Fortnite’s All-Star Showdown was an invitation-only competition that featured the greatest players from Chapter 2 – Seasons 5 and 6.
Early this week, players from all around the world competed in talent challenges to determine the top editors, builders and aimers. While those competitions were entertaining, they couldn’t match the hype of the Solo Championship finale.
All-Star Showdown Format
Ninety players earned the right to compete through their success over the past two Fortnite Champion Series events. Ten additional players won their way into the All-Star Showdown through the Play-In tournament held last week. These 100 players queued into six matches and went head-to-head for their share of $3M.
In Europe, which is regarded as the strongest region in the world, there was spectacular action with Guild Esports player Tai “TaySon” Starčičand coming out on top with an incredible performance in the final match. After a shaky start, he followed that up with a Victory Royale, a second and a fifth place in his following three matches, before ending off the day with a six-elimination victory. He finished the day with 134 points, including fourteen eliminations and two victories. Winning the All-Star Showdown earned him a $150,000 share of the prize pool.
Apart from solo Veno’s 122 points, TaySon was miles ahead of the competition with the third place being almost 50 points behind! Veno had a considerably decent performance in each of the six matches and managed to secure an impressive $120,000.
1st: GUILD TaySon 7 – 134 points ($150K)
2nd: solo veno – 122 points ($120K)

PaMstou did the unthinkable and clutched his way to the NA East All-Star Showdown crown with thirteen total eliminations and one Victory Royale during the day. Unlike the European winner, PaMstou received only $75,000 as a reward for his troubles. In game six, FS casqer was on the verge of winning, but was left just short after a fifth-place finish.
Regardless, he had an outstanding performance, with ten eliminations and a Victory Royale in the third match. Lastly, the third-placefinsiher BBG Khanada was in the lead for the majority of the day, but his last three matches did not play out in his favor. He had to face a similar fate in the finals of the Blueprint Battle.

2nd: FS casqer – 97 points ($50K)
3rd: BBG Khanada1x – 94 points ($45K)

River “Riversan” Handley led the competition against some of NA West’s biggest stars. His performance consisted of a third-place finish in game one, followed by an incredible Victory Royale in game two. He accomplished just enough to leave Frapai, EpikWhale and Reet behind. Riversan won $135K after finishing with 110 points, a Victory Royale and fourteen eliminations.
In the last match, Frapai had a genuine opportunity to win. He had two victories under his belt and a top-ten finish would have secured the event for him. After finishing 58th in the previous game, he settled for second place on the standings and a $25K reward. With 98 points, top controller player XTRA Reet made it into third place. He had fifteen eliminations in six matches, which was the second-highest total in the entire region. On the other hand, fan favorite EpikWhale had to settle in fourth place with 88 points.
