Daily cups will return in Chapter 2 - Season 3!


Fortnite’s latest competitive season is ramping up to be one of the best in the Battle Royale’s three-year history. Although we likely will not see any more offline events in 2020, Epic Games is compensating for that loss exceptionally well. Thus far, we’ve learned that a Solo Fortnite Champion Series will be the marquee event for Chapter 2 - Season 3.

Additionally, DreamHack announced a monthly $250K USD online open tournament, which will begin in July and last until January of 2021. We also know that Solo and Trio Cash Cups will provide professional players with weekly tournaments to line their pockets and continue performing in competitive matches.

The last shoe to fall this season came in the form of Daily Cups. Last season, Epic Games introduced Daily Duo Cups that ran daily from March 25 to April 30. Players clamored for more Daily Cups, and the Fortnite Competitive Team has obliged. Beginning on July 14, all regions and platforms will see Daily Trios Cups in the compete tab. However, this iteration of Daily Cups is much different than what we saw in Chapter 2 - Season 2.

Daily Trios Cup Format

This time around, the format follows a similar beat to the Chapter 2 - Season 2 Daily Duos Cups. Each session will last three hours. Trios have a maximum of ten matches to play out over that time. The ruleset listed on the Fortnite website lends more details into the format.

“Each session will last approximately three (3) hours. Players may participate in a maximum of ten (10) matches during any session. Players will earn points based on the scoring system listed in Sections 2.4.2 and 2.4.3 (as applicable). Matches for a session will count only if the match begins before such session window closes.”

Daily Trios Cup Scoring System

Epic Games has experimenting significantly with different scoring systems since FNCS Duos in Chapter 2 - Season 2. A lot of scoring systems over time reward w-keying too much and players have spoken out about this fact. For the first time in competitive Fortnite history, Epic Games are implementing an elimination cap for Daily Trios Cups. Each elimination in the daily tournaments will yield one point; however, trios cannot earn any additional points after reaching 20 eliminations. Under this new scoring system, placement points will start at 25th place.

  • Victory Royale: 14 points
  • 2nd: 11 points
  • 3rd: 9 points
  • 4th: 8 points
  • 5th: 7 points
  • 6th: 6 points
  • 7th - 8th: 5 points
  • 9th - 10th: 4 points
  • 11th - 13th: 3 points
  • 14th - 17th: 2 points
  • 18th - 25th: 1 point

Prize Pool

PC and Console will each have separate tournaments and prize pools. Last time around, only the winners received a cash payout. For Chapter 2 - Season 3 Daily Trios Cups, the top three teams from each platform and region will earn some money every single day.

Event Prizes - PC - All Regions

  • Rank Prize
  • 1st $1,200
  • 2nd $900
  • 3rd $600

Event Prizes - Xbox/PS4/Mobile/Switch - All Regions

  • Rank Prize
  • 1st $1,200
  • 2nd $900
  • 3rd $600

The prize pool calculates $1.47 million when adding up the prizes per week and multiplying it by the seven competitive regions. It is another massive chunk of change that Epic Games is providing to the competitive scene. There is no shortage of tournaments in Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 3. Epic Games continues to produce prize pools of truly unfathomable proportions.

Daily Trios Cups will commence on July 14 and conclude on August 21.
