Check out the day one results from the second annual Fortnite Winter Royale.


The Winter Royale 2019 tournament is officially underway, and players can rejoice with increased placement payouts. News broke late yesterday that Epic Games decided to expand the tournament's three-day prize pool to over $23M USD per region per console. That means that PS4/XBOX, PC and Mobile/Switch players all have the opportunity to place and earn some cash. As expected, many professional players crossed into enemy territory by tackling high pings in different regions. Not only would this prove their talents as players, but also their abilities to play under unfavorable conditions. Professional players did not particularly enjoy the format of day one but participated anyway. Let's take a look at how the top-ten of each region shook out when the competition closed.

Note: There were a number of scoring errors during the course of the tournament. As a result, many players either dropped down or moved up after Epic Games applied all of the scoring fixes. The Fortnite Tracker website now reflects all of the correct scores and placements.

NA East

Fortnite Winter Royale 2019 Day 1

FaZe Diggy and Marzz took first place on day one of the NA East Winter Royale. Their performance yielded 146 points, and they managed to complete 15 matches. Marzz and Diggy's five Victory Royales separated them from their competition, given the format. A whopping 75 points came from their five wins, which means they accumulated 71 eliminations over 15 matches. This talented duo walked away with $8K USD in total prize winnings for day one of the Winter Royale.

Other notable duos in the top-ten include Ajerss and Ghost Gaming's innocents who placed second along with premier NA West duo KNG Maken1x and Frapai, who finished in third place. Popular streamer and professional players Tfue also reemerged at the top of an NA East leaderboard along with a new duo partner, Scoped.
