Fortnite: September 18th Solos Cash Cup Recap and Results

The September 18th Contender’s Solos Cash Cup finished with some newer faces coming out victorious. In general, the results of these Cash Cups vary due to the solos format. Players can only rely on themselves in these tournaments and the variance level increases significantly. At any given moment, a player can fall a heavy sniper effectively ruining that match. Fortunately for all players, there is plenty of wiggle room as they all have a maximum of 15 games to work with. The Cash Cup format allows players to blend w-key matches with placement matches to utilize the opportunity. Let’s see who triumphed across all regions for this iteration of the Solos Cash Cup.

NA East

Taking home the win for the NA East region was Ferrrnando1x. He began the tournament with a six elimination Victory Royale and never let the lead slip away. Ferrrnando went on to compile 52 eliminations in total to compliment 4 Victory Royales. His effort also yielded Victory Royales including 10, 9 and 6 eliminations. Overall this amounted to 116 points, which gave Ferrrnando the win by just 5 points. The first time winner will be looking to build on this performance with plenty of Cash Cups remaining.

NA West

After calling his shot, KNG Maken1x captured the NA West Solos Cash Cup victory. The competition was not even close in retrospect as Maken dominated with 132 points in total. He played out 13 matches and earned 3 Victory Royales throughout the tournament. Maken amassed 69 eliminations in his winning effort with a singular performance of 14 eliminations in his final game.

Chapix 74 took down the European Solos Cash Cup narrowly over NRG benjyfishy. He joins a shortlist of players to win consecutive Solos Cash Cup tournaments. Chapix and benjyfishy tied in points at the conclusion of the tournament, but the tie-breaker went in favor of chapix. Over 13 played matches, chapix earned 3 Victory Royales. His first match accounted for one of those Victory Royales in which he dominated with 18 total eliminations. In all, his effort produced 67 eliminations, which fell short in comparison to the 73 eliminations of benjyfishy.

A tie-breaker ultimately decided the victor, according to the Cash Cup rules:

“Tiebreakers will be determined in the order presented here: (1) total points scored; (2) total Victory Royales in the session; (3) average eliminations in the session; (4) average placement per match in the session; (5) total seconds survived across all matches; and finally (6) a coin flip.”

Chapix won due to his 5.15 average eliminations per match compared to benjyfishy’s 4.87. We can expect similar results going forward as the Europe region possesses an endless pool of talent.
