Fortnite streamer KamoLRF has won the Week 2 Day 2 edition of the Summer Skirmish and will take home the $60,000 first prize.

Unlike Day 1 which was a runaway victory from the start, KamoLRF barely beat out second place Supremecy Vato by a score of 174 to 172. Rounding out the top 3 was Teekzie with 167 points.

For a recap of how Epic reached these point totals, the scoring system is listed below.

The player with the highest score after 10 Solo matches will be named the winner. Victory Royales and Eliminations in this competition will be scored to determine placement at the end of the event. The top 20 players at the end of the Week 2 Summer Skirmish will be awarded. Scoring is as follows:

Victory Royales: +5 Points
Eliminations: +1 Point
20 or More Eliminations (per game): +10 Points and $10,000
Most Eliminations Overall: Bonus $50,000

KamoLRF is a smaller streamer who was invited to the Summer Skirmish based on his performance in the Solo Showdown series, much like the winner of the July 20 tournament iDropz_Bodies. He was in the top 5 for most of the afternoon thanks to an unbelievable 35 kill performance in his third game. Back to back 21 kill games shortly after put KamoLRF in contention for first place and he was able to outlast a strong finish from Vato.

The Fortnite Summer Skirmish is an 8-week series of competitions where Epic Games will be awarding a total of $8 million in prize money. The competition features a variety of content creators, popular pro players, and top performers from previous in-game events.

The July 20 edition of the Summer Skirmish caused controversy when the winner iDropz_Bodies was not able to stream his matches, but KamoLRF was a presence on the main Fortnite channel on the way to his victory for everyone to see.

Valorant developers Riot Games have announced First Strike: Europe, the first-ever Valorant tournament wholly produced by Riot, set to kick off in November with some of the region’s best talent.

Since Valorant launched in June, it has become one of the most exciting games in esports, with players from all different titles migrating to Riot’s first-ever FPS. Some of the biggest competitors from the likes of Overwatch, CSGO and more are looking to make a name for themselves in the new shooter.

So, with First Strike: Europe around the corner, here’s everything you need to know to tune in to the tournament, and even get involved yourself.

Eligibility for Valorant First Strike: Europe

As the name suggests, the Open Qualifiers for the tournament are open to (almost) anybody. You don’t have to be a pro player to sign up, but you have to be over the age of 16 and you will need to reach the rank of Immortal 1 by the time you register.

Riot haven’t specified how people can apply and register for the tournament yet, but advise in their announcement that full rules for the event and how to apply will be available in the coming weeks — and we’ll be sure to update this page as soon as we know.

The tournament format is fairly simple to follow throughout, from the qualifiers right up to the main event. Here’s how the single-elimination tournament works:

  • Qualifiers and Play-Ins: Best of 1
  • Playoffs: Best of 3
  • Quarterfinals and semifinals: Best of 3
  • Finals: Best of 5

With best of 1s in qualifiers and play-ins we might see some upsets, but finishing the tournament on a best of 5 means we really will see the two best teams in Europe fight it out and showcase their talent across all maps, proving how much they’ve mastered the game so far.

With G2 Esports undoubtedly the strongest team in the region since competition started, the main question now is whether they can prove it in Valorant’s biggest tournament yet.
