Fortnite boasts $2 million Solo FNCS Invitational

After the conclusion of the Fortnite Championship Series 2 Finals, Epic Games revealed news of another tournament. This online Fortnite tournament begins on May 9 and lasts for three weeks. Featuring a $2 million prize pool, the Solo Fortnite Champion Series Invitational includes finalists from previous FNCS tournaments. Unlike other FNCS, the majority of players in previous tournaments will receive an invite.

Solo FNCS Invitational Requirements

  • The top 100 players from Chapter 2 Season 2 PC FNCS Finals
  • The top 100 players from Chapter 2 Season 2 Console/Mobile FNCS Finals
  • The top 100 players from Chapter 2 Season 1 FNCS Finals
  • The top 100 players from Season X FNCS Finals
  • Up to 100 players invited directly by Epic Games

Players who do not meet these qualifications still have a chance to qualify for the tournament. An additional 100 players in each region can go through open qualifiers to get their invites. However, to compete in these qualifiers, players must have reached Champion Division in Arena Mode. The open qualifiers begin on May 1 for the Middle East region and May 2 for all other regions.
