What to Expect from the JBL Quantum Cup
The JBL Quantum Cup spans across North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific and JBL, alongside its partner ESL, has brought some of the best Fortnite, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Apex Legends players in the world, including the newly signed 100 Thieves’ Apex Legends team, to compete for a prize pool of $180,000 – $35,000 for each regional Fortnite championship, $25,000 for the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive finals, and $50,000 for the Apex Legends finals.
Over the course of November, gamers had a chance to earn a spot in the JBL Quantum Cup Fortnite tournament, with regional qualifying rounds held in North America, Europe, and Asia. There were 200 duos that competed, and the top 25 advanced through to three rounds of qualifiers to fight for a chance to earn the right to play in the championship.
Throughout the event, participants will be able to interact and engage with other JBL Ambassadors and pro gamers, including SypherPK, Arkhram, Doigby, Keebabb, and Royalistiq, as well as taking advantage of JBL.com promotions and prize drops throughout the length of the stream.
