The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) came back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans had been clamoring to see. With the tournament now in the books, here’s everything you’ll need to catch up on all of the action.

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

From the early qualifying stages to the Grand Final showdown, each major region had plenty to play for. If you missed any of the games from across the season of competition, we’ve got you covered with the full results below.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returned to the Trios format that had 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 was 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 featured three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who were 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.

2021’s run for the best players and teams within the CSGO space has already begun. With some fierce competition, is Benjamin “blameF” Bremer able to swoop in and stop Complexity gaming from falling?

With BLAST Premier’s Global Finals just around the corner, Richard Lewis & Chad ‘SPUNJ’ Burchill discuss the top talking points going into one of CS:GO’s biggest events. The pair delve into the nightmare scenario Complexity find themselves in with Jakob ‘JUGi’ Hansen standing in for the injured Valentin ‘poizon’ Vasilev.

The two sit down and debate whether Team Vitality will make quick work of Complexity, or if BlameF’s struggling side will shock Mathieu ‘ZywOo’ Herbaut and co, also touching on Team Liquid’s new signing and Na’Vi’s form going into the event.

BLAST’s event is huge for the CSGO scene, and Complexity’s current struggles are sure to become apparent during the event. With a phenomenal roster of teams that are playing for the win in 2021’s first major event, AWPer poizon recently underwent emergency surgery on December 18th, 2020. Unable to compete, how will the team fare without the vital piece of the team’s puzzle?

In comparison, Vitality had a great end to the year, even monetarily holding the top 1 spot before Astralis was able to get ahead in the last week of 2020’s competitive season. Winning IEM Beijing, the team is in an incredibly sweet spot that will no doubt provide some fantastic plays.

Our preview also goes in to cover in further detail Gabriel ‘FalleN’ Toledo joining Liquid, NAVI possibly starting BLAST with Bruno ‘bit’ Lima, and G2 as an upcoming dark horse to watch out for.
