Professional Fortnite player Bogdan, 21, died while attending the Fall Skirmish finals, according to a statement from his teammate at the TwitchCon tournament, Dominik ‘RazZzero0o’ Beckmann.

According to RazZzero0o’s post on TwitLonger, the Swedish Fortnite star had gone to bed after the conclusion of the Skirmish with plans to explore San Jose, California the next day, but passed away overnight.


“When I woke up next day and tried to move his arm because it was on my side of the bed I noticed that he was already gone,” explained Beckmann. “I only got to know him for such a short amount of time and he already secured himself a big place in my heart. I will never forget about you Bogdan.”

RazZzero0o, a player for G2 Esports, also explains that he did not originally report the news out of respect for Bogdan’s family and friends, stating that they deserved to hear it in person and not over the internet.


Bogdan was clearly a popular figure in the European Fortnite community. Fellow Swede, Rasmus ‘Rasmusenn’ Wiklundh, described him as one of the most hard-working players in the scene with a big heart.

“You always wished me luck before every tournament I played,” said the Method player on Twitter. “Mad respect for you, you will always have a gigantic place in my heart, all my thoughts and prayers goes to his family and friends.”

The sad news comes just one week after Bogdan Akh and RazZzero0o secured an 18th place finish and $10,000 at the TwitchCon tournament in San Jose, California.


According to RazZzero0o, he and Bogdan went through a great deal of stress ahead of the Fall Skirmish finals, practicing every day for over two months and travelling to the US for the first time, but qualifying for the final of the event made it “literally the best trip ever.”

A petition has been started by Kevin Sundqvist in an attempt to get a ‘Back To Lobby’ emote added to Fortnite. According to the petition, this was a phrase that Bogdan used regularly after eliminating an opponent in-game.

Our thoughts are with Bogdan’s friends and family at this difficult time.

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.

  • FNCS Week 2: October 16 – October 18

The first day of each week will be an open qualifier. If you make the top 33 teams, you’ll be invited to play in the next two days for a chance to make it to the Finals.


FNCS isn’t the only competition coming to Fortnite Season 4. Weekly Cash Cups for Solos and Trios will be returning, while the Dreamhack Online Open (Solo) will also take place across NA and Europe.

With players set to earn up to $111,000 for winning the whole tournament, you can rest assured that there will be plenty of action when the action kicks off.
