SypherPK and Ali-A took home first prize in Lachlan’s Fortnite Fashion Show World Cup with the creative use of a glitched emote.

Lachlan’s $10,000 Fortnite Fashion Show World Cup has wrapped up, and the winners are none other than the biggest names in the competition. Ali-A and SypherPK strung together several rounds of creativity to win the whole event.

The strategy the two had was an interesting one. Their entire competition was based on the glitched “Breakin'” emote in combination with the Jellie skin.

When you use the skin and emote together, the legs go wild. The duo knew this and even threw the first round with the later rounds in mind.

The strategy was simple and effective. Ali-A and Sypher knew that the first round was worth the least number of points, so they punted the “style” round in favor of the wow-factor that this glitched emote would elicit.

In the last round, the pair unveiled the glitch and generated the best pop from Lachlan, but it wasn’t enough to take them over the edge. They ended up tying and had to come back for a tiebreaker round.

The two reworked their story and reused the glitched emote to make sure that Lachlan knew it was intentional. In the end, they walked away with first place and $7,500 in prize money.

The two creators – who are undoubtedly the richest people in the competition – decided to divide their prize money between all of the qualifiers. They didn’t do it for the money – they just wanted to win.

Sypher and Ali-A both admitted that it felt like they had won the real World Cup when the competition had ended. The stakes were high and the satisfaction was evident.

During the event, Lachlan announced another Fashion Show competition – this time with Trios and for $20,000 in prizes.

This escalation has all the makings of something similar to the Cizzorz Deathruns from last year. They are a popular way to generate content, and we haven’t seen the last of them.
