Fortnite World Cup 2019 Champion Revealed for Duos and Solo
This past weekend, Epic Games hosted the first ever Fortnite World Cup event. Though the battle royale has been out for two years now, the game is just now getting its first major tournament that is officially hosted by the developer behind the game. It is a massive event that had a lot going on this past weekend.
Fortnite World Cup 2019 Results
There were a total of not one, not two, but four different professional Fortnite World Cup 2019 competitions that were held this year. The four events were divided up into the main categories that a player could participate in. The whole event was held in New York City.
The four main categories that were competed in were Creative, the pro player tournament, duos, and solos. Starting with Creative, this is the mode that players use to create their own unique modes and maps for other players in the community to enjoy online.
Interestingly enough, though, Epic Games decided to hold a tournament for those players who are the best of the best in the community for making awesome levels and islands in Creative. For this particular tournament, the top eight players were revealed, each getting a nice sum of money.
Starting with eighth place, we have Cuddle Crew who received $195,000 for participating in the event. In seventh place is Sunshine Soldiers who got a little more prize money at $235,000 for them. Sixth place was Llama Record Co. who received a nice crisp $250,000 for placing in the tournament.
The fifth place competitor was Chicken Champions who received $270,000 for doing well in the tournament. From there, the prizes continue to only get as the fourth place competitor Lil Whip Warriors received $295,000. Third place was Raven’s Revenge who received $315,000 for doing well.
Last but not least, we have second and first place for the Fortnite World Cup 2019 Creative tournament. Second place went to Funky Fighters who earned themselves $345,000 in prize money. The first place winners of Creative were Fish Fam who got an unbelievable estimated $1.345 million for winning.
Fortnite World Cup 2019 Results: Duos Pro-Am
The second tournament that was hosted this past weekend in the Fortnite World Cup 2019 was the Pro-Am event. This particular event also offered a million dollars to the winners of the event as it was a Duos tournament featuring only professional players.
The tournament featured the popular (and sometimes controversial) personalities like Tfue. Many duos participated in the event, with a lot of prize money on the line for all of those who were in it. The winners who came on top, though, was the duo of Airwaks and RL Grime who won a nice sum of $1 million for become the first champions.
Though the Pro-Am was exciting and entertaining, it was far from being the main event at the Fortnite World Cup 2019. After weeks and months of qualifying rounds each and every weekend, the best of the best when it comes to duos and solo modes came together to find out who the champions are.
Fortnite World Cup 2019 Results: Duos
Beginning with the duos tournament, there were a hundred of the best players divided into teams of two who competed to find out who the champions are in the whole world of battle royale. The duo who won the event got a much bigger prize pool of cash than the previous two tournaments.
Those two winners were Nyhrox and aqua who, together, won the whole tournament. For achieving this massive accomplishment, the duo got a massive reward of $3 million to split between the two. It was a fairly narrow victory for the duo since they only won with four more points than the second place team.
The duos tournament was certainly much more interesting in terms of who came out on top than the main event solo event. That’s because, though, it was fun to watch, the winner of the competition was decided long before the conclusion of the entire tournament.
Fortnite World Cup 2019 Results: Solo
This event showcased the best solo players from around the world who are able to win and do well by themselves. Coming in as the first ever Fortnite World Cup solo champion is none other than American 16 year old competitor Bugha. Bugha came in first with an epic 59 points to win it all.
It’s when you look at the second place and below that you realize just how overwhelming his win was, though. Second place was psalm who came in with a respectable 33 points to earn $1.8 million as a reward. The gap between first and second is massive, though, with a 16 point deficit.
For a portion of the competition, it was already clear that Bugha would win the whole thing with his massive lead. For becoming the world champion, he received $3 million to claim all for himself. That wasn’t the only exciting news to come out of the event, though.
XXiF Was Unpopular At the Event
If you’ve followed the battle royale streamer news lately, you will know that XXiF has been the subject of intense controversy for months now. During the qualifying rounds, he was found guilty of cheating by Epic Games and subsequently banned for 14 days before being allowed to compete again.

Fans and other players were not satisfied with this result, especially since XXiF qualified for the World Cup soon after coming back from his break. The tournament reportedly featured fans showing their disdain for XXiF participating in the event as he was booed at times.
In fact, the crowd would cheer whenever he was killed and, supposedly, the crowd went absolutely wild when he was eliminated from the tournament entirely.
The Fortnite World Cup 2019 was a massive event, even holding recreational activities for fans who were in attendance. Epic Games has yet to announce any plans for a potential tournament event next year but you can check back here for any announcement(s) as soon as it happens.
