Meet the 15-year-old who qualified for both the solo and duos Fortnite World Cup

Published

on

NRG Benjyfishy is one of the best players in the world right now and he proved it by qualifying for both the solo and duos World Cup in the first week of qualifiers.

He went on Reddit to do an AMA so that people in the Fortnite community could learn more about who he is and how he qualified so quickly.

His answers ranged from why he dropped out of school to go to home school, to his practice routine, to what he hopes is his future in gaming.

The whole AMA can be found on /r/FortniteCompetitive but here are some of the best answers from it.

Question from Jdubwillie: “What do you see yourself doing in 5 years? Pro Gamer? Still Playing FN? Content Creator? Something else all together?”

Answer from Benjyfishy: “I really hope to still be something in esports /gaming 5 years, whether that be Fortnite, or any other game. Always liked the idea of running an organization, so might be something I do in the future. But honestly I have no idea, I’m just looking to secure my future by playing Fortnite, and trying to make the most of it while it is still relevant, which will hopefully be for quite a while.

“I’m not sure if my skills would translate to other games, partly the reason why I didn’t start playing apex. Since Fortnite is the first game for me to be big in, I’m not sure if I’d be good at any of the other big games that come out.”

Question from Zamlenha: “What was your parents reaction for qualifying for both solos and duos in the 1st week?”

Answer from Benjyfishy: “My whole family was watching the Fortnite stream, so when I went into the room to tell them I was currently 3rd after my last game, they thought I might drop since not all the games had finished, but I stayed third, and they were all in pretty big shock, especially when it was announced on the Fortnite stream.”

Question from jcow77: “How did your real life friends react?”

Answer: “I posted on my sc story that I won guaranteed $50k, and most people just replied saying that they thought I was either lying/ really happy for me. I have been getting homeschooled for like 2 months, so most of them know I am big in Fortnite, but I think most of them underestimate the money involved with it, so most of them think im lying when I tell them I won a large amount of money.

“The first time I won something big was the Montana black duo squad tournament, where me and savage came 1st and got like $10k, when I told my mates at school, it was pretty crazy and everybody was asking me about it throughout the entire day, even the teachers”

That’s a whole lot of V-Bucks

Question from habya7: “Is it hard balancing school work and fortnite? And how do you do it?”

Answer: “Part of the reason I dropped out to do homeschooling, is that I was finding balancing it too hard, I would either have to put more effort into one than the other, and it always caused conflicts. I could either put more of my effort towards school and do more work after school, or I could skip the work and do more practice, I typically focused more on Fortnite cause I was really passionate about it, but was very lucky that it paid off, would not be in a good position if what has happened recently hadn’t happened.”

Question from veechee: “What was your routine/schedule for practicing and what did you practice specifically each day/session?”

Answer: “My routine for practice normally goes like this :
Wake up around 2pm (I wake up this late cause my sleep schedule is shit and also there are no customs before then really).
Warmup in creative for 30 mins when I get on. Play customs from around 3pm-whenever customs end, normally around 11pm.
Chill/Do creative/Stream for around 2/3 hours, and then chill and play other games till around 3/4am, then sleep.”

Other comments pointed out how unhealthy a schedule that is for a 15 year old. It doesn’t seem like he has allotted time for actually home schooling or exercise built into his day.

On the flip side, when Fortnite is your first game to become a pro in, you can feel the need to keep grinding it and ride out the popularity. He has clearly made the most of this opportunity in Fortnite and will have plenty of time to get back on track with healthy habits after making some serious cash in New York.

Here is when Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 ends and Season 3 starts. The season is off to a heated start, and it’s only going to get more intense.

Fortnite Chapter 3 has just entered its second season, and it’s off to a great start. Here is when Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 ends and Season 3 starts.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 ended without much warning ahead of time from Epic Games. In fact, only a day before the Season ended did we get an announcement for Season 2.

Regardless, Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 is off to a hot start. We have new POIs, weapons, and a flashy new Battle Pass. There’s also no building to start and an ongoing turf war.

Whether you love or hate the new season, you might be wondering when the next one will start.

When Does Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 End?

fortnite season 2 the foundation destroyed

Fortnite Season 2 will end on June 3, 2022. This means the second season of the new chapter will last a little less than three months making it fairly short compared to Season 1.

This end date was found in the in-game files by data miners. Unlike last season where Epic Games listed two season end dates, there is only one end date this time around.

When Does Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Start?

New Fortnite seasons usually start within 24 hours after the previous one ends. Players can expect Chapter 3 Season 3 to start on June 4.

That being said, leaker Shiina believes there will be an extended period of downtime after the season ends to prep for Season 3. We will know more about this delay as time draws closer.

Is There a Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Live Event?

The final update for Fortnite Season 2 is here and we now have confirmation that, yes, there will be a live event!

The Season 2 live event will likely focus on stopping the new Doomsday Device from going off at Loot Lake. It is a very similar tower to that of Midas’ Doomsday Device in Chapter 2 Season 2.

What Season is Fortnite on?

Fortnite is currently in Chapter 3 Season 2. This is the second season of the third chapter which started after Chapter 2 Season 8. While most players refer to this season as “Season 2”, it’s technically Season 20.

There were 10 seasons in Chapter 1 and 8 seasons in Chapter 2.

For now, that’s everything we know about Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2. This chapter will likely span the next year or so and will be filled with exciting events.

We will keep you updated on when Fortnite Season 3 starts. For more Fortnite, check out the best controller settings for Chapter 3, and stay tuned for more news and guides.

Fortnite Season 2 adds not one but two Marvel characters to the game via the Battle Pass, but players might not be familiar with Prowler.

Season 2 started off hot with an amazing battle pass and a shocking removal of the game’s iconic building mechanic. Players were even more excited to see the Battle Pass had two crossover characters.

The first is Doctor Strange who has a new movie releasing in May. However, players may not be super familiar with the second crossover character. And it was surprisingly released alongside the Fortnite v20.20 update.

Prowler is an alias used by a number of people in the Marvel universe. But he most recently appeared in Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse as Miles Morales’ uncle. And the in-game skin is a similar depiction of the character.
