NerdOut’s $10,000 ‘Rumble’ Fortnite tournament finished with a crazy grand final, as FaZe Clan’s Thiefs faced TSM’s Daequan in a match that came down to the wire.
The Rumble tournament featured a number of well known Fortnite players and streamers, including DrLupo, Nick Eh 30, Liquid Vivid, and Summer Skirmish winner Morguasse.
The format was a double elimination duos tournament. The team with the most kills after two games advanced to the next round, and unlike NerdOut’s Sabotage tournaments, sabotage was not allowed.
With such a stacked bracket, there wasn’t an easy match for any duo, but Thiefs and partner Thwifo, a Ghost Gaming pro, ran through the winners bracket to make it to the grand final.
They took out the likes of OpTic Maniac, Slappie and then Hysteria & Vivid in the winners finals, proving they could hang with some of the very best.
Their grand final opponents, Daequan and Yanni, had been knocked to down to the losers bracket with a loss to Vivid and Hysteria, but bounced back to secure top 2. In the final, Daequan and Yanni forced a second match, but lost 3-2 in the end.
Thiefs and Thwifo walked away $6,000 richer, while Daequan and Yanni were rewarded with $3,000 for their efforts.
It’s another big win for Ghost Gaming’s Thwifo, who managed 2nd in the recent Fall Skirmish event, netting $30,000.
