FNCS: CHAPTER 2 – SEASON 4
Regarding FNCS for the season 4 Epic said,
“The Fortnite Champion Series returns, is your Trio ready? We continue to iterate on the format, drawing on some of the learnings that came from last season’s experimental format. This season, the final round of each Weekly Qualifier will feature the same 33-team group playing over two days, and for the Grand Finals we’re introducing a new Wildcard Match for determining the last qualifying team from the Group Stage!
We’ll be keeping an eye on in-game performance and the impact of various new gameplay elements. We’ll make sure to confirm which will be present in Competitive playlists before the FNCS season begins. Our enhanced viewer site at watch.fortnite.com also continues to evolve as we continue with our official broadcast, supported by Twitch Drops for viewers on that platform.”
