Atlantis Mitro and Atlantis Magin have taken home the $60,000 first prize by winning Week Three Day Two of the Fortnite Summer Skirmish tournament.

They were the first team to 13 points, thanks to Victory Royales in Matches 8 and 9. They were followed by Fwexy and Pate1k of Main with 12 points and Greyfox and Mouz Moeps finished third with 10.

In order to best understand the recap of this tournament, make sure to brush up on the scoring format:

The first Duos team to reach 13 points is the winner. Victory Royales and Eliminations in this competition will be scored to determine placement at the end of the event. The top 20 teams at the end of the Summer Skirmish will be awarded.

Victory Royale: +4 Points
5 or more Eliminations: +2 Points
Most Eliminations (per match): $6500

Much like yesterday, the matches were close and teams struggled to score points and pull away from the pack to get 13 points quickly. Those who got close to 13 would be hunted first in an attempt to extend the tournament.

After six matches, Fwexy and Pate1k were on top with 10 points, but the field narrowed as points were hard to come by. Mitro and Magin hung around the top 5 with 6 points, though they did not score for a few matches. Ref7ection and H3X were the only team in the top 5 to score in match six, gaining two points to earn a three way tie for second place at 8 points.

Nyx and Swayzen won match six and the four points were enough to launch them from the bottom of the standings to the top 10.

Fwexy and Pate1k were frozen at 10 points for matches seven and eight, allowing Mitro and Magin to tie them for first after winning match 8.

The ninth match was all they would need, grabbing another Victory Royale for back to back wins to hit 14 points.

Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
