Fortnite Summer Skirmish went down with a splash ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

If you’ve been following Fortnite tournaments, you noticed that Epic was constantly improving the eSport aspect of the game. It seems like they have finally figured out the best format for a competition.

 Last Sunday Epic held Fortnite Summer Skirmish finals at PAX West with 99 players fighting for a $1,5 million prize pool. Competitors qualified during the previous 3 days of exhibition in Seattle. Each Victory Royale during the final game granted a player 3 points in the standings and a $25 000 bonus. Participants also received points for frags and top 10 finishes.

The tournament had a ton of glorious moments, and you should definitely check out the VoD even if you aren’t into competitive Fortnite.

The scoring system is clearly supposed to incentivize players to look for confrontations, but many of them still preferred to play Sim-City simulator and hide behind walls instead of fighting. The final winner in one of the games was decided by the amount of HP and healing items competitors had when the zone closed up, resulting in a somewhat anticlimactic finish.

 On another note, Liquid Poach managed to get the 3rd place in overall standings and win $135k without winning a single game, mostly because of the high frag count.  Poach executed 17 eliminations and had secured third highest kill count of the tournament.

The brightest moment of Summer Skirmish:

Crowning a new champion is the sweetest moment of every competition. Tournament organizers always hope that the winner shows colourful emotions. This time they were not disappointed when MorgausseTV came to “Ima rich b*tch” realization right in front of the camera. At one point he simply ran out of the player area, overwhelmed by emotions.

MorgausseTV earned $225k for taking the first place in the standings on top of 25k for a Victory Royale. He also had the highest kill count of 20.
