Plenty of surprises everywhere
Fortnite Champion Series Chapter 2 – Season 2 Final Results are out
Plenty of surprises defined the grand final of the Fortnite Championship Series. Fortnite’s biggest tournament of the season concluded over the weekend with a series of events across all seven competitive regions.
After four weeks of qualifiers and a three-day weekend event that lasted long into the night, the Fortnite Champion Series, or FNCS for short, has concluded. The biggest competitive event of the season brought the best players to determine who the best PC and console duos are for each of the seven competitive regions.
Unfortunately, players found out that they had more than each other to cope with, as server issues plagued many of the matches. With that said, here are the champions in the more competitive PC division:
Europe: Andilex and Nayte
The French duo of Alexandre “Andilex” Christophe of Team MCES and Nathan “nayte” Berquigno of LeStream Esports ended the tournament with a convincing win.
The pair has been impressively consistent throughout the FNCS, winning a qualifying spot in each of the four weeks, then followed it up with winning heat 2 of the finals weekend before topping the chart at the grand finals.
There, they faced stiff competition, winning with only a five-point lead over Serbians Aleksa “Queasy” Cvetkovic and Nikola “TruleX” Krudulj. Queasy and TruleX took the first Victory Royale of the finals and had consistently good placements since but it was not enough to wrest victory away from the Frenchmen.
Tournament favorites David “aqua” Wang and Klaus “Stompy” Konstanzer had two Victory Royales but it was only enough for fourth place.
NA East: Zayt and Saf
Meanwhile, on the Eastern NA servers, the famous duo of Williams “Zayt” Aubin of Team NRG and Rocco “Saf” Morales secured victory in a very competitive series.
The first place changed hands several times until Zayt and Saf put on a clinic in the last game to secure the Victory Royale alongside eight eliminations.
When the smoke cleared, they were five points ahead of the previous leaders Noam “Megga” Ackenine and Daniel “Dubs” Paul Walsh, both of FaZe Clan. Just a point behind was the standout duo of the season, Knight and RogueShark.
Na West: Rehx and EpikWhale
Brodie “rehx” Franks of 100Thieves and Shane “EpikWhale” Cotton of NRG Esports secured the top spot in the region.
Rehx has been one of the best players on the server for a while but we also got to see just how good EpikWhale is – doubly impressive considering his recent switch from a keyboard and mouse to a controller.
The pair finished the tournament with a 13-point lead on runners-up Baackup and CinxZ and a whole 20 points ahead of the third place duo of Diego “Arkhram” Lima, also of 100 Thieves, and Andrew.
Oceania: Jynx and kquid
The region saw one of the worst examples of how stability impacted the tournament when scoreboard leaders mralex1 and Τuii were unable to start the decider game and ended up fourth.
In their absence, Ryley “Jynx” Linde of Renegades and Kai “kquid” Eaton climbed to the top with a Victory Royale and six eliminations.
Brazil: Pulga and Mojak
After winning a place in the finals in each of the four qualifying weeks, Team Vikings’ duo of Thales “Pulga” Henrique and Bryan “Mojak” Viegas stood tall when it mattered the most.
The pair won one Victory Royale, which together with their 28 eliminations – the most of any team in the finals – gave them the first place with 55 points.
The runners-up – B4stardos e-Sports’ spitflow and Brunao – had 27 eliminations but despite some very deep runs, they never managed to take the VR.
Asia: Ryle of ASF and WR.りむるだぅw
Japanese duos occupied all three top spots in the Asia finals, with Ryle of ASF and WR.りむるだぅw holding strong in the finals.
The pair totaled chart-topping 28 eliminations, which alongside their one Victory Royale gave them a comfortable lead in the charts.
Middle East: Souriano and Unit
In the grand finals of the Middle East region, 25-Esports’ Souriano and Wiz eSports’ Unit made it clear they were the best around with a record-setting 71 points.
Congratulations to all the winners!
