Fortnite World Cup Solo Tournament which took place on July 28, 2019, had one of the biggest single player payouts at $3 million. A total of 100 players, from all around the world competed in a series of 6 games to take the crown of the best Fortnite player in the world.
Tfue, who many consider the most famous Fortnite player in the world, had won the TwitchCon Fall Skirmish Duos with Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lapore earlier and competed in multiple LAN tournaments.
All eyes were on the superstar, but unfortunately, he was not able to deliver a top tier performance and fed into the hype. Ending up below-average, Turner barely made a dent and was eliminated quite early on in multiple games.
The 21-year-old came in at 67th, earning four points from eliminations and the rest from placement. He was seen being picked off by comparatively low profile players who made easy work of him. He managed to get 1 point from elimination and placed 79, 63 and 65 in the first 3 games.
In the second game, a 13-year-old Argentinian player ‘King’ was seen making quick work of Tfue, denying him placement points as he made his way into the play zone.
However, things looked better for the starlet in the second half of the tournament. He managed to get 3 placement points coming in at 22nd in the fourth game. Game 5 was another lackluster performance, but in the final game, Turner came out playing aggressively and managing to get 3 eliminations. He was then taken out by Kurtz, earning no placement points as he finished just outside top 25.
After the tournament, Tfue was seen tweeting ‘GGs Only’ and congratulating Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf who secured the top spot and won the $3 million prize money. Nonetheless, Tfue did not walk away empty-handed as he earned $50,000 from the tournament.
Congrats @bugha you deserve it buddy ??
