With the FNCS on a bye-week, we turn our attention to some in-game news along with professional roster shuffling.
Here's everything you missed from this past week in Fortnite.
Rift Tour ft Ariana Grande
The Rift Tour was the latest in a line of ever-improving Fortnite events.
No matter what you think of Ariana Grande or Fortnite as a game, there's no denying that the Rift Tour was a contender for the best live event in gaming history.
Fortnite continues to outdo themselves when it comes to live events. I only hope that they extend this creativity to lore-based events like we've seen in the past.
Even more crossovers
The Fortnite crossovers don't look like they're slowing down anytime soon, as more and more properties vie for entry into one of gaming's biggest title.
Along with Ariana Grande, we saw two new Street Fighter skins, Guile and Cammy, come to the game.
This accompanies news that we'll be getting major Suicide Squad skins in the near future.
On Monday, we also learned that Epic are adding a Gamora skin to Fortnite, leaving Drax and Mantis as the only Guardians not in Fortnite.
Meanwhile, in the professional scene, we saw FNCS champion, Chapix, join Falcons esports as more organizations pad their Fortnite rosters.
On the other side of the coin, we also saw Wave Esports cut ties with Jur3ky, who reportedly sent threatening DMs to another player after fighting them in a custom game.
The community was split over this decision, as some fans saw the DMs as toxic banter rather than real threats.
Nonetheless, Wave decided to drop Ju3ky less than 24 hours after the DMs surfaced.
We are parting ways with @Jur3ky!— WAVE (@WaveAUT) August 7, 2021
Thank you for everything and good luck in the future. #wavecheck 🌊 pic.twitter.com/by22XaWYkx
