Everything you need to know about the $10,000 Fortnite Nick Eh 30 Cup
The Fortnite Season 4 FNCS Grand Finals wrapped up this past weekend and saw some of the biggest names in the game competing for their share hundreds of thousands of dollars.
This was the fist FNCS competition that had two days of heats and Grand Finals each week. Instead of playing six hours of marathon Fortnite in one sitting, players spread out their performance over the course of the weened. Not only did the additional games make the Season 4 FNCS more competitive, but it added to the drama going into day 2.
Ahead, we’ll take a look at the Season 4 FNCS results in each of the “Big 3” regions: Europe, NA-East, and NA-West.
Mongraal, Mitr0 & Tayson win EU FNCS
The European region was dominated by one of the favorite trios to win the event, landing in the most powerful POI on the map: Mongraal, Mitr0, and Tayson landing at Stark Industries. The trio had a massive lead going into day two and only had to protect it and add to it, going forward.
The only team that was close to striking distance was JannisZ, and1zr, and Duckontop. In fact, the trio eliminated Mongraal and his team in the final game, making it seem like they had a chance to win it all. Unfortunately, they were eliminated soon after and came in second.
The top ten was dominated by popular teams, with Th0masHD and his trio coming in 3rd, Wolfiez coming in 6th, and the trio of MrSavage, Benjyfishy, and LetsHe finishing 8th. Here’s a look at how the top 10 ended.

Reverse2k, Deyy & Mero win NA-East FNCS
One of the newest organizations in Fortnite made a splash in their first tournament as Team New Age players Reverse2k, Deyy, and Mero won the NA-East FNCS.
Many Fortnite fans know Reverse2k as Ninja’s duo partner for the World Cup, but Reverse took the competitive side of the game much more seriously than his old teammate – as witnessed by his latest win.
Filling out the top 10 were names like Edgey, Bugha, Zayt, Slackes, Zexrow, Av, Khanada, and many more. The team of Illest, Bizzle, and Clix were disappointed with a 14th-place finish – one spot below Ronaldo at 13. Here’s a look at the top 10.

Arkhram, Rehx & EpikWhale
Fans of competitive Fortnite shouldn’t be surprised to see Arkham, Rehx, and EpikWhale win the NA-West region of the Season 4 FNCS. What is surprising, however, is the margian by which they won: 109 points above Little, Temple B and Pelican in second.
Two of the other fan-favorites in the region – Falconer’s trio and Reet’s trio – rounded off the top 5 with 146 and 141 points, respectively. This might be the most top-heavy region in all of Fortnite esports.

The positioning of players in each region lends credibility to the idea that Trios could be the most competitive Fortnite mode in existence. There was far less randomness happening in each match – especially when you compere it to Solos.
We haven’t seen any official announcement of the Season 5 FNCS format, but most fans and players are assuming that it will be duos – based on the recent addition of Duos Arena. We’ll keep you posted when we learn more.
