Cody ‘Clix’ Conrod and Chicago Bears star Tarik Cohen have won the $500,000 Fortnite Streamer Bowl charity event, hosted by Epic Games and Twitch Rivals during the week of Super Bowl LIV.

With Epic Games and Twitch both having long-standing partnerships with the NFL, what better way to add to the Super Bowl LIV festivities than with a massive Fortnite tournament featuring the platform’s most popular streamers paired up with some of football’s biggest stars.

The Streamer Bowl took place on January 30, just a few days before the highly-anticipated big game, and handed out $500,000 in total prize money that will go to the participants’ charities of choice.

Below, you can find everything there is to know about this competition, including the competition’s final standings, list of teams, the format, and more.

Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Kyler Murray brought up second place with 46 points, with their 16 eliminations propping them up despite a more mixed 7.25 average placement. Aydan and Kurt Benkert rounded out the top three with 40 points.

Fortnite NFL Streamer Bowl format, rules, prizing

The 16 duos will play four matches overall with each team assigned a point-of-interest where they must land at the start of each game.

The scoring system will be based on both placements and eliminations; Victory Royales will be worth three points, finishing in the top-three worth two points, top-twelve a single point and each kill two points.

Here’s a full breakdown of the format, rules, and scoring, as provided by Twitch Rivals:

  • Streamer Bowl Overview: Hot Drop POIs Format
    • Teams will play four (4) games of Custom Matchmaking in the Arena Duos matchmaking playlist
    • Before the start of each game, teams will be given a single point-of-interest (POI) and the map coordinates where they will land
    • Players will drop to and be confined to this boundary until the storm is projected to cover the area
    • Once that phase of the storm begins closing, players will receive audio and visual cues to signal that they may leave the POI and play out the rest of the game as normal.
  • Primary POIs
    • Hot Drop #1: Frenzy Farm (E3:F4)
    • Hot Drop #2: Sweaty Sands (B3:C4)
    • Hot Drop #3: Dirty Docks (G4:H5)
    • Hot Drop #4: Lazy Lake (E5:F6)
  • Backup POIs
    • Craggy Cliffs (E1:F2)
  • Restrictions
    • Players/teams cannot use boats
    • Players/teams cannot loot or visit POIs directly outside of the boundaries until signaled that they are able to leave the boundary. This means:
      • Salty Springs outside of Hot Drop #2 is off limits until signaled
      • Retail Row outside of Hot Drop #3 is off limits until signaled
  • Penalties
    • If one or more players are caught outside of the coordinates before they are signaled to leave, the following penalties will be handed to their respective team(s):
      • Warning
      • Loss of 4 points from the game
      • Loss of all points and immediately leave the game
  • Scoring Structure

Mr Beast gives away $10k in most ridiculous Minecraft challenge yet

YouTube star Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson has given away another massive prize worth $10,000 to one random player in his latest Minecraft survival challenge.

Mr Beast is one of the biggest content creators on YouTube and is well known for his generosity, giving hundreds of thousands of dollars away to strangers in some of his past uploads.

During his latest video on his gaming channel, Mr Beast Gaming, the YouTuber revealed that he would be hosting a bizarre Minecraft challenge with a whopping $10,000 Subway gift card up for grabs.

Mr Beast has hosted plenty of unique challenge videos on his YouTube channel.

In one of his most ridiculous challenges yet, Mr Beast explained that this survival challenge would have plenty of interesting twists and turns before the winner was decided.

While it appeared to start off as a regular Minecraft ‘Hunger Games’ match, Mr Beast did not tell those participating that, instead of the border closing in on them from all sides, lava would begin to fill the map from down below.

This secret change seemed to catch plenty of players off-guard, after many of them immediately trekked down to the mines, in an attempt to gear up with diamond armor and equipment.

Mr Beast, who was spectating all of the action from above, would also spice things up by dropping rare pieces of equipment in front of a group to incentivize more fights.

In another twist, the YouTuber shared that the final player standing would not win anything, and that the full $10,000 Subway gift card would go to the person in 2nd place instead.

The final stage of the challenge was extremely close, with the last few players all falling into the lava at the exact same time. It was AltirixGaming though, the one who managed to claim the $10,000 prize.

Mr Beast has hosted other unique challenges on the sandbox title, such as his recent video where he gathered more players for an epic $50,000 Minecraft building competition.
