The Crossover: How to Join NBA
The Fortnite X NBA Team Battles will let players represent their favorite teams. Sign up on the Fortnite X NBA Team Battles website to be one of the 15,000 players to be a "Member" or one of the 550,000 players to be a "Fan" of your selected team. Both positions get their chance to earn in-game rewards and V-Bucks! The higher your team gets, the better rewards the members can receive.
"Members" and "Fans" must work together to complete Challenge Tasks, score points and unlock in-game rewards. Epic Games reported that Top Teams can get:
- Members on #1 Ranked Team: 500 V-Bucks + Fortnite "NBA Championship Trophy" in-game cosmetic Back Bling
- Fans on #1 Ranked NBA Team: Fortnite "NBA Championship Trophy" in-game cosmetic Back Bling
- Members on #2 Ranked NBA Team: 300 V-Bucks
- Members on #3 Ranked NBA Team: 100 V-Bucks
- Complete 3 Challenge Tasks (Members + Fans): Fortnite "Spin" in-game cosmetic Spray
- Complete 5 Challenge Tasks (Members + Fans): Fortnite in-game Banner
It should be noted that "Members" and "Fans" are limited slot positions. If you run out of spots, you lose your chance to join the event or you should try your luck on a different team.
Also, "Fortnite" is warning players against inactivity. "Members" who fail to participate in at least one Challenge Task every 24 hours will automatically be removed from the team and be disqualified from further participation in the event. The first "Fan" to register will replace the disqualified member.
Pro Tip to Dominate The Crossover
Bring power in numbers! Invite your friends to play with you on the same team to complete Challenge Tasks faster. During the battle royale scoreboards, it is better to work with players who can support your gameplay instead of working alone.
Also, try to complete more than one Challenge Task a day. There are no clues yet what kind of challenges would be. However, players should expect objective-based missions included.
Sign up for a "Member" or "Fan" position on your favorite team before it's too late. This might be your only chance to get the team jersey and other collectible in-game rewards!
