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:

KINGPIN:

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.

Individual NA Match Results


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.

How to compete in Fortnite’s first Box Fight Tournament: date, prizes

Fortnite is about to launch its first-ever Box Fight Tournament, a creative 1v1 competition in an arena designed by winners of last month’s Princess Castle Creative Contest. If you’re interested in competing, here’s everything you need to know.

Fortnite is a competitive game at heart, but it’s also a wonderful platform for creative players. It’s the reason why the creative mode is so popular. Players can build their own islands and share them with others.

Last month, Fortnite celebrated its third birthday by hosting the Princess Castle Creative Contest. Essentially, players had to create and submit their own version of a Box Fight map.

For those who don’t know, Box Fighting is when two players are fighting within one tile of each other and inside a box. It’s unique in the sense that it combines competitive and creative skills.

Two players named HassanFTN and Shride won the contest. Their arena, named “Island of Dreams” (9005-6737-3429), was chosen to be showcased in the first official Box Fight Tournament.

The map used in the Box Fight Tournament was created by two winners of the Princess Castle Creative Contest.

How to compete in the Box Fight Tournament

To compete in the Box Fight Tournament, all you need to do is look for the Box Fight Tournament LTM on the main menu once it’s available.

However, there is an eligibility requirement. Players will need to have reached Open League (Division II) in Arena before the tournament begins. Don’t stress if you haven’t though. It’s very easy to do and will only take a couple of games.

The format is pretty straightforward. Players will duke it out in a one on one Box Fight against other players in their region.

It will follow a traditional tournament structure with multiple rounds. The more rounds you win, the higher you will climb. The player with the most wins at the end of the tournament is the winner.

Unfortunately, there hasn’t been any news on potential prizes yet. However, it will probably follow a similar system used in Wild Wednesdays. Keep in mind that these aren’t final, and they will be updated once more information is available.

Box Fighting requires calculated attacks and solid defense.

When does the Box Fight Tournament start?

Fortnite players don’t need to wait long. The Box Fight Tournament begins on Wednesday, October 28, which means it’s only one sleep away.

However, that also means if you haven’t ranked up enough in Arena to be eligible, you’ll need to hop in and get started before it’s too late.

Box Fighting is an important skill in Fortnite. In many ways, it’s what separates the wolves from the sheep.

If you’ve mastered it, the tournament is a good way to test your skills. Don’t be disheartened if you haven’t though. Taking part in the tournament is a good way to improve.
