This isn't the first time Epic Games has taken Fortnite players to court over cheating accusations; the developer notably sued two individuals past year over using and distributing cheats for the game, though it was later discovered that one defendant was a minor.

Epic Games has also gone after a second YouTuber by the name of Colton Conter or "Exentric". By selecting Events, you'll see all of the tournaments that are coming up, along with their scheduled dates and start times. Players can earn points by either achieving high placements or eliminating multiple opponents. Tournament scores should've been determining the players that people were matched against, but Epic Games said it's working on fixing this after it didn't work as intended.

These new Tournaments will be available for everyone to play, and Epic's official announcements page describing them a chance to "compete directly alongside the pros for prizes and glory". As you play, you (or your team if you're playing in a duos or squads tournament) will earn points based on match ranking and eliminations. While that speed boost is active, you'll be able to smash through buildings and send other players flying if you hit them, so making good use of your accumulated boost could turn a battle in your favor.
