Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has finally revealed the official announcement video for his Fortnite Creative World Cup trials, with the opportunity of qualifying for a place in a $3 million tournament up for grabs.
The popular Twitch streamer, who has over 14 million followers on the platform at the time of writing, has revealed that he will be hosting the competition – sponsored by Epic Games – which will give players the opportunity to submit their best trickshots played on a brand new map that has been made specifically for the trials.
This challenge will be part of the Fortnite World Cup Creative Competitions and submissions will be judged on different types of criteria – number of targets hit, distance of targets hit, and creativity of the trickshot.
So, if you think you have what it takes, let’s take a look at how you can get involved…
Submissions can be put forward for Ninja’s Creative Trials by uploading a public video to YouTube, Twitter, or Instagram along with the official hashtag for the competition – #NinjaCreativeTrials.
For those that have been wondering just what the new unique map looks like, as all trickshots must take place there in order to be submitted, Ninja does a quick walkthrough in the announcement video. This should give budding players a good idea of what to expect!
If you would like to give this your best shot, you’re going to have to abide by a few rules when you come to filling out the submission form. These can be found below:

What to expect from Ninja’s Creative Trials
Players will have to do their best to trickshot their way out of trouble in the most impressive way possible in order to be named a winner, but don’t worry, you don’t have to kill all four bosses on the map in one clip. It’s set up to give you the option of which of the four you want to target!
Here’s the official description of what the trial will entail:
“An ancient power has released an army upon the kingdom. Use your best trickshotting skills to to defeat the 4 bosses and banish this evil power from the land!”
“Players will start inside the Ninja Training Dojo where they will be introduced to the key mechanics of the map. The Training Dojo provides a step by step tutorial on how to use different items to hit trickshots and introduces players to the “Weak Points” system on the elemental bosses. Once the player has completed their training, they will have the opportunity to pick their trickshotting load out before heading out into the world to fight the 4 elemental bosses.”
If you think you have got what it takes to win Ninja’s contest and qualify for the Creative World Cup Finals, go ahead and get involved!
