Back with a bang! The Elite Cup Series returns with what promises to be its most thrilling contest yet.
This season’s FNCS may still be a few weeks away, but that doesn’t mean that competitive Fortnite fans are starved of content. The Practice Server scrims Discord has teamed up with iconic esports org FaZe Clan to throw the “FaZe Clan Elite Cup”.
Running April 9 to April 11, the event will showcase top tier talent in a Trios format, and will be the first real indication of which teams are looking hot in Season 6. To up the ante even further, Nissan has jumped on board as lead sponsor, putting a total prize pool of $25,000 up for grabs.
Whilst the tournament is largely invite-based, there is also an open qualification route. All Practice Server members and players ranking in Gold Division for East Open Scrims will be eligible to play in the first qualifier.
From here, the top 99 trios will move onto Heats and then Semi-Finals. When all is said and done, 8 teams will have earned their place among the pros in the Grand Finals.
