Epic Games has this year donated a total of $100 million to the prizes. They were to be won both during the Fortnite World Cup 2019 tournament and all other events of the year.

The creators also decided to introduce a new, open recruitment system, thanks to which almost everyone could qualify for the competition. To do this, all you had to do was turn on the Arena mode and climb up the ranks.

Of course, not everyone could do it and make their dreams come true. It required a lot of dedication and months of hard training. Players often spent several hours a day on Fortnite from the moment the title appeared on the market.
