Twitch Rivals and Epic Games have teamed up for Week Six of the Fortnite ‘Summer Skirmish’ competitive series.

The scheduling for this week’s tournament will be different than previous weeks; North American and European players will play their matches across both August 17 and 18, with each region playing five matches per day.

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 competitions feature a variety of content creators, popular pro players, and top performers from previous in-game events. 

The Week 6 action began on August 17 with five games for the EU region and five games for the North American region. For the recap on what happened on August 17, check out our Week 6 Day 1 recap.

The same schedule will also be in place for August 18, as and both regions playing another five games each to finish off their respective tournaments. Day two begins at 12:00 PM EDT.

Summer Skirmish Week 6 Format – Kingpin

Although the start times are different for this week of the Summer Skirmish, Epic liked Week 5’s format enough to bring it back.

The Week 6 format will once again be Kingpin.

The team with the most points at the end of eight matches wins. Eliminations earn players points towards placement at the end of the event. Earning a Victory Royale will provide a team with a 3x Elimination bonus in the next match.

Elimination: +1 Point
Victory Royale: 3x Elimination Bonus Next Match
7+ Eliminations: 2x Elimination Bonus Next Match

* These multipliers do not stack and only last for the next game. For example, an 8 elimination game with a Victory Royale would only grant a x3 multiplier to points for next game, not a x5 multiplier for next game.

The one major difference between this week’s format and last week’s is the prize breakdown. In Week 5, the prizes were awarded to players after the completion of the tournament, whereas Week 6’s prizes are awarded after each of the five matches.

Here are how the prizes will be broken down on a per match basis:

Popular YouTuber Lachlan Power is the next Fortnite star to be added to the game, and Epic Games have now confirmed just when the upcoming Icon Series skin will be available. Here’s what you need to know.

Since Fortnite first exploded in popularity in 2017, there have been a few streamers and YouTubers who have become known for creating content around the game and bringing the battle royale title to the next level.

Epic previously announced that they would be rewarding some of these stars with their very own in-game skins bundles, and among the few confirmed was Australian YouTuber Lachlan Power.

Lachlan will be the third creator to get an Icon Series set.

When will Lachlan’s Icon Series skin be released?

With the likes of Ninja and fellow Aussie Loserfruit being first to receive skins in the Icon Series, Lachlan is now next in line to receive these new cosmetics.

In their latest blog post, Epic Games confirmed that Lachlan’s Icon Series set will arrive in the Fortnite item shop on November 12 at 4PM PT/ 7PM ET/ 11PM GMT/ 9AM AEST.

“Lachlan is the third creator to join the Icon Series from among the Fortnite community, following streamers Ninja and Loserfruit.” they announced, before confirming the next creator to be added, “Entering the Icon Series next will be Spanish creator TheGrefg.”

Lachlan’s Icon Series set will arrive with a new tournament that players can compete in, to unlock the skin for free. The YouTuber will also be competing in the event and giving fans the first look at the bundle, which includes an outfit, back bling, emote, and a pickaxe.

As of now, little has been shared about the upcoming tournament but Epic has revealed it to be “one-of-a-kind” with more information to follow before the event.

“Been dreaming of this day ever since I fell in love with the game back in 2017,” Lachlan reacted, revealing his excitement for the upcoming skin release, “official reveal of the skin coming soon.”

The official reveal of this skin is currently expected to be shared on November 1, and the next Fortnite star for the icon series will be Spanish star TheGrefg, although it is unclear just when he will receive a skin bundle.
