- Popular Streamer Ninja is taking another historic step and creating his own tournament called Ninja Battles Fortnite Series.
There are many iconic names in the gaming world, however, no one was as influential as Ninja. He became one of the biggest streamers in the world and has achieved many firsts throughout his career. Now, Ninja will be introducing a new competitive tournament called Ninja Battle featuring Fortnite. It was announced and as you can see, the series will bear Ninja’s name. There will be 6 weeks during the tournament and each weekend will award players $80,000. We are expecting some iconic players into these series since there are not many tournaments left after the Fortnite World Cup cancellation.
Where to watch Ninja Battles?
Ninja will be hosting the event on his channel over at Mixer, however, streamers will also be able to host it on their own. The tournament will begin tomorrow on the 28th of May and will continue until the 2nd of July. Of course, we do not know what type of format the tournament will have since there will be many big names coming maybe the rest of the 100 players will be filled by the fans, or a lot more relatively smaller names will be added into the tournament. The tournament will take place every Thursday until the 2nd of July and there is no point accumulation between weekends.
I’m excited to announce Ninja Battles! An online Fortnite invitational series featuring six events across May – July, each with an $80,000 prize pool. Starts tomorrow Thursday, May 28 at 12 PM PT / 3 PM ET. https://t.co/lvn9KBjEYq #NinjaBattles pic.twitter.com/kg4ncHevQ6

The interesting part is this will be the first Fortnite series attributed to an esports persona. Of course, Ninja made Fortnite enormously successful, but he also gained a lot of fame through the game. Ninja and his management company will be signing several names until the tournament begins at least.
