UPDATE: Ninja and his teammate FaZe Sway have dropped out of this week’s tournament.
ORIGINAL STORY: Keemstar and UMG have brought back Friday Fortnite for another week, and Week 5 has a pretty star-studded cast.
Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster and Dr. Disrespect are making their first appearances in the tournament in 2019. Bronny James, son of LeBron James, is entering in again as well.
MrSavage and benjyfishy won Week 1, FaZe Tilt & FaZe Jarvis won Week 2, Mongraal and Mitr0 won Week 3 and Aydan and innocents won Week 4. There’s a $20,000 overall prize pool with the winners taking half ($10,000) and a random viewer on Twitch winning the other half.
Now, let’s get in to Week 5’s details.
What time does Friday Fortnite start?
- Date: Friday, July 12
- Time: 4 p.m. ET / 1 p.m. PT
Friday Fortnite Bracket: Week 5 live results
Here’s how the above bracket works.
Pairs of competitors will join a squad match, but will not be playing as a true squad. The two pairs of teams will instead be battling for a higher amount of eliminations.
The duo with the higher amount of elims after two matches advances. The higher seeded team hosts the first match, and then the lower-seeded team hosts the second match on their server. Duos are not allowed to sabotage the other Duos.
Examples of sabotage:
- Breaking or weakening opponent’s built or non built structures or cover by any means.
- Causing opponents to miss shots or miss opportunities for advancing their scores in any way shape or form.
- Building in front of your opponent.
- Boogie Bombing your opponent.
- The use of a boogie bomb on your opponent at any point in the game are subject to disqualification
