FaZe Clan professional Fortnite players Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore have won the ninth running of the KEEMSTAR ‘Friday Fortnite’ celebrity tournament.

The pair beat out the TeamSolomid pro duo of Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani and Darryle ‘Hamlinz’ Hamlin to secure the $10,000 grand prize and win the competition for an unprecedented fourth time.

Having already beat Myth and Hamlinz in the Winners Bracket finals, Tfue and Cloak needed to win only one match in the Grand Final, whereas their opponents needed two.

The first match started off quickly in FaZe’s favor, as they managed to grab a 23-12 elimination lead after the first game. 

The 11 kill deficit proved to be too steep to overcome for TSM as a rather evenly played second game allowed the FaZe boys to maintain their lead and secure the championship.

The victory meant that Tfue and Cloak improved to 2-0 vs TSM in the Grand Finals and became the first players to win Friday Fortnite for a fourth time, while no other players have managed to win it more than once.

Week 4 winners Myth and Hamlinz had a chance to join them as multiple time champions, but were not up to the challenge.

Sponsored by popular YouTube Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem and UMG, the ninth running of the ‘Friday Fortnite’ tournament on July 6th featured some of the biggest names of the online gaming and content creation communities.

Members of FaZe Clan, Team SoloMid, The Sidemen, OpTic Gaming, 100 Thieves, and a host of other big YouTubers and Twitch streamers such as Ninja, FaZe Banks, Roman Atwood all competed for a share of the massive $20,000 prize pool.

The winner’s of last week’s competition, ‘Ninja’ and ‘Hysteria,’ were eliminated in the fifth round of the Losers Bracket, losing to ‘Nickmercs’ and ‘HighDistortion.’

Here are the final placements for Friday Fortnite Week 9:

SypherPK reveals his “wish list” for Fortnite Season 5

Star Fortnite content creator SypherPK has revealed in a recent interview the changes that he would like to see implemented in the battle royale’s upcoming Season 5, which is set to launch sometime in December 2020. 

Even though it feels like Season 4 launched yesterday, S5 is already a little more than a month away, if everything goes according to plan. It’s only a matter of time before players start getting leaks and official teasers about what’s going to be included in the next iteration.

Currently, there’s next to no information about what’s coming, whether it be for the season’s theme, new features, etc. In anticipation of all the new content that’s on its way, SypherPK has revealed his short, albeit important, wish-list for the upcoming season.

Epic Games
SypherPK said that he would like to see more game-changing mechanics, like fishing, in Season 5.

In a recent interview, Sypher said that, while he would love “more unique items”, one of the main things he’d like to see in Season 5 is “game-changing” features similar to what we’ve seen before.

“In past Fortnite seasons, we’ve had implementations that really change up the game,” the superstar streamer said. “Like when they first introduced Reboot Vans, when they first introduced Siphon, fishing, vehicles, picking up players.

“These are all very memorable changes that really shook up the game of Fortnite and made it better. We haven’t really seen big, significant changes like that in a while.”

In addition, he also said that he wants to see a “revamped” competitive/ranked system in the game: “Arena, right now, feels like a glorified Pub with Siphon. It doesn’t really feel like a true ranked mode. I would like to see a true ranked mode in Fortnite.”

Epic Games
SypherPK also said that he would like see some changes to the Reboot system in the Ranked/Competitive mode.

One currently-existing system he would like to see tweaked is respawning, which involves players collecting their eliminated teammates’ cards and bringing them back to life via one of the many Reboot Vans located on the map.

“I’d like to see some sort of mechanic where, when you get eliminated and thirsted, you have a second chance of coming back,” he elaborated. “I’d like to see a revamp of the Reboot system; core-changing mechanics to really shake-up Fortnite. It’s been a while since we’ve have some significant changes to really alter the pace of the game.”

While it’s unknown what Epic has planned for Season 5, the developers have more than proved themselves to be capable of thinking outside of the box for Fortnite. Only time will tell, however, if this next installment satisfies SypherPK and the Fortnite player-base.
