The star-studded Chipotle Challenger Series made its return in spectacular fashion as some of the world’s most popular streamers went head to head against veteran Fortnite professionals on October 1.

While the last iteration of the Chipotle Challenger Series focused on frenetic Warzone action, the competition pivoted to Fortnite for this latest installment. The last competition took place on July 16 and many of the top content creators had been raring to go again ever since.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the top team at the end of the event was stacked with three proven competitors. Furious, Ronaldo, and illest all have multiple tournament wins to their names, and now they’ve added another thanks to their efforts here.

A rundown on the structure of the latest Chipotle Challenger Series event.

To kick things off, there were four qualifiers that teams had to fight in to secure a place in the finale. As with most other battle royale competitions, a point system was in effect throughout these qualifying rounds. Over the course of three hours, teams battled it out while tallying as many kills as possible.

The final round of action was up next as the top four teams from each qualifying round made it through. Joining them were 17 invited teams of popular content creators and pros. This finale featured five back to back games with only the three most successful Trios placing in the money.

HenryG explains Cloud9’s CSGO player salaries after $400k floppy deal

Cloud9 have now confirmed that Ricky ‘floppy’ Kemery is the fourth player of their self-proclaimed CS:GO “colossus” roster, in a deal worth over $400,000, bringing their total to around $4 million in player contracts, with another two players still to go.

Floppy joined Cloud9 from ATK in January, and is now transitioning to the new ‘colossus’ roster alongside ALEX, mezii, and woxic.

The colossus began with the signing of ALEX from Vitality, whose deal is worth $1.65 million. He was joined by fellow brit Mezii on a $426,000 deal. Then, woxic was added from mousesports, in another deal surpassing the $1m mark, at $1,365,000.

This latest deal for floppy takes the total value of this 4-man squad to $3.87 million, and with two players to go (GM Henry  ‘HenryG’ Greer has plans for a six-player roster), is set to surpass the $4 million mark.

Since HenryG’s move from casting into a management role at C9, he has aimed to shake-up the traditionally opaque nature of esports transfer dealings.

In each of the four signings, Greer has confirmed the length of the player’s contract, and it’s total value over that period. All four players announced so far have been signed to three-year deals.

After the floppy announcement, Greer clarified on Twitter that despite the lower total value of deals for floppy and Mezii (compared to ALEX and woxic), each player’s deal is negotiated on an individual basis.

“Ricky has received a pay increase from his previous contract and that will be reviewed each year of his stay,” he concludes.

Presumably, salaries could increase based on performance metrics or other value added to the brand by the player, or as thanks for loyalty to the team.

After he was confirmed as the GM of Cloud9, Greer told Dexerto: “My plans for this team are certainly ambitious. I wouldn’t be involved in any sort of General Manager role unless I had absolute full control of the roster and direction we plan to head.

HenryG is now at the helm of Cloud9’s CS:GO venture.

“C9 have entrusted me with their entire CS:GO dynasty and, honestly, I think that’s one of the boldest moves any org has made in a long time.”

HenryG and Cloud9’s new approach to player deals could very well set off a new trend in CS:GO and esports generally, though for now, they remain on solitary ground.
