Want to take part? Here’s what you have to do!

This tournament will be password protected so we can ensure that all duos are eligible. To receive the password, participants will need to send a selfie of dad (or legal guardian) and child that will be entering (though you do not necessarily have to be a child to enter this tournament) via the guardians Facebook or Instagram to verify authenticity. Once we have received and verified this, you’ll be provided with the tournament password.

Due to the nature of this competition, it will be mandatory for all duos stream their matches from the semi-final onwards.

How will it work?

Participants will have the option to either play on a single console with their duo, and use split screen, or they can choose to play on individual devices. For split screen options in Fortnite, you’ll need to:

  • Navigate to the ‘Main Menu’.
  • Make sure the second controller is connected to your console and is turned on.
  • Once connected, the second player should be invited to select their account.
  • After signing in, the second player will now appear in the Fortnite lobby.

Alternatively participants can take part on individual devices.

Both players will have to IGGalaxy accounts and their Epic usernames added to their account.

How tournaments work

If you’re new, or this will be the first time you participate in IGGalaxy, then we encourage you to read our straightforward guide for how tournaments work. We want to remind you that all tournaments are automated, so failing to check in on time or reporting your results before the end of the round will result in a disqualification.

Specific information on how Elimination Dash tournaments work can be found in the ‘Rules’ section of the tournament page. Essentially, each entered duo will compete head to head against other duos for the most combined eliminations in one match of Fortnite Battle Royale.

We look forward to seeing you!

Places will be limited so spots will be offered on a first-come-first-serve basis. If you have any questions on the requirements or eligibility then please feel free to contact us on our social media accounts or by emailing us at support@iggalaxy.com.
