Fortnite Pro WishYouLuck is Tired of Slander After a Player is Accused of Cheating in Summer Skirmish

A relative unknown has won the second edition of Fortnite’s Summer Skirmish and some other pros are throwing around accusations of cheating.

WishYouLuck, a friend of the winner, is tired of hearing the accusations and took to Twitter to defend the victory.

The Summer Skirmish had a new format for week two with solo players playing 10 games in public servers and adding up their kill totals.

iDropz_Bodies won the event with 184 kills in 10 games, beating out established pros by a wide margin. The Fortnite community immediately questioned the legitimacy of the win, due to iDropz_Bodies playing on console and not being visible on Fortnite’s official stream.

WishYouLuck had enough of the slander of iDropz_Bodies and posted the video below to Twitter.

He does not name names in the video, though members of FaZe Clan and OpTic Gaming have tweeted about the possibilities of cheating when a player is off stream.

WishYouLuck argued that Epic would be able to easily tell if iDropz_Bodies was cheating so if they have not said anything, his win should not be questioned.

He also called for the removal of players from Epic’s tournaments if they continue to not accept the results.

The Fortnite Summer Skirmish series is off to a rocky start, with the first edition of the tournament being cancelled due to performance issues with Epic’s private servers.

The second week was moved to public servers and an all new format, though this has led to the accusations of cheating. Fortnite has not commented on the accusations at this time.

Real Madrid and Brazil football star Casemiro has announced the launch of his own esports team, CaseEsports.

The defensive midfielder’s team will initially compete in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, debuting in the qualifier for DreamHack Masters Winter on November 3.

The decision to start a team, according to the org’s official website, was birthed from Casemiro’s “enthusiasm, desire to enjoy and passion for this game” – speaking specifically of Counter-Strike.

The organisation will provide a team of sports professionals to enhance the performance of their players. They plan to “lead the European esports scene” through “effort, perseverance and teamwork.”

CaseEsports will be hoping for land1n to make an instant impact.

The all-Brazilian roster that has been assembled includes former paiN Gaming and Tempo Storm players Denis “⁠dzt⁠” Fischer and Paulo “⁠land1n⁠” Felipe, former FURIA Academy duo Yan “⁠yepz⁠” Pedretti and Vinicius “⁠n1ssim⁠” Pereira, and former Imperial player Felipe “⁠delboNi⁠” Delboni.

CaseEsports has already secured the support of multiple sponsors, including peripherals brand HyperX, glasses retailer Hawkers, gaming chair brand Drift, and “fashion soccer” line BŮH.

“This team was created out of a hobby of mine that I really enjoy,” said Casemiro, according to HLTV. “I wanted to take it to a professional level, and just like in my career, I want them to be the best. I know that creating a new team and winning titles will take time and require a lot of work, but I hope that the players and the fans will really enjoy this project.”

Athletes starting their own esports teams is not a new trend by any means.

In the last few months alone, David Beckham launched Guild Esports, Manchester City star Sergio Aguero founded KRU Esports, and Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster started Team Diverge.
