Day One of the Fortnite ‘Summer Skirmish’ $500K Week 6 Duos tournament has all wrapped up for both the European and North American regions.

After one day of play, with both regions playing five games each, the NA standings are being led by ‘Nate Hill’ and ‘FunkBomb’, with ‘Solary Kinstaar’ and ‘lunary jbzzed’ topping the EU leaderboard.

Before reading the rest of the recap, make sure to brush up on the scoring format for this week’s competition, which was the same as Week 5:


The team with the most points at the end of eight matches wins. Eliminations earn players points towards placement at the end of the event. Earning a Victory Royale will provide a team with a 3x Elimination bonus in the next match.

Elimination: +1 Point
Victory Royale: 3x Elimination Bonus Next Match
7+ Eliminations: 2x Elimination Bonus Next Match

The one major difference between this week’s format and last week’s is the prize breakdown. In Week 5, the prizes were awarded to players after the completion of the tournament, whereas Week 6’s prizes are awarded after each of the five matches.

Here are how the prizes will be broken down on a per match basis:

NA Recap

Thanks to getting Victory Royales in the first two matches of the NA tournament, competitive Fortnite players Nate Hill and FunkBomb were able accrue 34 points, eight more than the second place team.

The 3x elimination bonus came really into play in Match 2, where they got a whopping 21 points.

The masters of consistency ‘Not_The_Fox’ and FaZe pro player ‘Tennp0’ got 26 points to claim second place, despite not getting any Victory Royales or 2x elimination bonuses.

In third place came 100 Thieves’ NICKMERCS and Luminosity Gaming’s SypherPK, who also managed to get 26 points. While they also did not get any match wins, they were able to take advantage of some bonus points, thanks to plays like this.

During the fifth and final match, there were severe lag and server issues, which led to Epic ending the match prematurely and granting victories to the teams that were still alive at the time.

EU Recap

Solary Kinstaar and lunary jbzzed were able to use their victory in Game 2 to boost their point total, finishing with 32 to claim first place after Day One.

In second place were Fnatic_Eryc and Tommo, who displayed extreme consistency as they managed to get 30 points without winning a single match.

In third place were ‘Amarcod’ and ‘a1ms0nz’, who racked most of their points in their victory performances in both Games 3 and 5.

The Fortnite Summer Skirmish is an 8-week series of competitions where Epic Games will be awarding a total of $8 million in prize money. The competition features a variety of content creators, popular pro players, and top performers from previous in-game events. 

Since Epic Games have collaborated with Twitch Esports to organize Weeks 6 of the Skirmish, there has been a slight scheduling change, with the EU and NA regions both playing five matches on August 17 and 18.

While most of the players that played on the 17th will also be playing on the 18th, it is not yet clear whether the Day One standings will carry over to Day Two.

TimTheTatman rage quits after finding three fishing rods in Fortnite

Fortnite players know all too well what it’s like to land in a hot spot and struggle to find a weapon, including TimTheTatMan, who hilariously rage quit after he found nothing but fishing rods.

Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar has jumped back on the Fortnite bandwagon in Season 5. The latest update has brought a lot of old stars back, and for the most part, the reception has been positive.

In Tim’s case though, it hasn’t been all sunshine and roses. He wanted to enjoy everything the new season has to offer. Instead, all he got was fishing rods and lots of them.

TimTheTatman is a talented gamer in his own right, but he’s also hilarious to watch.

TimTheTatman descended onto Salty Towers with his squad, looking for an ideal place to land. Unfortunately, the two vacant rooftops he saw both had fishing rods. “Oh good, a fishing pole, oh good, another fishing pole, okay,”  he said.

He decided to land on a house instead. “If I come in here and there’s a fishing pole, I’m leaving,” he said while breaking into the attic with his pickaxe. “I’m literally not kidding. I’m backing out if there’s a fishing pole in here.”

Fortunately, there wasn’t one in the attic, but there was nothing else either, so he dove a little deeper. He dropped down the staircase, turned left it into the kitchen, and hilariously found another fishing rod staring into his soul.

It’s not ideal to find a fishing rod as your first weapon in Fortnite.

Without saying a word, TimTheTatman opened up the menu, quit the game, and placed his hands on his head in disbelief. “I’m not doing it,” he said, as he struggled to find the words to sum up his rage.

“The two guns I was going to land on [were] fishing poles,” he added. “I open up a door and go left, fishing pole. I’ll try again. When you guys are done, I’ll be ready to go again. I’m not going to play that game. I’m not going to do it.”

There’s nothing worse than landing in a spot surrounded by enemies and finding nothing useful.

Still, TimTheTatman’s fans were rolling on the floor laughing after seeing him get so riled up about it. Plus, the fact it happened to be a fishing rod made it even funnier.
