Fortnite World Cup took place over the weekend in New York, a tournament organized by Epic Games with a $ 30 million prize pool (the largest ever for a video game tournament, although it has already been overtaken by The International de Dota 2 ).
More than 100 players qualified for the final, a brutal reduction from the 40 million who tried to win a seat. Who won the Solo competition was Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf, a 16-year-old resident of the United States.
Giersdorf took home a $3 million prize thanks to 59 points on the scorecard, almost double the runner-up (PSAlm with 33 points, which earned him a $1.8 million prize).
The winners of the Duos final were Emil Bergquist Pedersen from Norway and David W from Austria. Together they also won a $3 million prize. You can review all the action of the Fortnite World Cup in the videos below.
