YouTuber Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem and online tournament host UMG have teamed up once again to host the ninth running of the ‘Friday Fortnite’ celebrity tournament.

Returning for its ninth consecutive week on July 6th, the popular competition will once again feature a massive $20,000 prize pool divided among the top three finalists.

The brainchild of KEEMSTAR, Friday Fortnite features some of the biggest names in the online community, including members of the Clout Gang, FaZe Clan, Team SoloMid, The Sidemen, OpTic Gaming, 100 Thieves, Luminosity Gaming, and a host of other big YouTubers and Twitch Streamers such as Ninja, Roman Atwood, Nadeshot and more.

The winners of last week’s tournament were former Halo teammates Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Jacob ‘Hysteria’ Reiser, who will be teaming once again to defend their title and become the first two players other than FaZe’s ‘Tfue’ and ‘Cloak’ to have more than one championship under their belt.

The payouts for week nine of Friday Fortnite will be the following:

1st Place – $10,000

2nd Place – $7,000

3rd place – $3,000

The full bracket for this week’s tournament can be viewed by clicking the link below, which will automatically update as the competition progresses.

Since there are no custom games or lobbies in Fortnite yet, the tournament is played on public servers using the following rules:

Rules:

2v2 Matches

Streaming Rules:

UPDATED: You must have your delay set to 120 seconds on your OBS settings when you are streaming, failing to do so will result in a forfeit and or a replay of the match that was played.

How To Win:

For this tournament you will play two games. Each game you must keep track of your kills for each game played. The combined amount of kills for each game will determine which team will win the match. If out of the two games played the kills are tied a third map will be played to determine a winner for the match.

Sabotage:

You will party up as a SQUAD or DUOS with your opponent based on the type of match (1v1, 2v2). Any player inside of that queued session MAY NOT destroy any bases made by their opponent, make them fall, or any other actions that may help lead to that person’s death.

Examples of sabotage include but are not limited to:

  • Breaking or weakening opponent’s built or non built structures or cover by any means.
  • Causing opponents to miss shots or miss opportunities for advancing their scores in any way shape or form.
  • Building in front of your opponent.
  • Boogie Bombing your opponent.
  • The use of a boogie bomb on your opponent at any point in the game are subject to disqualifications.

Match Issues:

For no-shows in this tournament if you fail to respond within a fair given time frame you may be forfeited from the tournament.

All forfeits will be handled and made by the judgement of the UMG Admin Demo.

All forfeits to be valid will be reported by the players for them to seek if the match should be replayed and or a forfeit of the match.

The Friday Fortnite #9 tournament will be live-streamed and casted on the UMGEvents Twitch channel, as well as on the individual channels of many of the participants.

Streams of the competition will be added to this article once the start time of the competition draws near.

How to compete in Fortnite’s first Box Fight Tournament: date, prizes

Fortnite is about to launch its first-ever Box Fight Tournament, a creative 1v1 competition in an arena designed by winners of last month’s Princess Castle Creative Contest. If you’re interested in competing, here’s everything you need to know.

Fortnite is a competitive game at heart, but it’s also a wonderful platform for creative players. It’s the reason why the creative mode is so popular. Players can build their own islands and share them with others.

Last month, Fortnite celebrated its third birthday by hosting the Princess Castle Creative Contest. Essentially, players had to create and submit their own version of a Box Fight map.

For those who don’t know, Box Fighting is when two players are fighting within one tile of each other and inside a box. It’s unique in the sense that it combines competitive and creative skills.

Two players named HassanFTN and Shride won the contest. Their arena, named “Island of Dreams” (9005-6737-3429), was chosen to be showcased in the first official Box Fight Tournament.

The map used in the Box Fight Tournament was created by two winners of the Princess Castle Creative Contest.

How to compete in the Box Fight Tournament

To compete in the Box Fight Tournament, all you need to do is look for the Box Fight Tournament LTM on the main menu once it’s available.

However, there is an eligibility requirement. Players will need to have reached Open League (Division II) in Arena before the tournament begins. Don’t stress if you haven’t though. It’s very easy to do and will only take a couple of games.

The format is pretty straightforward. Players will duke it out in a one on one Box Fight against other players in their region.

It will follow a traditional tournament structure with multiple rounds. The more rounds you win, the higher you will climb. The player with the most wins at the end of the tournament is the winner.

Unfortunately, there hasn’t been any news on potential prizes yet. However, it will probably follow a similar system used in Wild Wednesdays. Keep in mind that these aren’t final, and they will be updated once more information is available.

Box Fighting requires calculated attacks and solid defense.

When does the Box Fight Tournament start?

Fortnite players don’t need to wait long. The Box Fight Tournament begins on Wednesday, October 28, which means it’s only one sleep away.

However, that also means if you haven’t ranked up enough in Arena to be eligible, you’ll need to hop in and get started before it’s too late.

Box Fighting is an important skill in Fortnite. In many ways, it’s what separates the wolves from the sheep.

If you’ve mastered it, the tournament is a good way to test your skills. Don’t be disheartened if you haven’t though. Taking part in the tournament is a good way to improve.
