Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani has shared his thoughts on the Fortnite Summer Skirmish invites after there was some confusion about the selection process.

The TSM star believes that the weekly $250,000 tournaments are all part of Epic Games’ “master plan” as the game developer tries to figure out how the competitive scene will work.

It came as somewhat of a surprise when the first Summer Skirmish lineup was announced and numerous high profile names were not included on the list, but Myth thinks that each week is a test for potential qualifier tournaments in the future.

“It makes a lot of sense for them not to invite every single pro to these events, or every single streamer to these events, simply because they want to see how exactly qualifiers are going to go down.”

With Epic announcing an incredible $100,000,000 for competitive Fortnite in the 2018 – 2019 season, some major events that involve open qualification stages are bound to appear in the near future.

The vast majority of Fortnite tournaments that fans have been able to tune into so far have been invite only and featured all of the biggest streaming personalities and best professional players.

However, with competitive Fortnite still being in its infancy, open events with a huge prize pool will be a massive opportunity for unknown players to break out and make a name for themselves.

With all of this in mind, Myth explains that he does not expect to be invited to ever Summer Skirmish event, and that nobody else should either:

“I don’t actually expect to get invited every weekend, and I understand if I’m not invited every weekend. And I think that it’s important that not everybody is invited every weekend, because they need to see how Fortnite plays out under different controlled environments”

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.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
