How to watch Keemstar’s $20,000 Friday Fortnite tournament ft. Ninja & PewDiePie – Schedule, Brackets, Stream, and more

Published

The second coming of the renewed Friday Fortnite tournaments is arriving June 7th. Thanks to funding from FaZe Clan, the popular event is back again to thrill thousands of viewers.

Back in the beginning of competitive Fortnite, Friday Fortnite was the go to tournament for big time money and entertainment. After Epic’s move to take more direct control of the scene, the events dissipated.

But now it is back! For the second weekend in a row, Friday Fortnite returns! All the biggest names in Fortnite will be competing for prize money alongside other celebrities.

When does Friday Fortnite – June 7 start?

The second week of Friday Fortnite will begin at the same times as the first event. Friday Fortnite’s official start times are 1PM PST/4PM EST/9PM BST. The event expected to last for quite awhile (6 to 9 hours) judging by last weekend’s event.

The event will be run and streamed by UMG again. Of course, you can also catch your favorite players streaming the event on their own channels. This includes Ninja, Myth, Liquid Chap, etc.

Who will we see playing in Friday Fortnite?

The second weekend of the Friday Fortnite return isn’t quite the spectacle as the first week. With that said, you can still expect a lot of amazing players and celebrities battling it out.

Of course, Ninja and Pewdiepie will be playing in this event. These two powerhouses alone will bring tens of thousands of viewers for the event.

For a full list of all contestants, you can scroll through the bracket below.

Full Friday Fortnite Bracket

This is a live bracket which will be updated throughout the event. It’s a great way to follow along with the results when you can’t watch the stream.

The bracket is interactive and can be scrolled in all four directions on any platform of your choice. The bracket is created and run by UMG using the Challonge bracket creation tool.

What’s the Friday Fortnite Format?

Round Two. Fight!

Friday Fortnite will continue to follow the classic Fortnite style of play.

Instead of the point based placement system we are used to from the Fortnite World Cup, Friday Fortnite will be played via public matches. Many viewers have stated they enjoy watching this format much more than the FWC.

In this format, players will enter a Squads lobby with the other Duo. They will then start a public Squads match.

The teams compete against each other for kills. The team with the most kills wins the round. This is done twice and then kills are added up. The team with the most kills over two rounds moves on.

As the duos are in the same Squad, the players cannot harm the gameplay of the other duo. They can steal kills, but the following are examples of what is off limits:

  • Breaking other duo’s builds to make them die or fall
  • Preventing movement by body-blocking
  • Boogie-bombing the other duo
  • Blocking the other duo by building in front of them

Keep in mind that accidents do happen and all cases are thoroughly reviewed by UMG staff.

Fortnite Creative Mode could be getting a huge expansion

Fortnite Creative Mode could bring a massive update to truly simulate end-game scenarios, according to a recent leak.

Fortnite Creative Mode could bring a massive update to truly simulate end-game scenarios.

Creative Mode was one of the most innovative additions that Epic has made to Fortnite. You don’t even have to play the base game mode to enjoy Fortnite, anymore. You can play Search and Destroy, deathruns, Zone Wars, Trivia, boxfights, and a lot more.

Competitive Fortnite players have taken to Creative Mode the most. Zone Wars gives you a simulated end-game and boxfights let you practice the most important element of high-level competitive play.

Fortnite Creative beta

Over a year ago, way back in, Fortnite v12.10, files were added to the game that we assumed would bring a massive change to Creative Mode. According to the game files, Creative can now support up to 50 players.

A year after we first heard the news about an updated Creative Beta, we still have yet to see this in practice. Since it’s been so long, many players forgot that it was even on the horizon.

After the v15.50 update, however, data miners found some new files that relate to the Creative Mode expansion. According to them, Epic are testing a beta of Creative that should support 50 players.

Such a change would be a massive step for the game. You could truly play a mini-BR game with your friends if this change went through. YouTube creators and streamers could also manage private matches a lot easier, as there’s no chance of a code leak or an unwanted intruder.

The best part of this additional player count is the ability to truly simulate competitive end-game situations. Zone Wars is good practice for a lot of us, but not for those at the highest level.

Anyone who has ever watched a tournament knows what we’re talking about. The end-game in professional Fortnite matches routinely has 40+ players in the final few zones. It’s pure chaos, and a 50-player Zone Wars lobby will be able to capture this.

Of course, the expansion also opens the door to a ton of other possibilities including massive boxfight battles and more. Epic will be focusing on the Creative side of things for the future of Fortnite, and an increased player count is an excellent first step.

Fortnite v15.50 update leaked skins

Epic Games have rolled out their first update in a few weeks, with the arrival of Fortnite patch v15.50, and a number of skins and cosmetics have leaked as a result.

These weekly updates were never missed in times gone by, however Fortnite Chapter 2 has been a lot more inconsistent in that sense. Some weeks there is a huge update with map changes, new crossovers and challenges – while others will just make very minor bug changes.

You can always read about what to expect from the patch here on Fortnite Intel, and alongside those patch notes, let’s run through some of the game’s unreleased outfits.

Fortnite’s most recent crossover was with Street Fighter and Alien, but what’s next?

On March 2, once the downtime began, a number of leakers started looking into the game’s files to see what had changed. To their surprise, with just two weeks left in the season, not much had been tweaked in terms of content.

However, we do have some leaked skins and cosmetics to dig through – courtesy of Lucas7Yoshi and VastBlast.

Epic Games has dropped patch v15.40 in Fortnite and with it comes a boat load of leaked skins as well as cosmetics.

The latest update brought back one of the game’s older weapons, which had been vaulted for some time, and that’s the Flint Knock pistol.

As the pirate theme died long ago in Chapter 2, the weapon hasn’t been around for much of Chapter 2 – but now it’s back in the loot pool.

As usual, following an update, leakers have been hard at work looking around for any potential teasers for upcoming content. To that point, leaked skins and cosmetics have emerged.

New Bundles

Before we dive into the individual skins and how they’re going to look in Fortnite, it’s worth noting VastBlast discovered four new bundles are included.

These can be seen below – coming with individual pickaxes, back blings, and more.

On top of that, ShiinaBR revealed how some of the new skins shape up in-game.

Last but not least is the SypherPK Locker Bundle, found by iFireMonkey.

Fortnite v15.40 leaked cosmetics

Here’s the list of new cosmetics leaked, courtesy of HYPEX – one of the game’s most accurate leakers.

As you can see, a number of weapon wraps and other cosmetics are in the works.

Now, it’s only a matter of time before they’re added to the battle royale experience. Which one do you have eyes for? Let us know by tweeting us @FortniteINTEL on Twitter.
