Another week of exciting play in the Fortnite World Cup 2019. The first weekend of the Duos competition had surprise standouts and typical dominance. A duo of Benjy “Benjyfishy” Fish and Martin “MrSavageM” Andersen and another duo of Kyle “Mongraal” Jackson and Dmitri “Mitr0” Van de Vrie finished on top of the EU region. David “LeNain” Bois and Tyler “Tyler15” Crews headline the NA East qualifying teams. The mechanical skills were impressive. The teamwork was even better. After just two weeks, it is quite obvious why these big names were so highly regarded.
Check out the full rebroadcast of the event if you missed it.
Even without qualifying, teams showed out. There are so few spots available that players and teams will have great days without qualifying. First, there was a mobile player who made it to the finals on Monday. His performance proved that no matter the platform, anyone has a chance. Secondly, a controller player, Aydan “Aydan” Conrad, finished in fifth in NA West with his partner Sean “Sean” Close. Finally, Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf came within two points of qualifying for Duos after his performance last week. Klaus “Stompy” Konstanzer was able to lock in another spot in New York this weekend. Stompy was the top player in the EU solos last week.
The players’ names in bold have qualified for the Fortnite World Cup Finals in New York City. The number of teams that qualified varies by region.
There are eight more weeks of qualifiers remaining. If they are anything like these first two, fans should be ecstatic. The broadcast has been improving each event and week. You can catch the event every Saturday and Sunday on Twitch. The official channel swaps from lobby to lobby. Also, check out players who do stream the event.
