"We're still waiting for the competition announcement" wrote Skite, resigned. That was at the launch of Chapter 2 Season 2 of Fortnite, two weeks ago. The 7th best player in the world must be eagerly awaiting it, because nothing has changed since then. As a consolation prize, there are Hype Nites — online tournaments with no prizepool nor stakes.

The lack of competition would be due to server problems. It must be said that it wasn't uncommon to see huge server lags during certain professional tournaments. When the last zones were stacked, players complained about heavy FPS drops and sometimes even freezes. Players will have to be patient. More a plus than a minus, since they could hope to play their next competitions in the best possible conditions.
