The mom of a British teen who won more than $1 million playing the wildly popular video game Fortnite once threw his Xbox in the trash - but now, the high schooler is using his winnings to buy her a house, according to a new report. Competing in the first-ever Fortnite World Cup, one of the largest e-sports events in history. With the first of what can only be anticipated as many more annual Fortnite World Cup events, Epic has yet to announce when qualifying tournaments for next year's World Cup will begin, but I'm betting they'll probably start up again at the end of 2019. Well, it certainly worked out well for Hayden Krueger, Fortnite's latest World Cup Winner.
Some 40 million players competed for a chance to play in the finals, which was narrowed down to 100 contestants from 30 countries.
Giersdorf, who plays for the Los Angeles-based esports team Sentinels, said he planned on putting his winnings in savings. Tyler "Ninja" Blevins didn't qualify to participate in the tournament, but made a special appearance during two other portions of the World Cup.
The Fortnite World Cup finals in New York City, featuring a prize pool of $30 million, will wrap up Sunday. While they played a strong game throughout the six rounds, they couldn't secure any victories and didn't get enough kills.
Jaden stated that his mother was skeptical about the tournament and that she was never in favour of him choosing games over his homework.
Cristiano Ronaldo not to face rape charges
Mayorga filed a civil lawsuit in September 2018 accusing Ronaldo of raping her, then paying her $375,000 in hush money. Video evidence, showing interactions between the victim and perpetrator before and after the alleged crime, was lost.
The first prize went to David "Aqua" W. from Austria and his partner Emil "Nhyrox" Bergquist Pedersen from Norway who will split the $3 million prize.
"Now I've proved to her that I can do stuff, I'm really happy", Ashman said. Damion "XXiF" Cook had been found guilty of cheating by Epic Games, which developed Fortnite, but was later allowed to rejoin competition.
She said: If I'm honest with you I've been quite against him gaming.
"Often, in games, there are really very few players who can make a lot of money and be really well known", added Depauw, who plays the video game for up to four hours a day. "I might buy a auto for my mum too, as she drives a little Fiat 500". "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".
