Top Duos in the hunt
Acorn and jahq held the lead going into the final match but fell far too early in the last game. They ended with 239 points with 28 eliminations and no Victory Royales. Still, Acorn and jahq reminded everyone that they are one of the most formidable duos in the NA East region. The two players secured $9K USD for their efforts. Fortnite World Cup Champion Bugha and C9 Avery rounded out the top-three with 285 points, significantly short of the two teams who broke the 300-point mark.

With a handful of European teams making it into the NA East Grand Finals, some exciting story lines developed. First and foremost, several players took to Twitter yet again to discuss which region is superior. This argument stems from EU successes in NA East competitions and not vice-versa. The European duo of TaySon and Th0masHD finished 11th after six matches, and several others were not too far behind. Even some stream sniping accusations surfaced between the pair of Clix & Bizzle against Milan & Chapix.

Some suspect footage surfaced on Bizzle's stream, where European players Chapix and Milan were lurking in the shadows of Sweaty Sands. Both players sat behind a tree, waiting for Clix and Bizzle to rotate out and attacked them, which completely ruined their game. The EU versus NA discussion rages on as the two regions met yet again in an online tournament. Hopefully, another Fortnite World Cup will take place to settle these disputes correctly.
