Best moments from Fortnite Fall Skirmish Finals
Published on October 29th, 2018
On Sunday, October 28, Fortnite's Fall Skirmish series finalised at TwitchCon in a stacked lobby of the best duos in Fortnite right now. Naturally, with such a fantastic group of players all in one game, there was guaranteed to be some crazy, exciting and impressive moments – and we've collated some of the very best here. Morgausse and Saint find an unconventional way to take the high ground Summer Skirmish winner Austin "Morgausse" Etue proved this weekend why he is one of the best players in the world, and he and teammate Saint found a new way to take the high ground by using Shadow Stones to their advantage. As evidenced by the aerial view provided, Morgausse and Saint were able to float far above the rest of the contestants, picking up integral information on the whereabouts of their opponents, as well as being able to choose where they should land to give themselves the best chance of winning. 200IQ Zexrow play secures top 3 Prior to the tournament starting, not many had Anthony "Zexrow" Colandro and Vinny "vinny1xx" Gilgan amongst the top of their predicted leaderboards. With so many great duos in contention, they managed to get overlooked, but an incredible final match made sure they got third place, and here is Zexrow making an intelligent play to guarantee the win. Nickmercs and Aydan make it rain It's fair to say that the only duo that could challenge Tfue and Cloakzy as fan-favourites was the console team of Nick "Nickmercs" Mercs and Ghost Gaming's Aydan "Aydan" Conrad. In game five of the six-game grand finals, Aydan and Nick found themselves absolutely dominating, including getting six kills in the "Make it Rain" phase – a five-minute period between circles three and four in which the duo with the most kills could take the $10,000 prize, with the $10,000 rolling over each time someone didn't win it. Nick and Aydan were getting hyped, CouRage's casting was incredible and the crowd was electric. Personally, this was my favourite moment. Tfue and Cloakzy win it all Turner "Tfue" Tenney and Dennis "Cloakzy" Lepore were definitely looked at as favourites going into the tournament, and they proved why throughout. Cloakzy himself finished the grand finals matches with 22 eliminations – equal to or more than every other duo. As the fans chanted in his interview following the final match, he was most definitely the MVP of the event. They took home $400,000 – $200k each – making themselves Fortnite's two highest-earning players. Of course, these are only a few of some of the greatest moments from Fortnite's biggest event yet.
