Fortnite Custom Lobby Rules

Players will compete in five matches for the most kills and placement points in a custom lobby. The custom code will appear on the tournament page you’re registered for, in the clan tag section five minutes before the start time.

Custom Lobby Clan Tag: A clan tag/custom code will appear before the start of the tournament. You must be signed into your Drop-In Gaming account in order to view the code on the tournament page.

Joining Custom Lobby: Confirm you have “NA West” as the matchmaking region. You will find this on the game tab (second tab with a gear icon) in your Fortnite settings.

Teams will go to the screen where you normally select the game mode you want to play (Public, Arena or LTM’s). You will select “Custom Options” on the bottom right of the screen. Input the custom code that can be found on the page of the tournament you registered for on the Drop-In Gaming website. Once you have input the custom code, click accept. Then select the BR game for the mode you registered for (solo) and click accept again. At this point, players should be at the main lobby screen. Ready up or click “Play”. If this is all done correctly, you will see a queue of “X” amount of players ready to go. If you have issues getting in the queue, confirm you have the code in correctly. Being unable to queue at that point will result in a score of zero. Players who didn’t get into the queue, email

1 point per kill. For every 5 kills, an extra 1 point is given out.
(Example: 5 kills would be 6 points. 10 kills would be 12 points).

Results: Teams with the best total score at the end of the time frame will be the winner and announced on the tournament page. If there is a tie, teams will be notified. The tiebreaker will go to the player with the most kills in one game. If there is a tie after that, the player with the best average placement will be the winner.

After each match, there will be a ten minute break prior to the next match starting. Use this time to update scores and queue in for the next match. No late submissions will be taken into account for scoring.

Social: Players should post at least once on social media before the tournament, tagging Drop-In Gaming on any platform. View any of our socials on our Linktree (

Streaming: All console team; one player is required to stream. PC/PC controller team; one player is required to stream. Confirm “Streaming” when creating your team on the given competition. Please note; anyone who has any suspicion towards them of cheating will be required to stream. It is 100% up to our admins to make a judgement call given the evidence of a cheater. If caught cheating the team will be disqualified and banned from Drop-In Gaming.

Disconnections: Players who disconnect during the match will only be able to count their points prior to their disconnection. The easiest way to verify your score would be by checking your stream vod or replays on Fortnite. Screenshot your score and submit. In order to receive any points, you must submit proof of your score on the Drop-In Gaming website. Our admins will be verifying all scores.
