The Fortnite Championship Series (FNCS) begins in less than 2 weeks. Here are my top teams to look out for moving into Week 1

3. Cented, Edgey, EpikWhale, Rehx

This squad is hands down the favorite to win FNCS in the NA West region. EpikWhale confirmed the rumors that he would be joining the existing trio of Cented, Edgey, and Rehx

If you don’t know anything about NA West competitive, let me fill you in. Well for starters, Cented, Edgey, and Rehx got first place in over half of the tournaments they played in, with 9 first place finishes across the FNCS and cash cup circuits

Adding EpikWhale to the mix, yeah - the same guy who won a cool $1.2m from the World Cup Finals, is only going to make the team stronger. My money is on these guys to take home the trophy. Mark. My. Words.

2. Mongraal, Benjyfishy, Aquaa, Stompy

These nutters make my list with no explanation needed. But since writing is my job, here you go

Although none of these players have made an official statement of intent to play with one another for FNCS, they’ve made it quite obvious by scrimming together on stream almost every day

Instead of getting into how insane each of these players are, which you all should know by now, I’ll go from a different take. I was planning on putting these boys at #1, but there are still lingering questions regarding their synergy

Think about it, none of these guys are playing with their OG duo partners from World Cup. Mongraal and Mitr0, Benjyfishy and MrSavage, Aquaa and Nyhrox, and Stompy and Tschinken have all split since July. I have no doubts that these guys will still be top performers, but it’s simply too early to throw in the towel and hand them the gold

1. Bugha, Stretch, Saf, Zayt

Topping my list, who else did you think was going here? Bugha announced the squad’s intention to team up right when Chapter 2’s arrival confirmed FNCS would be under the squads playlist

Throwing this squad above Mongraal’s could be seen as a “hot take” - but let me explain why that just isn’t the case. Where chemistry is a point of concern for Mongraal, it’s the exact opposite for this team

Saf and Zayt have been friends and teammates for an incredibly long time, ditto Bugha and Stretch. They all have impressive feats individually and also grouped with one another. This squad hands down has the most experience when it comes to under-pressure situations and have almost always thrived. I personally don’t foresee a future where this squad doesn’t top the leaderboards

Let us know if you agree, disagree, love, or hate this list on Twitter
