Week 2 of the Fortnite Champion Series in Europe (EU) saw absolute domination from the winners. Jimmy “Ritz” Christensen, “beehive,” Theo “crue” Ferrer, and Moussa “chapix” Faour played a near-perfect final round. Their Sunday performance displayed just how good this team is, with the all-Swedish squad totaling 132 points through six games. After finishing second in Week 1, Ritz, crue, beehive, and chapix turned it up a level to win Week 2. This squad will be a clear force in the European region throughout the qualifiers and the Season Finals.
A fan-favorite squad of Kyle “Mongraal” Jackson, Jaden “Wolfiez” Ashman, Benjy “benjyfishy” David Fish, and Nathan “nayte” Berquignol finished in third place. There are a lot of great players, but not all of them mesh well. Mongraal and benjyfishy tried out several different players in their squad, and it appears they finally found the right mix. If this squad continues to mesh, they will also be a team to watch out for. In Week 2, they finished with 59 total points and earned a qualifying spot.
Never a doubt
Ritz, beehive, crue, and chapix left no question regarding who would win EU Week 2. They started the day with two games with double-digit eliminations. In the first match, they scored 15 eliminations and finished in third place. Then they continued with a 14-elimination win. The Swedish squad held the lead after two games and only expanded it. In a game with a large amount of randomness, this Fortnite team left nothing up to chance. They only had one game where they finished outside of the top three. Their 132 total points almost doubled that of the second-place team, who had 68 points.
In second, VP JAMSIDE, Gambit.fwexY, Gambit.letw1k3, and Secret_Domentos beat out everyone else. This team racked up 68 total points without earning a win. They did so simply by remaining consistent. The squad earned placement points in every game besides one. Additionally, 41 eliminations in the six games boosted the squad to second place.
