RIP Friday Fortnite ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

A couple of days ago we broke the news about Daniel “KEEMSTAR” Keem, who used to organize weekly Fortnite Friday competition. On Monday he tweeted about plans to revive the tournament because Epic Games finalized Summer Skirmish.

Shortly after that tweet Epic Games announced Fall Skirmish with even bigger prize pool and a smaller time frame. KEEMSTAR had a very simple response to the announcement:

A couple of hours ago KEEMSTAR wrote that instead of Fortnite Friday he would start running Friday BlackOut with the same format.

At this point we can’t confirm if UMG Gaming are going to support Friday BlackOut, but you can safely assume that KEEMSTAR will find partners to fund the competition.

KEEMSTAR started to hold Fortnite Friday tournaments before Epic Games made their deep dive into esports. The publisher’s Summer Skirmish series drew a lot of viewers and notable participants away from Fortnite Friday, forcing the organizer to look into other popular games.
