16-Year-Old Wins $3 Million at the First 'Fortnite' World Cup

This is Scrooge Mc Duck amounts of money

The first ever Fortnite World Cup has ended with $30 million of prizes awarded and one teenager from Pennsylvania walking away $3 million richer.

U.S. gamer Kyle Giersdorf, alias "Bugha", became the first Fortnite World Cup solo champion on Sunday, winning $3 million (€2.7 million) at the age of 16.

"It's growing in a way that I've never seen", Chang, a former professional player of the online battle game "Heroes of the Storm", stated.

The duos winners, Emil Bergquist Pedersen from Norway and his Austrian partner, David W, took home a total of $3m in prize money. In fourth, Nate "Kreo" Kou, 18, from Parkland, Florida, won $1.05 million. He told CBC, "I wake up at like 1 p.m. or 3 p.m. and then I'll play until 3 a.m. into the night".

"Everything is awesome and I can't really believe that this all really happened", Aqua added. From there I knew I had to have consistent games, which you can't always rely on placement but also kills. Fourth place was Kreo from NA East, with a prize of $1,050,000 (£852,000). His prize? A cool $3 million, plus the undeniable knowledge that his life has been forever transformed.

His Twitter account alone boasts over 200,000 followers, and quite a few of his fans celebrated the win along with him. Both tweets immediately began to go viral, amassing likes and retweets in the blink of an eye.

Nyhrox and Aqua got 51 points to Wolfiez and Rojo's 47. As Polygon reports, he's a member of what's being called the "controller gang" - a group of Fornite pros who prefer controllers over the traditionally-favored mouse and keyboard setup.
