Epic Games’ battle royale phenomenon “Fortnite” has reached 125 million players in less than a year, the publisher/developer announced on Tuesday. Soon, each one of those players will have a chance to compete in the game’s competitive 2018-2019 season.

Epic will be supporting community organized events, online events, and major organized competitions all over the world where anyone can participate and win.

Sony’s response to Fortnite controversy is embarrassing

  Sony’s response to Fortnite controversy is embarrassing For almost two days, Sony had stayed silent about the growing anger over Fortnite accounts that were locked out of playing on the Nintendo Switch due to use on the PlayStation 4. Now the company has finally issued a statement, but it says so little that it‘s practically useless for fans who were hoping Sony would listen to their complaints. Here‘s what happened: Accounts that have been played on the Nintendo Switch likewise seem to be locked out of the PlayStation 4. Sony never warned players that they could be locked out of using their accounts on future consoles due to playing Fortnite on the PlayStation 4. After the discovery, the company‘s social media account was bombarded with complaints about the situation. “We’re always open to hearing what the PlayStation community is interested in to enhance their gaming experience,” Sony said in a statement to the BBC. ”With more than 80 million monthly active users on PlayStation Network, we’ve built a huge community of gamers who can play together on Fortnite and all online titles.” What’s missing so far is any acknowledgement of the issue itself, or even a hint that Sony is working to improve the account lockout situation for its angry players. ”We also offer Fortnite cross-play support with PC, Mac, iOS, and Android devices, expanding the opportunity for Fortnite fans on PS4 to play with even more gamers on other platforms,” Sony stated.

Epic have announced the Fortnite World Cup as the eSports initiative for Fortnite . They have posted a blog post explaining more about the 0 million prize pool for the first season: Announcing 2018- 2019 fortnite competitive season.

Epic has previously announced 0,000,000 in prize money for the next year of Fortnite tournaments, and now they’ve gone a step further and announced the program through which that money will be distributed. The Fortnite 2019 World Cup will allow Fortnite ’s 125 million players to

Epic made the announcement during its “Fortnite” Pro-Am at E3 on Tuesday in Los Angeles. Fifty professional gamers and 50 celebrities paired up to compete for $3 million in prize money. Participants included streamers like Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, Markiplier and Myth; comedians Joel McHale and Ron Funches; NBA players Paul George, Andre Drummond, and Reggie Jackson; and more. Ninja and his partner DJ Marshmello won the event and split a $1 million prize that they will donate to their charities of choice.

“Fortnite” World Cup Qualifiers begin in Fall 2018 and will be based on merit, Epic said. It won’t sell teams or franchises, and it won’t allow third-party leagues to do so either. The World Cup itself will focus on Solos and Duos, but there will apparently be plenty of opportunities to squad-up competitively too.

Epic will share more information on tournament rules, player code of conduct, platforms, and the Fall 2018 schedule at a later date.

 

Kyrie Irving says signing extension with Celtics “just doesn’t make any sense” .
Because it doesn't, there are 86 million reasons for him not to sign an extension.Irving is in the same boat that both Klay Thompson and Draymond Green found themselves in — leaks come from somewhere about how their teams want to sign them to an extension next summer. Of course the teams would, it would save them tens of millions of dollars and get star players under control earlier. The question is why a player would want to do that (and no, Irving’s injury concerns do not override 86 million).
