Two London-based esports organisations finished strongly at the Fortnite FNCS Global Championship 2023 on the weekend.

20-year-old Tundra Esports player Setty, from Poland, finished in second place with his Gaimin Gladiators duo partner – and fellow Polish player – Kami. They each took home $325,000, giving Setty over $1m in career earnings to date, according to Tundra on social media.

And 15-year-old Guild Esports player Chico, from Bosnia and Herzegovina, finished third with his Valiant duo partner TruleX, with each player receiving $200,000.

A small portion of winnings will also go to the players’ orgs, as usual.

The FNCS Global Championship saw the duo play in six matches during the finals, racking up 268 points and securing two Victory Royale wins in the final two matches – helping them grab third place overall.

The tournament was won by North American players Cooper and Mero at Copenhagen’s Royal Arena, who each received $500,000.

Elsewhere, UK player Pinq finished tenth with Vic0, and UK player Veno (of Monaco Esports) finished 11th with Queasy.

The news comes a few days after the FNCS Global Championship 2023 broadcast talent and players were listed, and after Guild Esports signed new Fortnite players Blacha, Chico and PabloWingu, replacing Hen and Anas.

Setty said: “I’m very happy because we were contested 6/6 by Asian players DayDus and Stain, and I wanted to say sorry that we couldn’t go back-to-back, but it is what it is. I want to thank you for the support we had throughout the whole year, our families, and Kami for playing with me. That’s it – onto the next one.”

Chico said: “Going into game five, we needed to turn things around and start to dominate the game, which thankfully with keeping our nerve and flexing our skills, we did! I am so thankful for my partner, TruleX and Guild for all of their hard work and support leading up to this point and looking forward to the future.”

Jasmine Skee, CEO of Guild Esports, added: “Chico is a new signing for Guild Esports, expanding our Fortnite professional roster. Chico is an up-and-coming talent, which we’re so excited about helping him grow into the world renowned player we know he’ll become.

“I am so proud of all three of our Guild players that competed at Sunday’s grand final, however, I am extremely proud of how well Chico played. Chico, along with his duo partner, managed to turn their luck around in the penultimate and last match on Sunday evening, after placing first in both games this rocketed them up to third spot – this is what competitive gaming is about!

“Chico’s outstanding showing at the FNCS final underlines the calibre of talent we can attract to Guild Esports. Finishing third in such a competitive arena is no small feat, and on behalf of the entire Guild family, I would like to congratulate him on an amazing performance.”

It’s not the first time Tundra and Guild have done well in the same Fortnite esports tournament. Last year, a Guild and Tundra duo won the Gamers8 Fortnite Zero Build tournament.
