Epic Games are giving Fortnite players the chance to have their very own Limited Time Mode ideas showcased in the battle royale game through the LTM Creator Contest.

The contest was launched on March 21, looking for the newest in-game LTM to join the ranks of Team Rumble, Solid Gold, 50v50 and their newest addition The Floor is Lava, which each have a different limited time spin on the normal battle royale game. 

So, here’s everything you need to know about Epic Games’ new LTM Creator Contest. 

Epic GamesFortnite Creators have come up with some ingenious idea already thanks to Creative Mode.

What can be created?

Epic Games have already laid out a detailed set of guidelines for creators to follow, with only a few limitations on what they can create. Game modes must allow for a minimum of four players and a maximum of 16, but there are no boundaries on how players can be split up.

The best creations will also last between 10 and 20 minutes and have plenty of replayability so that players continue to play the mode more than once. Apart from that, fans can go nuts and create anything they like – just as long as it’s fun to play.

What is the prize for the winner?

As well as having the glory of their new LTM added to Fortnite for others to play, the winning creator will also be added to the Support a Creator program – if they are not already a member.

Being a part of the Support a Creator program gives Fortnite creators a unique code that fans can use when purchasing cosmetics from the item shop. Inputting the code with their purchase will give a little bit back to the creator – allowing fans to show their support.

Epic GamesThe Block was introduced during Season 7 to reward creators by showing off the best creations in-game.

What details do you need to submit?

A YouTube video, the length of which has not been specified, showing off a fly-through of the game mode idea and an overhead view of the whole thing is needed in the submission. Entries must include the creator’s Discord name and email address so that players can be contacted with ease. 

The game’s title and a description will also be required, of course – judges will need to know what they’re playing and how to play it.

When is the closing date?

Players will have until April 8 at 11:59PM ET (April 9, 03:59AM GMT) before Epic closes the competition. All entries must be submitted to the official submission Google form once the creation is finished and ready.

There’s no date for when the winner will be announced. Although Epic says the winning LTM will be released “shortly” after. However, with a huge number of submissions likely to be made, it may take some time before they settle on a decision. 

Unlike submissions for The Block, there is no limit on the amount of memory that can be used with the modes. So, let your imagination run wild and may the best creator win! 


Tfue is still trying to get Hamlinz to finally make his Twitch return

Darryle ‘Hamlinz’ Hamlin was once one of the Kings of Twitch when Fortnite was taking off. However, the TSM star has fallen off the radar in the last 12 months. Fans are still holding out hope for his return though, and even Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney is trying to push him back live.

Hamlinz and Tfue were at the top of Fortnite together back in 2018 and 2019. They duo’d numerous times, and their fanbases were heavily intertwined.

However, Tfue has gone on to bigger and better things, but Hamlinz has fallen off the radar. He hasn’t streamed in over six months, and it seems like the community is antsy for the “30 minute a month” streamer’s return.

Hamlinz hasn’t streamed since March 2020, but his fans are trying to change that.

Tfue shared a conversation he recently had with Hamlinz on Twitter, with a few comments trying to nudge the TSM streamer to return to the platform.

“Bro you forgot to end your stream. I don’t know if you meant to,” Hamlinz said to Tfue after his November 17 broadcast.

Tfue came back with a tongue-in-cheek comment, but one that resonated with a lot of people in the Twitch community. “Bro you forgot to start yours,” he said in reply.

It comes after the Twitch community continues to rally behind Hamlinz to make his return to the platform. Hamlinz last streamed on March 17, 2020 ⁠— over six months ago. In the last 12 months, he has streamed a total of 105 hours ⁠— a far cry from numbers he was pulling in 2018.

While he was averaging over 10,000 viewers right up until the end, Hamlinz’s disappearance has worried fans. He hasn’t just been inactive on Twitch, but also across social media, Hamlinz has very rarely posted.

However, there is a chance that the TSM star could be returning to streaming. Hamlinz said in an October 26 tweet he was “feeling like [himself again].”

The streamer took some time off across 2019 to deal with personal issues. He was suffering health issues earlier in the year, and then his grandfather passed away later in the year. His grandmother was also diagnosed with breast cancer.

“I needed some time by myself to rekindle, get my thoughts together, and get myself together, because I’ve never lost anyone close,” he told fans in October.

While Hamlinz hasn’t locked in a return stream date yet, his fans are hoping it’ll be just around the corner. Better yet, he could come back alongside his old duo Daequan, and live it up like its the early days of Fortnite all over again.

That’s sure to get the fans excited again, if it ever ends up happening.
