When is the Fortnite Tournament of Power start time?

The Fortnite Tournament of Power takes place on August 18, 2022. As such, you've only got a few days to become familiar with all the changes in the Fortnite Dragon Ball crossover before diving into the tournament.

Within each region where the Fortnite Tournament of Power is live, you'll have a three-hour window to participate in ten competitive matches. Epic Games confirms that regions can have different periods, and as such recommends looking at the Compete tab on Fortnite to see when it kicks off in your region. From what we can see in-game though, those times aren't up yet.

Performing well in the Fortnite Tournament of Power is sure to net you some impressive rewards. If you manage to finish in the top 50% of the leaderboard, you'll get an Angry Vegeta Emoticon. If you get eight points on the main leaderboard, you also get Goku's Kanji as a banner icon.

On top of that, there will be a separate Kamehameha eliminations leaderboard, specifically for kills you get using that power. A more specific objective requires you to get three points from eliminations using Kamehameha, which earns you a Beerus Eating Spray.

Those are the only rewards available for the Tournament of Power in Fortnite, though they'll likely still appeal to dedicated Dragon Ball fans. There may not be anything exlcusive for those finishing in the upper echelons of the leaderboard, but it means a lot of players will still be able to get a prize.

How do I enter the Fortnite Tournament of Power?

Unfortunately, not all Fortnite players will be able to enter the Tournament of Power. There are a few entry requirements you'll need to meet, primarily to ensure the smooth running of the event. Firstly, you'll need to have two-factor authentication enabled for your Epic Games account. This is no doubt in place to ensure nobody tries to hack into your profile during the tournament.

On top of that, you'll need to have an account level of at least 50. Note that this is different to your tier on the battle pass, and encompasses all of your Fortnite progression over the years. To find out what it is, head to the Career tab and look at the top-right corner.

Aside from that, there aren't any specific requirements you need to fulfil. Therefore, you can simply find the time where the Tournament of Power is active in your region and dive into your ten designated matches of Duos. Yes, it is a Duos-only tournament, so make sure you've got a buddy to drop in with.
