KEEMSTAR’s first weekly YouTube/Streamer Fortnite tournament was a massive success overall, but there was a slight bit of controversy as one team were forfeited after being caught essentially using a ringer.
The tournament was a battle for the most kills in a squad match of Fortnite, with popular community members teaming up in pairs.
One team, which initially featured popular YouTubers ‘Dolan Dark’ and ‘Colossal is Crazy’, surprisingly knocked out TSM’s Ali “Myth” Kabbani and 100Thieves owner Matt “Nadeshot” Haag, in the losers bracket.

The match was fairly convincing as Nadeshot was taken down early and Myth only managed to claw back six kills – by which point they were roundly beaten.
However, shortly after their elimination, Myth and Nadeshot discovered that they had in fact been advanced in the bracket, apparently with a 2-0 win.
Upon investigation, they discovered that one of the players, ‘Colossal is Crazy’ had in fact not been playing, but rather one of his friends was playing instead.
And Colossal later tweeted to confirm that it was not in fact him playing.
a good story though. Like we were in losers bracket so thought we couldn’t win anyway, so gave my friend @nopeifyaltalt the opportunity to play against some pro players for a game. He ended up beating them and he now has a permanent spot in the tournament. I got kicked tho 🙁

KEEMSTAR even called him to explain the situation live on stream.

It seems for future weeks, Grandayy, who has over 800,000 subscribers, will be stepping in in place of Colossal, who is presumably no longer taking part.
Nadeshot and Myth did go on to win the next round before being eliminated in 9-12th.
