The Chapter 2 Season 6 Fortnite Champion Series has concluded and there’s still nearly two months before Season 7 begins. To bridge the gap between the two circuits, Epic Games is hosting the FNCS All-Star Showdown. The top players in Competitive Fortnite are set to compete on community-built maps in Creative mode for the first time ever.
The All-Star Showdown is the first tournament of its kind, crossing over the competitive nature of FNCS with the creativeness of the community. Each aspect of a competitor’s game will be tested. This will culminate in a Solo Championship that takes place on maps built by three creators.
As if that isn’t enough, any player can load up Creative and play on the exact maps the pros will battle on in the All-Star Showdown. The event will run from June 11-26. It will feature a $3 million prize pool, taking place on five brand new Creative maps. The Showdown’s maps are created by three designers: ImmatureGamer, Enigma and Dummblond, all of whom are partnered and experienced Fortnite map designers.
The All-Star Showdown schedule
The event technically begins on June 11, with the Hype Days. These events are held by top players to showcase the Showdown’s challenges. Next, the Solo All-Star Play In runs from June 18-20, with ten spots in each region up for grabs. There are four rounds to play for players to qualify, with any eligible Champion League player able to compete in Round 1. Following Round 1, here’s how the qualifiers break down:
- Europe, NAE, NAW, and Brazil – Top 2,000 players in each Region from Round 1
- Asia, OCE, and Middle East – Top 1,000 Players in each Region from Round 1.
- Europe and NAE – Top 600 players in each Region from Round 2
- NAW and Brazil – Top 500 players in each Region from Round 2
- Asia, OCE, & Middle East – Top 350 players in each Region from Round 2.
- Top 100 players in each Region from Round 3.
Once the players from each region have qualified, they’ll take part in the real event from June 23 through June 26.
