After many Fortnite players were shocked to find the 14 Days of Fortnite event had ended earlier than expected, Epic Games has now announced compensation for those who missed out on the final reward. 

Each day of the 14 Days of Fortnite holiday event brought new challenges and rewards for players to obtain, with the final one being the Equalizer Glider as a way to ring in  the new year. 

Early on in the event, it was announced that the challenges would be available until January 3 or 4 to give players some extra time to complete the challenges. 

Upon logging in on January 2, however, players quickly noticed that the challenges were all gone, meaning that many missed out on the final reward. 

To compensate for this oversight, Epic Games has announced that anyone who completed at least one challenge during the event will be granted the Equalizer Glider.

There’s no official date as to when players will receive the items, with Epic Games simply announcing that they would come in the “near future.” 

Regardless of when players finally receive the items, they will surely be happy to pick up one of the most sought after items of the entire event. 

In the meantime, players can also look forward to the recently announced v7.10 content update #3 that’s set to go live on January 8. 

While there’s no official confirmation on what we’ll see in the update, it’s expected that we’ll see the delayed Driftboard or leaked Machine Pistol once it finally goes live.

Tottenham Hotspur player Dele Alli has roasted England international teammate Kieran Trippier over his gaming skills, bluntly calling him “really bad” at Fortnite.

Alli has recently become a global ambassador for Excel, one of the 10 League of Legends teams in the LEC and a powerhouse of UK esports, having made clear his love of gaming in recent years with his streams on Twitch.

Dele sat down to talk about his love of gaming with Excel, discussing FIFA, Fortnite, and some of the other top footballers he’s played with — but had a few less-than-savoury thoughts on his former Spurs teammate’s abilities.

After being asked who’s “not very good at gaming,” Trippier fell immediately into the firing line.

Dele joins a growing list of footballers getting involved in the esports scene in one way or another.

With a laugh at his friend’s misfortune, Dele revealed that the former Spurs man, unfortunately, falls into that category.

“Kieran Trippier was very late to gaming” Dele said, offering his former teammate somewhat of a lifeline. Before cracking up laughing again, the star added: “He jumped on it and he’s got a lot better but, at the start…”

Dele continued: “He joined Fortnite when we had all been playing for a while, and it was the first time he had played with a controller… so if you tell him to press X, he wouldn’t know which was X.”

Not content with letting his name be slandered in the gaming world, Kieran himself quickly responded with some laughing emojis, backing himself up by clarifying that he actually “wasn’t that bad,” though it doesn’t sound great for the full back.

Now, surely, fans will be desperate to see Dele and Kieran go head-to-head with one another to see if the latter is really as bad as he sounds.
