Hold the Throne

The first player to reach 8 or more points by the end of the competition wins. Victory Royales and Eliminations in this competition will be scored to determine placement at the end of the event. The player with the most eliminations in a single match will “Hold the throne” and hold a bonus point until dethroned.

  • Victory Royale: +2 Points
  • 2nd and 3rd Place: +1 Point
  • 4 or more Eliminations: +1 Point
  • Hold the Throne (Most Eliminations in a Single Match): +1 Point, $50,000

It was Gentside Thevic who rushed out to an early lead, holding 7 of the 8 required points for victory after only a few matches.

However, those would be the only points scored for Thevic the rest of the day, allowing the field to catch up.

Secret_Domentos was able to take advantage of Gentside Thevic slowing down, passing him and becoming the first to 8 points. Secret_Domentos eliminated BlaxTV in a tense 1v1 to finish off the tournament in match 9. Thevic would finish in second with 6 after losing the Hold the Throne Point, while RWL7 Proximastar finished in third place with 5. BlaxTV would’ve launched up the standings had he won the final 1v1, instead he had to settle for seventh with 4 points.

The $50,000 bonus prize for most eliminations in a single match was split three ways. RWL7 Proximastar, the fifth place VP Jamside and the ninth place OblivionFN TTV all finished tied for the most elims with 7.

Fortnite invisibility glitch lets players cause absolute chaos

Fortnite players have got a new way to go invisible and troll their opponents, and it involves using the Mudflap truck. 

As the Fortnite seasons have unfolded, and Epic Games has added plenty of new content to the battle royale, players have found more and more ways to get an advantage over their opponents – be it legitimately or by using glitches and exploits.

In the past, these glitches have ranged from being able to use whatever skin you want, getting under the map, and being able to carry more items than normally allowed. 

There have also been God Mode and invisibility exploits too. While Epic has been pretty good at rooting those out, even disabling the items that help players use these glitches, there’s a new one they’ll have to get rid of.

The Mudflap truck is central to the new glitch.

The new invisibility glitch was pointed out by YouTuber GlitchKing who showed that it works similar to the invisibility glitch with the boat in seasons past. 

Players have to be knocked at the same time they’re entering a Mudflap truck, and then by doing so, are thrown underneath the truck while knocked. If they’re then picked up a teammate, they are invisible to everyone else in the lobby. 

Sometimes it doesn’t work as intended, obviously, as GlitchKing showed that his friend had attempted it a few times – once being throw under the map and another being eliminated altogether.

Obviously, when players are invisible, it’s impossible to get a read on their position. As GlitchKing demonstrated, he was able to cause havoc by damaging enemies who were clueless as to where he was. Though, he did give the game away by picking up knocked enemies.

Given that the glitch revolves around the Mudflap, Epic might have to disable the vehicle while they get things figured out, but as of writing, the problem hasn’t made its way to their Trello board so it remains to be seen as to whether or not they’re aware of it.
