Fortnite Celebrity Pro-Am 2018
This is another fun event that Epic Games has come up with and still hosts every year. The Fortnite Celebrity Pro-Am is more of a charity event than a tournament, but imagine getting to see all your favorite celebrities competing against each other in your favorite game! That is exactly what the whole tournament is about. Every year, Epic Games brings about some 100 celebrities, puts them into teams of two, and then they all fight it out against each other. The winning money or prize of the teams would go towards certain charity organizations that were set by Epic Games. Usually, the Fortnite Celebrity Pro-Am is one of the most popular and most watched tournaments too. However, in 2018, it was so popular because it was just the beginning.
Some of the most popular participants in the tournament were Ninja + Marshmello, Airwaks and RL Grime, DrLupo and Sigala, and StoneMountain + Jordan Fisher. People were more than excited to see all these big names coming to play Fortnite! The average number of views recorded for the whole tournament was 1 271 405, and the highest number of viewers was recorded on the last day of the tournament at 1 970 852. Hence, you can only imagine how many went to watch the offline event. The winners of the Fortnite Celebrity Pro-Am 2018 were Ninja and Marshmello. Fans were more than happy to see the duo win, and they won quite a huge amount of money, so they decided to donate the whole of it to a charity organization for the welfare of the needy.
Fortnite Summer Skirmish Week 1
This is another fun online event that Epic Games hosts for all the regions across the world where a team has to have two players. This duo match is quite popular, and people were more than excited to watch the whole 8-week event back in 2018 when it was held. Even though the 2019 event was popular, 2018 one recorded more views than ever. Hence, we will be talking about Fortnite Summer Skirmish Week 1 2019. The first week was from North America’s side, so fans were more excited to see who is going to be the top duo in Fortnite from that region.
The Fortnite Summer Skirmish Week 1 saw an average of viewers recorded at 580 446, and the maximum number of viewers recorded at the end of Week 1 at 758 024. Though it may appear to be nothing in comparison to the numbers we were looking at earlier, keep in mind that we are talking about views in a week, so they are expected to be quite high. The winners of the Fortnite Summer Skirmish Week 1 were Kevie1 and Vivid, who also won a cash prize of $50,000. The runner-ups were Bartonologist and BaySoldier from The Snobby Boys, and Chap, and 72hrs from Team Liquid.
Ninja Vegas '18
This was basically another charity that was organized by Ninja, one of the most popular content creators and also a famous Fortnite streamer. He had organized this small event and had announced that every time he wins, he would donate a certain amount of money to the cause of Alzheimer's. It was an extremely small event, and only those who were interested in joining in could do so. Yet, when it was broadcast live, it seemed that most of the Fortnite community appreciated the whole thing, and there was an average number of viewers recorded at 462 732, and the maximum number of viewers recorded at 648 310.
These were some of the most viewed or the best Fortnite tournaments that have been held over the years. Most of them had been started from 2018 or before, and due to the Pandemic and everything, there were quite a lot of hindrances in terms of organizing a grand tournament on behalf of Epic Games. However, we can expect a few grand tournaments this year or the next.
