The Week 1 Fortnite Summer Skirmish has been cancelled by Epic due to a number of issues plaguing the inaugural tournament.

Player camping, boredom and laggy servers caused Epic to pull the plug before a winner was determined.

Week 1 was a format new to Fortnite esports and Epic provided custom matchmaking to accommodate the new rules.

Much like the Fortnite Pro-Am at E3, participants in the Summer Skirmish were playing against each other in the same lobby. Ten matches were scheduled and the first duo to win two matches would be crowned champion.

Unfortunately, the money involved saw most players build and hide in hopes of a high placing.

This led to viewers being less interested compared to the Friday Fortnite format, which has players advance based on the amount of kills they earn.

Since there will be a new format for each installment of the Summer Skirmish, they most likely would have let the tournament go on as planned while admitting the first to two wins is not ideal.

But lag was too much and the participants were constantly complaining about not being able to play correctly. We compiled some of the best lag reactions here.

Epic decided to cancel the tournament early, with no word on how a winner will be determined – or if it will be rescheduled.

As of now, the Summer Skirmish will return next week with a new ruleset, and Epic is looking into improved servers. The results of the four matches played are listed below, but no word yet on how the prize money will be distributed – if at all.

Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
