What is the Creator League Open Qualifier?

The Creator League Open Qualifier is a point-race tournament, with players having to play on the brand-new bespoke custom Fortnite map that has been made specifically with the Creator League in mind. The Creator Coliseum will task teams of three players with taking on each other in non-traditionally Fortnite gamemodes.

These modes are:

  • Hardpoint - King of the hill-style gameplay where teams need to be the first to reach 200 points, with each second holding the objective equalling one point.
  • Oddball - Where there is a ball in the middle of the map that teams need to hold onto. Each second holding the ball equates to one point [need info on score limit]
  • Capture the Flag - Each team has a flag inside their base. Retrieving the opposition's flag and returning it to your base scores you a point. Most points wins.

Players will get a point on the erena leaderboard for each round of matches that they win during the Creator League qualifier. Players will be encouraged to play as many rounds as possible during the qualifier.
