SypherPK wants World Cup player banned for “unsportsmanlike conduct”

Popular Twitch streamer, Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan, reported an enemy player in his Fortnite World Cup qualifying game for “unsportsmanlike conduct.”

There have already been numerous players called into question over the duration of the qualifying weeks, with bans being issued for players caught ‘teaming’ with others.


The Luminosity Gaming star, SypherPK, had his own experience with an opponent looking to unfairly put other players at a disadvantage while he was live streaming on Twitch, attempting to qualify for the New York event.

Epic GamesFinal results for Week 8 of the NA-West Qualifiers saw SypherPK come in 4th place overall.

Sypher shared a clip of him replaying the battle between him and the enemy, in which the player built himself in a 1×1 box and then blew himself up using dynamite, purely to deny SypherPK the elimination points.


“This is against the rules because you are expected to play to the best of your abilities, doing this is not allowed.”

He then specified that the rules only applied to the Fortnite Battle Royale qualifiers and that doing this in a regular game does not constitute a ban, saying, “this is against the terms of service of the world cup… this is specific rules for the world cup that does not allow this type of game play.”

Sypher followed up by explaining that, although this conduct had no effect on their placing in the grand scheme of things, it was worth making an example of it, as to prevent any further situations like this: “We were not rewarded a point for that, not that it would have made a difference, we didn’t qualify or anything.”


SypherPK and his duo, WBG Ranger, ended up finishing their week 8 finals run in 4th place, missing out on the lone qualification spot for the NA-West region, which was won by the Ghost Gaming duo of Sean and Aydan.

The remaining unqualified players will have only 2 more weeks to secure their spot in the Finals, which takes place on July 26 in New York and will give those a chance to compete for their share of the massive $30 million prize pool.

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.
