Console Scrims Launched

August 19, 2018 by FNPL

Put down your keyboards, FNPL is now cross platform! We have launched another Discord, "FNPL Console Scrims”. This will be an area for Xbox, PS4, and Switch players to play competitive snipe matches.

We're starting the snipes on NA-East for all platforms and will expand into more regions as the demand grows. We'll simply add another category for that region.

Console Schedule

Matches automatically start every 30 minutes. Simply check the #snipe-announcements channel for the next match time.

Also, we're not going to be running a league. As current Fortnite events are cross-platform we do not see the need to have a console only league. We are still open to having events and tournaments in the future.

Duo League Launching (NA & EU)

August 16, 2018 by FNPL

Separate from our NA Squads League, we’re launching a Duos League on September 1st for both NA and EU. The Duos League will take place the following days, while the Squads League schedule will remain the same:

NA Duo Schedule

EU Duo Schedule

We’re giving you time to invite your duos and practice for the league. The duos system allows you and a partner to pair up through the Discord commands: !duo <@partner> Ex: !duo @Putty. Feel free to invite your partner now!

This will allow us to keep track of duo teams on the leaderboards and profile pages. Once you are committed to a player, your points cannot be transferred to another. If you leave your duo partner, your points and wins will be wiped for the season.

Many members have voiced their desire for a Duo League and since Epic seems mainly focused on duos and solos for their Summer Skirmishes, it only makes sense for us to recognize more than just squads.

New Intermediate League

August 16, 2018 by FNPL

Open League - Open League is open to whoever wants to participate, this is where all teams start. The top 25 at the end of every season will be moved into the Intermediate League. You may join the league at any time in the season.

Intermediate League - Intermediate will consist of 100 teams. The top 25 from intermediate will be moved into the Champs League while the bottom 25 get moved into the Open League at the end of each season.

Champs League - Champs League will consist of 50 teams. The top performing teams from this league will be considered to move into the Pro League while the bottom 25 will be returned to the Intermediate League at the end of each season.

Pro League - Ran on the FN Pro League Discord. This contains organizations such as FaZe, TSM, Liquid, Content Creators, and the most talented pro players. We will be choosing the top players from the Champs League to be moved up the the Pro League.

Our league has grown so rapidly that the need for another division was clear. It allows players to progressively climb a ladder and improve their skill. This also gives a bit of a buffer between the open league and the exclusive leagues. Each division presents a new challenge to overcome.

Since we’re introducing a new division between Open and Champs, here’s how the Intermediate League will work for the current season:
