As long as attendees are over the age of 16, have a valid driver’s license, and a PAX badge, people can participate for their shot at the $1.5 Million purse.
If you want to participate in the Summer Skirmish event, registration will open each day at 8:00 PST and the registration booth will be located at the PAX Lot 73 on 8th and Pine. The first three days will start off with three qualifier rounds followed up by final qualifiers. The final tournament will be held on Monday, September 3 and will be livestreamed on Fortnite’s official Twitch page.
The final event on September 3 will be a 3-stage solo event. At each stage, players can earn points based off of match wins, placement, and kills. Here is how the scoring system works for the event:
