Fortnite: $5 Million Frosty Frenzy 2020, Everything You Need To Know

Learn about Fortnite’s all-new Frosty Frenzy tournament.

Each year around this time, competitive Fortnite players wait in anticipation for a significant tournament announcement. Chapter 2 – Season 5 is no different, considering there isn’t a lot happening outside of DreamHack and other third-party competitions. Speculation filled the air over the last two weeks, with some sources claiming that the Winter Royale would return for its third consecutive year. Epic Games took those rumors and promptly smashed them yesterday. Fortnite’s Competitive Team confirmed that the well-established Winter Royale would not continue this year in favor of a new tournament, dubbed Frosty Frenzy.

“Get ready to put your Fortnite skills to the test for a chance to earn a share of the $5,000,000 prize pool in the Frosty Frenzy tournaments! Form your Trio team to take on the rest of the Hunters starting on December 12 (Middle East Region will start on December 11). Eligible players of all skill levels are encouraged to participate, and those who do will earn the Skull Claus Spray for competing.”

Frosty Frenzy Format & Dates

Fortnite’s inaugural Frosty Frenzy tournament will take place on December 12 and December 13. It will be a trios competition, encompassing all seven competitive regions – NA East, NA West, Europe, Oceania, Brazil, Asia and the Middle East. The two-day, four-session format features two separate scoring systems. Epic Games’ Frosty Frenzy blog post explained the intricate structure.

“Frosty Frenzy is broken up into four Sessions spanning two days for each server region. Each Session will consist of two Rounds, with only the top 500 teams from NAE, NAW, EU and BR regions and the top 250 teams from OCE, Asia, and ME regions advancing from Round 1 onto Round 2 in each session. Competitors can compete in all four Sessions if they desire, so long as they meet the requirements described below ahead of time.”

Players can compete in all four sessions mentioned above, meaning they can multiply their earnings should they perform well enough. Each session highlights the same two-round format, which you can see below.

Round 1

  • Two-hour session
  • A maximum of six matches
  • Top 500 teams in the NAE, NAW, EU, or BR regions will advance to the second round
  • Top 250 teams in the OCE, ASIA, or ME regions will advance to the second round

Round 2

  • Three-hour session
