We bet the prize pool did not evade your eyes. But remember, as Dumbledore said in Goblet of Fire, “If chosen, you stand alone.” So, without further ado, let us get right to the details.

Fortnite solo FNCS drops this August

One major notable difference this series has is that, unlike the usual format of the Fortnite Champion Series, all the rounds will be played on a single day. Earlier, there would be 4 separate weekends for each qualifier, which has now been brought down to two consecutive weekends: 1st through 2nd August, and 8th through 9th August. The timings for each round will be different, and as follows:

  • Opens: 12-2 PM
  • Semis: 3-5 PM
  • Finals: 6-9 PM

In addition to this, the tournament will not be having cross-play. Rather, FNCS will use a two-track system that will separate PCs from consoles.

Note that the scoring system is unified for all regions and players until the 75th position will be receiving points. Each Victory Royale will grant you 14 points, the 2nd position will grant you 11 points, and the 3rd position will grant you 10 points. After that, the points will be granted as follows:

  • 4th – 5th: 9 points
  • 6th – 10th: 8 points
  • 11th – 15th: 7 points
  • 16th – 20th: 6 points
  • 21st – 25th: 5 points
  • 26th – 30th: 4 points
  • 31st – 40th: 3 points
  • 41st – 50th: 2 points
  • 51st – 75th: 1 point

As for advancements to the ‘semis’ stage in the tournament, the parameters will be region-specific. From semis to finals, not anymore. For the NAE and the European Union, the top 3000 players will get to advance to the semis. For the NAW and BR regions, the top 2000 will advance to the semis and the top 1000 players from Oceania, Middle-East, and Asia. The top 100 players in the semis will advance to the finals irrespective of region. The top 50 in the finals will automatically qualify for the heat stage, along with the top 200 consistent players without a top 25 placement.
