Youtubers Typical Gamer and SoaR Thief powered through a nail-biting tournament last night to become the week 2 Friday Fortnite Champions. This was the second Friday Fortnite tournament hosted by KEEMSTAR. The last two Fridays have seen well-known streamers from the far reaches of the web and beyond participate in these wildly successful events.
In a masterfully played final, Typical Gamer and SoaR Thief went head to head with two members of Team Solo Mid. Daequan and Hamlinz. Outmaneuvering the popular streamers, Team Solo Mid won a swift victory in the first match.
Having won every game up until this point meant they had to be beaten twice, though, and only had to win once to take home the prize. Both teams felt the pressure in the final match. Another thing keeping the kill count excruciatingly tight.
Both Hamlinz and Thief went down around the same time. This left it all up to their teammates as they could only watch and hope. Typical and Thief’s early lead was just enough, though, to see them through to victory and the $10,000 prize.
To The Victors!!! Typical Gamer & SoaR Thief, Great job guys!
Many big names in the streaming and eSports worlds participated in the second ‘Friday Fortnite’ tournament hosted by KEEMSTAR and UMG including Ninja (who had a 23 kill match) Members from teams like FaZe, The Sidemen, and Optic Gaming. The returning champs, SypherPK and NICKMERCS, were eliminated in the first game.

I’m almost certain that this is a very similar list to the one we’ll see next month during Epic’s Celebrity Pro-AM ‘Party Royale’. At least on the gamer end of things. We’re also still awaiting their announcement on competitive Fortnite. I imagine that’s something we’ll see with the end of Solo Showdown. We all know, if they’re good at anything at all, it’s keeping us all waiting. This is Travis making sure you’re caught up on everything Fortnite! Ciao!
