After 2 Days of Prep, the Fortnite Crew competed for Week 6 of the World Cup Qualifiers

The advantages of bootcamp was apparent right off the bat. While Rass and Whai didn’t qualify for the Finals on Sunday, they got very close. Severin and Tj would end up with 49 Points to wrap up the week. With one more week in London, as well as the IRL team bonding that took place, the future looked bright for Myztro Fortnite.

Week 9 saw the biggest dip from Myztro ever, with only Severin making the week’s finals. However, as Epic Games was getting ready for the Fortnite Celebrity Pro-Am, Myztro had an extra week to prepare for the final week of competition, and they had some tricks up their sleeves.

Week 10: Duos

Severin and Rass: 72 Points, Qualified for Finals

Finals

Whai and Tj: 66 Points, 28th Overall

Week 10 was the closest Myztro has ever gotten to booking a ticket to New York City’s World Cup Finals. Both Duos shocked the community and switched up teammates, and the all-new cohesion between the new duos was apparent right off the bat. Both duos qualified for Finals on Friday, and while Severin and Rass’s day didn’t go as planned, Tj and Whai were having the biggest games of their careers, snagging 2 Victory Royales and 32 Total Eliminations. Tj’s stream even had over 1,000 viewers for Games 9 and 10, as the whole Myztro community came together to see history in the making. Sadly, they finished right outside of the qualification threshold, and didn’t get a chance to go to NYC.

Tj and Whai win Game 6 in Week 10 of the Fortnite World Cup Online Open Finals.

Looking Ahead

Myztro Fortnite has improved and excelled since playing with EU’s best in the World Cup Qualifiers. They’ve grown as players, and we’d be amiss if we said we weren’t proud of them. Every day, they continue to improve, and we’ll see them excel in the near future.

Myztro’s Fortnite players will continue playing in events, starting with the Trios Cash Cup on July 13th and 14th.
