FaZe Clan’s Tfue and Cloak Complain About the Struggle of Fortnite Pro Scrims With No Custom Matches

Professional Fortnite players and streamers Turner “Tfue” Tenney and Dennis “Cloak” Lepore made their feelings clear about the difficult of pro ‘scrims’ for top players.

Currently, private or ‘custom’ lobbies are not available in Fortnite matchmaking, meaning that in order for competitive players to scrim against one another, they must come up with their own methods.

The system currently used is to have all the players arrange to search for a game at the exact same time, and hope that they land in the same lobby as one another.

Typically around 20-30 duos will search for a game, and should all or the majority land in the same lobby (which they can identify from the server code), the scrim goes ahead.

However, occasionally some of the players who failed to make it into the lobby will demand a full ‘reset’ or restart, meaning all players leave and search again. But Tfue and Cloak are growing tired of this inefficient system.

“These people are so dumb dude. There will be like two stacked lobbies, and people that aren’t in lobbies will be like ‘oh, full reset’. Like shut the fuck up. So annoying. 

We should not ever restart. There shouldn’t even be restarts honestly. We just got two stacked lobbies and now we’re not even playing.” 

This system is the best possible method which these competitive players have currently, due to the absence of private, custom lobbies.

Epic Games has been working on developing private lobbies, which have so far only been used and tested for the Fortnite Pro-Am tournament at E3 and the first week of the Summer Skirmish series.

However, lag issues plagued the Summer Skirmish, so it is clear that the custom matchmaking system is still in need of work. With the competitive season underway, and $100 million in prize money pledged for tournaments, both online and off, the need for private lobbies is becoming more and more of a necessity.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.

Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.

To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
