The Duos tournament for week five of the Fortnite Fall Skirmish competition series has come to an end for both the European and North American regions.
The Team Liquid pro player Duo of ’72Hrs’ and ‘Chap’ were victors of the NA tournament, while Gentside Esports’ ‘Blaxou’ and ‘Madzen’ took home the crown in the EU half of things.
Both Duos took home $67,500 for taking first place, and a whopping 610 points for the Bush Bandits, since all four players were part of the same Club.
In order to better understand this recap, look over the details of the six-match Duos format used for this week, called ‘Royale Flush.’
Victory Royale: +3 Points
2nd-3rd Place: +2 Points
4th-5thth Place: +1 Point
8+ Eliminations: +3 Points
6-7 Eliminations: +2 Points
4-5 Eliminations: +1 Point
Team Liquid’s 72Hrs and Chap are two of the most dominant Fortnite players in the world, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that they dominated the NA field by earning 11 points, five more than the second place team.
They were followed by FaZe Clan pro players ‘Tennp0’ and ‘Jaomock,’ who got 7 points to secure $47,500 and 215 points for the Fort Knights. The pair got a Victory Royale in the first match, with three eliminations.

The pair were also in a four way tie with Chap and 72Hrs, Team EnVy’s LeNain and Scatch, and SSG’s Colton and Ghost Gaming’s Thwifo for the $25,000 bonus for getting most eliminations in a single match.
