Fortnite Marvel Super Cup
Starting November 21, the Fortnite Marvel Super Cup takes the stage worldwide, specifically, Europe, NA West and East, Brazil, Asia, Oceania and the Middle East. This competition makes it the first Marvel Cup from Epic Games to feature cash prizes for everyone instead of the standard cosmetics.
Additionally, the Venom Cup, which features a winnable cosmetic bundle, occurs on November 18. Players can participate in the Marvel Knockout Super Series and earn the newest Venom Bundle. Subsequently, anyone that’s participated in the Venom Cup and other three Marvel Cups will receive the Nexus War Glider for free.
Just like previous Marvel Cups, the Fortnite Marvel Super Cup features similar rules. Players will have to earn points through regular duos matches. Each duo will have three hours to play ten games and stack up as many points possible. Players can accumulate points through kills and placements. Only the top 1,000 players from Europe, Brazil, NA East and West will move forward in the first round. As for Asia, Oceania and the Middle East, only 500 players will advance.
