Popular YouTuber Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem confirmed that ‘Friday Fortnite’ would be making a sensational return – the full list of participants has now been released.
The ‘DramaAlert’ host was quick to cover the recent drama between FaZe Clan and Fortnite Battle Royale star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney with Tfue deciding to pursue a lawsuit against the organization over an “oppressive contract”.
FaZe co-owner Ricky ‘Banks’ Banks was quick to refute the claims and, as a show of good faith, FaZe offered up the amount they made from Tfue as a prize pool for Friday Fortnite – which had been discontinued for over a year – taking place on May 31.
The full list of participants has now been revealed including Twitch superstar Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and his duo partner Malachi ‘Reverse2k’ Greiner - who will face the winner of a qualifying tournament aimed to provide a smaller streamer with the chance to gain some popularity.
Should Ninja advance past his first matchup, he could face popular rapper Daystar ‘Tory Lanez’ Peterson in a later round if they can navigate a tricky match up against Ghost Gaming's controller duo Issa 'Issa' Rahim and Liam 'Kamo' Fillery.
YouTube sensation Jimmy 'Mr Beast' Donaldson will also take part in the event but faces a difficult first-round game against Twitch streamers Sypher ‘SypherPK’ Ali and Jimmy ‘HighDistortion’ - two players known for their skills on the battlefield.
The tournament also sees the return of fan favorites Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff and Ghost Gaming’s Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad who could meet each other later in the tournament to recreate some of their famous battles at the recently renovated Neo Tilted.
100 Thieves star Rachel 'Valkyrae' Hofsetter partners with Team SoloMid's Maria 'Chica' Lopez but face a baptism of fire in the tournament, squaring up against World Cup qualified FaZe Clan duo Danny 'Dubs' Walsh and 'Megga'.
Other competitors including Team Secret’s Kyle ‘Mongraal’ Jackson who partners with regular duo partner Team Atlantis' Dmitri 'Mitr0' Van de Vrie – two players who considered among the very best in the EU region.
The full list of participants and tournament bracket can be found below.
Keem stated due to so many content creators looking to grab a spot in the tournament, the bracket would be extended to 32 teams and also revealed that one lucky viewer of Friday Fortnite would be given $10,000 as a thank you.
Keep an eye on Dexerto for any further developments if more participants are announced at a later date.
