Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 is here, and that means a new season of competitive play. With Fortnite being a significant player in the competitive eSports world, it’s no wonder why millions are flocking to the game to win big and be the next eSports star. The coming of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3 comes with a competitive update that includes everything from official tournament schedules and broadcasts to Epic’s enforcement policies.
Official Fortnite Broadcasts
Unfortunately, the world is a very different place than it was last year. Competitive in-person tournaments are not something we’re going to see for the foreseeable future. However, official Fortnite broadcasts will take place remotely. These broadcasts will show the rising stars and the best and the brightest in the Fortnite competitive scene. This includes some drops available to Twitch channels streaming FNCS gameplay.
Epic’s Enforcement Policies
New (and even returning players) know that every competitive scene comes with a few guidelines. With everything being done remotely, it’s understandable that Epic has some enforcement policies in place. One of Epic’s enforcement policies is its eligibility policy. Rule-breaking of any form will result in a competitive ban of 30-days or more. The player will also not be eligible for the next competitive season. Epic will even be cracking down on players who are playing Fortnite across multiple accounts. They will also be watching out for “smurfing.” Smurfing is where players try to play an alternative account that isn’t as progressed rank-wise as their main account. Epic will also enforce gamily-friendly display names to ensure anyone watching under the age of 18 aren’t exposed to unsafe display names.
There are plenty of fun updates to look forward to during Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3’s competitive scene. Hopefully, Epic has as much success as it did at the end of Season 2.
