The Fortnite World Cup open qualifiers are happening and players from all over the world are taking part in them. As the tournament is offering a $30 million prize money to the winner, players are trying their best to secure a spot in the finals. However, it seems like luck is just not on the side of some top streamers as they have once again failed to qualify for the finals.
Top Streamers Didn’t Qualify for the Finals
The third week of the open qualifiers came to an end and through them, we got to see that some top streamers have failed to secure a spot for themselves in the finals. Players such as Dennis “Cloak” Lepore, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, Symfuhny, and Jake “POACH” Brumleve are some of those streamers who have left many of their fans disappointed by performing really poor during the third week.
How the Players Performed
The popular Fortnite streamer “Ninja”, who is currently believed to be one of the best players out there, was placed at the 1,368thposition in the North America East server. The latter basically played around seven matches through which he scored only 20 points. For those who don’t know, Ninja scored around 37 points and was placed 218thin the first week of the open qualifiers. However, his performance seems to have dropped as the Fortnite pro didn’t perform so well during the third week.
I had 20+ points all kills just kept getting heavily contested and griefed. Life of competitive solos!
Duos next weekend with @Reverse2k_ grinding for those.

POACH also performed really poor during the third week and left many of his fans disappointed. He scored around 20 points out of which 17 were from eliminations. Symfuhny, on the other hand, got around 30 points and was placed at the 534thposition, while Cloak was placed at the 316thspot after he scored 34 points.
The third week of the qualifiers has once again revealed that having millions of followers on Twitch does not make you the best Fortnite player out there. We have seen some unknown players perform so well during the qualifiers, while some popular players have performed poorly. Not only this, but some popular players even decided to do some cheating during the third week. A player who goes by the name “XXiF” has been accused of teaming up with two other players to get some easy points. However, his case is yet to be looked into by Epic Games, but the proofs provided against him are really solid.
Fortnite World Cup Open Qualifiers Week 4
With the conclusion of the third week, the fourth week of the open qualifiers will begin on May 4. Those who have managed to take the highest positions in the past three weeks will compete in the Fortnite World Cup finals, which are currently scheduled to be held in July. The top streamers who failed to qualify still have a few more chances. It will be interesting to see which streamer manages to secure a spot in the finals first.
