Drummond will team up with one of the best Fortnite players on the planet, nickmercs.
Why do I know nickmercs is one of the best players on the planet? Because I play Fortnite as well and constantly watch his youtube videos. I’d give this duo a good chance to win, based on his ability alone.
The tournament will be streamed live on Twitch beginning at 12 PM EST on Tuesday.
