionally timed to overlap with Round 3 of each week’s FNCS Qualifier. This is to give players who have already qualified or been knocked out a tournament with cash prizes to take part in.

Though the official rules have not yet been published, it is likely that similarly to the Monday Trio Cash Cups, these Solo Cups will not be region locked.
