The recent addition of Noah ‘Vivid’ Wright to Team Liquid’s pro Fortnite team has led to some necessary roster realignment for the organization.

Vivid has been placed directly in the main squad, joining players 72hrs, Poach, and Chap, with Strafesh0t having now been relegated to a different role within the team.

In a video released on August 30, co-CEO and co-owner Steve Arhancet explained the thought process that went behind making this decision.

“A lot of the community sentiment so far has been like ‘oh he’s benched, he’s not on the team.’ I just want to clear that up. We approached Strafesh0t and said ‘hey look, if there are squad events […] then we’re going to go with the most competitive roster that we can and that may not include you.'”

However, Arhancet did emphasize that Strafesh0t was still very much part of the overall scheme of things, even if he wasn’t on the main squad, although the door is always open for him to pursue better opportunities should he receive offers from other orgs.

“‘But, if you want to continue being part of Team Liquid as an organization, we’re here to support you man. We made an agreement on a contract that if you’re putting in everything that you can and we’re going to be here for you.’ He will continue with Team Liquid, he has the opportunity to go chase other offers and other teams. […] W’re going to stay fluid, so like what events may come in the future and he’s also interested in maybe going into a coaching role.”

Regardless of how the roster gets aligned moving forward, few can deny that the addition of Vivid has strengthened the squad considerably.

The players have already proven they can find success with their new teammate as several of them have teamed with him and placed well in past Summer Skirmish tournaments.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.

Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.

To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.
