Team EnVy pro player ‘KingRichard’ and Team SoloMid streamer ‘Aimbotcalvin’ have won the tenth running of the KEEMSTAR ‘Friday Fortnite’ celebrity tournament.

The pair beat out the 100 Thieves pro player duo of ‘Kenith’ and ‘Parallax’ in the Grand Final to secure the whopping $10,000 first place prize.

Having won the Winners Bracket, KingRichard and Aimbotcalvin came into the Grand Final needing to only win one match, whereas Kenith and Parallax, who were coming from the Losers Bracket, needed two.

However, things did not get to that point as Richard and Calvin were able to take care of business across the two games in the first and only match.

The victory secured the first ever Friday Fortnite championship for both players, and must have been extra sweet for KingRichard, who had previously made it to a Grand Final while playing with ‘Ninja,’ but lost to four-time winners ‘Tfue’ and ‘Cloak.’

Despite coming up just short, Parallax and Kenith have every right to hold their heads high. The pair, playing in their first Friday Fortnite together, took home $7,000, managed to beat defending champions Tfue and Cloak twice, and secured the second best finish ever for 100 Thieves, after content creator ‘NICKMERCS’ won the whole thing in Week One.

Sponsored by popular YouTube Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem and UMG, the tenth running of the ‘Friday Fortnite’ tournament on July 13 featured some of the biggest names of the online gaming and content creation communities.

Members of FaZe Clan, Team SoloMid, The Sidemen, OpTic Gaming, 100 Thieves, and a host of other big YouTubers and Twitch streamers all competed for a share of the massive $20,000 prize pool.

Here are the final placements for Friday Fortnite Week 10:

Fortnite tease exclusive new Drift Crew skin with Fox Clan hints

UPDATE 1/24: After making several tweets and updating their avatar, the official Fortnite Twitter account deleted all tweets made on January 24 and reversed their avatar to the previous picture. The official Fortnite Twitter account started the hype train for the game’s next Fortnite Crew release by changing their avatar and issuing cryptic tweets about ‘Fox Clan,’ and fans are already speculating on when the next big surprise might arrive.

Fortnite has a long history of using in-game and social media teasers to hype up the BR’s future content. Whether teasing some new skins or a complete rework of the game’s universe, Epic Games is no stranger when it comes to feeding players a slow drip of hints to build up the hype.

With Chapter 2 Season 5 well underway, players have already been treated to special events like Terminator and Predator crossovers. However, Season 5 doesn’t end until March 15 and players are already looking for clues on what the season’s next content drop might include.

On January 24, Fortnite’s official Twitter account changed its avatar and tweeted out two mysterious hints linked to the game’s next big reveal. The community quickly flooded Twitter to discuss the teasers, but were then confused when the tweets were deleted only hours later.

Fortnite Drift Crew Pack Skin HYPEX Leak
Epic Games
Fortnite data miner HYPEX revealed the game’s new teasers are related to an upcoming Fortnite Crew skin for Drift.

The first tweet referenced establishing a connection and beginning a scan, which didn’t give fans much to go off of. However, the second part had some important implications, and included a reference to one of the games most iconic characters: Drift.

“Drift? Drift. Come in. Do you read me?” the last sentence read. Drift was originally introduced in Fortnite’s first Season 5, and was loved by players for his unique kitsune appearance and skins (kitsune means fox in Japanese, and these creatures often appear in Japanese folklore).

The second tweet issued a cryptic warning: “I know you don’t know who I am, but the Fox Clan is in trouble. We need you.” Fox Clan is something completely new to Fortnite, but it appeared to tie in with Drift’s previous in-game aesthetic and the account’s updated avatar.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 Skins
Epic Games
The leaked Drift skin is the latest in a series of cosmetics introduced in Season 5.

Fortnite data miner HYPEX also believed the teasers are related to Drift. The leaker shared an image of an unreleased Drift skin – which appeared to be a female version of the previously-male character – and confirmed the skin will be included in the February edition of the Fortnite Crew subscription.

Fortnite Crew – Epic’s monthly subscription model – nets players each new battle pass and 1,000 V-bucks every season, along with Crew Packs that include an exclusive outfit and matching accessory. HYPEX confirmed that the teased Drift skin will be tied to an upcoming Crew Pack.

So far, Epic Games has not revealed any additional clues other than the two mysterious tweets. While new information will continue to be discovered by HYPEX and other data miners, no additional clues have been posted at the time of writing.

After issuing several more mysterious tweets after the first two were posted, the official Fortnite account then deleted all of the tweets teasing the new content and reverted the account’s avatar to its previous image.

It remains to be seen whether this is part of a larger plan involving the teaser process, or if Epic took these actions to correct a reveal that was made too early. The Fortnite and Epic Games accounts haven’t issued any additional clarifications at the time of writing.

Fortnite fans will need to wait for confirmation on exactly what Epic has planned for the February Crew Pack, and why these tweets were made and then deleted. We will make sure to keep you updated as any new information is revealed at Fortnite Intel on Twitter.
