NerdOut’s Fortnite Sunday Storm Rules Announced – Featuring Automatic Kill and Win Tracking Software

NerdOut’s next big $20,000 Fortnite tournament will use innovative software to track players kills and wins, encouraging aggressive play for eliminations plus other benefits.

The ruleset has been one of the main issues for competitive Fortnite – should it be based on eliminations, wins or both? KEEMSTAR’s ‘Friday Fortnite’ places all the emphasis on kills, while Epic Games’ first official ‘Summer Skirmsh’ used wins.

Community members have pointed out that placing no importance on eliminations results in less exciting gameplay, as players are more cautious when just going for the win.

But, to have no emphasis placed on winning at all also seems somewhat counter-intuitive, so NerdOut’s new points system could be the solution needed.

NerdOut’s ‘Little & Large’ tournaments have been running for a few weeks now, and have been a major success. But they will now host a new tournament with the help of ‘Bebo’, using their smart technology to track the leaders.

“The Bebo app will automatically track all your wins and kills. There will be a live leaderboard, and each kill will be worth one point. If you win that game, it will be worth ten points – you must play the game out in full.

Every hour, the bottom twenty scoring teams will be eliminated, until 20 teams remain. When only 20 teams remain, the bottom scoring team will be eliminated every 10 minutes, until one team is left standing.”

And the technology doesn’t stop there, as it will also work directly with Twitch to keep the score updated on players’ streams, meaning both the player and the viewers will always know the standings.

It fixes three of the main problems which have been caused with other methods – using stream delays, playing on far away servers when in the same lobby as another team, and downtime between games waiting on another team to finish.

The tournament will take place on July 22, and Twitch partners will be invited to take part (the technology does not work yet with Mixer/YouTube). 

There will also be an ‘affiliates’ tournament, where the top three Twitch affiliates will move on to play in the main $20,000 event.

Fortnite’s Marvel-themed Season 4 takeover is almost winding down, but there’s still plenty of opportunities to grab some last-minute XP boosts with our guide on the Week 10 challenges.

Season 4 of Fortnite has seen tons of new content over the weeks. On top of the ample supply of cosmetic unlocks, Epic has deployed everything from new abilities to secret challenges.

With the ongoing storyline teasing major changes each passing update, time is of the essence to get everything done before we reached Season 5. Once the rare items are gone from the game, there’s no chance at claiming them anytime in the future.

So if you’re trying to make every minute count and get the most of your experience gains, weekly challenges are for you.

Things couldn’t be simpler this time around and we’ve got you covered with everything there is to know about the week 10 objectives.

You’ll need to prioritizing vehicles early on to tick the latest challenges off your list.

First up, all of the usual tasks are listed once again. You’ll need to search some chests, find some quick kills, and collect various resources. These can all be smashed out in the blink of an eye without any real difficulty.

Vehicles will be a big priority over the next few days as there are three unique challenges to tick off. One will have you racing from The Fortilla to The Authority in under four minutes. Meanwhile, the other simply asks you to stay in a vehicle for a long period of time and travel the map.

Arguably the most difficult of the vehicle-specific challenges, you’ll need to eliminate a few enemies with them. This means you may have to catch some opposing players by surprise. Be on the lookout for explosives that could end your run before it really begins.

You can blitz through a handful of these activities at the same time but others require a more focused effort. Below is the full list of challenges for the latest week in Fortnite.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 10 Challenges

  • Search Chests at Upstate New York
  • Eliminations at Lazy Lake
  • Collect Metal from Slurpy Swamp
  • Catch fish at Heart Lake
  • Eliminate opponents by hitting them with vehicles
  • Drive a boat from The Fortilla to The Authority in less than 4 minutes
  • Ride 20,000 meters in a vehicle
  • Deal damage to opponents at Sentinel Graveyard

Expect the Sentinel Graveyard to be a hot drop for the next week.

You’ve still got a few weeks left to finish up the Season 4 Battle Pass. Though you may want to start rushing through not only these weekly tasks, but the secret challenges too. 

Every scrap of XP will help as you look to unlock the final rewards in the Marvel-centric update.
