The weekly Trios Cash Cup events are an accurate indication of which professional teams are in good form. Although the playstyles can vary, the cream rises to the top when dealing with the world’s best Fortnite players. Another purpose of these tournaments is to allow each trio the opportunity to play fifteen high-level matches against different opponents. These teams need all the practice they can get with just a few weeks remain before the Fortnite Champion Series Grand Finals. Let’s take a deep dive in and see which trios performed well on the August 30th iteration of the Trios Cash Cup.


NA East

It is no surprise to see Zexrow, calculator and MackWood atop the leaderboard. This trio is quite possibly the best we have seen since the introduction of this format. These three players handled the competition with 128 eliminations and three Victory Royales. Zexrow additionally pulled off an unfathomable one versus six against the likes of Cloak, Pika and 72hrs. No other team really came close to their amount of eliminations or points.

FaZe Dubs, Rogue Eclipase and KhanadainNorCal took second place for the NA East region. They amassed a respectable eighty-three eliminations on top of three Victory Royales. Dubs is a player to keep an eye on as he has proven successful in almost every trio he plays with.

Recent Fortnite Champion Series qualifiers, zyfa, NRG Zayt and Ghost Saf made another appearance in the top ten. Over thirteen matches they compiled a total of 92 eliminations and two Victory Royales. They will be looking to build off of this performance as the FCS continues.

We have officially arrived at the point where FaZe Mongraal, mitr0 and NRG benjyfishy are nearly unstoppable. It is a rare occurrence when three players manage an insane total of 161 eliminations.

Other notable names up top include World Cup Champion, COOLER aqua, along with Stompy and Tschinken of Eleven Gaming. This trio finished with 184 points. Contributing factors to this finish included 112 eliminations and four Victory Royales. They finished in third place for their efforts.
