Fortnite’s Solo Showdown Adds New Ranked Play

Fortnite’s new Solo Showdown, is a limited time mode that will not change the battle royale gameplay of the current Solo mode and all matches will be given ranking points.

Players’ achievements will be placed on a leaderboard that ranks players according to their performance in their first 50 games. The best players will win prizes, and the idea is that people will take it more seriously than the normal solo queue.

AWARDS
1st Place: 50,000 V-Bucks
2nd – 4th Place: 25,000 V-Bucks
5th – 50th Place: 13,500 V-Bucks
51st – 100th Place: 7,500 V-Bucks

The top 100 will be rewarded with various levels of V-bucks, the in-game currency, when the mode ends on Monday, May 21. If you are placed 51 through 100, you are going to get 7,500, that will normally set you back $60. Place between 50 and 5 and you’ll get 13,500 V-bucks, while fourth, third and second place get 25,000 and the winner receives a whopping 50,000. Do not get too excited, though: remember, this is a ranking of everyone that plays at least 50 matches in the mode.

Epic Games also said that it is utilizing the Solo Showdown as a foundation to understand how to construct great events for all types of players, and promised a major announcement about competitive play next week. Solo Showdown is already live and will remain available till Monday, May 21, at 10 a.m. ET. To learn more on the rules of the competition, you can check out Epic’s official guideline page.
