A couple of new “super teams” have formed with less than a month to go until Fortnite’s premiere competition begins.
Each Fortnite season begins with pros testing and swapping teammates, trying to give themselves the best possible chance to do well in the FNCS. With a limited number of players at the very top level, one change of personnel can cause a chain reaction across the entire region.
Nowhere is this more prominent than the NA East server. Following Thursday’s Duos Cash Cup Round 2, there’s been a major reshuffle that sees many of the most promising pairs parting ways.
1st: Peterbot & Khanada
2nd: Muz & Avery
3rd: Threats & Userz
4th: Ajerss & Rise
5th: Joji & Rocaine

After a dominant performance, which saw them win the Cash Cup by a margin of over 40 points, Peterbot and Khanada split later last night. They weren’t the only ones either, a slew of new teams have since formed, leaving some great players still searching for a partner.
Thanks to Twitter and Reddit we have a decent idea of what these new duos look like, but of course nothing is set in stone:
Ajerss & Khanada
These two already have chemistry, having teamed in both the most recent Trios FNCS and the Grand Royale. They have each separately placed inside the top 4 in FNCS Grand Finals and are very strong Duos players, so this is definitely one to keep an eye on.
Bugha & Mero
Now this is a scary outfit. They won Season 8 FNCS and the Grand Royale together and Mero has already won the first Solo Cash Cup of Chapter 3. They will have their sights firmly set on the top spot for FNCS Duos.
Skqttles & Peterbot
Dropped by Bugha and Khanada respectively, Skqttles and Peterbot join forces to create a team with championship potential. Despite not being quite as well known as the other names we’ve discussed, they have also both produced top 4 Grand Finals performances, and have a fantastic grasp of the fundamentals of competitive Fortnite.
With just over three weeks remaining until the first FNCS qualifier, things are starting to get serious. The teams are still bound to change again, but closer to time we will share some predictions for top Duos going into the event.
