Competitive Fortnite fans rejoice! Another month of intense FNCS action is almost upon us.

Epic Games has finally revealed details for the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 FNCS. The format will feel very familiar to those who have played before, though there are a couple of interesting adjustments.

Firstly, Epic confirmed that this season’s FNCS will “continue to have the ability to build”. This is no surprise, though top streamers like Tfue have already called for a Zero Build equivalent.

The condensed format last season was not very popular and was blamed for a number of pros failing to make Semis. In response, a third Qualifier has been added. Check out the dates below:

C3:S2 FNCS Schedule

Qualifier 1: May 2-6

Qualifier 2: May 7-8

Qualifier 3: May 13-15

Semi-Finals: May 20-22

Finals: May 28-29

You can already view local start times for your region via our Events Page.

Each Qualifier will occur across four rounds, with the top five duos from each Round 4 booking a spot directly in Finals.

Semi-Finals remain largely unchanged. There will be three sessions, securing a Victory Royale or placing in the top 6 most consistent teams for any of these sessions will qualify you for Finals.

The key difference in Finals is that the Match Point threshold has been reduced to 475 points and three Victory Royales. This is still very difficult to achieve, especially in the larger regions, but perhaps we could see an exciting Match Point finish this time around.

A full breakdown of the format can be found in Epic’s official blog post.

Prize Pool

The prize pool is the same as last season, clocking in at a total $3,008,500 across all regions. It will be split up as follows:

EU: $1,362,500

NAE: $637,500

BR: $418,000

NAW: $239,500

ASIA: $145,000

ME: $114,000

OCE: $92,000

FNCS Community Cup

Epic is running it back for Chapter 3 Season 2 with another FNCS Community Cup! This Duos event takes place May 25, perfect to get you in the mood for Finals.

Full details will be released closer to the time, but as usual, teams will have three hours to complete up to ten matches. Top performing pairs will win the new C3:S2 FNCS Outfit and matching Back Bling.
