FaZe pro duo Tfue and Cloakzy have won the Grand Finals of the Fortnite Fall Skirmish at TwitchCon.

Pate1k and Domentos won the first match in conservative fashion. Pate1k simply sat up high on a campfire, healing himself. Down below Cloakzy was battling off a number of duos as the circle closed in. The Storm picked up the final kill for Pate1k when the circle closed in completely.

Tfue was knocked out early but Cloakzy picked up six eliminations on his own to carry his team. The FaZe duo topped the scoreboard after one match thanks to their second place finish plus the elimination bonus.

Match two was another slow affair and 60 players were still alive in a tiny end game circle. But the congestion and Storm damage finally got things going.

This time it was Pate1k’s partner Domentos that grabbed the Victory Royale with a shotgun elimination for back to back wins.

After two matches, Domentos and Pate1k were tied for first overall with Cloakzy and Tfue in a demonstration of elimination vs placement value.

Three in a row for the Europeans would not happen as Tfue and Cloakzy picked up their first Victory Royale in match 3.

Tfue and Cloakzy sat in a comfortable lead after three matches thanks to their 17 total eliminations.

Match 4 was a slog as most of the players focused on placements over eliminations. The final battles hardly featured any gun play at all as the Storm was the most effective damage dealer.

The Liquid pro duo of Chap and 72 Hrs were one of the few teams to come to life, jumping from near the bottom to top 10 after a four point match.

The controller players NICKMERCS and Ghost Aydan brought the crowd to their feet in match 5, showing rarely seen early aggression. They picked up a whopping nine eliminations despite only placing top 20.

The Storm picked up the final kill again in match 5, with Hero Ronin and JDW winning after managing to outlast a player who built a campfire some distance outside of the circle.

Tfue and Cloakzy headed into match 6 still leading overall thanks to lower scoring teams winning the fourth and fifth matches. The rest of the field needed to pick up eliminations early and often to close the gap.

The added pressure made for a more exciting match as eliminations and battles were happening more often. Zexrow and vinny1x had a monster performance, getting the Victory Royale to go with 8 eliminations for a 7 point game.

But it was not enough to take down Tfue and Cloakzy, who’s performance in the first three matches was too much to overcome. Cloakzy was the player of the tournament, finishing with 22 eliminations himself. Cloakzy on his own had more eliminations than 46 teams in the Grand Final.

Fortnite Crew explained: Battle Pass skin packs, V-Bucks, price & more

Starting with Chapter 2 Season 5, Fortnite will have a brand new subscription service titled Fortnite Crew, which aims to bring a slew of different features that players love, wrapped up into one nice little package. Here’s everything you need to know. 

Season 4 of Fortnite is rapidly coming to an end. The Marvel-themed season has been around for a few months now and in December it will be replaced by Season 5. While we don’t know the full extent of the new season, we do know that it’s set to introduce a brand new service called Fortnite Crew.

This subscription-based model, which is a first for Fortnite, is set to introduce a brand new way to get the battle pass each season, while at the same time earning some free goodies to sink your teeth into. But how does it work, how much does it cost, and what does it include? Here’s the breakdown.

Fortnite Crew contents

The most attractive inclusion in this new subscription service is that of the battle pass. Each month, you’ll get the premium version of the battle pass at no extra cost to you, so long as you’re subscribed to Fortnite Crew.

Beyond that, however, you’ll also receive a number of different items beyond the premium battle pass. You’ll also receive 1000 v-bucks and an exclusive Fortnite Crew Pack, which in-and-of-itself includes a skin and a “matching accessory”.

Fortnite Crew cost

According to Epic, the Fortnite Crew subscription service will cost players $11.99 a month. This price makes the service an objectively good deal, as a normal battle pass costs 950 V-bucks, which costs around $8.

So for a few extra bucks from the standard price of a battle pass, you’re getting 1000 extra V-bucks, an exclusive skin pack, and the battle pass itself.

How to subscribe to Fortnite Crew

Epic Games
Players will be able to purchase the Fortnite Crew subscription from the Item Shop when it launches in December.

Subscribing to Fortnite Crew is, apparently, quick and easy. All you have to do is click the icons found in the Fortnite Item Shop or on the battle pass screen, meaning it doesn’t seem like players will have to jump through a bunch of hoops in order to get access to the service.

In addition, Epic Games also confirmed that fans will be able to cancel their subscription at any time. Presumably, fans will be able to keep all of the items they unlocked through the service up until that point, considering they would have already paid for that month.
