Every Fortnite player who double-qualified for the Fortnite World Cup



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 and Elevate after winning WSOE

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

One of the fan favorites to win the World Cup

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

Fortnite’s Valentines Day event was a big pick up for Mongraal

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

Here’s the fish man himself posing next to FaZe Clan’s Mongraal

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

Zayt (right) is one of the most successful Fortnite players in the World Cup

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.

Fortnite pro Cented kicked out of FaZe Clan for using hate speech

Fortnite pro Cented is no longer a part of FaZe clan. He was caught saying a racial slur on stream, and has parted ways with the organization.



Fortnite pro Cented no longer in FaZe Clan

FaZe Clan has removed Cented from their Fortnite roster after the pro player used a racial slur on a livestream. Here’s what’s next for the aspiring Esports athlete.

When Evan ‘Cented’ Barron joined FaZe clan in March 2021, fans worldwide had sky-scraping expectations from him. To be fair, he did gain a ton of followers across Twitch and Twitter and significantly improved his skills as a pro.

However, the former FNCS finalist and Cash Cups winner has been kicked out by FaZe Clan for using hate speech.

Why did FaZe Clan permanently remove Fortnite pro Cented?

While playing Fortnite recently, Cented joined Twitch streamer nothellfire1’s party and wasted no time in dropping a racial slur. It seems like he was not aware that nothellfire1 was live on Twitch.

This was followed by FaZe immediately announcing Cented’s permanent removal from the clan for using hate speech. The post clearly mentioned how the Esports org is constantly evolving and there is no room for racial slurs/discriminatory language.

Soon after, Cented himself admitted to using the slur on stream and claimed that he should’ve known better. The streamer apologized to the Fortnite community and acknowledged his immaturity and ignorance.

He said, “Somewhere along the way I let my ego get the best of me.”

Fortnite community reacts to FaZe Clan removing Cented

While some players are shocked that FaZe has parted ways with Cented instead of giving him sensitivity training, others like prominent leaker HYPEX did not hold back from making him aware of his mistake.

The mixed response from the Fortnite community is understandable, to say the least. It is fair for people to expect organizations to take rehabilitative measures, and it is equally justified for others to expect more maturity from adults like Cented.

This isn’t the first time that Cented has faced consequences for his blunt behavior. Back in June 2021, Epic Games warned him for abusing a young player and recklessly ranting about the Battle Royale game on Twitter.

Incidents like the one mentioned above have played a major role in decaying the image of Fortnite’s competitive community. Rather than being role models, the pros are infamous for being toxic and disrespectful.

Fortnite has announced the Champion Series (FNCS) for Chapter 3 Season 3 in which pros worldwide will compete for 3 million dollars.



FNCS Chapter 3 Season 3

The Fortnite Champion Series is easily the most anticipated competitive event every season. In Chapter 3 Season 3, the likes of Bugha, Clix, and Arkhram, among others, will battle it out for a prize pool of 3 million dollars.

Epic Games has finally announced the FNCS for Chapter 3 Season 3. This time around, the logo seems to have a tropical theme that matches the ‘Vibin’ season. The meta has also changed significantly, and it will be interesting to see how some of the most talented esports athletes have adapted to it.

Everything to know about Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) Chapter 3 Season 3

Fortnite Champion Series for Chapter 3 Season 3 will begin on July 6 with 3 Qualifier rounds. The top five teams (Duos) from each round will directly advance to the FNCS Finals.

The qualifiers will take place till July 18 and the Semi-Finals will begin on July 21. As per Epic Games, the key to reaching the finals is Victory Royales and consistency. In the three Semi-Finals sessions, 6 Victory Royale winners and the top six consistent teams will move ahead.

The Finals will take place between August 12-14. There are two ways for a team to win the Fortnite Champion Series in Chapter 3 Season 3:

  • The first team to get three Victory Royales and earn 475 points will be declared the FNCS champion. This is called the Match Point.
  • If no team is able to acquire a Match Point at the end of 12 Finals matches, the duo with the highest points will win.

Chapter 3 Season 3 FNCS prize pool distribution

The prize pool for the Chapter 3 Season 3 FNCS is a whopping $3 million. However, it will be divided across several regions:

  • EU: $1,350,000
  • NAE: $690,000
  • BR: $240,000
  • NAW: $240,000
  • ASIA: $240,000
  • ME: $120,000
  • OCE: $120,000

The prize pool is different for each region, primarily because of Fortnite’s prominence there. It is evident that the viewership numbers in Europe are much higher than in the Middle East and Oceania.

Fortnite star SypherPK quits Zero Build tournament after losing to cheaters

The Zero Build tournaments in Fortnite have been hijacked by cheaters, and streamer SypherPK eagerly wants Epic Games to fix it.



Fortnite veteran SypherPK has always been vocal about cheaters and stream snipers in the community. The streamer’s latest encounter with hackers in a Zero Build tournament compelled him to quit.

Multiplayer games, especially Battle Royales, have always had trouble with cheaters. Brilliant titles like Apex Legends and Call of Duty Warzone became unplayable owing to the rise of hackers and have lost innumerable players so far.

From the looks of it, there has been a surge of hackers in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 as well following the introduction of Zero Build mode.

Fortnite pros are encountering more hackers than ever in Zero Build tournaments

Fortnite caught a second wind with Zero Build as a ton of new players joined the community. Moreover, big names like Ninja, Dr. Disrespect, and Tfue returned to the game and appreciated the non-sweaty mode.

The developers then hosted Zero Build tournaments that received an overwhelmingly positive response initially. However, hackers have now plagued such tournaments.

Fortnite players can only rely on their aim, game sense, and movement in Zero Build

SypherPK recently took part in the NA West Zero Build finals and he was well aware of the fact that some teams are abusing aim bot and wall hacks.

Soon after, the streamer reported that hackers eliminated him in the very first game. It is no surprise that this incident led to him quitting the cup. He asked Epic Games to work on a live bans feature or atleast a new anti-cheat system that is dedicated to competitive playlists.

Zero Build mode in Fortnite has helped in exposing cheaters

Previously, Fortnite compelled players to build which significantly increased the skill gap between newcomers and veterans. On one side, there were players with the skill set to make a skyscraper within 30 seconds. On the other end of the spectrum, there were beginners who struggled in every game because the SBMM system rarely matched them with equally skilled/experienced players.

Amidst such issues, we are witnessing the growing use of cheats and devices like the Cronus Zen. This allows cheaters to win more comfortably than ever, but naturally, at the cost of the ruined experience of every player they face.

Until Chapter 3 Season 1, it was harder to track cheaters because mechanics like building and editing were an integral part of the meta.

In contrast, aim and mobility are the deciding factors of a Zero Build game. Accordingly, players can now easily identify cheaters using aim bots and wall hacks.

Countless other players, streamers, and pros have similar opinions on the current state of Fortnite and Epic Games would certainly want to come up with a solution before the Cash Cups commence in Chapter 3 Season 3.
