Fortnite: FNCS Invitational Week 1 Day 1 Results

Day one has come to a close for the FNCS Invitational. We take a look at the top performers.


Players across all seven regions loaded into the Battle Bus for the first-ever FNCS Invitational.

The competitors include past FNCS finalists, open qualifiers and multiple specialty invited players. Roughly 600 players will narrow themselves down to 300 after tomorrow concludes. Those top 300 will move into the second round. Keep in mind that a Reboot Round will go into effect after next weekend. Previously eliminated players will have another chance to find their way into the Grand Finals.

The FNCS Invitational format takes each player's total score over two days. That total will decide who will move to the next round. Unfortunately, we do not have the cumulative totals for the Middle East. Epic Games will hopefully provide an update at the end of tomorrow’s games. Until then, we will have to eagerly wait to see who all made it to round two. Let’s take a look at six of the seven competitive regions and how day one shook out in each.

Europe

Day one for Europe saw the solo resurgence of NRG benjyfishy, who played better than he has all season in solos. He put up 250 points over nine matches with 38 eliminations. Benjy was not ready to concede first place to a controller player. Speaking of which, top controller player Letshe followed closely behind benjyfishy with 233 points overall. Although the top-12 players have eclipsed 150 points, tomorrow’s matches will also count toward their cumulative scores. The top-300 players after tomorrow will move onto next week.

NA East

Commandment of Team SoloMid put on a clinic on day one against NA East’s best. He won three straight matches to close out day one. He early managed to double everyone else’s eliminations below him on the leaderboard. Commandment likely won’t need many more points tomorrow to move himself to week two. Console specialist nut finished a mere 99 points behind Commandment, but still surpassed the 200-point threshold. The top-12 below have put themselves in a stable position as they look to move into week two of the FNCS Invitational.

NA West

Bumboy put all NA West competitors on notice with four Victory Royales in just seven matches. He produced the best performances across all regions outside of Commandment overall with 288 points. Bumboy finished a full 42 points ahead of second and will likely see his way into the next round. Controller players NRG EpikWhale and wavyjacob also found their way into the top-10. The top 300 players after tomorrow will move into round two.
