Fortnite player Michael ‘IDropz_Bodies’ has won the $500K ‘Summer Skirmish’ Week Two Solos tournament, securing the $60,000 first place prize.

He was followed by FaZe Clan team captain Brian ‘Cloak’ Lepore in second and 100 Thieves content creator Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff in third, receiving $48K and $40K respectively. 

Before we recap the tournament, make sure to brush up on the scoring format for this competition:

The player with the highest score after 10 Solo matches will be named the winner. Victory Royales and Eliminations in this competition will be scored to determine placement at the end of the event. The top 20 players at the end of the Week 2 Summer Skirmish will be awarded. Scoring is as follows:

Victory Royales: +5 Points
Eliminations: +1 Point
20 or More Eliminations (per game): +10 Points and $10,000
Most Eliminations Overall: Bonus $50,000

Having been invited by Epic Games due to his strong results in the Fortnite ‘Solo Showdown’ even earlier in the year, Michael took this tournament by fire, coming out of the gate with several dominant performances, including 20+ kill efforts in his first two matches.

His victory was wire-to-wire, as he managed to maintain his early lead all the way to the end, finishing with a whopping 184 points.

FaZe’s Cloak started his climb slowly at first, but strung together several impressive performances to finish with 165 points, good enough for second.

He managed to get a victory in his tenth and final match, which sent console extraordinaire NICKMERCS to third with 159 points, despite impressively winning eight of his ten matches.

The Fortnite Summer Skirmish is an 8-week series of competitions where Epic Games will be awarding a total of $8 million in prize money. The competition features a variety of content creators, popular pro players, and top performers from previous in-game events. 

This $500K tournament was only the first half of this week’s $1 million ‘Summer Skirmish’ event; the second half is scheduled to be played on July 21 but will feature a different group of competitors.

Epic Games
Participants could only drop into 10 different matches for their total score.

The Rules for Streamer Bowl II were fairly straightforward if you’ve watched or participated in any competitive Fortnite events before. Players had 10 matches to drop into Solos games and attempt to increase their score as much as possible.

Five points were awarded per Victory Royale, with three for reaching the top two and one point from there. Kills also were worth a point each, which was of course the main focus for all of our top 10 finishers.
