How to watch the Fortnite Streamer Bowl 2 ft. Clix, Tfue, Ninja & more

The Fortnite Season 5 FNCS is upon us. Here’s how to watch, earn Twitch Drops, and everything else you need to know.

Fans and players in the competitive Fortnite scene were ecstatic to learn that Epic have doubled-down on their commitment to the professional and competitive side of the game.

This year, Epic have decided to merge the console and PC player pools to create a larger stage and prize pool for everyone involved. A lot of console players didn’t like this change, but the PC platform has always been considered the “big leagues” of the game. This is where Epic dedicate their broadcast resources, so it’s not surprising to see them increase the prize pool and raise the stakes.

Ahead, we’ll cover everything you need to know about the event, including the format, schedule, and how to earn Twitch Drops as a viewer.

Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass

Format & Scoring

The Season 5 FNCS format will be Trios, which is the new standard Fortnite competitive mode for FNCS competitions. We should see all FNCS competitions follow this format going forward.

We haven’t seen the official format posted by Epic at the time of writing. Since they’re going out of their way to make a standard FNCS competition, it’s safe to assume that they’ll be using the same format as Season 4. We’ll update this post if they make any changes to the point system.

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

  • 11th: 7 Points

  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point

Each Elimination: 1 Point

Programming Schedule

Instead of weekly broadcasts, Epic will be focusing on “the most pivotal stages of competition.” These will include the final week of Qualifiers on February 7, February 14, and February 21, along with the Semi-Finals and Finals.

The broadcasts for EU and NA will follow this schedule:

EU

  • 1:00pm – Broadcast begins
  • 1:15pm – Live EU coverage
  • 4:30pm – Approximate end

NA

  • 5:00pm – Broadcast begins
  • 5:15pm – Live NAE coverage
  • 8:30pm – Break
  • 9:15pm – Live NAW coverage
  • 12:30am – Approximate end

Epic will also be broadcasting Brazil and Australian FNCS on different Twitch channels, along with French and German coverage of the EU FNCS. You can find those channels here.

Twitch Drops

As usual, Epic will be offering Twitch Drops to Forntite players who watch the FNCS on Twitch. These include the typical rewards, including a back bling, emoticon, spray, and loading screen.

To receive the Twitch Drops, you need to link your Twitch and Epic Games account. All official broadcasts will have Twitch Drops enabled, as will the streams of most competitors or those hosting viewing parties.

We’ll keep you posted with all of the updates to the Season 5 FNCS, including the qualified participants, winners in each region, and any drama that is sure to come out of the event.
