Epic Games have been really good for streaming Fortnite competing events in the past, but the publisher is back this time. According to Fortnite Tracker, Epic will not be streaming FNCS finals this weekend. Instead, the game encourages people who qualify for the event to flow on their own.
But if you want to watch a similar presentation, the Practice Server will be live for the event itself.
The Practice Server will not broadcast the entire event live, only the NAE, NAW and EU regions.
