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.

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.

Valorant developers Riot Games have announced First Strike: Europe, the first-ever Valorant tournament wholly produced by Riot, set to kick off in November with some of the region’s best talent.

Since Valorant launched in June, it has become one of the most exciting games in esports, with players from all different titles migrating to Riot’s first-ever FPS. Some of the biggest competitors from the likes of Overwatch, CSGO and more are looking to make a name for themselves in the new shooter.


As a result, we’ve already seen some incredible talent, tense moments and top performances in a competitive setting, but now it’s becoming a little more official with the announcement of this highly-anticipated tournament.

So, with First Strike: Europe around the corner, here’s everything you need to know to tune in to the tournament, and even get involved yourself.

Open qualifiers for First Strike take place from November 9-22, giving teams around two weeks to stave off the best competition in the region and qualify for the main event.

The schedule for Open Qualifiers will be as follows:

  • Week 1
    • November 9-10: Qualifier A
    • November 11-12: Qualifier B
    • November 13: Play-In #1
    • November 14-15: Playoffs
  • Week 2

Eligibility for Valorant First Strike: Europe

As the name suggests, the Open Qualifiers for the tournament are open to (almost) anybody. You don’t have to be a pro player to sign up, but you have to be over the age of 16 and you will need to reach the rank of Immortal 1 by the time you register.

Riot haven’t specified how people can apply and register for the tournament yet, but advise in their announcement that full rules for the event and how to apply will be available in the coming weeks — and we’ll be sure to update this page as soon as we know.

The tournament format is fairly simple to follow throughout, from the qualifiers right up to the main event. Here’s how the single-elimination tournament works:

  • Qualifiers and Play-Ins: Best of 1
  • Playoffs: Best of 3
  • Quarterfinals and semifinals: Best of 3
  • Finals: Best of 5

With best of 1s in qualifiers and play-ins we might see some upsets, but finishing the tournament on a best of 5 means we really will see the two best teams in Europe fight it out and showcase their talent across all maps, proving how much they’ve mastered the game so far.

With G2 Esports undoubtedly the strongest team in the region since competition started, the main question now is whether they can prove it in Valorant’s biggest tournament yet.
