Summary: Over 1M Fortnite Eliminations in the Alienware October Showdown!

Nov 5, 2018 · 2 min read

The “Alienware October Community Showdown” was an event that ran throughout October where streamer communities battled for the most eliminations and victory royales in order to earn a prize pool of 1,000,000 V-Bucks and Alienware PCs.

The hype is building up!


Weekend #1: Oct 13–14

In this “warm-up” phase, players will try to score a solo Victory Royale in order to win 1,000 V-Bucks. Every solo Victory Royale wins $10 to spend on V-Bucks (limited to one per user). A $2,500 Alienware computer + monitor will be raffled among all US winners.

Weekend #2 + Weekend #3: Oct 15–21 + Oct 22–28

Welcome to the “Community Battle”! This is where the real fun begins and where the prizes significantly ramp up.

Join an influencer community, earn points for each kill and Victory Royale, and make your community rise the leaderboard to win V-Bucks and Alienware PCs.

Influencers will battle for points (earned through each Victory Royale and Kills) while the influencer’s audience joins their community to add even more points to it.

Weekend #4: November 3–4

This is the final phase of the challenge, where similar to the “warm-up”, players try to score a solo Victory Royale to get 1,000 V-Bucks.
