YouTuber Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem has announced that major scheduling changes are coming to his prized weekly Battle Royale tournaments.

Starting on July 29, the popular Friday Fortnite celebrity competition, which features a $20K prize pool, will be moved to Sundays and become ‘Sunday Fortnite,’ and the $100k Realm Royale tournament will be moved to Thursdays, effective July 19.

KEEMSTAR announced these date changes on July 12 via a post on his Twitter page. Until then, Friday Fortnite will continue to be played on the 13th and 20th of July, as regularly planned.

Once the scheduling change comes into effect, the start time for the new Sunday Fortnite will also be changed, going from 1 PM PT to 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET.

As Keem alluded to in the tweet above, these scheduling changes are being made in reaction to Epic Games’ recently announced ‘Summer Skirmish’ Fortnite tournaments, which will be taking place every weekend over the next 8 weeks.

Although he isn’t too happy about it, the YouTuber understands that there is nothing he can do when it comes to the schedule that Epic has chosen for its competitions.

It will be worth keeping an eye on how these scheduling changes will affect Friday Fortnite, which has reached unprecedented success in terms of both viewership and participation.

At least for the Realm Royale tournament, these changes should not have much effect since it has not yet been played due to multiple delays.


Fortnite invisibility glitch lets players cause absolute chaos

Fortnite players have got a new way to go invisible and troll their opponents, and it involves using the Mudflap truck. 

As the Fortnite seasons have unfolded, and Epic Games has added plenty of new content to the battle royale, players have found more and more ways to get an advantage over their opponents – be it legitimately or by using glitches and exploits. 

In the past, these glitches have ranged from being able to use whatever skin you want, getting under the map, and being able to carry more items than normally allowed. 

There have also been God Mode and invisibility exploits too. While Epic has been pretty good at rooting those out, even disabling the items that help players use these glitches, there’s a new one they’ll have to get rid of.

The Mudflap truck is central to the new glitch.

The new invisibility glitch was pointed out by YouTuber GlitchKing who showed that it works similar to the invisibility glitch with the boat in seasons past. 

Players have to be knocked at the same time they’re entering a Mudflap truck, and then by doing so, are thrown underneath the truck while knocked. If they’re then picked up a teammate, they are invisible to everyone else in the lobby. 

Sometimes it doesn’t work as intended, obviously, as GlitchKing showed that his friend had attempted it a few times – once being throw under the map and another being eliminated altogether.

Obviously, when players are invisible, it’s impossible to get a read on their position. As GlitchKing demonstrated, he was able to cause havoc by damaging enemies who were clueless as to where he was. Though, he did give the game away by picking up knocked enemies.

Given that the glitch revolves around the Mudflap, Epic might have to disable the vehicle while they get things figured out, but as of writing, the problem hasn’t made its way to their Trello board so it remains to be seen as to whether or not they’re aware of it.
