The week one tournament for the Fortnite ‘Fall Skirmish’ competition series has now concluded for both the European and North American regions.
The team of ‘VapeJesus’ and ‘ZexRow’ took home the NA crown, while ‘Kinstaar’ and ‘Hunter’ were victors in the EU half of the event.
Both teams secured $67,500 as part of their first place prize, as well as a whopping 305 points for their Clubs, which are the Rift Raiders and Dusty Dogs respectively.
In order to better understand the recap, please look over the six-match Duos format used for week one, called Hold the Throne.

In second place came the Ghost Gaming duo of ‘Bizzle’ and ‘Dmo,’ who used consistent play throughout the tournament to finish with 10 points and $47,500 points to their name, as well as secure 215 points for the Fort Knights.
In third place came NRG Esports pro ‘Zayt’ and his Team EnVy partner ‘LeNain,’ who accumulated nine points and just missed out on second place by a single tally.

In addition to their fifth place winnings, Team Liquid teammates ’72Hrs’ and ‘Chap’ also secured the ‘On the Throne’ $50,000 bonus for the NA region, thanks to their 11 elimination performance in a single match.
