The Fortnite Summer Skirmish has been life-changing for some young players, with a massive $8 million in prize money distributed over eight weeks of competition.

In week four’s North American tournament, 17 year old streamer Reverse2k won the ‘Hold the Throne’ competition, netting him $50,000, plus an extra $36,000 for his fifth place finish overall.

Hold the Throne was a new format for week four,  which rewarded players for getting the most eliminations in a game and holding on to that top spot, for a bonus $50,000.

Reverse2k managed to keep that number one spot, and received a heartwarming phone call from his father after the event, which he played over loud speaker for his stream to hear.

While many young gamers still struggle to convince their parents that spending more time gaming is a good thing, earning $86,000 for a few hours work certainly makes for a good argument.

His dad exclaims: “Eighty six fucking thousand dollars? You’re going to need a fucking tax guy!”

Because he won the bonus ‘Hold the Throne’ prize and a 5th place, Reverse2k actually took home more than the 1st place finisher, “NotVivid”. His supportive dad was quickly given the name ‘Papa2k’.

In total this season, Reverse2k is estimated to have earned just short of $100,000 in the Summer Skirmish – and it is only week four.

Epic is inviting players who are streamers, YouTubers and some of the best performers from the Solo Showdown LTM, so it is possible for anyone to get a chance at the massive prize money, but you will need to prove yourself.

With the $100 million pledged by Epic Games for Fortnite prize pools in the 2018-19 competitive season, young players like Reverse2k could be very wealthy indeed if they can keep up these performances.

Among Us has become the game of choice for many top creators, with a party-game atmosphere and a great way to find out who your real friends are and test your own poker face.

In-Vent-Ational recap

Four separate lobbies filled to the brim with popular personalities battled it out during the event. Eventually, the best of the best moved on to the final showdown. This was where the most elite Among Us players showed their skills to the world. From extraordinary memory to map knowledge and of course, the ability to deceive everyone else, it all came in handy.

The likes of Ludwig, Classify, and Yassuo all made it through to the final round of action in the FaZe event. However, only one player could come away with the crown.

After a few maps of intense murder-sprees and subsequent investigations, it was up and coming Twitch streamer ‘Yetiapocalypse’ that closed out the victory. They soared to the top of the pack with a six-point lead over second place, well ahead of some of the bigger internet celebs in the lobby. The final placements can be found below.
