The Fortnite Winter Royale European semifinals are about to get under way, with the Top 200 qualifying players from Europe preparing to go head to head for a spot in the grand finals.

There'll be a total of two heats in the semifinal stage, before the remaining players compete in the grand finals.

Here's an embed of the stream which will be begin broadcasting properly around 15 minutes after we publish this article:

Expect this evening's action to last around three hours. The grand finals will then commence at 5:00pm GMT tomorrow, Saturday 1st December.

The exact format and points system for the semifinals haven't been confirmed by Epic, so we can assume that they'll follow the same system as was used during the qualifying stage.

Here's the breakdown of how points were awarded last weekend:

  • Victory Royale: 3 Points
  • 2nd-3rd Place: 2 Points
  • 4th-10th Place: 1 Point
  • 7+ Eliminations: 3 Points
  • 5-6 Eliminations: 2 Points
  • 3-4 Eliminations: 1 Point
  • Big Bonus: After 7 Eliminations, +1 Point will be added to each elimination.

After this weekend there's a bit of a break before the North American qualifying players get together to finish the fight on their side of the pond.

Two semifinal heats will take place on Tuesday 11th December (starting 3:00pm EST), before the NA grand finals wrap the whole series up on Wednesday 12th December.
