YouTuber Alastair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken hosted a Fortnite trivia event that gave players an opportunity to come away with 10,000 V-Bucks as a reward.

While Ali-A isn’t known for being among the best Fortnite players in the world, he still commands a large audience that is always looking to see what he comes up with next.

In his video from February 1, the YouTuber hosted a trivia contest made in the Creative mode where he asked a lobby of players a series of questions that he deemed to be “impossible.”

As an incentive for players to give it their all, Ali-A offered up a reward of 10,000 V-Bucks, which would be good for buying anything from new skins and cosmetics, or even holding onto for the upcoming Battle Pass in Season 2.

Of course, he couldn’t make it easy for players, so he had to come up with a series of questions that would narrow down the lobby to just one victor. Every time a player answered incorrectly, they would be eliminated by Ali-A and forced to watch as somebody else went on to claim the prize.

Questions included things as simple as when Fortnite’s battle royale mode launched but became as complex as how many builds could you put down if you had maxed out materials in all three categories.

Eventually, he was able to whittle it down to just two remaining players. For his final question, he asked the two if he was closer to six or seven billion views when you combine his two YouTube channels together.

The contestants were split with their choices, so a winner was going to be declared. The answer ended up being six billion and Ali-A named player ImDaddio- the victor.

With such a high turnout and interest in this trivia event, it’s possible the YouTuber will decide to run it again in the near future.

Even star Fortnite streamer SypherPK got into the comment section and suggested including a question about the recent Fortnite Fashion Show World Cup, which, of course, he and Ali-A won.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.

With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.

As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
