The Fortnite Champion Series is almost over. Week 4 both saw surprises and met expectations. The East region saw a new trio take the top spot. On the other hand, the same teams dominated the West region. Each week the stakes rise. In NAE, a trio from Oceania took first place. Chélan “zoreh” Sherman, Abdullah “Parpy” Khudeish, and Jahlyn “Jahlyn” Evernden flew over to boot camp in North America. In Week 4, they achieved first place in a very competitive region. Then Reza “Symetrical” Ebrahimi Manie, “Leno“, and Shane “EpikWhale” Cotton won the NAW region. Both teams had a considerable lead over the respective second-place teams.
