Wix is donating $1000 to the Southeast Llama Rescue for every Fortnite loot llama destroyed by a member of FaZe Clan during the Fortnite World Cup.

Loot llamas hold a lot of in-game goodies in the battle royale title and can easily help you get geared up for the endgame, but now they have the potential to benefit real-life llamas each time they are destroyed, depending on who gets to them first.

Wix has partnered with the Southeast Llama Rescue and will be giving out a grand to the charity for each llama destroyed by the FaZe members during the Solo World Cup Finals and Duo World Cup Finals, as well as the Charity Match and World Cup Pro-Am Finals.

BBCMongraal is a very recent signee and will be representing FaZe in the World Cup.

FaZe Clan has six players representing them during the World Cup, so there’s a decent chance we’ll be seeing some llamas being destroyed here, which is good news for everyone that is backing the cause. 

Each qualified player has a decent chance of winning the whole tournament, too, so if they are able to survive to endgame during each round, we expect to see at least one llama being put to the sword. 

Since Wix is partnered with FaZe, this charity offer isn’t extended to every player in the World Cup, so you’ll have to be rooting for them if you want to see any money go to the llamas.

With each round of Fortnite spawning multiple of the in-game loot items, there’s certainly the potential for a lot of money to be raised. 

Epic GamesThe World Cup is here.

When does the Fortnite World Cup begin?

The main tournaments of the Solos and Duos don’t kick off until July 27 and 28 respectively, but the Creative World Cup and Celebrity Pro-Am are both starting July 26.

It’s set up to be an action-packed weekend and even Epic themselves is calling it the “greatest tournament of all time.” 

Only time will tell if that’s true, but it’s hard to deny the excitement and hype Epic have built around this event.


Has LazarBeam quit Fortnite?

Fans of YouTube star Lannan ‘LazarBeam’ Eacott have been questioning whether or not he’s quit playing Fortnite after not uploading a gameplay video in a good while. 

The original rise of Fortnite saw creators from across the globe explode in popularity regardless of whether they were focused on livestreaming on Twitch or making videos for YouTube.

However, some of the original big names like Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, and Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff, among others, have turned away from Fortnite and decided to play games like Valorant and Warzone. 

Plenty of creators still remain, though, they have issues with a lack of updates, and how the competitive scene is being run, to name just a few problems. Now, fans of LazarBeam have been asking if he is following the likes of Ninja and Tfue, and walking away from Fortnite. 

Lazarbeam is one of the most popular Australian creators around.

Did LazarBeam quit Fortnite?

Even though his fellow Aussies like Fresh, Lachlan, and LoserFruit have carried on playing Fortnite, LazarBeam hasn’t uploaded a YouTube video about it since mid-December. Though, he has tweeted about it and played the battle royale since.

In that time of not uploading a Fortnite video, he’s made videos on Among Us and Spellbreak, while also uploading his usual meme reactions from TikTok, as well as a more personal video reflecting on how 2020 went for him. 

In a recent stream though, he did say he was quitting the game after uninstalling. “I’ve decided to uninstall Fortnite. I’ve quit the game. I’m quitting it right now,” LazarBeam said. “I’m done forever.” Though, it’s hard to say if he’s being totally serious, given that he is one of YouTube’s funniest creators.

Will LazarBeam return to Fortnite?

It could be the case that he returns to Epic Games’ battle royale soon, perhaps once a new update is released. 

Other content creators have done similar, taking breaks because the devs aren’t rolling out as many regular updates as they used to, and the game feels a bit stale. But, we’ll just have to wait and see if that’s the case for LazarBeam whenever v15.30 launches.
