Samsung is one of the clear leaders in mobile display tech, and its screens are found in a wide range of flagship devices including its own Galaxy phones and those of its biggest competitors like Apple. However, one of the biggest complaints about the Galaxy S9 is that looks virtually identical to last year’s device, a sentiment that arose largely due to the fact that Samsung didn’t do much to change up the S9’s screen. However, based on a number of leaks and rumors, that may not be an issue for Samsung’s next big phone, which could boast one of the most advanced mobile displays yet.

Psyonix said that it’s working “incredibly hard to ensure that it’s as intuitive, stable and polished as possible, before releasing it to the world.” When it arrives, RocketID will enable cross-platform parties and friend connections.
It would be easy to be confused about the name, but take note: this is not Friday Fortnite, the Keemstar-hosted Fortnite tournament that served as the first major professional Fortnite event.

The first one starts tonight, so read on for rules, timing, scoring and more.
