The Fortnite World Cup is coming back!
After a hugely successful debut year in 2019 – which sold out the Arthur Ashes Stadium in New York – Epic Games are thought to be organising another World Cup for the hit battle royale title.
A date is yet to be officially confirmed for the event, but we have already speculated about a number of things – including potential host venues – ahead of this year’s event.
But now here’s a more in-depth look at one man who is sure to be a fan favourite at the event – Twitch and YouTube sensation, Tfue.NOW WATCH BELOW: Keep up to date with all the latest Fortnite news!
Who is Tfue?
Tfue – otherwise known as Turner Tenney – is a 22-year-old American gamer, who regularly streams on Twitch and uploads to YouTube.
History in competitive gaming
Tfue is no stranger to competitive gaming – particularly when it comes to Fortnite – having taken part in 36 tournaments since the game began.
His track record in these tournaments isn’t too bad either. He has placed in the top five in 50% of his tournaments – winning a total of 10.
Fortnite World Cup 2019
Tfue took part in the inaugural Fortnite World Cup last year – however despite performing well in the qualifying rounds, the final itself didn’t go to plan.
Despite entering the star-studded event as one of the favourites, Tfue struggled early on and failed to make any real impact, finishing in a lowly 67th spot.
He took home $50,000 from the event, with his current career earnings from competitive events standing at a whopping $581,900.
Will we see Tfue at the 2020 World Cup?
In a word, yes. After his poor showing last year, Tfue will be looking to make amends and prove to the world that he is the biggest and best, Fortnite player out there.
