Defending champion ‘NotVivid’ and Team Liquid pro player ‘Poach’ have won the $500K Fortnite ‘Summer Skirmish’ Week Five tournament, securing the $75,000 grand prize.

The pair finished out on top of the standings after eight matches, with Ghost Gaming’s ‘Dmo’ and ‘Bizzle’ coming in second, followed by their Ghost roster teammates ‘Saf’ and ‘Ghoul.’


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.


With NotVivid and Poach placing first and second in the Week Four tournament respectively, their decision to team up this week immediately made them one of the heavy favorites.

That proved to be for good measure as the pair played consistently well throughout, accumulating 50 points. 

Their victory in Match 5 gave them a 3x Elimination Bonus for Match 6, allowing them to double their overall score and build a strong lead atop the standings.

Ghost Gaming pro duo Dmo and Bizzle came in second place with 36 points, but an astonishing 24 of them came in the eighth and final match thanks to the 3x Elimination Bonus they had earned by winning Match 7.

That dropped their Ghost peers Saf and Ghoul down to third with 34 points. Coming into the final match, Saf and Ghoul had been in second place thanks to their victory in Match 2, which gave them a 3x Bonus for Match Three.

Popular YouTuber Lachlan Power is the next Fortnite star to be added to the game, and Epic Games have now confirmed just when the upcoming Icon Series skin will be available. Here’s what you need to know.

Since Fortnite first exploded in popularity in 2017, there have been a few streamers and YouTubers who have become known for creating content around the game and bringing the battle royale title to the next level.

Epic previously announced that they would be rewarding some of these stars with their very own in-game skins bundles, and among the few confirmed was Australian YouTuber Lachlan Power.

When will Lachlan’s Icon Series skin be released?

With the likes of Ninja and fellow Aussie Loserfruit being first to receive skins in the Icon Series, Lachlan is now next in line to receive these new cosmetics.

In their latest blog post, Epic Games confirmed that Lachlan’s Icon Series set will arrive in the Fortnite item shop on November 12 at 4PM PT/ 7PM ET/ 11PM GMT/ 9AM AEST.

“Lachlan is the third creator to join the Icon Series from among the Fortnite community, following streamers Ninja and Loserfruit.” they announced, before confirming the next creator to be added, “Entering the Icon Series next will be Spanish creator TheGrefg.”

Lachlan’s Icon Series set will arrive with a new tournament that players can compete in, to unlock the skin for free. The YouTuber will also be competing in the event and giving fans the first look at the bundle, which includes an outfit, back bling, emote, and a pickaxe.

As of now, little has been shared about the upcoming tournament but Epic has revealed it to be “one-of-a-kind” with more information to follow before the event.

“Been dreaming of this day ever since I fell in love with the game back in 2017,” Lachlan reacted, revealing his excitement for the upcoming skin release, “official reveal of the skin coming soon.”

The official reveal of this skin is currently expected to be shared on November 1, and the next Fortnite star for the icon series will be Spanish star TheGrefg, although it is unclear just when he will receive a skin bundle.
