There are three qualifying rounds this season. The top five teams from each Qualifier will advance directly to the FNCS Finals, for a total of 15 teams.
- round 1: from July 6 to 10
- round 2: from July 11 to 15
- Round 3: from July 16 to 18
Each Qualifier will take place over four Rounds, with the fourth round having a set lobby competing to qualify.
There are three Semifinals sessions, each taking place on July 21-24, 2022. Victory Royales and consistent performance, such as consistently placing in the top six, will be the key to qualifying for the FNCS Finals.
The island has changed significantly in Chapter 3 Season 3.

Here is a short description of how the Finals trailer works.
- Session 1: 5 Matches; 2.5 hours; 1st – 50th on Series Points Leaderboard
- Session 2: 6 Matches; 3 hours; 1st – 61st in series points leaderboard
- Session 3: 6 Matches; 3 hours; 1st – 73rd in series points leaderboard
There are two ways to be crowned FNCS champions this season: by achieving Match Point or by earning the most points after completing all 12 matches.
With Match Point, a duo team can end the competition early by earning 475 total points and three Victory Royales. Once a team has reached these thresholds, they will be declared the FNCS Champion.
If no team achieves Match Point for match 12, the team with the most points accumulated at the end of match 12 will be crowned the FNCS Champion.
FNCS Chapter 3 Season 3 – Point Scoring System
The points format has changed in individual lobby rounds and is more focused on providing a balance between placement points and elimination points. This new points format will apply to all individual lobby rounds within FNCS Qualifiers, Semi-Finals, and Finals.
You can see the point structure for each round in the FNCS Chapter 3 Season 4 Ruleset.
