Two Fortnite Battle Royale players have been accused of teaming during Week Five of the Fortnite World Cup qualifiers for the North America West region.
May 11-12 marked the fifth week of qualification to the Fortnite World Cup, with players reaching the halfway point in their attempts to secure a spot in New York for the incredibly huge, and lucrative, battle royale competitive event.
While plenty of players were cursing their luck after falling short in qualifying, others were left furious by enemy players in their games. In particular, streamer Phillip ‘Philldown’ Le, who competed in the NA West portion and has accused two opponents of ‘teaming’ in solo matches.
Philldown posted what he believes to be evidence of the teaming incident to the Fortnite Competitive subreddit on May 13, suggesting that his opponents ‘Oro’ and ‘Yermpy’ were teaming in a bid to manipulate their points tally, by ganging up other players.

After the game was over, he went back to review the footage of why the two players were acting suspiciously in the match. Using the replay feature, Le fast-forwarded to his chase with the player known as ‘Oro’ and claimed that Oro was missing his shots on purpose, to not raise any suspicion of potential teaming.
The streamer was left furious after he dealt damage to Oro, but the player jumped in a rift and looked to chase down another player, despite not being in any condition to do so.
There’s another clip of the alleged teaming, too, which shows the aftermath of the players jumping through a Rift. As all three players landed, both Oro and Yermpy turned their attention to Philldown, he says, despite being almost next to each other.

The streamer was able to eliminate Oro, before being gunned down by Yermpy. Clearly angered by the situation, Philldown moved to report both players after the game for teaming.
While neither of the alleged teamers cracked the top spots in the qualifying round, it remains to be seen if Epic Games will take action against them, following the allegations. Rise Nation pro ‘XXiF’ was accused of teaming in Week 3 and later handed a 14 day competitive suspension by Epic.
However, the developers are yet to respond to the allegations made towards Oro and Yermpy. This article will be updated if more information becomes available.
Chapter 3 Season 2 Live Event: Everything we know so far
The first live event of Chapter 3 is expected to take place in less than six weeks. Here’s everything we know so far, based on various leaks.
Leaked Map Stages
All future stages for the territories controlled by both The Seven and Imagined Order have been leaked by data-miner Hypex. The maps show the Resistance will retake control of most of the Island, leaving only Command Cavern and Loot Lake for the IO. The final stage will lead the story directly into a live event, with the Imagined Order having little options left for victory.
Leaked Quest Voice Line
Epic also recently added new voice lines for the upcoming Week 6 Quests which, when reviewed closely, appear to tease the main story of a new live event. The Agent Jones character claims “one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production”, seemingly hinting that the new event could be related to Chapter 2 Season 2’s The Device, which was also focused around a “Doomsday Device”.
A transcript of the Agent Jones voice lines can be found below:
“This will not come as a surprise, but IO management loves Doomsday machines – loves them! There’s even a doomsday division at HQ, oh man their softball team is awful but they will one day destroy us all so… kind of a wash. We have very credible intel that one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production. We need to find out everything we can while we still can. Hit the field, I’ll prep the cameras . . . I have a very bad feeling that we are not ready for what we’re gonna find out.”
According to Fortnite data-miner GMatrixGames, a new Landmark code-named ‘DDMachine’ has been added to the game’s tags, suggesting that the Doomsday Device described by Agent Jones could be added to the map in the future.
Less than six weeks remain until the potential live event. We’ll keep you updated with the latest leaks and official announcements.
Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go Unvaulted Until April 25
In preparation for the upcoming item vote, the Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go have both been unvaulted for a trial period until April 25.
Players can now find the items scattered throughout the Island from Chests, Llamas, Supply Drops, Loot Sharks and ground loot. Once the short trial period ends on April 25 at 8AM ET, new gold funding stations will go live in-game on the following day to let players “fund” the item they want to see return permanently (for the rest of Season 2). The item that becomes 100% funded first will automatically be reintroduced to the loot pool as soon as the goal, of which the exact value is unknown, is reached.
We’ll keep you updated on which item gets unvaulted.
Leak: S.T.A.R.S. Team and El Chapulín Colorado to Return Very Soon
Fortnite has re-added multiple Item Shop sections to its API, meaning they will be available very soon. Five existing sections have also been removed, suggesting Epic doesn’t plan to bring those Sets back to the Item Shop for a while.

- El Chapulín Colorado
- Wu Wear (new)
Removed Item Shop Sections:

The ‘Wu Wear’ section, which was added to the API today, will contain the new Wu-Tang Clan cosmetics; featuring two Outfits, two Bundles and more.
We’ll keep you updated if any additional sections are changed.
