Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season will soon be holding its grand finale via a $1 million Super Cup, and the best thing about it is participating in the tournament is super easy.
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 is reaching its last days after several months of Marvel-filled awesomeness. However, developer Epic Games won’t let the season end without a thrilling event. The good news is almost anyone can sign up and participate in the upcoming $1 million Marvel Super Cup.
Here are all the details interested players need to know about the tournament:
How to Join The Tournament
One would expect that with such a massive prize pool, the requirements in joining the tournament will be difficult to meet. However, for this contest, that is obviously not the case. As a matter of fact, Epic Games is kind enough to let any player compete in the upcoming Super Cup.
→ Lifetime account level 30 or higher
→ Account must have 2FA on
→ Full party must meet the above requirements as well.
Reminder: Any player who participates in all four cups will unlock the free Nexus War Glider for participating in the full series!

There will be no qualifiers or any of that sort for the upcoming tournament. When the Fortnite Super Cup kicks off, a competitive tab will be added on the game’s main menu and all players have to do is click join.
Of course, this doesn’t mean that there will be totally no qualifications for players to participate. Only players who have registered their account with two-factor authentication and with a level of 30 and above will be qualified to join the tournament.
What to Expect
The Marvel Super Cup follows the same rules as the past Fortnite Super Cups. The game will pick winners based on a point system. Duos players will have to accumulate 55 points in order to get first place.
During the initial rounds, each duo would need to join 10 games for three full hours and accumulate points through the process. The overall number of kills and placement in matches will determine the final points given to the duo.
At the end of the first round, the majority of players will get kicked off the tournament. The number of players that will advance will depend on the region they are playing from. Players from Brazil, Europe, North America West, and North America East will each have 1000 players advancing to the next round. On the other hand, the Middle East, Oceania, and Asia regions will each only have 500 players advancing through.
Schedule and Rewards Distribution
Every regional tournament will have its own cut of the $1 million prize pool. However, the amount will vary depending on the popularity and density of the region. Based on the region, the first placers will receive around $2000 to $4000 while the last placers will get $400 to $600.
The Fortnite $1M Marvel Super Cup will begin at 1 PM EST or 10 AM PT for European countries. This will be immediately followed by the North American tournaments at 5 PM EST. Broadcasts of the tournament will only begin on the second round of the tournament via Fortnite’s official Twitch and YouTube channels.
