In a remarkable run, a 13 year old professional Fortnite player has advanced to the Grand Finals of KEEMSTAR and UMG’s Friday Fortnite tournament.

The young pro player, ‘Mongraal’, who first garnered when esports organization Team Secret recruited him to their Fortnite roster, has shocked the entire tournament to dominate his way to the finals.

Orginally, he was set to play with YouTuber ComedyShortsGamer, also known as Deji, but due to Deji having to pull out at the last minute, Mongraal partnered up with his Team Secret teammate ‘Domentos’.

And the pair did not disappoint, going on an incredible run through some of the tournaments very best participants.

After taking down Chance and fruitcake in round 1, they then knocked OpTic Gaming’s Jack “CouRage” Dunlop and pro OpTic player Baldy to the losers bracket.

They then took on and defeated pro players “72hrs” of Team Liquid and compLexity’s Hogman, before defeating perhaps their most high profile opponents in Dr DisRespect and Krafty.

Beating Avxry and OPscT in the Winners Finals, they have found themselves currently waiting in the Grand Final, where they will face the winner of Avxry/OPscT vs the losers bracket winners.

Just by making the Grand Final and securing second place at minimum, the pair are guaranteed at least $7,000 in prize money.

Fortnite is about to launch its first-ever Box Fight Tournament, a creative 1v1 competition in an arena designed by winners of last month’s Princess Castle Creative Contest. If you’re interested in competing, here’s everything you need to know.

Fortnite is a competitive game at heart, but it’s also a wonderful platform for creative players. It’s the reason why the creative mode is so popular. Players can build their own islands and share them with others.

Last month, Fortnite celebrated its third birthday by hosting the Princess Castle Creative Contest. Essentially, players had to create and submit their own version of a Box Fight map.

For those who don’t know, Box Fighting is when two players are fighting within one tile of each other and inside a box. It’s unique in the sense that it combines competitive and creative skills.

Two players named HassanFTN and Shride won the contest. Their arena, named “Island of Dreams” (9005-6737-3429), was chosen to be showcased in the first official Box Fight Tournament.

The map used in the Box Fight Tournament was created by two winners of the Princess Castle Creative Contest.

How to compete in the Box Fight Tournament

To compete in the Box Fight Tournament, all you need to do is look for the Box Fight Tournament LTM on the main menu once it’s available.

However, there is an eligibility requirement. Players will need to have reached Open League (Division II) in Arena before the tournament begins. Don’t stress if you haven’t though. It’s very easy to do and will only take a couple of games.

The format is pretty straightforward. Players will duke it out in a one on one Box Fight against other players in their region.

It will follow a traditional tournament structure with multiple rounds. The more rounds you win, the higher you will climb. The player with the most wins at the end of the tournament is the winner.

Box Fighting requires calculated attacks and solid defense.

When does the Box Fight Tournament start?

Fortnite players don’t need to wait long. The Box Fight Tournament begins on Wednesday, October 28, which means it’s only one sleep away.

However, that also means if you haven’t ranked up enough in Arena to be eligible, you’ll need to hop in and get started before it’s too late.

Box Fighting is an important skill in Fortnite. In many ways, it’s what separates the wolves from the sheep.

If you’ve mastered it, the tournament is a good way to test your skills. Don’t be disheartened if you haven’t though. Taking part in the tournament is a good way to improve.
