Hilarity Ensues When Nick28T Attempts to Revive Teammate During KEEMSTAR’s Friday Fortnite Tournament

Nicholas ‘Nick28T’ Kahwaji is well known for his FIFA gameplay, but recently he has been expanding into the realm of Fortnite and during week 5 of KEEMSTAR’s Friday Fortnite Tournament he made an epic blunder on stream.

With his teammate knocked and nearing death, Nick attempted to revive him only to find out he was reviving the wrong person.

There is no good time to make a fatal error, but perhaps, the worse time for such a mistake is when you are facing elimination in the losers bracket of a $20,000 tournament.

The weekly Friday Fortnite Tournament features a wide variety of popular steamers and professional gamers.

In his week five matchup, Nick28T, and his partner Craig ‘NepentheZ’ Douglas found themselves fighting for their tournament lives against iRunYew and AgholorTV after losing a first-round match to OpTic Gaming’s Baldy and Drama.

Nick and NepentheZ risked it all by dropping Tilted Towers in search of a high kill game that could have secured their advancement in the losers bracket. 

With both opponents downed or dead, the duo had an opportunity to slay out, but Nick failed to revive his teammate in what can best be described as a momentary lack of awareness.

The two FIFA streamers would fall short, losing the matchup and being eliminated from the event. 

They will look to bounce back in their run next week as they try and make it out of the first round.

Epic Games have confirmed that a Fortnitemares Afterlife Party event with J Balvin is set to rock the Main Stage in Party Royale. Here’s what you need to know.

Over the years, as Fortnite has grown more and more in popularity, Epic Games have teamed up with TV shows, movies, and musicians for a number of live events. 

This has included everything from something as simple as a DJ playing a few songs from their living room to showing off new trailer for a Star Wars movie. Though, it’s stretched all the way to Travis Scott having a jaw-dropping concert live event too. 

With Fortnitemares now being live, the next event will involve Colombian artist J Balvin debuting a new song during an ‘Afterlife’ concert. So, here’s everything you need to know. 

What time is the J Balvin event in Fortnite?

Just like a number of other events in Fortnite, there will be an initial showing before a number of encore shows so that everyone has the chance to get involved. 

The initial J Balvin show will get underway on Saturday, October 31st at 9 pm EDT/1 am GMT/6 pm PDT and 2 am CEST. Though, if you miss the live showing, there will be two other showings.

The first replay, according to Epic, will happen a day later on Sunday, November 1st at a much reasonable time for European fans – 1 pm EDT/6 pm BST/10 am PDT and 7 pm CEST. The second replay will be five hours later on the same day. 

How to get J Balvin Party Trooper Fortnite skin

While these events have, sometimes, given all players free rewards, the J Balvin event will be a little different. 

Instead, anyone who owns the Party Trooper skin that attends the Afterlife Party will unlock an exclusive J Balvin style. However, you don’t have to wear the skin to the event to unlock it, you just have to own it.

Where to find the J Balvin event in Fortnite

If you want to watch the event, as we’ve already noted, it’ll happen inside Party Royale. That’s slightly different to the usual Battle Royale and Creative modes. 

To access it, you’ll want to select the Party Royale game mode in the lobby screen and then search when the event goes live in the menus. Be sure to get in early for the live showing as you don’t want to miss out!

  1. Load up Fortnite
  2. Enter the Battle Royale lobby screen but change the playlist to Party Royale
  3. Search for a game and wait
  4. Once inside, head over to the Main Stage area on the east of the island and enjoy!

The Main Stage is where you’ll be able to find the Fortnite music events.

Obviously, you won’t be able to drop in and watch the show until the date and time that Epic has revealed, so don’t try and get involved too early. 

If you manage to get in, though, make sure to enjoy it and get involved with the party.
