A Fortnite tournament gets everyone excited. This time around, the tournament will be hosted by World Champions of the game and that means Bugha gets his own cup to host. The Fortnite cup is in honor of Solo champion Bugha and Duo champions Aqua and Nyhrox.
The players teased the upcoming tournament on their Twitter handle and then proceeded to announce it officially. More details are available on the Epic Games website.
Fortnite – Bugha throwback cup
Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf played his first offline event with the Fortnite World Cup. The young player had the skills to make his mark and he did not fail. A day before July 28, 2019, Bugha was just an ordinary kid who loved Fortnite. No one could have predicted that he’d end up being a millionaire the next day.
The three champions will be hosting separate tournaments. The cup will have two rounds and players from all competitive regions can take part.
The top 100 players from the first round advance to the second round. Players from NA East; Bugha’s own region though are in for some hard luck. Well not really though, because only 99 players will make it through from the NA East region, and Bugha will be waiting for them. The tournament also is confirmed to be region-locked, that is to say, a player may participate from one region and not more.
The Bugha cup will take place on July 31. The winner will get a grand total of $100,000 as prize money.
- Victory Royale: 8 points

- Top 5: 2 points

Aqua and Nyhrox throwback cup
Aqua and Nyhrox were the first-ever Fortnite dual champions. They, too, are getting their throwback cups and the tournament is open to all regions. Most of the match stipulations are similar to Bugha’s.
Top 50 will qualify from other regions while Europe will be limited to 49 since Aqua and Nyhrox will participate too, just like Bugha. The cup begins on July 29 with a $100,000 up for grabs.
- Victory Royale: 6 points
- Top 2: 3 points
- Top 3: 2 points
- Top 4: 2 points
- Top 5: 2 points

Both the cups are a great way to honor the respective hosts’ cup victories. All the hosts have had a fair share of memories during the event and would be looking forward to making many more of them with this venture.
