Fortnite has gotten the best of most of us.

There's been an abundance of paddies thrown as the battle royale pushes patience to the limit. Whether it be from utter bad luck, sweat's mockery, or some rather unfortunate connection issues, the fuse that ignites exhilaration into rage is quite a short one.

That's the case for Fortnite legends too, as the most recent Fortnite Championship Series has taken a toll on Kyle "Mongraal" Jackson and Martin "MrSavage" Foss Andersen who fell victim to a stressful glitch.

FNCS drama erupts as MrSavage and Mongraal glitch out of Semi-Finals

Mongraal and MrSavage are the most-supported Fortnite esports players in Europe, only rivalled around the world by the likes of Kyle "Bugha" Giersdorf in North America, and with Mongraal returning to competitive fixtures for the first time since 2022, fans tuned in solely to watch the iconic duo.

But in match one of the lower bracket, neither MrSavage nor Mongraal were able to queue up as a random duo glitched into the heats, and even managed to fly under the radar in the lobby for a full 10 minutes of gameplay.

"We didn't get in?" quizzed a seemingly vexed MrSavage on Twitter, all the while the Semi-Finals raged on.

The disruption finally saw a pause to play and lead to an hour delay of the FNCS heats, with Epic Games working on a way to restart the Semi-Final with the correct players.

With the restart of the lower bracket though, MrSavage was able to clutch up in Map 1 for a Victory Royale combining with his teammate for eight kills, which put them on the right path for qualification, and ultimately booked their spot in the Grand Final.

After one heck of a stressful afternoon though, MrSavage was spotted smashing his headset into oblivion while celebrating his victory, clearly not at all conscious about the other two maps, as emotions boiled over.

For Mongraal, this is quite a feat too, having taken some time out from competing to focus on content over the last few years, meaning this is the first time he has qualified for an FNCS Grand Final in four years.
