The Iconic Fortnite tournament by Keemstar returns

Keemstar tweets that he might revive Fortnite Friday this week.

In the first half of 2018 competitive Fortnite scene was shaped by independent tournament organizers such as Daniel “Keemstar” Keem, a prominent YouTuber.

 Keemstar held a weekly tournament called Friday Fortnite in partnership with UMG, sponsored by G FUEL and SteelSeries. The contest was broadcast in a unique way: instead of just watching games in the observing mode, Keemstar also showed players’ POV from their own Twitch streams. Such approach gave the tournament its own flavour and allowed players to keep the revenue from their personal stream.

 Friday Fortnite had to be put on hold due to intervention from Epic Games, who tried their own hand in competitive Battle Royale. The publisher held Summer Skirmish Series with frequent weekend tournaments, some of which directly competed with Friday Fortnite. On top of that, Keemstar was capped at $20k prize pool and it drew many notable players away.

 At one point Keemstar lost one of his partners and Friday Fortnite was put on halt.

 Last night Keemstar tweeted that he plans to revive his Fortnite tournament and start as early as next Friday. He hasn’t revealed the prize pool or any other details yet.
