The Fortnite FNCS Invitational groups the top ranking players across all regions in a Solo competition, with victors receiving a portion of the $2 million prize pool. The ‘solo’ part is pretty important, and it’s a lesson Japanese player Sekosama has learned: after winning the Asia component of the Invitational, the player has had his $15,000 prize money revoked for ‘teaming’ during the match. 

‘Teaming’ means Sekosama quietly collaborated with another player throughout matches in order to gain the upper hand. According to Dexerto, Sekosama’s illicit teammate left loot in hidden spots throughout the map in order for Sekosama to find them. Meanwhile, the winner is reported to have communicated with his benefactor during matches in the final.
