Fortnite Million Dollar Summer Skirmish Week 4: Stream, Power Rankings, and Schedule

Solos featuring Ninja, Myth, TFUE, Nick Eh 30, and more.

Week four of Epic Games’ Fortnite Summer Skirmish is this week. We’re back to solos after an interesting and mostly exciting week three of duo action. I’m assuming that this is being played on private servers, being that they seemed to have mastered the server performance when it comes to duo and solo endings with plenty of players. Squads are still wild and the servers are less than perfect, watch some squad scrims one night if you’re bored.

It’ll be interesting to see how the pace of private server solos plays in comparison to duo games on private servers. Duos still ended somewhat chaotically, but it was certainly smoother than squads. It really makes sense that Epic might be right to not do squads in Summer Skirmish.

Logic would lead you to believe that solos would play even quicker than duos and be a bit more exciting. While that remains to be seen, I’m most interested in how the presentation and stream will be. The hardest part of the first few weeks has been watching the Epic Games stream and trying to get an entire perspective of what’s happening.

Here is the rule list from Epic Games.

The first player to reach 8 or more points by the end of the competition wins. Victory Royales and Eliminations in this competition will be scored to determine placement at the end of the event. The player with the most eliminations in a single match will “Hold the throne” and hold a bonus point until dethroned.

Victory Royale: +2 Points
2nd and 3rd Place: +1 Point
4 or more Eliminations: +1 Point
Hold the Throne (Most Eliminations in a Single Match): +1 Point, $50,000

Epic Games

The NA tournament will start on Friday August 3rd, 2 p.m. PT/5 p.m. ET and the EU tournament will begin on Saturday, August 4th, at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET. These will be live streamed on their official Twitch channel, but the individual streamers will be showing off their game play as well on their respective channels.

First place will grab $67,500, second place will take home $54,000, and the money keeps flowing all the way down to 20th place with $6,750. There’s also a $50,000 most eliminations per match bonus.


Power Rankings

  1. Liquid Chap: The Liquid boys are all candidates to finish first. Chap just happens to be first for me.

  2. TSM_Daequan: I’ve been liking the way that Dae is playing solos. He’s been on point recently with his rotations and the gun skill is always there.

  3. Liquid Poach: As long as Poach doesn’t come against a fleet of P90s he should be fine.

  4. FaZe TFUE: TFUE needs a bit of redemption after last week’s poor performance with Cloak.

  5. Ninja: For this Skirmish to keep staying at record viewing numbers Ninja needs to show up in a big way.

  6. TSM_Myth

  7. 100T Parallax

  8. TSM_Hamlinz

  9. High Distortion

  10. Liquid 72HRS
