FaZe Clan’s Fortnite Battle Royale stars have proven why they’re regarded as some of the best players on Earth at the PAX West Summer Skirmish tournament.
The $1.5 million event is the final installment of the Fortnite Summer Skirmish series and will conclude on September 3 when the final 99 solo contenders do battle in the final.
Included in those 99 players are all five of the FaZe men that entered: Tfue, Replays, Tennp0, Nate Hill and Jaomock.
The FaZe Clan Twitter account acknowledged that fact that all of their entered players had qualified for the finals in a series of Tweets, including one saying “5/5” with a picture of the professionals.
Each player had to go through a rigorous qualification stage. There were three qualifiers in total and only the top 33 players from each one made it through to the next stage. Luckily for FaZe fans, all five players succeeded with relative ease.
Unfortunately for fans of the team’s captain, Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore, the multi-time Friday Fortnite winner did not attend this particular competition.
While the ability of the FaZe players to all make it through the qualifiers is incredibly impressive, it is worth noting that one other organization has equaled their achievement.
Cloud9 will also have five players competing in Monday’s final - Hysteria, Topboy, Bandit, Criz and Blind will all be representing the organization on the final day after making it through the qualifiers.
Hysteria is a solo player for Cloud9, Bandit and Criz player for the Cloud9 Blue roster, and Topboy is the Swedish star of the Cloud9 White team.
