The FNCS competitive circuit — which will be played this season in Duo — will start on March 21. The format is very similar to previous editions, except for the separation between PC and console players.

All you need to know about Fortnite Champion Series Chapter 2 Season 2

This competition brings together the best Fortnite teams. After a long lull in the Esports competition, Epic Games is back with the Duo format — probably one of the most popular in the community. These FNCS start on March 21 and will be played over four weeks of qualification, plus a weekend of final stages. Players will have direct and real-time access to their performances during the competition. It'll be necessary to reach the Champion League to unlock the FNCS tournaments.

Players will compete every weekend (on Saturday and Sunday) for cash and a qualification for the Grand Final of Chapter 2 Season 2. The best teams from each region will compete against each other at the end of this season (April 17-19) to be crowned Fortnite Champion Series Champions.

Significant Dates

Weekly Qualifying Sessions

  • March 21-22: 1st round
  • March 28-29: 2nd round
  • April 4-5: 3rd round
  • April 11-12: 4th round

Season Finals

  • April 17-19: semi-finals and final

PC & Consoles Split

During this FNCS season, the tournament will feature two lanes: one for PC players and another for console and mobile players. Each lane will offer the same rewards and its own champions. Keep in mind that in order to hopefully accomplish your mission, your partner must be in the same platform group as you. PC gamers can't team up with someone on console or mobile.

Sequence of Qualifying Sessions

For Round 1 of the applicable Weekly (“Round 1”), all members of an eligible Duos team (as determined by Epic in accordance with these Rules) must rank in the Champion League (Division I, II, or III) within Arena in their respective region by the start of such Weekly to be eligible to queue up and compete during their respective region’s Round 1 session window as listed in-game.

Each Round 1 session will last approximately three hours. Teams may participate in a maximum of ten matches during any Round 1 session. Teams will earn points based on the scoring system listed in Sections 2.5.2 and 2.5.3 (as applicable). Matches for a Round 1 session will count only if the match begins before that Round 1 session window closes. 

For clarity, players may only participate in a single region’s Weekly for any Round during Stage 1.

At the conclusion of Round 1 of the applicable Weekly, the top point earning teams from each server region will advance as set out in Section 2.5.5 and be able to queue up for Round 2 of such Weekly (“Round 2”). It will not be possible to enter Round 2 of a Weekly without ranking in a region’s top players during that Weekly’s Round 1.

For Round 2 of the applicable Weekly, players will compete in a single session during their respective region’s Round 2 session window as listed in-game. Each Round 2 session will last approximately three hours. Teams may participate in a maximum of ten matches during any Round 2 session. Teams will earn points based on the scoring system listed in Sections 2.5.2 or 2.5.3 (as applicable). Matches for a Round 2 session will count only if the match begins before that Round 2 session window closes.

At the conclusion of Round 2 of the applicable Weekly, the top point earning teams from each server region will advance as set out in Section 2.5.6 and be able to queue up for Round 3 of such Weekly (“Round 3”). It will not be possible to enter Round 3 of a Weekly without ranking in a region’s top players during that Weekly’s Round 2.

For Round 3 of the applicable Weekly, players will compete in a single session during their respective region’s Round 3 session window as listed in-game. Teams may participate in a maximum of six matches during any Round 3 session. For Round 3, the first match will start fifteen minutes after the session window begins.  Each Round 3 session will last approximately three hours, with a new match starting every thirty minutes. If a team fails to queue for the playlist and/or misses the start time for a given match, it will be considered to have finished in last place with zero eliminations for that missed match. Teams will earn points based on the scoring system listed in Sections 2.5.2, 2.5.3, or 2.5.4 (as applicable). Matches for a Round 3 session will count only if the match begins before that Round 3 session window closes.

At the conclusion of Round 3 of the applicable Weekly, the top point earning teams from each server region will advance as set out in Section 2.5.7 and be able to queue up for the second stage of the Event (“Stage 2” or “Season Finals”) and/or be awarded prizes as set out in Section 2.6. It will not be possible to enter the Season Finals without advancing from Stage 1 as set out in these Rules.

Additionally, the total series points awarded at the conclusion of Round 3 of the applicable Weekly will be added together across all four (4) weeks of competition. The highest cumulative point-scoring teams from each server region across all four Round 3 sessions that haven’t already advanced to Stage 2 will also advance to Stage 2 as listed in Sections 2.5.7 or 2.5.8 (as applicable); provided, however, that teams must have the same two players for each such Weekly in order for scores across those Weeklies to accumulate. For teams who both have already advanced to Stage 2 in a previous Weekly and are positioned on the Round 3 Leaderboard to advance to Stage 2 in one or more additional Weeklies, the additional advancement spot(s) will be removed and added to the final advancement count to be pulled from the Series Leaderboard at the conclusion of Week 4.
