KEEMSTAR gives a big update on return of Friday Fortnite tournament

The potential return of KEEMSTAR’s Friday Fortnite tournament has been given a major boost, after the Drama Alert host confirmed things were in motion for a comeback event.

If unfamiliar, Friday Fortnite was, as the name suggests, a weekly Fortnite tournament held every Friday, with only the biggest streamers and YouTubers invited to play.

The tournaments attracted tens of millions of viewers every week across all channels, but KEEMSTAR later had to end the tournament due to clashes with Epic Games’ own ‘Skirmish’ series.

Epic Games, developers of Fortnite, also imposed a rule that no third party tournaments could offer prize pools higher than $10,000, and had their million dollar tournaments running over weekends, prompting KEEMSTAR to discontinue Friday Fortnite.

However, the community has demanded its return ever since, with the format loved by spectators and players alike – and KEEMSTAR has long been hinting at running another tournament.

In his latest Drama Alert video, on January 7, KEEMSTAR states “Speaking of my tournament, Friday Fortnite, it’s returning! Just want to let you know, we’re working on it, it’s going to be out soon.

The last we heard about the potential return of Friday Fortnite suggested that KEEMSTAR would stick to Epic Games’ limit of a $10,000 prize pool.

There are currently no major Epic Games ran tournaments ongoing, although 2019 is set to have a packed schedule, with the Fortnite World Cup starting. 

It means that currently there is a small window for KEEMSTAR and his team to organize at least one comeback tournament.

Fortnite Streamer Bowl II rules

Epic Games
Participants could only drop into 10 different matches for their total score.

The Rules for Streamer Bowl II were fairly straightforward if you’ve watched or participated in any competitive Fortnite events before. Players had 10 matches to drop into Solos games and attempt to increase their score as much as possible.

Five points were awarded per Victory Royale, with three for reaching the top two and one point from there. Kills also were worth a point each, which was of course the main focus for all of our top 10 finishers.
