Format Changes To Fortnite Season 6 FNCS
Epic Games has made “slight adjustments” to this season’s qualification format.
Teams that placed 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in Chapter 2 Season 5 already qualify into Finals for Chapter 2 Season 6 and thus cannot participate in the Qualifiers or Semi-Finals.
Some quick highlights of the format changes are:
Fortnite Season 6 FNCS Scoring
There are a few adjustments for single-lobby rounds compared the last season’s point format based on player feedback. FNCS has decided to award points more evenly across the top and at pivotal points during a match. Most importantly, teams that make it past Storm Surge thresholds will be rewarded.
The adjusted scoring for Fortnite Season 6 FNCS is:
Victory Royale: 30
Each Elimination: 2 Points
The scoring format for earlier rounds that do not use a single lobby system (Round 1, Round 2, and Round 3) will remain unchanged from last season.
The Chapter 2 Season 6 FNCS Official Rules will be coming soon and can be found in the Rules Library when posted.
