Open and Aura Trios Scrim Test for EU Only

By The Fortnite Team


As part of our efforts to explore ways to provide a more competitive environment for high-end players outside of Arena, we’d like to invite you to test out our newest competitive experience: Open and Aura Scrims. Starting on April 27, players in the EU server region will have the chance to participate in our Open Trios and Aura Trios Scrim test event. This will be a limited test event with no prizes or official results on the line. We currently anticipate that this test event will run for at least two weeks, although that period may be longer or shorter depending on how things go. 

Here’s a breakdown of the test event and what to expect:

  • Players will be divided into two pools to start: Open and Aura
    • Aura Scrims: Top 500 teams from Chapter 2 Season 5 FNCS Series Points
    • Open Scrims: Arena Division 3+
  • Three sessions per week
  • Top performing players from Open League will get promoted to Aura Scrims the following week
    • Inactive or poor performing players from Aura Scrims will be relegated to Open Scrims for the second week.

As a reminder, all players are required to comply with all Fortnite rules and regulations, including, but not limited to, the Fortnite End User License Agreement ( and Epic’s Terms of Service ( Failure to do so may result in your removal from the Open Trios and Aura Trios Scrim test event.

This is a limited test event, so jump in while you can and let us know your thoughts on the mode!
