FNCS MAJOR 2
Are you ready for FNCS Major 2? Grab your Duos partner and gear up, because the competition is set to begin on April 13, 2023! Exciting news for aspiring competitors - FNCS Major 2 will not be utilizing the Divisional Cup system, which means more players can participate in the tournament.
While the Divisional Cup system has been valuable in the past, its removal this season is a positive move. The focus is now on creating a more inclusive environment, allowing more players to test their skills and showcase their talent.
In the weekly sessions of FNCS Major 2, scores will be compiled from both Thursday's and Friday's FNCS Major Weekly Competition sessions. The top 50 duos from each region at the end of the Friday session will qualify for that week's FNCS Major 2 Weekly Finals. This means that every match will count, and players must remain at the top of their game to secure a spot in the Finals.
At the conclusion of each weekly FNCS Major 2 competition, all duos that competed will be awarded Series Points based on their results from that week. These points will be combined across three weeks to determine the top 40 duos that will qualify for the FNCS Major 2 Grand Finals. This means that every week counts towards the final leaderboard, so players must remain consistent to make it to the top.
FNCS Major 2 promises to be an intense and exhilarating competition. With the Divisional Cup system removed, more players have the opportunity to compete and make a name for themselves. So, gather your Duos partner and prepare to take on the best of the best in the FNCS Major 2 competition. It's time to show the world what you're made of!
