ESTNN recaps the third and final FNCS Chapter 2 - Season 6 Qualifier.
The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) in Season 6 has reached the end of its qualifying period. For the last three weeks, players across the game’s seven server regions have worked hard to accumulate series points and perhaps even secure a top-three finish, which would push them directly to the Grand Finals. It was arguably the most intense stretch of preliminary rounds in Fortnite history, given the high stakes.
Week three was the last opportunity for teams to qualify for the FNCS Semi-Finals or even the Season 6 Finals with a strong enough effort. Only 21 of those seats remained, and the teams who didn’t claim one will need to fight through heats. Chapter 2 - Season 6 is nearing the end and we’re in for some fireworks. Let’s see how the top competitive teams in each region performed in crunch time.
— Fastroki (@fastroki) May 9, 2021
The entirely German trio of Fastroki, Pizza and Ardit finally realized their potential after tough outings in the first two weeks. Their week three performance included a Victory Royale in game two and 41 total eliminations over six matches. The three players reached an impressive 198 points, and they won’t have to fight through the Semi-Finals.
Second place went to the complete Russian team of freemok, Wulfee and 97Default, who accumulated 192 points. Their impressive six-game effort yielded a massive 45 eliminations and a Victory Royale in the fourth match. Three significant double-digit elimination matches set them apart from the rest and earned them a well-deserved seat in the Season 6 Finals.
After a heartbreaking fourth-place result last week, Floki, Clèment and Decyptos returned in the final qualifier with no fear. Their consistency has defined them this season, culminating with a third-place finish in the 11th hour. The all-France trio managed 35 eliminations and the highest average placement of any other team. The EU finals are shaping up magnificently.

Two talented NA East trios went toe-to-toe in week three and it made for arguably the most entertaining conclusion of any region. As game six drew to a close, C9 nosh, nut and chukky stood triumphant. They did so in style with three Victory Royales and 44 eliminations. On top of taking third in the last Trio Cash Cup, these three NA East players move into the Season 6 Finals.
Elite Esports players Narwhal, Crunchy and Zlem matched the week three winners in intensity but just fell short. This trio grabbed themselves two game wins and 37 eliminations in what was an equally impressive performance. They will join nosh and company in the Season 6 Finals, where some other talented teams are waiting.
Despite first and second place taking the spotlight, the ultra-consistent trio of SEN Aspect, XPRT Cazz and OA Whofishy did just enough to earn the third and final qualifying spot. They managed 35 eliminations and no Victory Royales en route to 158 points. The plot is thickening in NA East ahead of the grand finale.

— 100T FALCONER (@Falconerrr) May 10, 2021
The night finished strong with the NA West region, where three top teams secured their spot in the Season 6 Finals. In first were the team of 100T Falconer, XTRA Reet and pure chris with 188 points. Their six matches produced 34 eliminations and three top-three finishes in what was a display of consistency. They’ll be a team to look out for in the finals.
Glace, clst domo and pure insightful landed in second with 176 points. They have been trending in the right direction for the last few weeks and finally reached a top-three finishing position. Thirty-eight eliminations and an average placement of 9.00 helped them achieve a high finish.
Bloom Riversan, NorCal Nathan, and 5G Nathaniel found themselves in third after six matches and 176 points. They managed 34 eliminations and no Victory Royales. One fun fact of note is that none of the top three trios won a game. Nonetheless, they will all bypass the difficult FNCS Semi-Finals.
