The inaugural 'Friday Fortnite' tournament organized by YouTuber KEEMSTAR was a massive success, as top streamers pulled in millions of viewers across their channels.

As KEEMSTAR has made clear, this tournament isn't about finding who is the 'best player' necessarily, but is a tournament for 'clout', with just big name streamers and YouTubers invited to play.

And those big names certainly did their part in attracting the viewers, with some of the most popular Fortnite streamers such as TSM's Ali "Myth" Kabbani and NICKMERCS involved.

There were also some players not known for Fortnite specifically, but big names nonetheless, such as vlogger Logan Paul or FIFA YouTubers NepentheZ and Nick28t.

Of course the tournament did not have a single set stream, instead most participants streamed their matches on their personal streams.

This of course made compiling viewing figures difficult, and more so because of the different platforms, with some streaming on Twitch and others on YouTube.

However, KEEMSTAR himself reached out to many of the players involved, and has received the total unique viewers which each pulled, with the total amounting to over 5 million.

Of course the number would be slightly higher still if the figures for all participants were compiled.

The Friday Fortnite tournament is set to be a weekly thing each Friday, and KEEMSTAR has confirmed that it will feature the same kind of invitees.

One notable omission from the first week was of course the most popular Fortnite streamer, Tyler "Ninja" Blevins, who was not available.

It is likely that should he be available next time, and given the momentum of the first tournament, the viewership would continue to increase.
