BoomTV’s latest Code Red Fortnite tournament has come to a close with compLexity Gaming pro players Michael ‘Hogman’ Hogman and Mack ‘MackWood’ Aesoph finishing in first place.

This week’s Code Red Fortnite tournament was played on February 22 and featured some of the biggest names in competitive Fortnite battling it out for a share of the $10,000 prize pool.

Prior to reading up on the results, make sure to take a look through the ‘Format and Rules’ section below, as this week’s tournament featured a brand new format in place of its usual ‘total of two kill races.’ 

RESULTS

Seeing as the field of competitors in the Code Red tournament was full of some of the most successful players in competitive, such as NICKMERCS, Vivid, NateHill, and others, it came as a slight surprise at how dominant the compLexity Duo were in winning this event.

Hogman and Mackwood were more than impressive coming out the gates, finishing the first of six matches with 11 eliminations and the Victory, earning 18 points.

CompLexity captain Hogman, and his org-mate Mackwood, dominated the tournament from start to finish.

They stagnated a bit in rounds two and three before ripping off 13 eliminations and another Victory Royale in round four, climbing all the way to 38 points. Round five saw them pile on another eight points and a match victory, entering the final round with 53 points, 23 more than the second place team.

Their final point tally was at 56, more than good enough to secure the $5,000 first place prize as it was a whopping 32 more than the 24 points than the second-place Duo of Ghost Gaming’s Innocents and Assault got, who themselves took home $2,500.

The rest of the top-five was rounded off with Ghost’s Saf and NRG Esports’ Zayt getting 23 points for third place, ThreshFPS and InspyreFN coming in fourth with 17 points, and Arckite and TopGun’s 14 points good for fifth.

FORMAT AND RULES

Taking advantage of the new custom matchmaking that has been made available in Fortnite, Code Red have steered way from their traditional “total of two kill race” format in favor of a new system.

This new format featured 45 Duos playing six matches against each other on a custom server, three on NA-West and three on NA-East.

The scoring system was based on both match placements and elimination totals:

  • Victory Royale: 3 Points
  • 2nd-3rd Place: 2 Points
  • 4th-5th Place: 1 Point
  • 6 Eliminations: 10 Points

Big Bonus: After 6 Eliminations, 1 Point will be added to each elimination.

The above is the total amount of points the Duo received. Example:

  • 4-5th with no Elims = 1 Point
  • 4-5th with 6 Elims = 11 Points


PLAYERS AND TEAMS

This week’s Code Red tournament featured 45 total Duos, about half of them consisting of pro players and content creators and the other half of players who qualified via the online qualifiers.

Some of the prominent Duos include 100 Thieves’ NICKMERCS and Kenith, Ghost Gaming’s Aydan and FaZe Clan’s Thiefs, Team Liquid’s Vivid and Chap, Team SoloMid’s Myth and Clouds, and many others.

The full list of players and Duos has been provided below, along with a link to their Twitch or YouTube livestream.

Has LazarBeam quit Fortnite?

Fans of YouTube star Lannan ‘LazarBeam’ Eacott have been questioning whether or not he’s quit playing Fortnite after not uploading a gameplay video in a good while. 

The original rise of Fortnite saw creators from across the globe explode in popularity regardless of whether they were focused on livestreaming on Twitch or making videos for YouTube.

However, some of the original big names like Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, and Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff, among others, have turned away from Fortnite and decided to play games like Valorant and Warzone. 

Plenty of creators still remain, though, they have issues with a lack of updates, and how the competitive scene is being run, to name just a few problems. Now, fans of LazarBeam have been asking if he is following the likes of Ninja and Tfue, and walking away from Fortnite. 

Lazarbeam is one of the most popular Australian creators around.

Did LazarBeam quit Fortnite?

Even though his fellow Aussies like Fresh, Lachlan, and LoserFruit have carried on playing Fortnite, LazarBeam hasn’t uploaded a YouTube video about it since mid-December. Though, he has tweeted about it and played the battle royale since.

In that time of not uploading a Fortnite video, he’s made videos on Among Us and Spellbreak, while also uploading his usual meme reactions from TikTok, as well as a more personal video reflecting on how 2020 went for him. 

In a recent stream though, he did say he was quitting the game after uninstalling. “I’ve decided to uninstall Fortnite. I’ve quit the game. I’m quitting it right now,” LazarBeam said. “I’m done forever.” Though, it’s hard to say if he’s being totally serious, given that he is one of YouTube’s funniest creators.

Will LazarBeam return to Fortnite?

It could be the case that he returns to Epic Games’ battle royale soon, perhaps once a new update is released. 

Other content creators have done similar, taking breaks because the devs aren’t rolling out as many regular updates as they used to, and the game feels a bit stale. But, we’ll just have to wait and see if that’s the case for LazarBeam whenever v15.30 launches.
