It’s a sad day for parents who’ve wanted to castigate their children for wasting their time with video games as a Fortnite player is now over four million dollars richer having just won an international competition in what the e-sport.
Kyle Giersdorf – aka Bugha – has taken out the solo finals of the Fortnite World Cup and scored the equivalent of a $4.3 million first prize, and also made himself an unassailable comeback for 14 year olds of all ages.
For comparison, the Wimbledon first prize money is $2.98 million, and last year’s PGA golf tournament winner Brooks Koepka walked away with $2.86 million. So the lesson here is that these elite athletes are basically wasting time they could have spent playing video games.
Mr and Mrs Djokovic must be SO disappointed in their underachieving son.
The team event has the same winner’s pot (although split, obviously) with the European duo of Nyhrox and Aqua, aka Emil Bergquist and David W, whose very names prove that games players are the new superstar DJs and music is also over.
So remember kids: stop wasting time learning things and get better at lasering from the slip. Screentime is the only way to secure your future.
