Epic Games placed solo mode as the main game mode in Chapter 2 Season 3 of Fortnite. The prize pool is around US$ 5 million in the six competitive regions. That weekend the players entered with the hope of qualifying for the second phase. This first phase would be exhausting, with players facing up to nine hours playing without interruption. Remember that the top 50 players from Europe, Brazil, NA East and NA West will reach stage two after session three. The top 25 competitors from Oceania, the Middle East and Oceania will do the same.
On the first day, Rezon continued his great phase in that solo FNCS. He won 21 eliminations and a Victory Royale in the six games of session three. Rezon ay’s 62 points secured a place in the next round towards the Grand Final. The player had won the Mongraal Cup in July, now he guarantees himself as one of the most solid players in Europe.
BL Henchman, also known as BL Hen, came in second with 47 points. He totaled 13 eliminations and a Victory Royale in the six games played. After finishing the second season's Chapter 2 FNCS Invitational in tenth place, he will now dispute the title. Other notables in the top 2 include DreamHack Anaheim Champion, 50T MrSavage, DreamHack Online Champion teeq, NRG benjyfishy, FaZe Mongraal and many others.
On the second day NRG benjyfishy decided to show up. He continued an impressive sequence of solo placements with a victory in the second FNCS Qualifier. In the six games, benjy made 23 eliminations for a total of 38 points. As a result of his performance in the Grand Finals, Benjy secured his second stage in two qualifications in two days. It seems that the young competitor of NRG Esports discovered the goal this season.
Noahreyli OVA finished in second place with 54 points. Like benjyfishy, Noahreyli is having a solid season after coming in second in a Solo Cash Cup. Noahreyli has had 25 eliminations, the highest among players. Other notables for finishing in the top 50 include 100T MrSavage, teeq, MCES Andilex, FaZe Mongraal, Liquid mitr0 and ATL LeTsHe.

This is PGOD's second impressive showing in solo competitions, ranking 17th at DreamHack Online Open last month. He was ahead of other big players, including BBG Bucke, who came right behind him.
TSM Khanada, 100T Ceice, NRG Edgey, NRG Clix, Liquid Cented, Liquid Riversan and FaZe Dubs were others to guarantee themselves in a good position on the first day. Players have three more heats to accumulate points in the series or finish in the top 50 to reach stage two.
On the second day, Liquid STRETCH and Bugha topped the leaderboard in eastern NA. However, STRETCH is standing out as the best solo player in its region. Last time, he won first place in the DreamHack Online Open. After doing very poorly on the first day, STRETCH moved up from 100th place in the semi-finals to first place in the Grand Finals. He accumulated 57 points with 16 eliminations.

Middi, just 15, was well placed in western NA. His 68 point performance came from 20 eliminations and no Victory Royales. It was a much-needed display by young competitor XTRA Gaming, who did not finish in the top 50 on the first day.
XTRA Gaming member Kenshi finished just behind Middi in second place. With 63 points, he drew with Arkhram from 100Thieves. However, Kenshi's Victory Royale lifted him over Arkhram on the leaderboard.
