Qualifying for the Fortnite World Cup one time is hard, qualifying twice should be borderline impossible.
But a solid group of players actually managed to qualify for both the solo and duos events, some of them even managed to qualify more times in future weeks.
Given the pure randomness of Fortnite, it is very difficult to succeed at the game consistently. We have seen many well-regarded players with huge wins in past events miss out on the WC entirely.
But those misses paved the way for a new crop of players to shine and some young guns are ready to step up. Here are the 18 people who managed to qualify for both events.
Davis ‘Ceice’ McClellan
Ceice first rose to fame by winning the World Showdown of Esports Fortnite tournament last winter. A month and a half after winning, he signed on to 100 Thieves. He won that duo event with longtime partner ‘Elevate’ and that duo will be competing in New York together as well. For that win, they brought in $100,000. But that is the minimum Ceice will be playing for this weekend and he has the chance to win a whole lot more.
We don’t know his real name because he is just 15 years old, but we do know this kid is nice on the sticks. After coming out of nowhere to crush some qualifiers, Arkhram was suddenly playing Friday Fortnite alongside Dr. DisRespect and found himself quickly picked up by 100 Thieves.
Nicollas ‘Nicks’ Polonio de Oliveira
Our only Brazilian player to make this list, Nicks is especially noteworthy for grabbing the two of the elusive Brazil spots in the World Cup. Compared to larger regions like NA-East and EU, becoming a double qualifier in one of the smaller reasons requires near perfect play. He was rewarded for his double qualifier by being picked up by Cloud 9 last month.
Klaus ‘Stompy’ Konstanzer
This EU player is actually my favorite to win it all alongside his partner Tschiinken. Why you ask? Because Stompy and Tschiinken qualified every single week in EU duos. Every. Single. Week. They don’t have a ton of success at LANs yet but they appear to be the duo playing at the absolute highest level right now. Stompy added two solo qualifies to his resume meaning he hit the mark 7/10 weeks.
Danny ‘Dubs’ Walsh and Megga
Time to get into the FaZe Clan portion of our list. The leading esports org had the most total qualifiers of any organization with 11 entries spread out among the solo and duos events. I combined these two players because they have been a premiere duo since signing to FaZe Clan and there are 18 entries so why not shorten it a little bit.
Dubs went through some controversy when he was accused of cheating back in Week One of the Fortnite World Cup. He was cleared by Epic Games and it seems like people just didn’t want to give him credit for his skill at the time. Him and Megga have dominated together and are one of the favorites in NY.
Trevor ‘Funk’ Siegler
Also known as FunkBomb, the FaZe clan player was embroiled in controversy last Fall when he cheated during the Fall Skirmish event. He was removed from the Dusty Dogs and wasn’t eligible for the prizes. Still, he served his time and his qualifications in the World Cup came fair and square. Playing alongside Nate Hill, the duo has over a year of competitive success together, making them one of the longest running duos in Fortnite.
Kyle ‘Mongraal’ Jackson
The former Team Secret star has had a lot of competitive success. He won the Luxe Cup, Share the Love and the Cooler Cup over the last year. He spent most of his time with Team Secret but was picked up by FaZe Clan earlier this month, adding another star to FaZe’s roster heading into the event.
Mark ‘Letw1k3’ Danilov and Yan ‘fwexY’ Kaur
Another combined entry, this Gambit Esports duo features two young players who have been duoing together since last winter. The young Russians have plenty of chemistry and the skill to make major moves in NYC.
Clément ‘Skite’ Danglot
Skite is one of the best French players in Fortnite. While competing for LeStream Esport, he secured a major win in the Winter Royale. Despite that competitions issues with competitive integrity *cough Infinity Blade cough* that doesn’t fall on Skite who had to navigate the random new meta to win a tough solo competition against some of the best players in the world.
Cody ‘Clix’ Conrod
Competing for Misfits Gaming, Clix is a relatively new addition to the competitive Fortnite scene. His first recorded event was Share the Love and he didn’t have any notable finishes until he qualified for the Fortnite World Cup, then he qualified again, and again.
Three times in total with Week 9 ending up in first place in the highly competitive NA-East division. He will compete with fellow Misfits player Skeptic in NY.
Benjy ‘BenjyFishy’ Fish
Yes his name is actually Benjy Fish. No, I’m not kidding. The Fishstick skin was made for this young killer. He qualified for the World Cup four separate times and is a fan-favorite in the competitive community to place highly, especially in duos where he competes alongside MrSavage.
Martin ‘MrSavage’ Andersen
Speaking of, BenjyFishy’s duo partner is also one of the most talented players in the world. The two young Europeans will represent NRG in NY. It will be a huge test for the duo who don’t have much LAN experience but have dominated the online circuit for the duration of qualifiers.
A dark horse in the tournament, EpikWhale could easily come through to win it all. He helped put The Fortnite Guy’s Team Kungarna on the map by being the first really successful player to sign on to the organization. Now they boast the second most Fortnite World Cup qualifiers of any organization, but EpikWhale isn’t one of them. He jumped ship over to NRG just last week, giving Andy Miller’s organization one of the most robust Fortnite rosters out there.
Williams ‘Zayt’ Aubin
The final entry from NRG, Zayt caps off the four NRG players going to NY who all double qualified. He’s also the player who has been with the org the longest, and had the most success. His competitive results date all the way back to a win in the Summer Skirmish on July 27th, 2018. Now, on the one year anniversary of that win, he will be competing in the Fortnite World Cup Finals. Hopefully its a lucky date for him.
Duong ‘Kinstaar’ Huynh
Another player being a bit overlooked by the competitive community, Solary’s Kinstaar is actually one of the longest running Fortnite pros out there. His results date back to the amateur competitions running before Epic Games’ events or Friday Fortnite had ever begun. He has been very consistent over his career. He has high placements in Summer Skirmish, Fall Skirmish and the Katowice Royale. You will be hard pressed to find anyone with such a long track record of competitive success.
Theo ‘Crue’ Ferrer
Here’s another lesser known player to be on the lookout for. Crue has been competing in events since last winter but the first time he reached a top ten was qualifiers. The Valhalla Vikings player is probably the least known double-qualifier on this list, but that can all change after this weekend.
