On the other hand, many players were basically watching the qualifiers round to see how well their favourite streamer is going to perform. There were a lot of Fortnite streamers participating in the qualifiers, but the top ones didn’t manage to secure a position in the finals. To give you a short glimpse of what happened, here is how well the top streamers performed in the Solo Qualifiers.
Top Streamers’ Performance in Solo Qualifiers
To start with, fans of Symfuhnny were surely glad to see that he performed better than all the other top Fortnite streamers out there. However, he still only managed to score 46 points in the North America East qualifier and was ranked 63rd. The latter was a little far from securing a position in the World Cup Finals as he needed around 14 more points for that.
On the other hand, FaZe Clan’s Turner “Tfue” Tenney was ranked 137th in North America East, meaning that he didn’t even manage to reach the top 100. However, as he scored around 40 points, he became the second best among the top streamers. Tyler “Ninja” Blevins’ fans were surely disappointed after seeing that their favourite streamer scored only 37 points and was placed 218th, while Ryan “Chap” Chaplo from Team Liquid managed to get ranked 265thby scoring around 36 points.
Meanwhile, SypherPK was placed 430thafter he scored 32 points, while NICKMERCS managed to land at the 326thplace. For those who don’t know, NICKMERCS was the only top streamer playing in North America West. In addition to this, those who can be referred to as the top 20 most-watched Fortnite streamers also didn’t manage to reach the finals. Even some popular streamers including Tim “TimTheTatman” and Dakotaz skipped the qualifiers because of some reasons.
Yurrr, if you had a bad day on Fortnite, don’t trip. I played pretty bad tbh, still qualified, but sheesh, barely. Good days & bad days. Heads up, stay focused, and yo there’s 9 more weeks! 👊🏼
