One of the greatest things about the weekly Friday Fortnite celebrity tournament, is that it offers the potential for great matchups between some of the biggest names in the online gaming community.

That is exactly what happened during Week 7 of the competition, which was played on June 22nd, as popular Twitch streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Cloud9 pro Fortnite player Jacob ‘Hysteria’ Reiser faced off against the Team SoloMid pro player duo of Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani’ and ‘Hamlinz.’

While they all are great in their own rite, everyone’s attention was on Ninja vs Myth, as the two are not only very good friends, but also two of the greatest Fortnite competitors in the world.

What made things even more interesting was the fact that this epic matchup occurred in the seventh round of the Losers Bracket, putting the ‘win or go home’ pressure on all of the players’ shoulders.

The matches were as exhilarating as one would expect, but there had to be a winner and Myth and Hamlinz were able to clutch the victory and send Ninja and Hysteria packing. 

Afterwards, Ninja posted a video expressing his reaction to losing the match and also mentioning that he would like to play with Hysteria again in next week’s competition.

“[…] Hysteria, love you man GG’s. Almost had it. Myth and Hamz [Hamlinz], hate you guys, just kidding I love you. You guys are on, good job in Losers, take it home. Dude these Fortnite Fridays are amazing man. I’m just pumped for next week, I’m probably using Hysteria again.”

Hysteria, who was playing in his very first Friday Fortnite, also posted his reaction, although he did it via a written tweet rather than a video.

Huge Fortnite Season 5 leaks have revealed the next major update will be a crossover with Star Wars and The Mandalorian, featuring Baby Yoda. 

The update is expected to land at the end of November, with Epic Games continuing their relationship with Disney. Previous seasons have been all about Marvel, and following on from the success of The Mandalorian Season 2, it looks like the game is set to strike while the iron is hot on the hype.

On November 24, within the week the patch is expected to roll out, leakers ShiinaBR and others are reporting the crossover is imminent.

First of all, the dataminer tweeted: “So the next Battle Pass is Star Wars themed?? Both the Mandalorian and Baby Yoda will be a part of it!”

This very quickly caught the attention of fans, before later posting a leaked image of the Battle Pass advertising.

As seen below, there is an image of Fortnite skins – spearheaded by the Mandalorian – and to his side you can see little Baby Yoda, which will presumably be a Back Bling in the next major update.
