The second week of KEEMSTAR and UMG’s Friday Fortnite tournament built on the success of week one, with a doubled prize pool and even more big name players taking part.
Up from $5,000 in week one to $10,000, the tournament attracted the likes of Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, Dr DisRespect, Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek and more of the top Battle Royale streamers around.
With so many participants and exciting match ups to watch, hosts UMG put on their own stream of the event, in addition to players themselves, and did their best to bring viewers the as much of the action from across the tournament.
Complete with casting from some of the UMG team, the stream acted as the central hub for the tournament, allowing fans to enjoy lots of top players’ POV’s in one location.
And ahead of week three, which will once again feature another increased prize pool up to $20,000, the UMG team have released a highlight reel video showcasing some of the craziest moments from across the second event.
There is of course Ninja’s 23 kill round which was likely the number one highlight of the whole run, but also some other impressive and funny clips from the variety of players.
Week one winners NICKMERCS and Sypher feature in the highlights too, despite not being able to replicate their placement this time around.
You can also watch some of the most impressive moments from eventual winning duo SoaR Thiefs and Typical Gamer, who surprised many to take 1st place.
The third iteration of the the Friday Fortnite tournament is set for this Friday, May 25th, and as mentioned will feature a $20,000 prize pool.
Also be on the lookout for the new Saturday Fortnite tournament, which KEEMSTAR has arranged for ‘smaller’ creators to get their shot in the limelight.
