Fortnite’s newest tournament series, Friday Night Bragging Rights, will allow players to compete for a chance to gain exposure via Twitter.
Epic Games has revolutionized competitive gaming by allowing anyone and everyone to compete in Fortnite tournaments regardless of their org affiliation or online presence, but the game’s newest tournament series allows players to compete every Friday to be paid in exposure. Fortnite normally holds several tournaments a week with a slew of miscellaneous names reaching the top spots, and now these anonymous usernames have a unique opportunity to grow their followings.
Fortnite’s competitive scene is like no other as it allows any player from any background to compete in almost every tournament. While other major titles such as CS:GO, Overwatch, and League of Legends have their own tournaments, they are usually limited to gaming organizations and teams. Some special tournaments will take place that requires large internet followings to receive an invitation to compete. However, as long as a player has enough skill, Fortnite allows anyone to have a chance to compete for large cash prizes.

Some players have amassed a large income from competing in Fortnite tournaments, and others have launched streamer careers due to their performance. One notable example is the Fortnite World Cup winner Bugha. Now, Fortnite has announced a new tournament series that will make it easier for the best players to grow their audience solely by playing harder than anyone else. This new series is called Friday Night Bragging Rights, and according to Epic Games, it will take place every Friday starting on January 8th. Winners of the trio tournament will receive a special shout out from the Fortnite Competitive Twitter each week.

The announcement for the Friday Night Bragging Rights series didn’t mention any other form of prize for winners, but exposure may be what competitors need. With the sheer size of Fortnite’s competitive player base, it is only getting harder for players to break away from the pack and start a legitimate career playing Fortnite. Players may earn a couple hundred dollars every once in a while from competing, but a shout out from the world’s most popular battle royale may prove to be more profitable in the long run.
However, it may not be as exciting a prize as it first appears, seeing as winners will be getting a shout out from the Fortnite Competitive Twitter and not the official Fortnite Twitter. Fortnite’s Competitive has a whopping 1.2 million followers which is a ton, but the official Fortnite Twitter has 12.2 making it a much more desirable place to be featured. Regardless, the Friday Night Bragging Rights tourney could expose Fortnite players to 1.2 million new eyes which might help in starting a streaming career.
