ESTNN breaks down all regional results from week one of FNCS Chapter 2 – Season 6.
Competitive Fortnite Battle Royale players across the game’s seven server regions have begun their quest toward supremacy in the latest Fortnite Champion Seres (FNCS) competition.
In its eighth iteration, the FNCS has solidified some of the world’s best players in a series of different formats and scoring systems. The year 2021 marked a significant shift in the landscape when Epic Games made trios the primary structure for all future Champion Series events.
Chapter 2 – Season 6 is the third consecutive trio FNCS. The community has seen many insanely touted players wield the in-game Axe of Champions, which only the seven regional winners collect. With $3M USD on the line and a place in Fortnite’s history books, let’s see how the first of three qualifiers played out in all server regions.
Veteran players Solary BlastR, Vitality Nikof and TrainH Alphaa claimed their first trio tournament victory when it mattered most after an impressive six-match marathon. Despite not earning a single Victory Royale, this entirely French team performed consistently well and compiled 35 eliminations, which led all other trios in the final round. Their average placement of 8.00 also played a significant factor in their tournament-winning showing. BlastR, Nikof and Alphaa are moving to the FNCS Season 6 Finals and have earned some welcomed rest.
AOS Nebs, Bubak and WaiZ held the lead going into the final match, but Bubak could not gather enough healing items in a challenging game-six predicament to secure the victory. Nonetheless, this trio followed up their third-place DreamHack Cash Cup Extra results with an FNCS runner-up just one week later. Nebs, Bubak and WaiZ join the French team in Grand Finals alongside third-place team VP JAMSIDE, CL Fury and Fortnite veteran Domentos.
A former Summer Skirmish winner, Latvian player Domentos seemingly vanish after Chapter 2 – Season 3 and is now back atop the leaderboard. Some notable names fellow outside of the top three, including Andilex, MrSavage and TaySon. They will rerun it next week in the second qualifier.
