Friday Fortnite was one of the first Fortnite competitions to bring together the game’s biggest streaming stars and professional players, like Ninja, Tfue, Cloak and NICKMERCS, and it quickly became a massive hit.

KEEMSTAR has been vocal in his criticism of the way that Epic Games handled the situation but also made it clear on a number of occasions that he intended to bring Friday Fortnite back once he could secure the right funding.
