Due to community feedback from the Duos tournament played on the 14th, Epic have made some significant changes to the format and scoring.
In order to avoid last week’s lag issues, this week’s event will be played on public servers rather than private matches.
Players will queue into 10 solo matches, and the scoring will be based on Victory Royales and Eliminations in each match.
The player with the highest score after 10 Solo matches will be named the winner. Victory Royales and Eliminations in this competition will be scored to determine placement at the end of the event. The top 20 players at the end of the Week 2 Summer Skirmish will be awarded. Scoring is as follows:
Victory Royales: +5 PointsEliminations: +1 Point20 or More Eliminations (per game): +10 Points and $10,000Most Eliminations Overall: Bonus $50,000
The July 20 tournament features a $500K prize pool. Here is the breakdown for how the prize money will be divided among the top 20 players:
