ESTNN recaps the week two FNCS qualifier and highlights all teams moving onto the Season 6 Finals.
Competitive Fortnite players across seven worldwide server regions continued their quest toward the Axe of Champions in the Season 6 Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS). Week one produced some shocking results, but more importantly, 21 teams in total guaranteed themselves a spot in the Season 6 Finals. The massive $3M USD prize pool comes into play at that time, making the qualifier performances all the more critical than in past seasons.
Week two featured compelling storylines and intense matches, as expected. Teams put forth their best efforts to accumulate the ultra-important series points, flex dominance over a particular point of interest (POI) and hopefully finish inside the top three. At this stage, time is ticking down, and thousands of teams are vying for the same achievement. Let’s take a look at how all seven regions played out.

The European region produced an exciting finish and an astounding amount of points. Not a single team sat comfortably atop the leaderboard during the three-hour window. While LootBoy Queasy, Glorious TruleX and Wave Jurk3y established dominance early, the Russian trio of Kiryache32, Stormyrite and Gambit Toose stole the show in a decisive game six.
This team started strong and finished even stronger with a Victory Royale and second-place finish to close out the day for Europe. Their six-match effort included a win, 24 eliminations and an exceptional 6.17 average placement. Clutch is the perfect word to describe Kiryache32, Stormyrite and Toose, who are moving into the Season 6 Finals.
The all-Norweigan trio of Refsgaard, NVD Endretta and 100T MrSavage finally delivered on expectations in week two. After placing sixth last week, this squad accumulated 169 points with 34 eliminations. Their fifth match proved to be the defining performance as Refsgaard, Endretta and MrSavage combined for 14 eliminations and a second-place result.
Third place went to Flames FlowiS, kejseR and NotHellfire, who snagged 166 points and finished four points clear of fourth place. This team punched their ticket to the FNCS Finals with a Victory Royale in the last match. Europe never fails to deliver on the hype.

It should come as no surprise that the off-spawn conflict between Bugha’s trio and tahi’s trio dominated the impressions on Twitter. However, while those two teams battled it out over an in-game beef, the Chapter 2 - Season 4 Champions reigned supreme. Representing the ENDLESS esports team, Deyy, Mero and Reverse2k did what they do best in slaying their way to victory. With 163 total points, the former Axe of Champion holders compiled 31 eliminations and four top-five finishes en route to a first-place result.
Joining them in the Season 6 Finals are TrainH Saf, Liquid STRETCH and C9 Avery, who won the opening match of the week two finals. Their qualification required a game-five solo clutch by Stretch and a fifth-place finish in game six. They secured second place overall with 153 points. Despite a narrow finish, XPRT Dom, insight dusky and Spayde OT held on to third and will move straight to the FNCS Finals as a result.
Like Europe, NA East did not disappoint, and a total of nine teams have now locked up their place on the Battle Bass for May 29 and May 30.

XTRA kenshi, tsg favs and XTRA snacky own the record for most points accumulated in week two with 219 in total. They dominated the storylines and the competition in week two without breaking a sweat. Their six-March effort produced 41 eliminations and two Victory Royales. Game six was more of a victory lap as the three NA West talents are heading to the Season 6 Finals.
Second and third place came down to a duel between two teams. Pure Hyper, pearl and kloxic ultimately got the second-place nod with 167 points, whereas LITTLE, TEMPLE and zinqxz had 166. Several teams with high expectations fell below the crucial top three. They’ll have to rally in week three to lock up their spot in FNCS Grand Finals.

With 176 points in total, only three points separated them from hvt bathan, HVT Zedox and GLM sio, who finished 173.
