Fortnite World Cup: Qualifier Results Infographs
The Fortnite World Cup Qualifiers had its final week on June 21st, 2019. After 10 weeks of gruelling competition, almost 200 players from around the world qualified for the Fortnite World Cup Finals to be held in New York City next week July 26-28. The following infographs show all the players who qualified for the finals, in addition to their score they qualified with and the regional average.
If you look closely, the more populated regions actually scored lower points to qualify than the smaller ones. There's a lot of potentially different reasons for this:
- Tougher competition means it's harder to survive later/get more points
- Being dominant in a region means you'll consistently farm kills and make it to end game
- Smaller regions have more aggressive playstyles, and their best players are adept at getting more kills than larger regions
It's hard to say which is the case. From previous international tournaments, we've seen that Asia in general tends to play a lot more aggressively than most western players. However, we've also seen historically that at the highest levels of Fortnite, that doesn't tend to be the best strategy, even with kills giving more points.
The level of competition for these qualifiers were wild, and it should be pretty safe to say that everyone who qualified is likely one of the best Fortnite players in the world. Even more impressive is that multiple players were able to qualify for both the duos and solos competition. So a big shout out to the following 22 players:
