Fortnite $250,000 Summer Skirmish Week 1 Results After Tournament is Cut Short

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.

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.
