Fortnite Console Champions Cup Format
To participate in Round 1 of the Console Champions Cup, eligible duos must be ranked in any Open League or higher division of their respective region's Arena mode. Round 1 is only played for three hours. All teams can participate in a maximum of ten games in this first round.
The top-ranked teams from each region advance to Round 2 of the Console Champions Cup. In Round 2, teams compete in a single session lasting three hours. Teams may participate in a maximum of 10 games.
The best teams then advance to Round 3, which again features 10 games played over three hours. The same procedure is repeated in round 4. However, in round 4, teams can only participate in a maximum of six games within three hours. Should a team not queue up for the game mode and/or miss the start of a match, the match will be treated as if the team completed that missed match in last place and with no eliminations.
How many teams advance in each round?
The number of teams that advance in each round depends on the region. No information has yet been given for the current Console Champion Cup. However, if it plays out similar to the last Console Champion Cup, the rounds will look like this:
In Europe, Brazil and North America (East and West), only the top 400 teams advance to Round 2. In the Middle East, Oceania and Asia, 250 teams advance to the next round.
Round 3 of the Console Champions Cup will feature far fewer teams than the previous round. Only the top 50 teams from each region advance to the finals and Round 4.
