Our Team has been undefeated from the beginning in Guilded and we are placed on the top 3 Teams on the leaderboard. I will get with the Scrim Team Managers and see if we can schedule more of these for us to play. It is a create way to practice. The best part is you can even create your own custom map to play in Creative. So go make a map we can Scrim on for Ranks. The best Creative Map will be featured on our Website and we will use it to Scrim on for the weekends.
Since we are Striving to accommodate to the needs to all platforms, we were missing out on Switch/Mobile. It will not be our priority at the moment as our Competitive Scrim Teams Tier 3 and Tier 4 need to get prepared for our big eSports Tournament coming up in a couple months time. We will have a Scrim Team Leader who will handle the Mobile/Switch Side of things and he will be trained accordingly.
On another note, we are still looking for a community that better fits our Rules and Guidelines. We need our Older Members to really Step up and Set a Proper example for the New Recruits. It looks like we will be getting a new better wave of recruits as this wave not many are making the cut as very few even attempted to obey our required rule #1 along with posting an introduction on the forum yet even make an account. Those members will be removed accordingly as they violated our TOS that they agreed to obey when signing into the Clan on their trial period. Those members know who they are and you still have a chance to change it and obey our few rules we require. Not doing so immediately will unfortunately result in your removal from the Clan and you will be replaced by someone who can abide by the few easy tasks we ask our members to abide by in order to maintain a Clan with High expectations as we do.

LIMITED TIME MODE:
Welcome to The Getaway! In this mode, players will race to find a Jewel and take it to a getaway van before everyone else to win the match!
Jewels can be found in special supply drop safes, located along the edge of the first storm circle. The safes take a long time to open, so make sure the area is clear before attempting to claim a Jewel!
Four Jewels will be in play on the map at all times. If a player escapes with a Jewel or one is lost in the Storm, a new Supply Drop will bring a replacement.
Four total getaway vans will be on the map, three that arrive early in the match and one more that shows up near the end.
The goal is to find or steal a Jewel and take it to one of the vans in order to secure a Victory Royale.
Once they arrive, Safe drops and getaway vans will be visible on the map at all times.
When a Jewel is picked up, it will be visible on the map to everyone for 30 seconds.

Thanks to Fortnite’s Creative Mode, private scrims are now available! Guilded’s Fortnite Scrims are 4v4 Team Deathmatch – so get your squad together and jump into Creative Mode for some high-intensity custom matches!
Before you start
Before you begin, there’s just a few things to do:
Make sure everyone on your squad has access to Creative Mode
Make sure your party leader has created a complete battle-ready map on one of their Creative Mode Islands. If you don’t have one ready yet, just throw together something balanced and simple (we’ll have official maps as soon as Epic allows it!).
Make sure you’ve added the opposing team leader to your Friends list so that both teams can join their opponents’ Creative sessions.
While some rules will be established between the party leaders prior to the beginning of the match, there’s a few that every most scrims should consider following:
Game mode: Team Deathmatch (Eliminations)
Best of 3
Map #1: Team A chooses a custom Island map
Map #2: Team B chooses a custom Island map
Map #3: (if needed) whichever team had more total eliminations (Maps #1 + Map #2) chooses a custom island map.
Additional rules, such as match length, weapon selection, and spawn type should be negotiated between party leaders before the event. While there are no rules for map layout and weapon placement, try to keep your map fair for both teams. Keep in mind that the ability to scrim on Custom islands is new, and these matches are for practice and for fun. Your team will be rated based on sportsmanship after the match
