Popular YouTuber Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem confirmed that ‘Friday Fortnite’ would be making a sensational return – the full list of participants has now been released.
The ‘DramaAlert’ host was quick to cover the recent drama between FaZe Clan and Fortnite Battle Royale star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney with Tfue deciding to pursue a lawsuit against the organization over an “oppressive contract”.
FaZe co-owner Ricky ‘Banks’ Banks was quick to refute the claims and, as a show of good faith, FaZe offered up the amount they made from Tfue as a prize pool for Friday Fortnite – which had been discontinued for over a year – taking place on May 31.
The full list of participants has now been revealed including Twitch superstar Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and his duo partner Malachi ‘Reverse2k’ Greiner – who will face the winner of a qualifying tournament aimed to provide a smaller streamer with the chance to gain some popularity.
Should Ninja advance past his first matchup, he could face popular rapper Daystar ‘Tory Lanez’ Peterson in the next round if they can navigate a tricky match up against Fortnite Battle Royale veterans James ‘Replays’ Crowder and Nicholas ‘Nick Eh 30’ Amyoony.
Team SoloMid’s Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani will feature alongside one of Twitch’s most popular streamers Timothy ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar.
The tournament also sees the return of fan favorites Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff and Ghost Gaming’s Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad who face off against fellow Twitch streamers Sypher ‘SypherPK’ Ali and Jimmy ‘HighDistortion’ in an intriguing first round battle.
Other competitors including Team Secret’s Kyle ‘Mongraal’ Jackson who partners with Martin ‘MrSavageM’ Andersen – the two players are considered among the very best in the EU region.
The full list of participants and tournament bracket can be found below.
