Want to get a chance to compete against the pros before FNCS? This may be your best chance.
With Epic deciding to postpone the beginning of FNCS Qualifiers due to a game breaking bug preventing some players from properly queuing for games, many players were left disappointed and disheartened knowing that they would have to wait more to prove their skills and compete for the almost $700,000 prize pool. This is why the Practice Server has decided to step in to host an unofficial FNCS Warmup consisting of top tier professional players, new scrimmers, and everyone in between.
The qualification system will be similar to our renowned East Open ladders, consisting of an Open Qualifier round, Semi-Finals and then Grand Finals over an expedited two day schedule. The open qualifiers will be taking place on Wednesday February 10th between 4:00PM - 7:00PM EST and to proceed to the semi-finals you will have to place in the top 132 of trios. Semi-Finals will take place on the same day between 8:00PM - 11:00PM EST, with you and your trio having to place top 33 to proceed onto the Grand Finals which will happen the next day, Thursday February 11th between 6:00PM - 9:00PM EST.
Qualification will follow the traditional FNCS scoring system that is in place for the season 5 trios FNCS. Open qualifiers will have a 3x multiplier on placement points to better diversify teams and promote consistency, while the semi-finals and finals will maintain the default scoring system. If you want to see a more in-depth look at the scoring system, make sure to join the East Open Discord or the War Legend ladder page.
As mentioned above, this is not a regular ladder as all types of players are allowed to compete and with minimal alternative practice before FNCS, this will be a sought after tournament for professional players, Practice Server members, and other contenders in the competitive Fortnite scene.
To further promote this awesome event put out by the Practice Server and Practice Productions, popular commentator MonsterDface has decided to step up and cast the Finals of this warm-up event. The broadcast will be streamed on the Practice Server’s official Twitch, so make sure to tune in if you don’t end up qualifying! This event will also be using the new War Legend client, so make sure to have you and your trio sign up as soon as possible to properly secure a spot for the competition! Sign ups can be found in the East Open Discord under the #information channel in the “FNCS” section.
