Kami and Setty are FNCS Invitational Champions

Last weekend, in-person Fortnite finally returned for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic, as the $1m FNCS Invitational crowned its new champions duo in Raleigh, North Carolina.

As everyone was keeping an eye on the Fortnite World Champion duo Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf and Matthew “Mero” Faitel, who both have previously won multiple top-tier FNCS titles, the duo only got a rather disappointing 36th-place finish.

It was the Polish duo of Michał “Kami” Kamiński and Iwo “Setty” Zając from team Become Legends who emerged victorious with the score of 264 placement points, 52 eliminations, and four victory royales combined to form a total of 364 points. They take home both the title and $200,000 in prize money. QUEASY and VENO duo takes the runner-up spot. 

Here’s the top 5 of the FNCS Invitational 2022:

Placement Ranking Player Duo Placement Points Elims Victory Royales Points
1 Kami + Setti 264 52 04 368
2 Queasy+Veno 244 52 02 348
3 Cold+Cented 230 39 01 308
4 Th0masHD+ Trippernn 218 27 0 272
5 Phzin+Kitoz 188 31 0 250

Viewership statistics

Even though the FNCS Invitational 2022 was a reminder of how thrilling and exciting the Fortnite live events can be, the event’s viewership was rather disappointing when compared to 2019’s Fortnite World Cup, which was the game’s last in-person live event before the pandemic. 

According to the statistics provided by Esports Charts, the viewership of the FNCS Invitational peaked at 381 915 viewers, with an average viewer count of 260 360. In 11 and half hours of airtime, the event accumulated more than three million hours watched.

However, these statistics don’t even come close to 2019’s Fortnite World Cup, which had a peak viewership of over 2.3 million viewers, with an average of one million viewers and 22 million watched in 19 hours of airtime. 

Glimpse into the Fracture

During the final day of the FNCS Invitational, what was once considered rumors and whispers about Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 5, or possibly Fortnite Chapter 4, finally came to light. Epic Games has officially announced that the current Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 4 will end on December 3, 2022, with a final event titled Fracture.

With Chapter 1 having 10 seasons and Chapter 2 having 8 seasons, Chapter 3 is the chapter with the least number of seasons in Fortnite history.

 

The new Fortnite Chapter 4 will feature new skins and it is expected to have a new map along with some new in-game mechanics. Rumors and leaks have it that Fortnite will add rideable flying animals as well as a first-person mode. 

Thanks to new additions to the in-game mechanics, Fortnite creative will also be improved with Creative 2.0 to provide creators with more freedom by giving them new tools to create maps.
