The competitive Solos tournament for week four of the Fortnite Fall Skirmish series has all wrapped up for both the European and North American regions. 

FaZe Clan’s ‘Tfue’ was the victor in the NA half of the competition, while free agent competitive player ‘Boyer’ took home the EU crown. Both players secured $37,500 for finishing first, as well as 170 Club points for the Rift Raiders and Dusty Dogs respectively.

In order to better understand the following recap, look over the details of the six-match Solos format used for this week, called Big Bonus.

Victory Royale: +3 Points
2nd-3rd Place: +2 Points
4th-10th Place: +1 Point

7+ Eliminations: +3 Points
5-6 Eliminations: +2 Points
3-4 Eliminations: +1 Point

Big Bonus: +1 point for each elimination after 7 eliminations


NA RECAP

FaZe Clan pro player Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney finished first place in the NA tournament thanks to a dominant 13 points. His championship run was fueled by an impressive back-to-back Victory Royales in matches 2-3, with four and five eliminations respectively

He was followed by Team Liquid pro ‘Vivid,’ who also finished the event with 13 points. The placing was good enough to secure $30,000 and 135 points for the Lucky Llamas.

His clutch performance in the sixth and final match was crucial to secure second place, as he got the Victory Royale with five eliminations, but missed out on first because Tfue had two match victories.

Team Liquid had another player finish in the top-three as POACH’s nine points were enough for third place. POACH took home $25,000 and 115 points for the Lucky Llamas.

Seven of his nine points came in the first match, where he also activated the Big Bonus twice, earning an additional $15,000. He ended up as the only NA player to reach more than seven eliminations in a single match.

Here are the top-20 finishers in the NA half of the tournament, along with their earned prizes and Club points. The full final placements for all 100 NA players can be seen on the Fall Skirmish event page here.


EU RECAP

Free agent competitive player Boyer used his strong eight point performance to claim the top spot in the EU half of the competition. His victory comes on the virtue of him owning the Victory Royale/eliminations tiebreaker.

Here is Boyer’s live reaction after the final standings were announced on the Fortnite broadcast:

Coming in second place, also with eight points, was ‘Tschilinken,’ who is also yet to find an organization to represent. His placing earned him $30,000 and 135 points for the Fort Knights.

He was followed in third by Ghost Gaming pro Kamo, who finished with seven points, securing $25,000 and 115 points for the Lucky Llamas. His Victory Royale in match four was critical in helping him finish in the top three.

Here are the top-20 finishers in the EU half of the tournament, along with their earned prizes and Club points.

English professional football club Leeds United have established a partnership with longstanding esports organization Ninjas in Pyjamas.

The alliance centers around FIFA — specifically for the third season of the ePremier League, the official esports league associated with the top flight of English football.

Leeds United have joined the ePremier League after being promoted to the Premier League for the 2020/21 season.

At the time of publication, Ninjas in Pyjamas have one FIFA player; Swedish player Olle ‘Ollelito’ Arbin joined the organization in February 2020.

The ePremier League was confirmed to return for its third season on November 26. It has a combined prize purse of £40,000 across PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and will see FIFA players represent Premier League clubs.

“Promotion to the Premier League has given the club some amazing opportunities so far with involvement in the ePremier League the latest chance for the club to grow and impress,” said Leeds United’s executive director Paul Bell.

“Just as Marcelo has done with the men’s first team, we intend on making our presence in the league known and being competitive straight away, creating a partnership with NiP will give us a fantastic foundation to do so. Bring it on.”

The competition starts with online qualification in January 2021, with representatives for each team competing to see who will advance to online playoffs. In-person finals are expected to take place in the spring, though dates are yet to be confirmed.

The ePremier League finals will once again be broadcast across Sky Sports, Premier League’s digital channels, and EA SPORTS’ FIFA channel on Twitch.

In the second season of the tournament, Watford emerged victorious with Tom ‘Hashtag Tom’ Leese taking the top spot and the £20,000 first-place prize. Bournemouth, Chelsea, and Liverpool rounded out the top four finishers.
