CourageJD officially joins 100 Thieves

Published

on

Jack ‘CourageJD’ Dunlop and Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag finally partner up as the Fortnite personality officially joins 100 Thieves as a content creator.

On May 28 one of the top esports organizations on the planet, 100 Thieves, announced that CourageJD would be joining their content team along with living in the Los Angeles content house.

The official announcement reads:

“We’re thrilled to officially welcome CouRageJD to 100 Thieves as the third creator for our content house. With a background in pro gaming and casting, CouRage brings an extremely unique charisma and dynamic to our team. We’re beyond excited to have him part of 100 Thieves! #100T”

A video was also posted on the 100 Thieves YouTube channel where Valkyrae, Nadeshot, and Courage all participate in a skit based off of the U.S. television show The Office.

Each personality went through their own skits as they retell the story of how Courage originally joined the organization a few months ago, but a horrible “incident” created some turmoil between Nadeshot and Courage.

The infamous incident refers to Nadeshot standing next to Ariana Grande instead of allowing Courage the honor of standing besides the pop sensation.

With one of YouTube and Twitch’s most popular content creators joining forces with the 100 Thieves powerhouse, this should be a match made in heaven.

Courage has a background in esports and casting, as his big career break happened back when he shoutcasted Call of Duty matches.

What type of content are you excited to see out of 100 Thieves and Courage?

Fortnite Season 4 FNCS Week 2 final results

Week 2 of the Season 4 FNCS has concluded. Take a look at all of the teams who qualified in EU, NA-East, and NA-West.

Published

on

The Season 4 FNCS Week 2 tournament has wrapped up, bringing us some newly qualified teams along with some who are padding their season point total and trying to enter the tournament that way.

Every time a team qualifies for the finals more than once, they add another spot to the “series point total” qualification method. NA-East, in particular, had a ton of double qualifiers in week 2. With this being such a stacked region, we expect to see this happen again in Week 3.

Ahead, we’ll take a look at the final placements of the three most popular regions in Fortnite esports: NA-East, NA-West, and Europe.

Europe FNCS Week 2 results

Rams KeziixZ, Grizi 4zr, and GRIZI Nayte won the European region of the FNCS Week 2 for the second week in a row. They finished with 239 points, 31 points above EP Queasy, GXR Milаn, and сhapix 74 in second.

Mongraal, Mitr0, and Tayson showed early consistency, finishing third in the event after a top-three finish last week, as well. Some first-time qualifiers include Teeq’s, Kubx, and Setty along with Flikk, Аnas, and Th0masHD.

NA-East FNCS Week 2 results

One of the longest-running duos, Zayt and Saf, took home first place in week 2 with fellow teammate Stretch – landing at Doom’s Domain without using their favorite weapon – Doom’s Mystical Bomb. They won with a whopping 227 points – 30 points above Jamper, Bugha, and Avery in second place.

We have a large number of double-qualifiers in week two, already, meaning that more spots will be added to the total series point leaderboard at the end of the tournament. People like Clix, Bugha, Demonspect, Az, and Reverse qualified in week 1, but are showing consistency with their double qualifications.

Noteworthy teams who have qualified fort the first time include Zexrow, Calc, and MackWood along with Chap, Coop, and Whofishy. Here’s the top-15 finishers for the week.

  1. Zayt at Dooms, TSM saffy, Liquid STREMON

NA-West FNCS Week 2 results

It should come as no surprise to learn that Arkham, Rehx, and EpikWhale took the second straight week of NA-West FNCS qualifiers. It’s their region to lose, right now, and they took first with 236 points – 32 above Reet, WavyJAcob and FavsFN in second.

The NA-West region might be the most top-heavy in all of Fortnite, with the top two teams finishing in their positions two weeks in a row. Apart from them, however, we have more new qualifiers in NA-West than any other region in week 2. Here’s how the top 15 looked when the two-day qualifiers ended.

  1. 100T Arkhram., 100T rehx, NRG EpikWhale
  2. XΤRA Reet, wavydfavs13, EP wavy
  3. clg sym 神, NorCal Mony, jayrosez
  4. Dex 神, Pure Kono, sаlvo.
  5. TRNL Beast, XTRA Tautai., TRNL Wheels
  6. kenshiǃ, mаken, TD Poodle
  7. XTRA caleb, BumHuevos, XTRA verT
  8. pure spideyy, 50cal blizy, nаtеXX.

  13. NorCal defiable, Apex Nuqlo, NorCal Brycee
  14. 1Tidal, Skillz eVe, RBK Mechton
  15. drеwo, 5G Tricks, E11 Agholor

With so many double qualifiers in each region, it’s going to be difficult to keep track of everyone who will qualify through season points. Epic are going to have to do a lot of tracking when these qualifiers end, as it seems like we have the same group of teams finishing in the top-15 in the “Big 3” regions of NA-East, West, and Europe.

The last FNCS Season 4 qualifier will wrap up next week, with the Wild Card round and Season Finals following it. We’ll keep you posted with all of the updates, so stay tuned for more competitive Fortnite news.

Fortnite Season 4 FNCS: dates, scoring, Twitch Drops & more

The Fortnite Season 4 FNCS is coming soon! Here’s everything you need to know.

Published

on

The Fortnite Season 4 FNCS is right around the corner, which means players and fans are gearing up to see how the latest season of competitive Fortnite will shake out. Will the mythic items play as much of a role as they have in past seasons? Only time will tell.

We’re content to sit back and watch the action unfold in front of us. Ahead, we’ll tell you everything you need to know to enjoy the event along with us, including the scoring format, how to watch, how to earn Twitch Drops, and more.

Format & Scoring

The Format for the Season 4 FNCS will be Trios, which is the favorite mode of many of the top competitors. Some teams have already developed while others will undoubtedly make some last-minute adjustments.

The point system has already been praised by a lot of the top pros in the Fortnite scene. All teams who place within the top half in each game will receive at least one point. They will gain another point for every placement position after that until they reach the top three, where the points go up a bit. Eliminations are also worth one point each and don’t have a cap.

Placement

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point

Each Elimination: 1 Point

Programming Schedule

The official Fortnite FNCS broadcasts will return for Fortnite Season 4, featuring some of our favorite personalities and broadcasters bringing us several days worth of content.

The FNCS begins on October 9 with the Open Qualification stages of the tournament, but the broadcasts will cover the second stages of qualifications on Saturday and Sunday. Every week for the next three weeks, qualification tournaments take place on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

This season, for the first time, Epic are breaking up the tournament into two days. This gives players a lot more rest in between their sessions. Here’s a list of the broadcast schedule for every Saturday and Sunday (all times are in EST):

  • 1:00pm – Broadcast begins
  • 1:15pm – Live EU coverage
  • 5:15pm – Live NAE coverage
  • 8:30pm – Approximate end

The finals will take place through October 29 – November 1. You can watch all of the action on the Fortnite YouTube or Twitch channels or on watch.fortnite.com.

Twitch Drops

Twitch drops are returning for this season, as well, which means the most rewarding way to watch the FNCS will be on Twitch. The drops will feature the same cosmetics as the ones from Season 3 – only this time in fuchsia rather than cyan. With the new customizable skins and back bling, these cosmetics are more valuable than ever.

If you want to earn Twitch drops, the method is the same as it’s always been: you need to link your Epic and Twitch accounts to one another. It’s also important to note that you have to have linked your accounts within the last six months to receive Twitch Drops. If you linked your accounts over a year ago, you’ll have to do it again.

While watching one of the verified FNCS streams, you’ll see a prompt at the bottom of the video, telling you to link your account for Twitch Drops. All you need to do is click this link, sign in to your Epic account, and keep watching. Eventually, after watching for a bit, you’ll earn the in-game Fortnite cosmetics.

That should be everything that you need to know to enjoy the Fortnite Season 4 FNCS. Of course, we’ll update this post with any additional information or changes that come to light before the event starts on October 9.

We’ll be covering all of the qualifications, the finals, and everything in between here and on Twitter, @FortniteINTEL, so make sure to follow us there to stay up to date with everything. Enjoy!
