One of esports’ most notable personalities, Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek chatted with his stream on July 15 about Fortnite esports and why it is the best game to earn cash in.
Ever since Fortnite was released in 2017, the competitive community has grown to massive heights.
On July 27, the $30 million Fortnite World Cup will begin and some players from the event will walk away millionaires.
To keep it in perspective, the winner of the Fortnite World Cup Solo event will win $3 million! That’s a lot of cash.
Piles of cash
While Shroud was waiting for his next Apex Legends match, a fan asked the CSGO veteran if he would ever return to Fortnite.
Even though he was quick to shoot down the possibility of his return, he did encourage other players to join in on the fun.
“I think Fortnite is your best best for Battle Royale if you’re trying to come up as a pro because it is just free money – even if you lose, you win.”
Every player who qualifies for the Fortnite World Cup will automatically earn $50,000, while other esport events only payout to the winners, not all participants.
Shroud followed up with, “Not many games are like that… if you lose, you win. Fortnite is one of them because they don’t know how to make their game and they have this pile of cash and they’re like ‘play'”.
Fortnite revolves around RNG and is impossible to predict, however, that is the beauty of Battle Royales.
With top professionals like Team Liquid’s Noah ‘Vivid’ Wright, Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, and Ghost Gaming’s Aydan will all be participating in the Fortnite World Cup fighting for their slice of the $30 million prize pool.
There will be two main parts to the Fortnite World Cup, a solo and duo event.
For those who aren’t interesting in competitive Fortnite, there will also be a Creative tournament with major personalities like Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and FaZe Clan’s Jack ‘Cizzorz’.
Who are you voting to win the Fortnite World Cup? Do you think a surprise duo will walk away with the Victory Royale next weekend?
