Find out who won SypherPK’s Fortnite tournament!
Three-hundred teams reached the finals of Fortnite’s first-ever SypherPK Cup. The tournament - created in honor of veteran content creator Ali “SypherPK'' Hassan - bolstered a $10K USD prize pool with a trios format specific to NA East servers. The two-round competition saw over 270K sign-ups, which speaks volumes for how respected SypherPK is in the competitive scene. Only 300 trios reached the finals, where first place would collect $2K USD. The last round featured SypherPK himself and top players such as MrSavage, Cented, Commandment, Zayt, Saf and many others, but only one could claim victory.

Slurpy Swamp residents Jahq, Acorn and Slackes, bounced back from two rough games early and ran the table in their final seven matches. These three players strung together an outstanding display, including two Victory Royales, 74 eliminations and 197 total points. That performance was good enough for the SypherPK Cup victory, netting them $2K USD to split evenly. This momentum will carry Jahq, Acorn and Slackes into this weekend’s FNCS Qualifier 2.
