Two of the world’s best Fortnite players, FaZe Clan’s Tfue and TSM’s Myth, showed the true beauty of the new Playground LTM with an absolutely ridiculous building battle.

After a shaky start that saw it disabled for a number of days, Playground Mode is up and running in Fortnite Battle Royale and it’s just as good as everyone predicted.

The Limited Time Mode is the perfect environment to practice in as materials are significantly easier to come by, friendly fire is enabled so you can play with friends, and respawns are unlimited.

Professional players have certainly been taking advantage of this and have been playing each other in 1 vs. 1 and 2 vs. 2 games with building battles that are nothing short of spectacular.

One of the best battles we’ve seen so far came when TMS’s Myth took on FaZe Clan’s Tfue. With both players being known for their impressive building and editing skills, the end result was always going to be a build fight for the ages.

In the end it was Myth that came out on top of this particular contest as he always seemed to be one step ahead, but the quick thinking and mechanical of both parties is something to be marvelled at:

This is just one of multiple battles that take place in these 1 vs. 1 fights and players often try to use different strategies as they attempt to improve their personal level.

Fans of top streamers have been enjoying these matchups and they are sure to be sorely missed when Playground Mode is eventually disabled.

With the amount of time it took to finally get the Playground working, there is a level of hope within the community that it will stay live for longer than a week, which is the standard time for these Limited Time Modes.

Epic Games have announced more details about the upcoming FNCS tournament for Fortnite Season 5, including some of the Twitch drops players will be able to get their hands on by watching the streams and the schedule of events. 

If you’ve been wondering what incentives you might be getting to watch the upcoming FNCS Season 5 tournament then you’re questions have finally been answered.

With the tournament only a couple days away, Epic has gone ahead and revealed some cool new drops that players will be able to get their hands on during the event, including some sprays, a loading screen, and more, simply by tuning into the tournament on Twitch.

Here’s how you can make sure that you’ll get the rewards.

Fortnite FNCS Season 5 Twitch drops

Epic Games
Epic has unveiled some loot that players will be able to get their hands on during the tournament.

Like most games nowadays, Epic Games is utilizing Twitch drops to give players an incentive to watch the FNCS Season 5 tournament. This means that, if you watch the tournament on various officially-supported streams that have drops enabled, you will be able to earn in-game items for Fortnite.

Some of them are a bit small like an FNCS spray and emoticon, but two of the more significant items is that of a special loading screen which features some of the characters featured in the Season 5 battle pass, as well as a cool, foam finger-style back bling.

All in all, it’s nothing too crazy, but it’s still a nice little reward for watching the tournament.

How to earn Twitch drops

Like any other Twitch drop, players will have to have their Twitch and Epic Games accounts linked before they can start earning their rewards. To do that, you’ll need to follow some simple steps, courtesy of the developers themselves.

  • Go to Epic Game’s official “Connected Accounts” page
  • Sign-in to your Epic Games account
  • Click on the “Connect” button under the Twitch tab
  • Click “Link your Account”
  • Sign-in to your Twitch account at the prompt
  • Select “Authorize”

After that, your Epic account and your Twitch account should be linked together and you’ll be able to earn items on drop-enabled streams. Once you get them, you should see them in a notification at the top of your Twitch page and they should appear in-game soon.

FNCS Season 5 streaming schedule

If you’re wondering the full streamable events, we have you covered. Epic says that they’ll be streaming the most “pivotal” stages of the competition, which only include the final rounds of the qualifiers, as well as the semi-finals and finals.

This means that, while qualifiers themselves will take place from Feb 4-7, Feb 11-14, and Feb 18-21 respectively, the only ones that will be streamed will be the final days on Feb 7, 11, and 21.

The full breakdown of times can be found below:

  • EU Region Broadcast
    • Start time: 1 PM EST
    • EU Live Coverage: 1:15 PM EST
    • Broadcast end: 4:30 PM EST
  • NA Region Broadcast
    • Start time: 5 PM EST
    • NAE Live Coverage: 5:15 PM EST
    • Break: 8:30 PM EST
    • NAW Live Coverage: 9:15 PM EST
    • Broadcast end: 12:20 AM EST

It’s important to remember that you watch either an official stream from Epic Games or a supported stream with drops enabled, otherwise you won’t get all the cool loot.
