Jérémy “4zr” Dang, Alexandre “Andilex” Christophe, Evan “DRG” Depauw, and Howard “Noward” Castiaux won Week 1 of the European Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS). The squad put together an impressive performance. They won two out of six games to capture first place. This week kicked off an exciting round of qualifying for Fortnite squads. Qualifiers last four weeks with the Season Finals taking place on Dec. 6 – 8.
In Europe, the top 10 teams from each week advance to the Season Finals. Week 1 welcomed the initial qualifiers. Jimmy “Ritz” Christensen, “beehive,” Theo “crue” Ferrer, and Moussa “chapix” Faour finished in second place. They fell just three points short of the winners. Either way, their squad qualified along with eight other teams.
4zr, Andilex, DRG, and Noward won the first game in the Week 1 FNCS EU Finals. They eliminated nine players on their way to victory. The win gave this squad the lead and they proceeded to hold off any challengers. In game three, 4zr, Andilex, DRG, and Noward popped off for the biggest victory of the day. They racked up 16 eliminations on the way to victory. After that, the team held a commanding lead and never let go. The squad finished with 81 total points.
In second, Ritz, beehive, crue, and chapix barely missed victory. They were the most consistent team through the final round in Week 1. The team received placement points in every game besides one. Ultimately, they had an opportunity to claim first place in the sixth game. In the final game, Ritz, beehive, crue, and chapix finished in second with 12 eliminations. A win and one more elimination would have given them enough points to win Week 1. Regardless, they qualified for the Season Finals and played extremely well.
Each week in Europe, squads battle through three separate rounds. The final round determines which teams advance. The top 10 teams of that final round qualify for the Season Finals. Here are the top 10 for the week:
