Titans Season 3


If you haven’t been living under a rock then you’ve definitely heard that the third season of FNF Titans is kicking off on September 25th. FNF is looking for 24 teams, 12 from EU and 12 from NA, to take on the challenge and fight intense 7 vs 7 matches. The EU bracket will run Saturdays at 18:00 UTC on September 25th, October 2nd, and October 16th, while the NA bracket will run Saturdays at 6:00 PM EDT on September 25th, October 9th, and October 23rd. The winners of their respective brackets will meet on an undisclosed date and compete to be the next FNF Titan! The NA segment of FNF took victory in Season Two. Will the EU segment create a team powerful enough to take back the championship or will the NA segment hold on to the title? If you are interested in participating you must sign up your team by Sunday, September 12th at 4:00 PM EDT. You may sign up here!


Halloween 2021


Those of you who’ve been around a while know that FNF enjoys their Halloween events. Due to 2020 being an interactive dystopian horror flick itself, FNF decided to postpone their spirited event. This year however, the team at FNF are dead set to bring back Halloween in a Spooktacular fashion! Are you ready for an eerie night of fights and frights?!


Tuesday night tanks... on Saturday?


The last rendition of TNT showcased the amount of interest there was from the community and confirmed the already expected difficulty of hosting a joint EU/NA session on the weekdays. It also brought to light the glaring issues with balancing and the necessity of a clever design. All of you asset junkies can breathe a sigh of relief because TNT will be making its return at the end of the year and will be better than ever. TNT will be moved to Saturday to accommodate both time zones and critical changes in design and layout will bring a better quality Tank Company vs Tank Company scenario. We appreciate everyone’s patience with the TNT 1 and TNT 2 live tests, and we look forward to bringing you TNT 3 (though some re-branding may be necessary)!


Are you tired of Destroy and Uplink yet?


Undoubtedly, “Destroy” and “Uplink” are two of the most frequent game modes in FNF. These game modes lend exciting firefights and interesting plays, but at the end of the day many of you want more. A couple of months ago we released the first version of FNF’s newest game mode: “Scavenger Hunt.” And since the release we’ve received tons of feedback and spent hours tweaking the performance to bring balance and exciting game play. We think we have created something incredible! With “Scavenger Hunt” nearing completion and a full release to our Mission Makers, we’re set to tackle two more new game modes “Search” and “Drop Site”. Think on those names and guess what these new game modes will bring to the event. Needless to say, if you’re tired of “Destroy” and “Uplink” we have fresh content heading your way.


A year of Patreon


It has been a whole year since we launched our Patreon. What a year it has been for Friday Night Fight! With your support and generosity, we were able to launch dedicated servers making FNF available to more people and extending across oceans for all to enjoy. Without it, we wouldn't have the entire EU segment which has grown to be far more popular than we had initially anticipated. It's effectively grown to be half of what we are today. That is thanks to all who come to enjoy the same things we enjoy every Friday night. But we cannot say thanks enough to the patrons who gave without needing to and we are proud of what we've accomplished with your generosity in such a short time and hopefully, you are too. There's plenty more to come and so much to plan. We wouldn't be what we are without you. As a special thanks, we have released the previously exclusive Nightowl TS Soundpack to all users for FREE.


You may find the soundpack here. Here's to another year of FNF!


The final quarter of 2021


The year is rapidly coming to a close. With only four months left, we still have so much more to bring you before 2022. Many quality of life additives have already been pushed into the framework and several more are being bug-tested and prepped before they roll out. We have a few special events in the pipeline before the end of the year and we’re excited to be able to play them with you! Our motto for the next four months is “SOON!” Very soon you’ll have more content than you’ll know what to do with!


Staff Spotlight



Nemesis is the team leader of FNF’s Mission Team. He is responsible for the review and vetting of each of the missions you play every single week. He also runs our Titans 7v7 PvP tournament to help bring a different flavor of fighting to the FNF plate. Nemesis joined FNF in August of 2020 after watching it on Liru’s stream and asking if his community leader FINN from Scandi Recon wanted to try out the event. He was brought aboard as an EU Staff member to assist Arkor with missions on November 11th, 2020.


Nemesis is a competitive player who enjoys the fifty minute one life fights and that his community is one of the most recognized communities in FNF. He’d like to give a big shout out to his community mission reviewers Bae and Ghoster. He appreciates, very much, their assistance and their willingness to help him and the Staff in running the event.
