Fortnite has been recently ramping up their efforts to create a more competitive experience for high tier competitive players outside of traditional arena play. There have been recent Dreamhack Cash Cup Extras to go along with standard Cash Cups. Now, just announced there will be a test event, exclusively for the EU region, giving a unique competitive experience.
The implementation of Open and Aura Scrims will begin on April 27th allowing for Trios to hone in their skills for upcoming events. There will be two divisions with players being broken up as follows. If your Trio was within the top 500 teams from the Chapter 2 Season 5 FNCS Series Points you qualify for the Aura division. For everyone else within division 3 or higher you will be placed within the Open division. Important to note is that top performing players from the Open division will get a promotion to the Aura division, and players who may be inactive or performing poorly will be relegated back down.
Once play begins on the 27th there will be three sessions per week giving your trio a chance to compete with the top players of the region. As always the scrims will enforce the Fortnite rules and regulations for competitive play, which you can find here.
This is a very strong step in the right direction for Forntie Competitive play. Now the only question is will these scrims run smoothly, and will they be included in other regions across the globe?
