Despite last week’s disastrous Summer Skirmish, Epic’s inaugural Fortnite tournament series returns for round two later today. This week’s tournament is split across two days, with the first round commencing at 5 p.m. ET on Friday, July 20. When the Summer Skirmish Series was first announced, Epic promised each week would include different players and follow a new match format. True to their word, this weekend’s series is focused on Solo matches. It also uses a different scoring system than last week’s more traditional Duos format.

For this weekend’s tournament, the rules are as follows, per Epic’s blog:


The player with the highest score after 10 Solo matches will be named the winner. Victory Royales and Eliminations in this competition will be scored to determine placement at the end of the event. The top 20 players at the end of the Summer Skirmish will be awarded. You can also check the top players here.

Victory Royale: +5 Points
Eliminations: +1 Point
20 Eliminations (game): +10 Points, $10,000

The competitors are different for each day this weekend, though the rules remain the same.

Confirmed players for Summer Skirmish Week 2

Among these new players is Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, the winner of the first Fortnite Pro-Am 2018.
