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

GotagaTV and Mickalow_ took home the most earnings for the EU side of Day Two, while KingRichards and GhostDmo put up a gaudy 52 points to run away with the NA side.

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.

Summer Skirmish Week 6 European Top Earners

Surprisingly, GotagaTV and Mickalow_ took home the top spot despite failing to win a single match. Their consistent performances were enough to edge out the second place Fnatic_Eryc and Tommo. 

Fnatic_Eric an Tommo had more kills with 30 compared to GotagaTV and Mickalow’s 27, but it was not enough to earn the most prize money for the weekend,

KingRichard and GhostDmo ran away with the NA standings, finishing twenty points clear of second place DisguisedToast1 and NotVivid.

Much like the EU top earners however, KingRichard and GhostDmo did not win any of the five matches. DisguisedToast1 and NotVivid also failed to secure a Victory Royale, thought third place earners FaZe Thiefs and LiquidChap won one.

Fortnite Summer Skirmish Week 6 Results

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 four tournaments, two per day, instead of the usual schedule of two over a weekend.

Epic and Twitch are collaborating again for Week 7 of the Summer Skirmish, so you can expect a similar schedule for next week’s edition.

Fortnite World Cup winner Aqua allegedly banned for FNCS stream-sniping

Fortnite World Cup champion and Season 4 FNCS competitor, David ‘aqua’ Wang has been accused of stream-sniping and subsequently been punished by an alleged ban by Epic Games.

At 17 years old, aqua represented his home country of Austria to the fullest by winning the 2019 Fortnite World Cup’s Duos event with Norway’s Emil ‘Nyhrox’ Bergquist. With a smooth $1.5 million earned from the World Cup, he’s since signed with Cooler Esport and continued to win competitions across Europe.

Most recently, aqua’s trio (with Rezon and Noahreyli) have been participating in FNCS Europe and, following the Week 3 semis, have been accused of stream-sniping another popular trio: Benjy ‘Benjyfishy’ Fish, Martin ‘MrSavage’ Andersen, and Kevin ‘LeTsHe’ Fedjuschkin.

Although fans initially deemed aqua’s behavior suspicious, things quickly escalated. With Benjyfishy’s team unable to qualify for the Week 3 finals and the discovery that aqua was watching MrSavage’s stream during the competition, the controversy has spiraled.

Following condemnations of the World Cup winner’s team, rumors began circulating that aqua, Rezon, and Noahreyli had been banned by Epic Games from participating past the first match of the Finals. 

Although many fans were delighted to hear the news, it was never officially legitimized and has since been made even more unclear by responses from some of the involved parties.

After the rumor mill buzzed with the reports that aqua’s team was banned from competing, he took to Twitter and gave a concise clarification denying those allegations: “We are not banned, we just don’t wanna play. It’s boring without early fighting Benjy.”

Given the difficulty inherent to confirming someone was in fact stream-sniping and didn’t coincidentally run into a fellow streamer, many believe it is unlikely that the World Cup winner has actually been exiled from the competition.

Additionally, some have noted that bans typically result in removal from the leaderboard, something that aqua’s team has not been hit with.

 

As for how the players are handling it, aqua and Benjyfishy have simply joked about the incident for hours. Neither side appears to be nearly as angry as some fans have been, instead, laughing at the drama and sharing memes.

 

While whatever’s going on behind the scenes may remain unclear, all players involved are more than good enough to qualify for the Season 4 FNCS Finals at some point, if they haven’t already, so it seems that no one’s really that bothered by the situation, ban or no ban.

We will continue to update this article with more details as they become available.
