The May 31 running of Friday Fortnite has now wrapped up, with NRG Esports pro players MrSavage and Benjyfishy beating Ghost Gaming’s Kamo and Issa in the Grand Final to take first place.
After nearly a year absence, the fan-favorite Friday Fortnite tournament series was revived by YouTuber Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem and FaZe Clan, who donated $60,000 to fund three week’s worth of competitions.
Below you can find everything you need to know about the results of the tournament so far, including the updated list of final placements.
Grand Final recap
Having already beaten MrSavage and Benjyfishy in the Winner’s Bracket Final, Kamo and Issa came into the Grand Final knowing they just had to win one series to take home the grand prize, while their NRG opponents had to win two.
This turned out to be a huge plus for the Ghost players, who actually lost the first series, despite the fact that Issa had a memorable performance in the second map that almost gave them the come-from-behind win.

With the bracket reset and all left to play for in the second series, Kamo and Issa came out red out in the first map, building a convincing 21-13 lead.
However, both Ghost players were eliminated halfway through the second map, giving MrSavage and Benjyfishy a great opportunity to come back and steal the match.
The NRG players took full advantage of their chance, grabbing the necessary kills to clinch the comeback 31-30 victory and the Friday Fortnite championship.

Friday Fortnite bracket
Here is the entire live bracket for the May 31 Friday Fortnite, including both the Winners and Losers Brackets.
Match of the tournament
With this week’s Friday Fortnite being as stacked as it was, there were many intense and high-profile matchups, along with inspirational moments and performances.
The match that most will likely consider to be the best of the tournament was the Losers Bracket Final between the eventual champions MrSavage and Benjyfishy squaring off against Ninja and Reverse 2k.
The match ended up going all the way to a third map, thanks to Ninja’s incredibly clutch series of kills to tie the score at the very end of map two.

How Friday Fortnite works
Friday Fortnite is a double-elimination tournament that use the popular ‘total of two’ and ‘bot race’ formats. In each round, the teams that get matched up queue into a public Squads lobby together, where they try to get as many eliminations as possible.
After two Squads matches, the team with the most combined eliminations gets to advance, while a third match if played if the two teams end up tied.
