The First Ever KEEMSTAR ‘Saturday Fortnite’ $5,000 Tournament Was a Huge Success – Recap and Final Placements

Albert Petrosyan

Up-and-coming Fortnite starts Kenneth ‘Baldy’ and Dade ‘Dramas’ have won the first ever KEEMSTAR ‘Saturday Fortnite’ tournament on June 2nd.

The pair beat out ‘GODaZed’ and ‘vvpunisher’ in a swift, one-game Grand Final to take home the whopping $5,000 first place prize.

‘Saturday Fortnite’ is a brand new competition organized by popular YouTuber Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem and online tournament host website UMG.

Formatted very similarly to KEEMSTAR’s well-known and popular weekly tournament called ‘Friday Fortnite,’ the Saturday version focuses on smaller content creators and streamers, giving them a chance to display their Fortnite talents in a competitive setting.

Having swept through the Winners Bracket without a loss, Baldy and Dramas came into the Grand Final needing to win one match to secure the championship, whereas their opponents, who were coming from the Losers Bracket, would have to win two.

However, things did not need to go that far as the eventual champions easily took care of business in the first and only match, winning by a kill margin that was not close.

Not only did the two winning players take home $2,500 each, they also won an exclusive invitation to participate in the next running of ‘Friday Fortnite,’ which features some of the biggest names in the online gaming and content creation industries.

Because they will be playing in that competition on Friday, June 8th, it is not yet clear whether Baldy and Dramas will be allowed to defend their title in next week’s ‘Saturday Fortnite’, which will be held on the 9th. 

Here are the final placements for the first ever ‘Saturday Fortnite,’ along with the finalized bracket of the entire tournament.
