Airwaks and RL Grime win Fortnite Pro-Am tournament
The duo takes home the Victory Royale for the second annual blockbuster event, netting $1 million for a charity of their choice.
The second day of the Fortnite Summer Block Party has come to a close, meaning we also have victors for the celebrity Pro-Am tournament, which pitted 50 duo teams of pros and celebrities together in one star-studded lobby. This year (which marks the second annual Pro-Am) saw Karim "Airwaks" Benghalia and American trap and bass artist RL Grime win the event, securing a huge sum of money for a charity of their choice.
The tournament consisted of a four-game series in which placement was the primary beneficiary of points. Victory Royales would net duos ten points, with placements up to 15th making for between seven and three points.
During the first matchup of the event, Airwaks managed to secure a victory, after taking down one of the biggest presences on Twitch in Turner "Tfue" Tenney. The second game saw one of last year's most interesting and newest players, Aydan, take the victory. The third game almost saw Airwaks taking another win, before stumbling at the last hurdle, landing a third place for the duo, with Typical Gamer taking it in the end. Finally, Aydan almost secured another win before NRG's Symfuhny took him down, claiming the victory for himself.
In the end, the standings placed Airwaks and RL Grime at the top of the leaderboard claiming the championship, with Aydan and Tfue following closely behind in second and third place respectively. As for which charities the duo chose to donate their winnings, Airwaks has decided to donate to WWFFrance, whereas RL Grime is yet to announce his at the time of writing.
