Twitch K1nzell and Atlantis Mitr0 have won the $500K Fortnite ‘Summer Skirmish’ Week Five tournament, securing the $75,000 grand prize.

The duo outlasted the field over eight matches, finishing ahead of TwitchKejser and Octagon Sevrin in second thanks to a tiebreaker, with Xypher TesquotTV and Xyhper Sanfuu finishing in third.

Before reading the rest of the recap, make sure to brush up on the scoring format for this week’s competition:

King Pin

Teams will be ranked on a Contest Leaderboard based on their current points. Victory Royales and Eliminations in this competition will be scored to determine placement, score, and multipliers during the event. The top 20 players at the end of the 8 games will be awarded. In the case of a tie, players will be scored on a tiebreaker system.

Teams will be ranked on the Leaderboard based on the following scoring system:

VICTORY ROYALE: X3 MULTIPLIER TO NEXT GAME’S POINTS*

7+ ELIMINATIONS: X2 MULTIPLIER TO NEXT GAME’S POINTS*

ELIMINATIONS: 1 POINT EACH

* These multipliers do not stack and only last for the next game. For example, an 8 elimination game with a victory royale would only grant a x3 multiplier to points for next game, not a x5 multiplier for next game.

It was tight at the top after six played matches, with Mitr0 and K1nzell holding a 3 point lead over Snafuu and TesquotTV, 38-35. Svennoss and Tinny were in a distant thrid, however they had the double wrecking ball bonus for the 7th match. Hoopek and Sk1x were in 11th at just 15 points, but held the Kingpin bonus for the 7th match.

Hoopek and Sk1x took full advantage and had a four kill game 7 to rocket up the leaderboards to third place, while Svennoss and Tinny could not capitalize on their bonus, earning just a single kill. The top two places stayed the same however, with Mitr0 and K1nzell earning four kills to get up to 42 points and Snafuu and TesquotTV got three for 38.

Mitr0 an K1nzell did just enough to hold on, picking up two kills and outlasting Snafuu and TesquotTV – who were eliminated with 30 players remaining- in the eight match. Kejser and Sevrin were nowhere to be found on the leaderboards for most of the day, but monster performances in games seven and eight launched them up to second place.

It is the second Summer Skirmish victory for Atlantis Mitr0, who won the Week Three duos tournament with Atlantis Magin.

K1nzell and Mitr0 finished the day with two Victory Royales on their way to first overall and the $75,000 prize, winning the first and fourth matches.

Epic Games have confirmed that a Fortnitemares Afterlife Party event with J Balvin is set to rock the Main Stage in Party Royale. Here’s what you need to know.

Over the years, as Fortnite has grown more and more in popularity, Epic Games have teamed up with TV shows, movies, and musicians for a number of live events. 

This has included everything from something as simple as a DJ playing a few songs from their living room to showing off new trailer for a Star Wars movie. Though, it’s stretched all the way to Travis Scott having a jaw-dropping concert live event too. 

With Fortnitemares now being live, the next event will involve Colombian artist J Balvin debuting a new song during an ‘Afterlife’ concert. So, here’s everything you need to know. 

What time is the J Balvin event in Fortnite?

Just like a number of other events in Fortnite, there will be an initial showing before a number of encore shows so that everyone has the chance to get involved. 

The initial J Balvin show will get underway on Saturday, October 31st at 9 pm EDT/1 am GMT/6 pm PDT and 2 am CEST. Though, if you miss the live showing, there will be two other showings.

The first replay, according to Epic, will happen a day later on Sunday, November 1st at a much reasonable time for European fans – 1 pm EDT/6 pm BST/10 am PDT and 7 pm CEST. The second replay will be five hours later on the same day. 

How to get J Balvin Party Trooper Fortnite skin

While these events have, sometimes, given all players free rewards, the J Balvin event will be a little different. 

Instead, anyone who owns the Party Trooper skin that attends the Afterlife Party will unlock an exclusive J Balvin style. However, you don’t have to wear the skin to the event to unlock it, you just have to own it.

Where to find the J Balvin event in Fortnite

If you want to watch the event, as we’ve already noted, it’ll happen inside Party Royale. That’s slightly different to the usual Battle Royale and Creative modes. 

To access it, you’ll want to select the Party Royale game mode in the lobby screen and then search when the event goes live in the menus. Be sure to get in early for the live showing as you don’t want to miss out!

  1. Load up Fortnite
  2. Enter the Battle Royale lobby screen but change the playlist to Party Royale
  3. Search for a game and wait
  4. Once inside, head over to the Main Stage area on the east of the island and enjoy!

The Main Stage is where you’ll be able to find the Fortnite music events.

Obviously, you won’t be able to drop in and watch the show until the date and time that Epic has revealed, so don’t try and get involved too early. 

If you manage to get in, though, make sure to enjoy it and get involved with the party.
