YouTuber ‘Typical Gamer’ and SoaR Gaming Twitch streamer and YouTuber ‘Thief’ have won the second running of the KEEMSTAR ‘Friday Fortnite’ celebrity tournament.

They beat the Team SoloMid professional Fortnite player duo of ‘Daequan’ and ‘Hamlinz’ in an epic, two-game Grand Final, securing the entirety of the $10,000 prize.

Since Typical Gamer and SoaR Thief had made it to the Grand Final having won the Winners Bracket, they only needed to win one match to become champions. However, Daequan and Hamlinz won the first match handedly, resetting the bracket for a second match.

The winner-take-all match was a slow but very tight affair, as both teams kept getting clutch kills and keeping the pressure on each other.

Thief and Daequan got eliminated at the same time, putting Hamlinz and Typical Gamer in a head-to-head for the final few kills. 

However, the early lead in kills that Typical Gamer and Thief had gotten was just enough to push them over the top and give them the ‘Friday Fortnite’ championship.

Sponsored by popular YouTube Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem and UMG, the second running of the ‘Friday Fortnite’ tournament on May 18th featured some of the biggest names of the online gaming and content creation communities.

Members of FaZe Clan, Team SoloMid, The Sidemen, OpTic Gaming, 100 Thieves, and a host of other big YouTubers and Twitch streamers such as Ninja, MrBeast, Logan Paul, and more all competed for a piece of the massive $10,000 prize pool. 

Last week’s ‘Friday Fortnite’ champions, 100 Thieves streamer ‘Nickmercs’ and Luminosity Gaming’s ‘SypherPK,’ were back to defend their title but were shockingly eliminated in the first round.

Here are the final placements for ‘Friday Fortnite’ #2, followed by the finalized bracket of the entire tournament.

New Fortnite NFL skins arriving before Season 5: Release date & time

The National Football League and Epic Games have announced a continuation in their partnership, which is allowing for a slew of new NFL-themed skins in the mega-popular battle royale game Fortnite within the next few days. 

NFL skins in Fortnite are nothing new. Back in 2018, a slew of skins based on NFL football teams made their way into the game, much to the excitement of fans of the sport.

Unfortunately, while the skins returned to the Item Shop in early 2020 due to the Super Bowl, they never really gained notoriety, with the only exception being when Epic gave players a free refund for the skins after the Washington Football Team’s name and logo was changed a few months back.

Despite this, it seems like more NFL skins are on the way.

The new NFL skins will feature a redesigned look compared to their old versions.

The two mega companies have recently announced that they will be “extending” their partnership to allow for more NFL skins in Fortnite. According to a joint press release from both companies, the new skins will be completely redesigned from their previous looks and will have a “more athletic” and “aerodynamic look and feel”.

This new selection of skins will be called the Gridiron Gang Outfits and will represent all 32 NFL teams in both the AFC and NFC.

In addition to the newly redesigned skins, fans will also have a chance to get their hands on a brand new Back Bling for their NFL skins, named Logo-a-go-go. While the name’s a bit of a tongue-twister, these new items are basically just the logo for the team you want to represent stuck onto the back of your character.

Release Date and Time

According to the company, the skins and back bling will be added to the Fortnite Item Shop in just a few days, on November 25. Like every other item added to the in-game store, it should appear when the store gets updated that day.

Currently, the big unknown is how long the items will be in the shop for. Surely, they’ll only be available for a limited time, however, the exact time frame is unclear. It could be in their for as short as a day or maybe a bit longer.

Chances are though that Epic will give fans a few days to get their hands on it before pulling it from the store. Regardless, NFL fans should be ready to grab these items if they want it because with Fortnite, you never know when they’ll come back.
