Fortnite Euro Cup Scoring System

The point scoring system will determine if you are worthy of a prize. It's an accumulative point scoring system meaning the longer you last in games, the more points you earn. You will also earn points for eliminating other players.

You earn 1 point for a 50th place finish. This score then increases by 1 point for every position higher you finish. The example of the top 10 places is as follows;

  • Victory Royale: 60 Points
  • 2nd: 53 Points
  • 3rd: 49 Points
  • 4th: 47 Points
  • 5th: 46 Points
