We can all breathe easy again knowing that Fortnite is back on during the weekends. Epic is moving forward again with another Skirmish series and has changed up the format a bit. Instead of players going in as solos or duos, each player is also fighting for “club points”.

Here is how the week one format that was used:

  • Victory Royale: 3 points
  • 2nd-3rd place: 2 points
  • 4th-5th place: 1 point
  • 8+ eliminations: 3 points
  • 6-7 eliminations: 2 points
  • 4-5 eliminations: 1 point
  • Hold The Throne (Most eliminations): 2 points

Fans witnessed the free agent VapeJesus and Pittsburg Knights’ ZexRow claim the win with 12 total points and walked away with $67,500. Fortnite enthusiasts will remember VapeJesus from Ninja’s Vegas event. In second came the impressive Ghost Gaming duo of Bizzle and Dmo, who finished with 10 points and took home $47,500. Third place was occupied by Zayt and Envy’s LeNain who had nine points, just shy of tying second place. You can see the final placings on Fortnite’s dedicated Fall Skirmish page.

Players from both North America and Europe combine their points for club results. Points from the top ten teams from NA and EU were compiled, tallying the first ever club results standings.

  1. Bush Bandits- 690 points
  2. Dusty Dogs- 540 points
  3. Fort Knights- 420 points
  4. Rift Raiders- 340 points
  5. Lucky Llamas- 275 points
