Epic completed their first Trios tournament this weekend. Take a look at the Trios Cup results and when the next tournament will take place.
The first Trios Cup wasn't exactly bug-free. Some of the top names in Fortnite placed highly, but that was with default harvesting rates.
In response to the bugs in the first round, Epic announced a second Trios Cup for later in the month. They also confirmed that Trios Arena will remain in the competitive playlist until the end of the season.
Round 1 Results
While addressing the material drop issue in the Trios Cash Cup, we ran into a different issue. We’ve decided to run the Trios Cash Cup with the default harvesting rate and without material drop for the rest of the weekend.— Fortnite (@FortniteGame) July 13, 2019
The first iteration of the Trios Cup wasn't exactly what a lot of players expected. Epic appeared to fumble the competition before it even got started, finding a bug that wasn't allowing siphon or material gain upon kill.
When trying to fix this problem, Epic ran into another issue and decided to run the tournament with the default harvesting rate.
This kind of change is nothing new to the competitive Fortnite community. Epic routinely makes major changes before tournaments - the only difference was that this one wasn't intentional.
Still, the tournament took place and saw the top-performers rewarded. Here are the top three teams from each region:
- NRG Zayt, Ghost Saf, Ghost Bizzle: 138
- Nittle, woofgang crimz, Spades: 121
- FaZe Megga, Userz, FaZe Dubs: 117
- rehx, Liquid Cented, FLY Edgey: 135
- Sogys TV, Devious, LG frostyZK: 129

Round 2 is Coming
Please be aware that in this tournament, teams will be instantly disconnected from the match as soon as the last player on the team is eliminated.— Fortnite (@FortniteGame) July 13, 2019
We will run an additional one-day Trios tournament on July 21. Arena Trios will also remain enabled until the end of this season
It's fair to say that round one of the Trios Cup wasn't exactly what Epic wanted it to be. In response to the outcry about the material change in the first iteration, Epic announced round two of the Trios Cup, which will take place on Sunday, July 21.
As you can see from the tweet, this is only going to be a one-day event. It's unclear what the format will be, but the best guess is that Epic will include all of the qualifiers from Day 1 of the first Trios Cup.
