Notable players who still need to qualify for the Fortnite World Cup – Ninja, Cloak, Nickmercs, and more

Published

on

While many of the greatest Fortnite players have already qualified for the World Cup, there is still a long list of major competitors with no spot. Some of the names on this list may surprise you.

The Fortnite World Qualifiers have been a grueling gauntlet of skills and determination. Not everyone can make it to the Finals in New York, but there are a multitude of shocking exceptions from the qualified players.

In fact, 66 of the Top 100 earning Fortnite players of all time are currently unqualified for the Finals. Naturally, some have retired from competing, but most have actively tried to break their way into the prestigious event.

The question is how will the absence of the some of Fortnite’s biggest stars affect the event? In terms of competitive intensity, the effect should be minimal. However, in terms of the viewership, we could a significantly reduced view count if some of these pros don’t make it.

All earnings stats were retrieved from EsportsEarnings.com.

Cloak – 3rd All Time Earner – $421,425

Cloak is the highest earning Fortnite pro who has not earned a spot in the Fortnite World Cup. He is still considered among the greatest players, but his performances in the World Cup Qualifiers haven’t been adequate. His duo, Tfue, managed to clench a Solos spot earlier in the event cycle.

Poach – 5th All Time Earner – $323,500

Poach is the second player from the top 5 Fortnite earners to not have a Finals spot. The player boasts an incredible career with multiple first place placements and tons of prize money. Poach is also among the most vocal critics of the Epic’s constant meta changes and their negative effects for Fortnite esports.

ZexRow – 15th All Time Earner – $199,475

TSM has employed a wide variety of the steamers and players, but ZexRow leads their squad. The young player boasts huge earnings, a plethora of trophies, and influence over thousands of fans. Yet, he’s missed the mark for the Qualifiers. For ZexRow, Week 10 is judgement day.

Nickmercs – 31st All Time Earner – $129,225

Is the controller mightier than the mouse?

Nickmercs is the controller community’s greatest champion and he is made a lot of money from Fortnite. With that said, a gigantic amount of that cash was from an entirely different format. The MFAM’s support gives powerful motivation, but Nick will need to perform well in Week 10 for a spot.

Symfuhny – 33rd All Time Earner – $124,075

Ok, let’s be honest. NRG’s brand will be well represented without Sym, but the fast-paced player’s gameplay would add a great spark to the competition. NRG has already claimed 6 qualifier spots using 3 players (benjyfishy, MrSavageM, & Zayt). Can they claim a fourth before Week 10’s finish?

Ninja – 77th All Time Earner – $58,075

Can Ninja make it to the Finals in Week 10?

Ninja’s is, without question, Fortnite’s biggest influencer, but that isn’t enough to make it in competitive Fortnite. The star’s rapid rise to fame hasn’t afforded him significant success after Epic took over the Fortnite esports scene. With Week 10 hours away, is Ninja ready and able to do what it takes to make it to the World Cup Finals?

TSM Myth – 88th All Time Earner – $55,775

Myth’s not ready to give up just yet

Myth remains TSM’s face of Fortnite, but he unfortunately hasn’t been able to place for the Finals. While Comadon will represent the Team Solomid brand nonetheless, we know Myth won’t be satisfied with watching from the sidelines.

Here is when Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 ends and Season 3 starts. The season is off to a heated start, and it’s only going to get more intense.

Fortnite Chapter 3 has just entered its second season, and it’s off to a great start. Here is when Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 ends and Season 3 starts.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 ended without much warning ahead of time from Epic Games. In fact, only a day before the Season ended did we get an announcement for Season 2.

Regardless, Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 is off to a hot start. We have new POIs, weapons, and a flashy new Battle Pass. There’s also no building to start and an ongoing turf war.

Whether you love or hate the new season, you might be wondering when the next one will start.

When Does Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 End?

fortnite season 2 the foundation destroyed

Fortnite Season 2 will end on June 3, 2022. This means the second season of the new chapter will last a little less than three months making it fairly short compared to Season 1.

This end date was found in the in-game files by data miners. Unlike last season where Epic Games listed two season end dates, there is only one end date this time around.

When Does Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Start?

New Fortnite seasons usually start within 24 hours after the previous one ends. Players can expect Chapter 3 Season 3 to start on June 4.

That being said, leaker Shiina believes there will be an extended period of downtime after the season ends to prep for Season 3. We will know more about this delay as time draws closer.

Is There a Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Live Event?

The final update for Fortnite Season 2 is here and we now have confirmation that, yes, there will be a live event!

The Season 2 live event will likely focus on stopping the new Doomsday Device from going off at Loot Lake. It is a very similar tower to that of Midas’ Doomsday Device in Chapter 2 Season 2.

What Season is Fortnite on?

Fortnite is currently in Chapter 3 Season 2. This is the second season of the third chapter which started after Chapter 2 Season 8. While most players refer to this season as “Season 2”, it’s technically Season 20.

There were 10 seasons in Chapter 1 and 8 seasons in Chapter 2.

Fortnite season 8 new weapons

For now, that’s everything we know about Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2. This chapter will likely span the next year or so and will be filled with exciting events.

We will keep you updated on when Fortnite Season 3 starts. For more Fortnite, check out the best controller settings for Chapter 3, and stay tuned for more news and guides.

Fortnite Season 2 introduced Marvel’s Prowler to the Battle Royale, and players can unlock him via the Battle Pass and a few challenges.

Fortnite Season 2 adds not one but two Marvel characters to the game via the Battle Pass, but players might not be familiar with Prowler.

Season 2 started off hot with an amazing battle pass and a shocking removal of the game’s iconic building mechanic. Players were even more excited to see the Battle Pass had two crossover characters.

The first is Doctor Strange who has a new movie releasing in May. However, players may not be super familiar with the second crossover character. And it was surprisingly released alongside the Fortnite v20.20 update.

Prowler is an alias used by a number of people in the Marvel universe. But he most recently appeared in Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse as Miles Morales’ uncle. And the in-game skin is a similar depiction of the character.
