For the general fan of competitive Fortnite, most of these players are unknowns as they are currently free agents yet to be signed to big name organizations. But, just because a player is not signed does not mean they are a fantastic player. Generally, if a player does qualify for the World Cup, they should put off signing to a new team, that way their new organization does not take a percentage of the prize pool.
The more popular, well known players such as Secret Mongraal, MrSavageM, and Atlantis Mitro still have yet to qualify for the solo events, despite all qualifying for the duo portion of the World Cup. With many more qualification spots left to grab, it is highly unlikely that at least one of, if not all three will end up qualifying for New York in the solo events.
What did you think of Week 3 in the European region? Were you excited to see some of the lesser known players advance to the World Cup?
