The June 7 running of Friday Fortnite has now wrapped up, with FaZe Clan pro players Jarvis and Tilt beating their org teammate NICKMERCS and his duo Nio in the grand final to take first place.

After nearly a full year of absence, the popular Friday Fortnite tournament series returned on May 31 for three $20,000 competitions, thanks to a generous $60,000 donation from FaZe Clan.

The June 7 running was the second of the three tournaments, and you can find everything you need about the results of the tournament below, including a recap of the grand final, updated list of final placements, the lucky viewer who won $10,000, and the finalized bracket. 

Grand Final recap

Jarvis and Tilt came into the Grand Final having won the Winner’s Bracket, meaning that they had to only win one of two series to clinch the championship.

NICKMERCS and Nio, on the other hand, had two win two straight matches, as they had been relegated to the Loser’s Bracket during the sixth round of the tournament.  

The first map of match one started off well for the FaZe duo, as they took advantage of their opponents falling early to rack up some eliminations and take a 27-18 lead going into the second map.

With their backs against the wall, Nick and Nio came out hot in the map two, coming all the way to get within one of the leaders, but ultimately being unable to take the lead and force a second, do-or-die series.

Thanks to their 26-18 margin in the second map, Jarvic and Tilt won the match with an overall score of 53-36, clinching their first ever Friday Fortnite championship.

Friday Fortnite bracket (June 7)

How Friday Fortnite works

Friday Fortnite is a weekly tournament that brings together some of the biggest content creators and pro players of the online gaming community, sometimes even featuring celebrities.

The tournament is double-elimination, and uses the exciting ‘total of two’ and ‘bot race’ format. In each round, the teams that get matched up queue into a public Squads lobby together, where they try to get as many eliminations as possible.

After two Squads matches, the team with the most combined eliminations gets to advance, while a third match is played if the two teams end up tied.

Empire continue championship form, FaZe (and Surge) falter

The Dallas Empire were the best Call of Duty team in 2020 and that form has lasted into 2021. The day started with 2020 MVP Anthony ‘Shotzzy’ Cuevas-Castro racking up 35 kills and just 17 deaths with almost two minutes of hill time on Map 1, but then it became the Indervir ‘iLLeY’ Dhaliwal show as the upsurging player hit star form with some huge clutches.

With Empire cleaning up their former teammate James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks’ New York Subliners, the day moved on with two tight Map 5’s. First, Bryan ‘Apathy’ Zhelyazkov and the Los Angeles Guerrillas outdueled a revamped Seattle Surge 3-2 and then, in a twist few saw coming, the Florida Mutineers came back against the Atlanta FaZe.

As Cesar ‘Skyz’ Bueno returned to the form that earned him MVP candidacy in 2020, the Mutineers flew back from a 2-1 deficit and eventually clinched the 3-2 victory against a FaZe team who stood near the top of most standings for this season.
