Ninja hosts Fortnite tournament at Microsoft’s London store

Streaming celebrity Richard Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins was the face of a Fortnite tournament in London.

He hosted the community event with UK caster Daniel Falcone (pictured, left), who has experience with Ninja’s Night Shift events, Hearthstone esports, Method’s Race to World First and more.

The winner of the Fortnite tournament in London – awesomemo – received a one-of-a-kind Ninja-themed Xbox One signed by the streamer himself.

The final standings were as follows:

Ninja made a big move from Amazon’s Twitch livestreaming platform to Microsoft’s Mixer earlier this year. He has 22.4m subscribers on YouTube and 31.6m views on Mixer so far. He was the number one streamer on Twitch for quite some time.

Ninja also took part in an Adidas promotion in London a few days ago, where he met David Beckham:

It’s good to see such a huge name in the world of gaming, and specifically Fortnite, in the UK. We have some top talent in the game – two UK players finished in top positions in the Fortnite World Cup earlier this summer.

Microsoft opened its London shop on Oxford Circus in the summer. It sells a range of devices and allows customers to book appointments with staff and get their devices repaired.

The tech giant recently began running community esports activities at its London store. It hosts tournaments every week at different locations.

Earlier this month, Microsoft held a Sea of Thieves – Battle for London event with the winner receiving a gold-plated Xbox One X. It seems that Microsoft is offering Xbox goodies as prizes, rather than cash prizes for now.
