Summary of Twitch Rivals: Road to TwitchCon Introducing Fortnite Zero Build – Part 1

Twitch Rivals welcomed three separate regions: Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), North America (NA), and Latin America (LATAM). In each region, 96 representatives from 32 teams clashed in six matches. Just like previous Fortnite events in Twitch Rivals, this Road to TwitchCon event, in addition to elimination points, awarded the winner of each round 18 points. The threes placed second to fifth earned 15 points, while the threes who placed sixth through tenth got only 12 points. Each subsequent placed trio earned 3 fewer points.

The total prize pool for each region was $50,000. The first place trio earned $7,500, the second place earned $6,000, the third place received $4,000, the fourth place received $3,000, and the fifth place received $2,250. The player with the most eliminations during the event will receive a $200 reward.

As with previous Fortnite events in Twitch Rivals, Road to TwitchCon has banned the use of tanks, armored fighting buses, tents, and Ballers from use. However, unlike Creators Series: The End with Fortnite Zero Build And the Fortnite Zero Build Showdown IIRoad to TwitchCon, due to the release of the new season, was groundbreaking and somewhat new. Chapter Three, Season Three, introduced fundamental changes to gameplay, such as new weapons (Heavy Sniper Rifle), random utilities (Reality Saplings), and new locations (Rave Cave). Regardless, the meta in Fortnite Zero Build is defined by the quiet early games in which players collect loot, search for better locations, and hard spin while trying to collect the most eliminations.

Europe, Middle East and Africa

The team led by Giorgio “POW3R” Calandrelli came to Road to TwitchCon very well prepared. They showed their hard work during the first match with their unparalleled control of the map. However, they gradually lost control of the map as the storm approached. Team Solary has replaced them with their swift, map-dominant moves and nearly endless takedowns.

Game two was slow at first, but once the storm rolled in, its pace picked up. Finally, the match came to a head as the POW3R team settled into a stunning building. Given the building’s strategic value, the trio jumped towards the building to retrieve it from the POW3R team. However, once they landed, Solary’s team quickly cleared the area, captured the building, and won another round.

When they landed on the map in Game Three, teams POW3RTV, Archie and Jacob4TV dominated the map. However, neither team was able to match Solary’s side in a close-range fight, which allowed them to claim their third straight win.

During the fourth game, the trios were directed towards collecting loot and finding better locations. So, while players aimed to stay low, most of the game was relatively quiet until the storm started. Then, as the storm approached and the three felt the pressure, chaos reigned. The sky was teeming with players using the Rift Tour to change their positions. However, team agustin51, previously stationed on higher ground, watched the chaos as they won.

In Game Five, Team POW3R had another strong start. Possessing the map with their excessive aggression, they drew a lot of attention. Soon, they were eliminated. The rest of the game was slow and reserved. Disciplined, the team led by Jacob “Qln” Romanowski prevailed and won the match.

After an intense game of five, six teams remained in contention to win their tickets to San Diego. Solary’s side were eliminated again early, in their losing streak since Match 4, and lost their chance to win the championship. This allowed the team led by Nicholas “Nikov” Frejavez, who was consistently placed in the top ten, to take the royal victory.

Since time and time again Nikov’s team has proven their consistency, winning the championship and securing their tickets to San Diego in October. While Team POW3R was right behind them with 126 points, Team Solary finished the race in third place with 120 points.

NA & LATAM

Like their friends abroad, the team led by Turner “Tfue” Tenny ran the show from the moment they set foot on the map. Besides collecting specific spoils, their strategy was to occupy higher ground and, with calculated aggression, eliminate the most enemies on the map. However, due to poor circulation, they gave the others enough breathing space to take them out. In a final open battle, Team Eyapixie won the Tour.

In the second game, the Tfue team, which collected 22 eliminations, again dominated the map. However, the team led by Marcus “Ranger” Pereira, who was low for most of the match, won the role as they defeated the last few live players.

During the third game, excellent positioning was the ultimate goal for all threes. The Tfue team once again wonderfully demonstrated their talent and skills. However, their semi-automatic targets and clever map moves proved to be lacking in the eyes of Team Ranger, who won another round.

As Team Ranger’s positioning and spins remained unparalleled during Game Four, they easily closed out Game Four with a straight win.

Game 5 featured Tfue eliminating players from both the left and the right. The other three assumed similar ferocity in the eye of the storm stationed around a bridge. In the final skirmish of the game, players finally had a chance to prove their mechanical prowess. Surrounded by the remnants of their enemies, the squatingdog’s team is assured of victory.

During the final match, the tension was at its peak since the players chose a very cautious and tactful playing style. However, the Tfue team saw this as an opportunity to completely bypass the map and eliminate every trace of opposing teams.

Unsurprisingly, Team Tfue closed in first and won their tickets to TwitchCon in San Diego with an indisputable 184 points. The team led by Aidan “Aidan” Conrad finished second with 123 points, and Ranger finished third with 116 points.

In Latin America, Federico “zEkO” Cristalino secured his ticket to TwitchCon in October with 127 points. The team led by Kim “Patriota” Negro was slightly behind them with 121 points.
