It was a format that offered a bonus reward of $50,000 for the participants holding the top spot on top of getting the most eliminations in a game.

Team SoloMid Reverse2k
After putting up a dominating performance throughout the Summer Skirmish 2018, the success seemed to follow Reverse2k like a shadow. His success got recognized by Twitch, and became a partner for their platform on August 27, 2018. Reverse2k also became a duo partner with Ninja during the Summer Skirmish 2018, and though they did not end up winning, it forged a deep bond between both players.
Reverse2k was also fortunate enough to grab the attention of prominent gaming organizations. Although he received tons of invites from these organizations, he kept declining them until Team SoloMid sent him an invitation. Finally, he accepted the invitation and became a part of the TSM organization on July 25, 2019, just before the Fortnite World Cup 2019.
Reverse2k’s Disappointment over NOT Qualifying alongside Ninja for Fortnite World Cup
Reverse2k and Ninja remained in touch and played alongside as a duo since the Summer Skirmish 2018. Reverse2k had been an exceptional talent in his own right, but Ninja did not have as much satisfactory experience as he did. The stage was set for the biggest event in Fortnite history, the Fortnite World Cup. However, the duo had it rough since the beginning, especially Ninja, considering he had a hard time qualifying through the weeks. Eventually, he could not earn himself the spot to compete alongside Reverse2k in the Fortnite World Cup main event.
On the other hand, Reverse2k continued to dominate the scene, similar to how he did in the past. He put up an excellent performance during the North America East regionals and ended up placing second, ultimately earning himself a spot at the Fortnite World Cup. Though it was a happy moment for Reverse2k to showcase his potential at the big state, he was equally frustrated over not being able to play alongside his partner at the event. Ninja did wish him the best of luck for the event, considering it could become game-changing for Rever2k’s professional career.
Mixer Drama Rattles the Friendship between Reverse2k and Ninja
Everyone is aware of the fact that Ninja signed an official streaming contract with Mixer in the past. But not many people know about the argument that took place between two duo partners as a consequence. During the live stream alongside Nate Hill and TimTheTatman, Reverse2k and Ninja went into the dispute over the matter of respect for other streamers. Ninja made a point of youngsters not respecting the heads of the community, which Reverse2k replied that it should be the complete opposite.
Consequently, Ninja showed disbelief that there should be no respect for people who do not respect others. Ultimately, Reverse2k commented in a sarcastic manner that he would not become a part of Mixer. He ignited the flames of irritation within Ninja, which lead to a tense argument between both players for a few minutes. Afterward, Ninja refused to play alongside Reverse2k and made a social media statement defending his streaming platform. At the time, Reverse2k had over 300,000 followers on his twitch channel and ranked among the top 50 players in the NA East Region in 2019.
Reverse2k Part Ways with Ninja as Duo Partner before the FNCS Duos
Some people might think that the Mixer drama resulted in the duo splitting up, but it was long coming since before that event. The pair was unable to put a decent performance together across a horde of Fortnite events, which includes Ninja unable to qualify for the Fortnite World Cup.
Also, Ninja continued to drift towards the streaming and kept showing less interest in the professional Fortnite scene. It makes sense if you compare the popularity charts of Ninja as a streamer with his Fortnite earnings.
On the other hand, Reverse2k never strayed from the path of achieving glory in the professional Fortnite scene. The two opposite mindsets could only bring about misfortune for each other sooner or later. So, in a way, the split benefited both players more so in a good way.

Although there were drama and depressing times, Reverse2k accepted his fate and continued to focus on creating a name for himself in the world of professional Fortnite. After staying teamless for some time, Reverse2k signed an official contract with the Team New Age in September 2020 and has been an active member of the organization to this day.
