Epic Games were unable to fix some issues that occurred during last weekend’s Fortnite trios tournament in good time. To make amends, the company has decided to host another trios tournament on July 21 in which the finals and semi-finals will both hold on the same day.
The issue involved defeated players not dropping anything instead of the 50 pieces of each material that they were supposed to. In the process of fixing this problem, Epic Games came across different issues that affected how teams were being scored, forcing them to abandon that fix.
Epic Games employee iFlak had this to say on Reddit, “While addressing the material drop issue in the Trios Cash Cup, we ran into a different issue. We’ve decided to run the Trios Cash Cup with default harvesting rate and no material drop for the rest of the weekend.” iFlak also added, “Arena Trios would also remain enabled until the end of the season.”
The company found itself left with two options, either cancelling this week’s tournament or continuing as is with the issues and running another trios tournament with proper fixes implemented next week. They chose the latter. Next week, the developers will be testing finals and semi-finals on the same day and a much smaller player pool in the finals which could usher in custom style rounds in future tournaments.
