Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Jimmy ‘HighDistortion’ Moreno are known as two of the best Fortnite players in the world, and the pair are extremely close to breaking the 100,000 eliminations barrier.

The streamer who reaches this enormous milestone first will become the first Fortnite player to do so, etching their name into the history books.

While the battle is extremely close, it’s estimated that Moreno will hit 100,000 eliminations first, as the Team SoloMid streamer appears to play twice as many games per day compared to Ninja.

Both men are incredibly close to 100,000 eliminations.

Based on Season 7 statistics, Ninja does average more eliminations per match than HighDistoration, however due to Moreno’s higher play time, he actually averages 232 kills per day compared to Ninja’s 135.

With that all considered, it’s expected that HighDistortion will hit the 100,000 mark around January 25, while Ninja would be unlikely to hit it before February 4th.

At time of writing, Ninja is currently leading the race with 97,033 kills, with HighDistortion hot on his heels with 96, 907, just 126 kills behind the Luminosity member according to Fortnite Tracker.

Of course, while these statistics gives an idea of what may happen, they will mean nothing if these variables change, especially if Ninja begins to play as many games as HighDistortion.

While both players had refrained from mentioning the race to the 100K milestone, Moreno has begun titling his streams with references to the friendly competition, while Ninja uploaded a video to YouTube titled “The Race for 100K Eliminations!” on Tuesday, January 8.


Just as the race between the streamer was heating up, Ninja announced on Twitter that he would be giving up on it. 

“Taking a break and giving up on the race to 100K,” Ninja told his fans on Twitter. “HighDistortion doing 30-hour streams. [Kid’s] a monster.” 

HighDistortion has yet to respond to Ninja’s concession and is currently over 20 hours into his planned 30-hour stream.

Epic Games have confirmed that a Fortnitemares Afterlife Party event with J Balvin is set to rock the Main Stage in Party Royale. Here’s what you need to know.

Over the years, as Fortnite has grown more and more in popularity, Epic Games have teamed up with TV shows, movies, and musicians for a number of live events. 

This has included everything from something as simple as a DJ playing a few songs from their living room to showing off new trailer for a Star Wars movie. Though, it’s stretched all the way to Travis Scott having a jaw-dropping concert live event too. 

With Fortnitemares now being live, the next event will involve Colombian artist J Balvin debuting a new song during an ‘Afterlife’ concert. So, here’s everything you need to know. 

What time is the J Balvin event in Fortnite?

Just like a number of other events in Fortnite, there will be an initial showing before a number of encore shows so that everyone has the chance to get involved. 

The initial J Balvin show will get underway on Saturday, October 31st at 9 pm EDT/1 am GMT/6 pm PDT and 2 am CEST. Though, if you miss the live showing, there will be two other showings.

The first replay, according to Epic, will happen a day later on Sunday, November 1st at a much reasonable time for European fans – 1 pm EDT/6 pm BST/10 am PDT and 7 pm CEST. The second replay will be five hours later on the same day. 

How to get J Balvin Party Trooper Fortnite skin

While these events have, sometimes, given all players free rewards, the J Balvin event will be a little different. 

Instead, anyone who owns the Party Trooper skin that attends the Afterlife Party will unlock an exclusive J Balvin style. However, you don’t have to wear the skin to the event to unlock it, you just have to own it.

Where to find the J Balvin event in Fortnite

If you want to watch the event, as we’ve already noted, it’ll happen inside Party Royale. That’s slightly different to the usual Battle Royale and Creative modes. 

To access it, you’ll want to select the Party Royale game mode in the lobby screen and then search when the event goes live in the menus. Be sure to get in early for the live showing as you don’t want to miss out!

  1. Load up Fortnite
  2. Enter the Battle Royale lobby screen but change the playlist to Party Royale
  3. Search for a game and wait
  4. Once inside, head over to the Main Stage area on the east of the island and enjoy!

Obviously, you won’t be able to drop in and watch the show until the date and time that Epic has revealed, so don’t try and get involved too early. 

If you manage to get in, though, make sure to enjoy it and get involved with the party.
