The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) saw a repeat winner in the North American East (NAE) region in Week 3. Williams “Zayt” Aubin, Rocco “Saf” Morales, Tyler “HighSky” Tereso, and Josh “Commandment” Roach won their second week of the FNCS. The squad won the first week by a huge margin, being one of the best performances that Fortnite has ever seen. Now, they came back for more in Week 3.
Similarly to the European region, NAE saw issues with players unable to enter games. The problem is then enhanced as even if only one player cannot join, the entire game does not count. Oftentimes, only one player does not enter. Then the other three players are left useless as the points they score do not count. Epic Games has yet to address the problems. These issues caused problems across multiple weeks and regions.
Another win for Zayt, Saf, HighSky, and Commandment
Dominating the first week was not enough for this squad. Zayt, Saf, HighSky and Commandment wasted no time getting started in Week 3 of FNCS. The squad won the first game and eliminated 12 players. Next, they went on to win the third game with 14 eliminations. Those two wins put them in a great position with 59 total points through the first three games. Then Zayt, Saf, HighSky, and Commandment did just enough in the remaining matches to secure the victory for the week. They ended with 73 total points.
In second place, a well-known squad of Turner “Tfue” Tenney, Dennis “Cloakzy” Lepore, “Khanada,” and Alex “Fiber” Bonetello fell just three points short. They played consistently and racked up eliminations to secure second place. The squad finished with 35 total eliminations and 36 placement points. They showed great balance during Week 3 of FNCS.
