Fortnite Summer Skirmish Update
The Saturday bracket for Fortnite’s Summer Skirmish will return later today following an intense Friday night competition.
On Friday night NotVivid managed to snag the top price of $67,500.
While Team Liquid player Poach managed to win a massive $54,000 by finishing second, leaving Kreo in third place and walking away with ‘just’ $45,000.
Saturday’s Summer Skirmish even begins at 6pm UK time and the same rules apply.
It’s also worth noting that NotVivid was invited to play in this week’s Summer Skirmish competition based on his incredible form based on the previous Solo Showdown in-game event.
It just goes to show that you could one day be playing on your console, switch or PC at home one week and the next $67,500 in Epic’s top competition.
Stay tuned for more details about today’s Saturday event.

That’s why Epic Games launched the Fortnite Summer Skirmish, an 8-week long series of competitions where players can compete for $8,000,000 in prize money.
Over Friday and Saturday, 100 players will compete for big money, with a new competitive format that will should up the ante for players and viewers alike.
If you’re not familiar with it already, the format will change each week and so will the competitors, so you need to stay on your toes to wrap your head around whats going on.
