Fortnite is a Battle Royale game that can be played casually and with your friends to have a good time. But like most popular Multiplayer games, it can get pretty competitive. You may wonder how players are ranked in Competitive tournaments, that’s where PR (Power Ranking) in Fortnite comes into the picture. The PR system allows many people to track their performances in the tournaments they play in. Although it seems simple, there is a layer of complexity to it. In today’s article, I will be explaining what PR is in Fortnite.
What is PR in Fortnite? (Meaning Explained)
PR is an acronym for Power Ranking. It is a rating system that ranks players based on their skill level. Initially, Fortnite didn’t have Power Ranking (PR) in it. Other sports like Basketball & Tennis use this system to rate the Players in their respective Sports and the same goes for Fortnite. The more PR a player has, the more Skillful they are. In Fortnite, PR is very important. Probably even more important than earnings as this is a measure that many Esports Orgs or Gaming Companies look at while searching for Pro players. If you are a player planning to go Pro, then getting a high PR is very important.
How do I get PR?
You can get it by getting placed in certain Tournaments in Fortnite. The better your placement is, the more PR you will earn. You can only earn it from Tournaments that have earnings as their top cash prize. So LTM’s (Limited Time Events) will not fetch you any PR. The fastest way to get more PR is to play every Tournament possible. Sign up for the next Tournament as quickly as possible. As you play more Tournaments, you will get more PR in Fortnite regardless of your placement. Consistency is key here and you don’t want to slack off in this department.
With that in mind, enrolling yourself for the PlayVS will help you get your PR faster. Now there is one thing to keep in mind, the PR you get after playing tournaments will start to Decay over time. It starts to decay after 4 Months and can be completely gone by 18 Months. If you are constantly playing then this will not affect but it’s something to keep a track of.
One last thing to keep note of is the different Tournaments will give you different amounts of PR. You can check them through the Fortnite Tracker. Here you will be able to keep a track of your PR and stat progress, keep a track of your PR Decay, see how much a Tournament is rewarding, and more.
