The new Hearts Wild Cup in Fortnite allows players to compete to win a Valentine's-themed outfit early.
Epic Games has kicked off its latest lovely Fortnite event, Hearts Wild, as of yesterday, Feb. 8. Alongside several in-game challenges and interests, the company has also started a corresponding competition for eager players looking to get their hands on the latest themed gear.
Hearts Wild Cup Fortnite Details
The Hearts Wild Cup will run from today, Feb. 9 to Monday, Feb 15. It is a strictly Duos competition, meant to unite couples and close friends both in-game and out. Teams will have three hours to complete up to ten matches.
As with all Epic-thrown tournaments, players must be at least 18 years old or 13 with player permission and have accounts level 30 or above. They must have two-factor authentication (2FA) activated, be within the correct competitive region while using the same machine for every match, and follow all rules in the code of conduct.
The highest-scoring team in each server region will receive a Lovely Outfit and Heartblast Back Bling. Winners are chosen based on a system where teams earn points for their placement and number of eliminations. The breakdown goes something like this:
- Victory Royale: 42 Points
- 2nd: 36 Points
- 3rd: 32 Points
- 4th: 30 Points
- 5th: 29 Points
This pattern continues until the ranks drop below 24, where players are instead grouped into brackets:
- 25th-29th: 9 Points
- 30th-34th: 6 Points
- 35th-39th: 3 Points
- 40th-44th: 2 Points
- 45th-50th: 1 Point
Eliminations are added on top with each worth one extra point.
In the event of a tie, the winner is chosen based on most points scored, then most Victory Royales, average eliminations, placements, total time survived, and finally a coin toss.
More information concerning the rules and regulations of the Hearts Wild Cup can be found on Epic's official competitive webpage.
