Fortnite gives away $3 million to its first-ever solo world champion, a 16-year-old from Pennsylvania

Fortnite has wrapped its first-ever massive sporting event in New York’s Arthur Ashe tennis stadium. It was anyone’s game: It didn’t matter how famous a player was nor what large organization was backing each member of the all-male playing field.

Beating out other pros and famous streamers, Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf, 16, made a name for himself by dominating from the first round and ultimately taking home the $3 million grand prize for individual players. That’s the largest-ever payout for a single player in an esports tournament.
After securing a victory in the first round and nine in-game kills, Giersdorf went on to rack up dozens of in-game kills each round, until he ended up with 59 points — a huge lead over the second-place winner.

Fortnite has wrapped its first-ever massive sporting event in New York’s Arthur Ashe tennis stadium. It was anyone’s game: It didn’tmatter how famous a player was nor what large organization was backing each member of the all-male playing field.

Beating out other pros and famous streamers, Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf, 16, made a name for himself by dominating fromthe firstround and ultimately taking home the $3 million grand prize for individual players. That’s the largest-ever payout for a single player in an esports tournament.
After securing a victory in the first round and nine in-game kills, Giersdorf went on to rack up dozens of in-game kills each round, until he ended up with 59 points — a huge lead over the second-place winner.
The stadium was more packed Sunday than on previous days, when Epic games hosted a duos tournament and an amateurs vs. pros competition. More than a million viewers tuned in to watch online, according to Twitch, YouTube and Fortnite in-game stats.
Giersdorf’s social media accounts, including YouTube and Twitter, have grown exponentially in followers after his win. He’s signed to Sentinels, an esports organization based out of Los Angeles.
“He’s such a good player, it’s impossible to not know who he is,” said Perri Cox, 17, who attended the Fortnite World Cup for all three days with several of her friends she met online playing the game. “I don’t think casual players knew of him. But if you were following the competitive side of things, you definitely were aware of him.”
In fifth place was 13-year-old Thiago Lapp — also known as “King.” Lapp is the only non-American to make top five, and represents Argentina and, more broadly, the South American Fortnite region. Thirteen is the minimum age to compete in the World Cup.
Lapp made waves during Sunday’s competition for playing extra aggressive, chasing down enemiesat times when he didn’t need to pick fights. He accumulated dozens of points from in-game kills alone, earning $900,000.
Everyone who participated in the games on Sunday, including those who placed last with no points at all, takes home at least $50,000 for playing. That makes this one of the biggest tournaments in esports so far. Epic Games is promising there will be more competitive events later this year.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
