Fortnite Low Prize Pool
It’s been a long time since we heard an outrage from the Fortnite Pros and Players but this time it is from a declining prize pool. It was just a couple of years ago that Fortnite had a huge prize pool for their competitive scene. Epic games had a $100 million prize pool for the year 2019. This year 2021 Fortnite’s cash cup first prize is $600 and a Twitter shoutout.
hopefully this prize pool change motivates pros to stream and make a career out of fortnite other than only focusin on comp
