Professional Fortnite Battle Royale player Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore has criticized developers Epic Games over their scheduling of the World Cup, as he strives to qualify in both solos and duos.

Cloak is a very talented player, known for his duo partnership with Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, the ex-FaZe Clan star currently embroiled in a legal battle against the organization. The players are still close though, as Cloak has allowed Tfue to move in with him until the situation is resolved.

However, while Tfue has qualified (twice) for the World Cup’s Solos, Cloak is yet to qualify either as a Solo, or as a Duo with Tfue. On June 1, he tweeted his disappointment in Epic Games over their scheduling.

FaZe ClanThe duo are regarded as one of the most talented pairings.

“Just found out E3 pro-am tourney is during the last duo week WC qualifier? Whose bright idea was that LOL @EpicGames,” he tweeted.

It’s clear Cloak feels the clash in scheduling will have an adverse effect on his and Tfue’s chances of qualifying – an issue other duos might not have if they’re not participating in the E3 tournament. 

Cloak is playing with DJ Dillon Francis at the pro-am, while other influencers like Dr Lupo, CouRage and Pokimane also participate with celebrity partners.

Twitter users had a mixed response to Cloak’s complaints, with one suggesting that they simply “don’t play in the Pro AM?” However, NRG Esports professional Svennoss tweeted his agreement with Lepore, saying that “it just keeps happening, unbelievable”.

Tfue has not commented publicly on the scheduling, and Epic Games have not yet announced any changes to the schedule, or responded to Cloak’s tweet.

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.
