Backend System with LIVE features

Before jumping to conclusions when to expect new tournaments dates, the Fortnite community is also pleading for Ranked Play. With all gaming platforms, the most crucial element for a ranking system is a Live engine. With the addition of Live feeds, this should ease planning and automation of tournaments.

The Winter Royale and pop up cup stats update in real time for individual users, however no real time leaderboards are in place. With Live feeds, Epic mentions how knockout rounds  can be featured. There will be no delays, no wait to publish standings or players manually inserted into brackets. The fully automation feature is a much cleaner end user experience.

Conclusion

Epic has already announced new servers coming to the Middle-East , will the Middle-East, Oceania and far east ever be combined into a world Fortnite Tournament? This can be far fetched for Online services, however having LIVE backend data in realtime is a first true step to positve In-Game tournaments. Epic is still very much in it’s infancy stages and will continue to evolve to please and grow it’s fanbase.
