Fnatic has gotten off to a rocky start in the 2020 LEC Summer Split, but Oskar ‘Selfmade’ Boderek has asked fans not to give up on the team just yet, as there’s still a lot of League left to be played.

Despite winning their last match against Misfits, Fnatic is still sitting at 5-5 in the middle of the Summer Split table, which is definitely lower than some fans of the storied franchise were expecting.

Selfmade reassured fans in an interview with Dexerto that the team was doing everything it could to break out of the current funk and get back to their winning ways.

“Fnatic is a big org with a lot of fans and I’m grateful for every fan that cheers for us but, people, please take it easy,” Selfmade asked. “If you’re a Fnatic fan for many years, you know that this team has ups and downs and so far we’re on our down, but we’re getting back from it.”

Selfmade has been Fnatic’s go-to jungler since being added from SK Gaming in 2019.

Most of Fnatic’s troubles, according to the Pole, could be boiled down to poor drafts and the team trying to run comps that are simply just too complicated to easily work in the heat of battle.

“I think it was mostly draft issues, of course, I’m not putting all of them on Mithy right now because it’s not like the Coach is fully responsible with the draft, it’s mostly players – we share our opinions and we come to a conclusion together” he explained. “It’s mostly us players not understanding the game well at this point. We’re trying way too many champions at the same time and building up compositions that are way too hard to play”

As we mentioned Fnatic is currently sitting at an even 5-5 record right smack in the middle of the table, but they do have another chance to turn things around when they face Vitality (4-6) on July 18.

Whether Fnatic will be able to get over their draft issues and turn things around remains to be seen, but fans will definitely be looking for more than they’ve seen so far from their favorite squad.

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
