Fortnite professional Dmitri ‘Mitr0’ Van de Vrie has issued an update on his future in competitive play with Team Atlantis amid his contract drama.

Back on September 16, the Fortnite community rallied in support of Mitr0 after two community members – Twitch streamer THump and YouTuber TheFortniteGuy – claimed he was stuck in a poor contract and that Team Atlantis wouldn’t let him go.


After players like Tfue, Bugha, Mongraal, and BenjyFishy all tweeted about the #FreeMitr0 movement, Team Atlantis finally responded by claiming that Mitr0 had a solid contract and it wasn’t at all like the social media rumors. However, since that statement on September 17, the Fortnite star has given fans an insight into his future.

Epic GamesMitr0 has competed at a number of Fortnite events and picked up a few successes.

On September 27, Mitr0 confirmed via his Twitter account that he had become a free agent and wanted to thank everybody for their support. 


“Officially a Free Agent now,” the young star posted. “Thank you to the fans, the community and all the day one supporters <3” Of course, members of the Fortnite community have congratulated him on the move even though his immediate future remains up in the air.

Just where Mitr0 goes from here remains to be seen but he certainly has the pedigree to claim a deal with any of the top teams in the game. 

As a player, the Dutchman has earned over $686,000 from tournaments – including a sixth-place finish in the Fortnite World Cup solos event. 


Since the end of the $30 million LAN tournament, he has dominated the Fortnite Champion Series in Europe, bagging a number of trios wins alongside BenjyFishy and Mongraal. 

However, with the Fortnite Championship Series switching to squads, mitr0 has departed that trio and will be looking for new teammates moving forward. It could all very well lead to him announcing his new organization, but we’ll just have to keep an eye on that.

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.
