Contest Overview: This is an online gaming contest wherein entrants will audition via video entry for a chance to participate in a Fortnite video game (“Fortnite”) tournament. Up to seventy-two (72) entrants from a pool of five-hundred (500) randomly selected entries, or from the pool of all eligible entries received if fewer than five-hundred (500) entries are received (see Section 6 a., below), will be selected to participate in the contest based on the degree to which the content of their entries meet the objective judging criteria described in Section 6 b., below. There will be four (4) rounds of Tournament Play (each a “Round”). The seventy-two (72) selected entrants (“Contestants”) will participate in the First Round in randomly-determined teams of three (3) (on February 3) and individually (on February 10) in live Fortnite elimination tournament play (“Tournament Play”) via a livestream of their game play from their perspective, to be broadcast on Organizer’s (as defined in Section 2, below) YouTube channel, as outlined in Section 6 of these Official Rules. After the First Round, twenty-four (24) Contestants will be selected to continue based on their cumulative total scores as calculated by Fortnite and verified by Organizer. These twenty-four (24) Contestants will then be “drafted” by Organizer into eight (8) teams and will engage in a Second Round via a livestream of their game play from their perspective. The four (4) teams in the Second Round with the highest total scores as calculated by Fortnite and verified by Organizer (the “Finalists”) will advance to the Third Round, and the two (2) teams in the Third Round with the highest total scores as calculated by Fortnite and verified by Organizer will advance to the Final (Fourth) Round. The one (1) team in the Final Round of Tournament Play with the highest total score as calculated by Fortnite and verified by Organizer will be declared the Grand Prize-winning team. Both the Third Round and the Final Round will take place in person in Los Angeles, California and will also be broadcast on Organizer’s YouTube channel. If chosen as a Finalist, you must be prepared to travel to Los Angeles, California to participate in in-person tournament game play on February 28, 2023. Travel will be provided at Organizer’s expense, subject to the terms, conditions and limitations listed in Section 7 below. The winning team members (each a Grand Prize winner) will be requested to participate in an additional filmed Fortnite tournament after the Contest is complete, as well as participate in the creation of one (1) Sponsor’s social media posts, as directed by Sponsor and/or Organizer (collectively, “Post-Contest Content”).
