Esports organization FaZe Clan are undergoing a mutual split with Dennis ‘Cloak‘ Lepore, coming directly on the heels of his failure to qualify for the Fortnite World Cup.

Following Turner ‘Tfue‘ Tenney’s tumultuous split with FaZe, Cloak appears to be the next high-profile exit from the Fortnite roster. 


There were a lot of hints to Cloak’s eventual exit, from him supporting Tfue through all the drama and letting him move in with him, but an official split was never announced until now.

FaZe ClanFaZe is losing two of its highest profile Fortnite pros in Tfue and Cloak.

The news was confirmed by FaZe Clan on Twitter where the organization said it is in agreement with Cloak to work towards the future departure from the team.


However, Cloak might not be going solo as FaZe also reveals they are open to transfer proposals from other organizations as they explore all the options. 

Another high-profile FaZe Clan Fortnite player who didn’t qualify for the World Cup is Nick ‘NICKMERCS‘ Kolcheff, who recently came on with FaZe following his departure from 100 Thieves.

With Nick in and Tfue and Cloak out, there has been a lot of shaking up with FaZe’s Fortnite roster. Cloak is currently the team captain of the Fortnite team so someone else will have to step into this role following his departure. 


Nate Hill, Funk, Megga, and Dubs will all be representing FaZe representing in the World Cup despite the bigger names not qualifying.

Cloak’s statement

Cloak is planning on giving a full statement on the situation during his stream on June 22.

“Going to make a statement later today on moving forward and explain a lot,” Cloak tweeted. “I love u all.”


One thing Cloak has confirmed is that Tfue’s departure had nothing to do with his exit.

During his stream, Cloak confirmed he has been trying to leave FaZe Clan for six months, before all of the Tfue drama surfaced, and revealed he had the same exact contract as Tfue with the same percentages.


He also shared some confusion about why they threw in the line about him being transferred.

“I don’t wanna be transferred, so I don’t know why they put that in there,” he said. “I’ve been trying to leave for the past six months before the whole Tfue thing came out. I just went with the more passive route. I with with the route of ‘Listen, I’m willing to work this out.”

He said he feels like FaZe is more comfortable in letting him go now that he didn’t qualify for the World Cup.

“They didn’t come to me before posting a TwitLonger, so it seems like now they are in agreement in letting me go because now I didn’t qualify for the World Cup it seems like,” he said.

We will keep you updated with Cloak’s departure from FaZe as more information becomes available.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.


With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.


As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.

  • FNCS Week 2: October 16 – October 18

The first day of each week will be an open qualifier. If you make the top 33 teams, you’ll be invited to play in the next two days for a chance to make it to the Finals.


FNCS isn’t the only competition coming to Fortnite Season 4. Weekly Cash Cups for Solos and Trios will be returning, while the Dreamhack Online Open (Solo) will also take place across NA and Europe.

With players set to earn up to $111,000 for winning the whole tournament, you can rest assured that there will be plenty of action when the action kicks off.
