Fortnite: $10,000 Nick Eh 30 Cup Format, Scoring System, Dates, Prize Pool & More!

A brand new Fortnite tournament featuring Nick Eh 30 is on the horizon!

Fortnite content creator and occasional competitive player Nick “Nick Eh 30” Amyoony revealed on his Twitch live stream that he has put together a tournament in his name, dubbed the Nick Eh 30 Cup. Much like the Benjyfishy, Mongraal, MrSavage and Emad Cup, Nick Eh 30 worked constructed a solo tournament with a unique scoring system with $10,000 on the line. This new tournament comes when the competitive Fortnite season is dying down in the wake of the Fortnite Champion Series. It’s the perfect time for somewhat of a casual Fortnite competition with some moderate prizing up for grabs.

Nick Eh 30 Cup Format

The family-friendly content creator developed a solo tournament alongside Fortnite’s tournament runners, which will only occur on NA East servers. Players from the different regions can partake but will be doing so at much higher pings. It might be worth it considering the $10,000 on the line. The Nick Eh 30 cup will occur across two rounds and seven total hours of gameplay. Nick Eh 30 himself will be waiting for all 99 qualified players in the Grand Finals. Here is a brief breakdown of the two-round format:

Nick Eh 30 Cup Scoring System

These creator/pro cups typically feature wildly different scoring system than Epic Games usually puts out. The Nick Eh 30 Cup will follow that same beat. Placement points for this competition will begin with one point at the top 90 and will continue until the five-point Victory Royale. Each elimination is worth one point. It’s a placement-heavy approach that Nick Eh 30 took for his first-ever Fortnite tournament. See the full scoring system below:
