After a long wait, the FNCS is back in action as the Season 4 event kicks off on 9th October. Fans and players alike got a taste of what the season will bring with the FNCS Warmup last month but this is the real deal now. The tournaments will last until 1st November when the Grand Finals begin. However, the Qualifies for various regions begins this week. 

There are bound to be some classic FNCS moments throughout October as the tournament returns to preferred Trios format. Here's more information on that and everything else you need to know about the Season 4 event. 

FNCS Chapter 2 Season 4 schedule 

The tournaments will be split up into four separate weeks. For the first three weeks, the Qualifiers will take place, with fewer and fewer teams making it out each week. Finally, in the final week, the Grand Finals for the various regions will begin and the champions will be crowned.
