It’s that time of the week again – 64 top YouTubers, streamers and influencers are set to compete in the sixth running of the Friday Fortnite tournament hosted by KEEMSTAR and UMG Gaming.

The Friday Fortnite started from humble beginnings with a $5,000 prize pool, but after five successful weeks it now sits at a whopping $20,000 split between the top three teams.

Just as in previous weeks, there are lots of famous faces taking part in this week’s tournament.

Familiar names such as Ninja, FaZe Clan players Tfue and Cloak and Dr DisRespect are taking part. Ninja is coming in hot off his win at the Fortnite Pro-Am and will be partnering up with TSM player Daequan to form a formidable duo – they face previous winners TypicalGamer and SoaR Thief in round one.

New OpTic Gaming pro player ‘Baldy’ is also taking part, teaming up with OpTic content creator Jack “CouRage” Dunlop, and they will be facing off against NICKMERCS and Luminosity’s SypherPK in round one.

You can view the full bracket at the link below.  The tournament is set to start on June 15th at 4pm EST (1pm PST, 9pm BST, 7am AEDT).

The payouts for Week Five of Friday Fortnite will be the following:

  • 1st Place – $10,000
  • 2nd Place – $7,000
  • 3rd place – $3,000

Because there are no custom games or lobbies in Fortnite yet, the tournament is played on public servers using the following rules:

Rules:

2v2 Matches

Streaming Rules:

UPDATED: You must have your delay set to 120 seconds on your OBS settings when you are streaming, failing to do so will result in a forfeit and or a replay of the match that was played.

Tournament Rules:

Winner’s Bracket – The hosting team will host a SQUAD game session. Then they will invite his teammate, and their opponents to the game session and then begin their match.

Loser’s Bracket – The hosting team will host a SQUAD BLITZ game session. Then they will invite his teammate, and their opponents to the game session and then begin their match.

How To Win:

For this tournament you will play two games. Each game you must keep track of your kills for each game played. The combined amount of kills for each game will determine which team will win the match. If out of the two games played the kills are tied a third map will be played to determine a winner for the match.

Sabotage:

You will party up as a SQUAD or DUOS with your opponent based on the type of match (1v1, 2v2). Any player inside of that queued session MAY NOT destroy any bases made by their opponent, make them fall, or any other actions that may help lead to that person’s death.

$375,000 Pokemon Trading Card Game box opening ends in absolute tragedy

A Pokemon Trading Card Game livestream ended in disaster after it was quickly discovered that the booster packs were fake. The YouTube channel spent over $375k on the 1st Edition base set box, only for it to be resealed. 

Despite making its debut in 1999, the Pokemon TCG has exploded in popularity over the past two years. The hobby hit an all-time high in October when influencer Logan Paul opened a base set booster box he paid $216k for while livestreaming.

However, things didn’t work out as well for another YouTube channel who paid $375k for the same item. The livestream unboxing of the rare collectible quickly turned tragic when it was discovered that the TCG item was actually fake.

Rare Pokemon TCG box opening ends in complete disaster

The event was hosted by YouTube channel ‘Dumb Money Live’ and included popular Pokemon content creators such as Lee ‘Leonhart’ Seinfeld. The rare 1st Edition base set booster box was bought for a record-breaking $375 through Logan Paul’s collectible trader ‘Collectables Guru.’

“The owner of the box supposedly bought three boxes when he was a child. They sat in the gun safe the entire time,” the Pokemon dealer explained. However, they quickly realized something was amiss after breaking the seal. Several booster packs were different colors, and some weren’t even 1st Edition.

“Oh no. That is a major f**king deal!” Guru exclaimed. The personality opening the box then revealed the problem: “It’s not even base set cards, these are Jungles! Wow. This is a resealed box. It’s random!”

(Topic starts at 35:41)

Upset, Collectable Guru called up the seller and explained that the box was resealed. “We opened the box literally live and they’re resealed packs. There is like base set 2 mixed in, half of them are 1st Edition. But they are all resealed, this is absolutely unacceptable. How is this going to be taken care of immediately?”

Stunned by the whole thing, Leonhart stood by and said, “Oh my gosh, I was not expecting that.” Guru came back and updated the group and explained that the seller had two other boxes that they were going to open first before bringing them back to the YouTubers.

The YouTubers were floored after the rare Pokemon box was fake.

To add salt to the wound, the box opening was done on stream for charity. Dumb Money Live gave an update and addressed the situation a day later stating: “I don’t know a single person in my network that hasn’t been defrauded as an investor. You have to give sellers a benefit to make this right.”

At the time of writing, the situation has not been entirely rectified. The channel will open a booster pack on October 30 live to verify that the second box is actually real. However, it appears that if this one is fake as well, the seller claims they will refund the content creators their $375k.
