Europe — TaySon Claims His Third FNCS Title
— Fortnite Competitive (@FNCompetitive) June 26, 2021
Guild Esports player Tai “TaySon” Starčič made a case for being perhaps the greatest of all time (GOAT) in competitive Fortnite after running through the European region. The now three-time FNCS winner made relatively easy work of the most impressive pool of players in Fortnite history. After a rough first game, TaySon rallied back with a vengeance.
He rifled off a Victory Royle, second and fifth over his next three matches, and capped off the day in style with a six-elimination win—his second of the day. The Slovenian phenom finished with 134 points, including 14 eliminations and two wins. TaySon’s FNCS All-Star Showdown win marked his third major title since Chapter 2 - Season 3 and he adds another $150K USD to his career earnings.
The only other player in striking distance of TaySon was rising star Veno, who put forth an admirable effort through all six matches. He managed 122 points despite not earning a Victory Royale and matched TaySon with 14 eliminations, securing an impressive $120K USD. Homyno airknn snuck into third and won $100K USD with a closing stretch of eighth, 14th and third.

NA East — PaMstou Shocks the World
— Fortnite Competitive (@FNCompetitive) June 27, 2021
The Canada-born free agent known in-game as “PaMstou” did the unthinkable. He triumphed over some legendary names, including FS casqer and BBG Khanada, in what came down to the last match. PaMstou remained consistent the entire day, with 13 total eliminations and one Victory Royale, but a 27th-place finish in the final game sealed the deal. He secured a life-changing $75K USD and the notoriety of being an FNCS Champion.
FS casqer was on the brink of victory in game six, but a fifth-place result left him just short. Regardless, he played exceptionally well with ten eliminations and a Victory Royale in match three. His last game vaulted him to second and won him $50K USD. BBG Khanada led for most of the day but had three rough matches coming home. Still, he managed yet another impressive solo result and $45K USD third-place prize.
- 1st: PaMstou - 104 points ($75K)
- 2nd: FS casqer - 97 points ($50K)

THEY DONT KNOW ME BROOOO 35k 💰💰💰 pic.twitter.com/BxhKjeVfJ4
— Riversan (@riversan) June 27, 2021
Regional legend River “Riversan'' Handley returned to form to round out the competition. He grabbed the lead over some of NA West’s most notable names and held onto it to the end. Riversan’s day began with a third-place followed by a Victory Royale respectively in games one and two. The former Team Liquid player did just enough to stave off surging competitors Frapai, EpikWhale and Reet. Riversan ended with 110 points, a Victory Royale and 14 eliminations, netting him $135K USD.
Frapai had a legitimate chance to win heading into the final match. He had two wins in his pocket and a top-ten finish likely would’ve clinched the tournament. The underrated NA West pro settled for second on the leaderboard after finishing 58th in the last game. The prize of $25K USD is not a bad consolation.
Top controller player XTRA Reet found his way into the top three with 98 points. He managed 15 eliminations across six matches—the second-highest mark of the region. Reet earned himself a solid $22.5K USD. The always-impressive EpikWhale landed in fourth with 88 points, securing him $17.5K USD.
