The Fortnite World Cup immediately changed the lives for some of its top performers in the blink of an eye.
His ultra-aggressive style of play allowed him to quickly become a fan-favorite for those tuning-in live to the event from across the globe, and eventually managed to secure a pay-day of $900,000.
King originally hails from Argentina and was the only non-North American player to finish the Solos Finals in the Top 5. At the young age of 13, he just barely made the cut to be eligible for the tournament.
Following the conclusion of the event, a video surfaced of King and his father sharing an especially heartwarming moment after such a successful tournament.
In the video, you can hear King’s father proclaim “todo tuyo,” which translates to “all yours” in English, and shows his father’s pure joy.
Such a life-changing sum of money could make all the difference for any family. With King’s impressive performance at the Fortnite World Cup, we’re sure he’ll find himself back in the winner’s circle in no-time.
Players and community members expressed their newfound fandom of King throughout the tournament, including OpTic Gaming Owner and CEO Hector ‘H3cz’ Rodriguez.
