Minecraft Monday is back with its ninth week of competitive action that pits top content creators against one another. Here's all you need to know.
Friday Fortnite may be canceled until September but Minecraft Monday is still motoring on and it's back for another week of chaotic action.
While there might be favorites going into this, anything can happen so it's worth tuning in just to see all of the crazy things that will most likely occur. xQc and m0xy were able to take home the victory last time so let's see if they can repeat.
