When does it start and how to get in

Season 8 has passed halfway, and Epic Games has shared an update on all the information you need to know about the Fortnites Trios Hype Cup throughout the rest of the season.

Participating in a Hype Cup is a great way to get a taste of Competitive Fortnite without the pressure of a cash prize tournament. Here’s everything you need to know about this week’s repeat of the Trios Hype Cup – and more …

LATEST – Details of the next event

Like the Trios Cash Cup, the Trios Hype Cup takes place on a Monday – however, it’s just at a slightly earlier time. To participate in the next Trios Hype Cup, stay free November 8 at the following times:

  • 09:00 PST
  • 12:00 EST
  • 17:00 BST

You do not need to do anything special to get in, all you have to do is sign up for the playlist when it is active – which is from the time indicated above.

However, the Hype Cup is a must-attend event for anyone wishing to participate in Cash Cup tournaments. You earn Arena Hype to compete, and that’s what you need to raise your Arena rankings – You must be in the Champions League to qualify for a Cash Cup at all! Fortnite have shared a few of the minor rule changes below – although this should work in the same way as other tournaments …

Trios Hype Cup program

The Fortnite Trios Hype Cup will predominantly take place on Monday, but the first event will take place on a Tuesday. Dates are subject to change if server problems prevent a tournament from taking place.

Prizes and how to participate

There are no cash prizes for the Hype Cup, but instead you can earn Hype to increase your Arena Rank. Win and earn enough and you’re in the Champions League in no time. Qualifying for the Cash Cups depends on you being in the Champions League.

Hype Cup prizes are based on the size of the field and where you finish

Instead of a simple ranking system, prizes are awarded depending on where you end up in relation to the size of the overall competition. If you finish in the top 1% of players, you will earn 2,250 Hype. By finishing in the top 50% you can earn 600, which is nothing to sniff at!

To enter the tournament, simply sign up for the playlist when it is active. You must have 2-factor authentication enabled and your account must be at least level 30 (this can be checked on the Career tab).
