FaZe Clan Fortnite sensation, Kyle ‘Mongraal’ Jackson, has revealed his teammates ahead of next season’s Fortnite Championship series, with World Cup winner David ‘Aqua’ Wang set to join the roster.

Following the announcement that the standard trios format will be removed from competitive play moving into Season 11, Epic Games revealed the new four-man squad composition coming to the Fortnite Championship Series

Subsequently, trios have been advised to promptly find a fourth member should they wish to compete in next season’s competitive series. On the flip side of the coin, existing squads with a duo core may be seek to join forces with another duo, in a bid to seamlessly merge into the four-man format.

BBC NewsMongraal is the most successful British Fortnite pro.

An immediate shuffle materialized following the Fortnite World Cup, with perhaps the most shocking announcement coming when duo champs, Emil ‘nyhrox’ Bergquist Pedersen and Austrian-native Aqua split, with the Austrian joining forces with fellow countrymen Thomas ‘Tschinken’ Hörak and Klaus ‘Stompy’ Konstanzer.

Amid the ‘rostermania’ that ensued, Mongraal has parted ways with long-time partner, Dmitri ‘mitr0’ Van de Vrie, following their 6th place finish at the Fortnite World Cup and a mixed bag of placements with Benjy ‘Benjyfishy’ David Fish in trios. 

Thus, leaving the British pair and Austrian trio with a dilemma of who to cut ahead of the forthcoming format change.

Indeed, it is Tschinken who has been dropped from the roster, meaning that both duos have joined forces in a bid to dominate during next season’s Fortnite Championship Series.

Aside from the cut-throat nature of the decision, Jackson took to Twitter to state that “there is no bad blood, no hate between anyone at all. We all felt this was right for us…” before going on to say: “Trust me, I wouldn’t leave mitr0 in a bad position — he will have a god squad.”

Evidently, the squad will pose a threat, with Benjy, Stompy and Mongraal all placing within the top 25 at the Fortnite World Cup: Solos event, and Aqua notoriously being crowned Duos champion. 

All that remains to be seen is where exactly Tschinken and mitr0 end up once the dust has settled.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.
