The Fortnite Champion Series is in full swing, and Week Three provided even more trios securing their spot in the Grand Finals. This last installment of the FCS qualifying period did not go off without a hitch, however. Amidst heavy criticism, the Fortnite servers were, quite frankly, just not working on Saturday, August 31st. As per the typical format, the first two sessions were to take place on Saturday with finals taking place on Sunday. Unforeseen circumstances, such as a faulty party system and players unable to connect to servers, forced a change.
Eligible players instead would have to endure all three sessions on Sunday over an eleven-hour timeframe. The Fortnite competitors did not receive this news well, but multiple top names played out the competition nonetheless. It took an admirable amount of mental fortitude, but as we have seen over past weeks, many of the best players remained at the top. The list of qualifying trios for the FCS Grand Finals continues to grow.

Without much of a surprise, Envy bucke, SEN Animal and SEN Aspect topped the leaderboard this week. After finishing third last week, this trio put on an absolute elimination fest. In total, bucke, Animal and Aspect racked up 128 eliminations. To put that number in perspective, second-place only managed 83 eliminations. This performance included an eighteen elimination Victory Royale for the trio.
Other names inside the top eight include usual suspects SEN Bugha, RS clarityG and STRETCH. They ultimately took second place with three Victory Royales. Following that trio was Tempo CizLucky, LiquidChap and Liquid Vivid. This team won their last three matches down the stretch, vaulting them inside the top three in impressive fashion. Also just sneaking in the top eight was Ghost Dmo, Ghost Bizzle and HydraFN. After failing to qualify in the previous two weeks, this trio will now compete in the Grand Finals.

It was another week for Europe and another leaderboard dominated by Mongraal, mitr0 and benjyfishy. At this point, no surprises come out of this team as they consistently perform well alongside one another. Although they only managed one Victory Royale, the trio posted seventy-nine eliminations. This performance was good enough for second place, and the saga of the most dominant European trio continues.
Finishing in first this week was the team of Tschinken, Stompy and aqua. This trio has actively been lurking for the past several weeks. Seventy-seven eliminations and two Victory Royales later, the trio is now $96K USD wealthier and will participate at the Grand Finals. Other familiar names at the top are the likes of Airwaks, Nikof and Vato. All three of these European representatives previously participated in the Fortnite World Cup.

Gooboz, Link and worthy handled their competition over eight matches. Although already qualified, this trio continues to make an example of every other trio in the OCE region. These three players tallied 183 points overall, which included a whopping eighty-seven eliminations and six Victory Royales. This was undoubtedly one of the better single trio performances of the whole week. Second place went to fell leaderboard lurkers skyla, slaya and gheez.

Much like the Oceania region, Asia provided one team at the top of the list. With only four teams eligible to qualify for the final three geographical regions, the stakes are much higher. OPGG_FaxFox, T1 Sexyboy and NooB WoN impressed with 138 points and seventy-five eliminations to boot. No other trio came close in terms of points or eliminations in the Asia region. This trio will now play in the Grand Finals later this month.
