— SEN Side (@AspectFN_) August 28, 2021
Darkish horses in these proficient areas could be difficult to search out since solely the very best groups make the Season 7 Finals save for a number of outliers. On this regard, nonetheless, Side, Cazz and Whofishy considerably match the invoice of a darkish horse. Not many would pencil them in because the winners with different extra recognizable names within the subject. Nonetheless, these three gamers have an uncontested Nice Park, which provides a variety of advantage to this decide.
Side, Cazz and Whofishy appear to lurk on leaderboards very often. Individuals might overlook that they completed eighth in FNCS Season 6, fourth within the final DreamHack Money Cup Additional, and second of their warmth. These outcomes, an uncontested spot and ample Storm Surge choices ought to bode properly Side, Cazz and Whofishy.

Dubs and Megga picked up veteran participant Rocaine in Season 6 and have performed properly since, ending sixth within the final FNCS Finals and successful the third Season 7 Qualifier.
Contemplating their physique of labor over the previous few years, it appears odd to name Dubs and Megga darkish horses. Nevertheless, not many would decide this trio to win outright. They’ll have an uncontested drop at Boney Burbs, which is all any crew might hope for within the Grand Finals. It will not be surprising to see Dubs, Megga and Rocain atop the leaderboard after 12 matches on Sunday.

This choice retains with the operating pattern of Fortnite tournaments—the place minimal off-spawn fights usually breed success. Bully has seemingly landed at Steamy Stacks for the reason that begin of Chapter 2 and battles all challengers tooth and nail. Fortunately, he, criizux and BankTeller ought to have a comparatively simple time off-spawn within the Season 7 Finals.
This crew has not executed something excellent this season, however Fortnite is a sport the place something can occur.

It’s all a matter of placing all the things collectively throughout 12 matches and two days.
Im simply trolling about holly nonetheless going right here. 😀 https://t.co/0frgDtPifQ
— BBG Kreo (@KreoFN) August 29, 2021
Clix, Bucke and Kreo may need a tricky run within the finals in the event that they stick with Retail Row as their drop. The identical sentiment applies to the French Candian trio of PaMstou, wCarey and Fatch. Each groups have dedicated to the identical POI, and historical past doesn’t favor these circumstances. Sure, one might win convincingly over the opposite, however these are two of Season 7’s finest trios. Storm Surge gained’t be a problem, however loot and rotations could possibly be with out query.

One other off-spawn battle between Group Blake and Group Voil will greater than possible happen at Holly Hatchery. Once more, this might end in catastrophe for each groups relying on their loot and luck. It’s value noting that Blake, Scoped and Okis gained persistently off the spawn in Warmth A, the place they in the end ran away with the win. They’ll want extra of the identical within the Season 7 Finals as they give the impression of being to sq. off towards Voil, Snake and Xccept.
Now that FNCS is just about over and I can break the persona a lot respect to @pgodtv‘s trio they made the good move to not contest and it labored out for them, all of the shit speak was only for an uncon spot clearly. ggs. zones simply didnt go our manner so simple as that
— G2 MackWood (@MackWood1x) August 28, 2021
The 2 groups led by MackWood and Pgod have had their fair proportion of disputes and drama all through Season 7. Each groups drew Warmth B, which didn’t work out properly for MackWood, Tragix and Illest. Pgod’s crew completed in first-place after switching their drop spot in heats . Nevertheless, as destiny would have it, MackWood, Tragix and Illest rallied within the last Reboot Spherical match to qualify for the Season 7 Finals. It’ll be attention-grabbing to see if MackWood and Pgod determine to contest each other at Craggy Cliffs or if one leaves for a greater probability at victory.
— FS Degen (@DegenFN) August 28, 2021
Rounding out the spectacular checklist of contested drop spots is Corny Advanced. Though it modified in patch v17.50, Co1azo’s crew and Degen’s crew appear to be sticking with the placement.
