100 Thieves Fortnite World Cup duo Davis ‘Ceice’ McClellan and Hayden ‘Elevate’ Krueger are one of the game’s most popular partnerships and in an episode of the Selfmade podcast they revealed how they spent their winnings.

Ceice and Elevate finished in third during the Fortnite World Cup back in July which meant they came with $1.8 million to be split between the two players.

That’s a lot of money for anyone, but especially so for a pair of players who are only just getting started in their esports careers.

WSOECeice and Elevate are no strangers to winning tournaments.

In an appearance on Selfmade with Nadeshot, the two pro players revealed just what they did with their massive earnings from the World Cup.

Ceice said everyone that came out to the event to support him received $1,000 each to spend on anything they wanted, which equated to about $10,000.

Once he came home, he said he bought a completely new streaming setup, which he showed off in a video on his YouTube channel. Overall, it came out to around $21,000 spent right off the bat.

Elevate, on the other hand, didn’t have much to say about his spending, but he did have some potential dating tips to give, such as why you have to notice if a girl changes her profile picture.

“If she changes her profile picture, if you don’t notice the change in the profile picture, that is bad,” he explained around the 3:40 mark. “That means you’re not looking at her profile page. You’re looking at other girls’ profile pages.”

With Ceice’s spending of $21,000 out of his $900,000 in earnings, provided they split the winnings equally, he still has a lot more to fall back on.

The two players still compete together in tournaments so those winnings won’t be drying up any time soon as long as Fortnite keeps holding events.

It’s not all good news for the 100 Thieves Fortnite scene, however, as on September 4, the team cut loose three of their players.

Kenith, SirDimetrious, and Blind all waved goodbye to the team as they search for another landing spot.

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

  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
