Online Fortnite league hosts ‘FN Pro League’ and social gaming organizers ‘Players’ Lounge’ have teamed up to host a 1v1 Playground LTM tournament featuring pro players and streamers.

The competition will be played for the first time on July 11th and will include a massive $10,000 prize pool.

The 1v1 Playground $10K tournament is set to feature 62 well-known names from the competitive Fortnite community, including pro players from FaZe Clan, OpTic Gaming, compLexity Gaming, and more.

The competition is sure to be fierce and tough as the field of participants will include some who regularly play in the weekly Friday Fortnite tournament, including four-time champion ‘Tfue,’ and Week Two winner ‘Thiefs.’

In addition, there will be two spots reserved for the winners of the qualifying tournaments that are open to all players, giving anyone the opportunity to compete against some of the world’s best players.

Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
