Both of our new players are seasoned competitors within the Battle Royale genre, with JTruth previously performing on Spacestation Gaming, and coming 2nd in February’s Secret Skirmish Duos. MoNsTcR recently competed with Noble Esports, has taken part in seasonal Skirmishes, and regularly streams his Fornite exploits on Twitch.
Recently, both have been taking part in the Fortnite World Cup Warmup for both NAE and EU, honing their skills and grinding the necessary chemistry that can only come with time. The Fornite World Cup Qualifiers start this weekend and continue weekly until June 16 — both are poised to make an impact under their new organization.
“To join a respectable organization such as Evil Geniuses has always been a dream of mine. I feel like I’ve been underrated in every game I’ve competed in and can’t wait to prove everyone wrong. The grind has only just begun.”
— Chance “MoNsTcR” Duncan
“I’m super stoked and excited to be given the opportunity to represent such a renowned and amazing organization, and I’m looking forward to everything that’s in store. #EGReady”
— Jordan “JTruth” Clouse
One of the most consistent questions that we’re asked by our fans on social media is when we’re going to enter into new games, and thriving esports scenes like Fornite. After a long period of scouting and deliberation, we’re confident that we’ve made a positive choice for the long-term growth of Evil Geniuses, and the type of games we put our resources into.
Evil Geniuses Fortnite is:
Dropping into the Fortnite World Cup
The format of the Fortnite World Cup qualifiers are simple: the competition will alternate between duos and solos every weekend, with an Online Open Semi-Finals taking place on Saturday, with the Finals on Sunday.
To qualify for the Finals, players will have 10 matches to score as many points as possible, as determined by their overall placement in matches and the amount of eliminations they get. In a three-hour session, the top 3000 players will advance to the next day. The points they earn on Saturday reset, and Sunday is a brand new playing field.
Those top 3000 players come into Sunday with the same 3 hour session, and can play 10 matches to earn points. The top globally-ranked players will earn cash based on their placement from the $1 million weekly prize pool. The highest ranking players from each server region will advance to the World Cup Finals, which takes place on July 26 to 28. That tournament is the big one, with a $30 million prize pool up for grabs.
We’ll be looking forward to cheering JTruth and MoNsTcR on, and we encourage you guys to check our their streams and social media while they’re live!
