What Can Fans Expect From FNCS Chapter 2 Season 6?

Like in previous tournaments, this year’s edition of the Fortnite Champion Series tilt will be formatted in Trios. Three qualifiers, as part of the opening rounds of the tourney, will start streaming live every Sunday from April 25th to May 9th, reports GameSpot.

Each team that places in the top 3 for every qualifier will have the honor to skip the semis and go straight to the championship round. On the other hand, those who fail to make the top 3 will get Series Points according to their final placements post-qualifiers. Once the final qualifier round is over, the top 99 Trios by Series Points earned will make the semi-finals in their respective regions.
