The next chapter in Fortnite esports will be the return of the Fortnite Champion Series. The FNCS are weekly events that happen online and anyone can participate. Last year, the FNCS was held during Season X, the last season in Fortnite Chapter 1. The events were based on trios. Teams competed in groups of three for a weekly prize, as well as to qualify for the finals. This year will be a little different. Instead of trios, the weekly events will only be for duos. Traditionally, having duos makes sense as many major Fortnite esports events are either for singles or duos.
When does the FNCS Chapter 2 Season 2 Start?
The FNCS will begin on March 20th and is opened to any players that reached the Champions League in “Arena” and enabled two-factor authentication on their accounts. Training simulations will begin today till March 15th.
This season, there will only be two tournaments; one for PC players and one for console/mobile players. Both tournaments will hold the same prize pools each week, as well as the semi-finals and finals. FCNS Duos can only be formed on the same player; for example, both players can only be on PS4.
There will be seven regions that players can compete in depending on their location:
- North American East
- North America West
- Asia Middle East
Weekly event prizes are different for each region which can all be found here.
