Week three of Epic Games' 'Summer Skirmish' Fortnite competitive series will feature two Duos tournaments, both featuring close to $500,000 in prizes.
The first tournament will kick off on July 27 at 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET / 2100 BST, with the second one due to be played on the 28th but with a totally different set of competitors from the EU region.
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.
Here are the competitors for the Friday half of week three competitions:

Due to lag issues during week one, the second week's tournaments were both played on public servers rather than private matches.
However, it appears that Epic Games have fixed the issues as the third week of competition will be played back on private servers set up for the Summer Skirmish.
Here is how the scoring will work for this week's tournaments:
The first Duos team to reach 13 points is the winner. Victory Royales and Eliminations in this competition will be scored to determine placement at the end of the event. The top 20 teams at the end of the Summer Skirmish will be awarded.
Victory Royale: +4 Points
5 or more Eliminations: +2 Points
Most Eliminations (per match): $6500
Here is the breakdown for how the prize money will be divided among the top 20 players:
