Fortnite, the famous Battle Royale from Epic Games, first entered the competitive landscape in 2018. Since then, the title has been emerging as one of the biggest names in eSports, distributing millions of dollars in prizes. The finals of the Fortnite World Cup 2019 are coming up and will take place between the 26th and 28th of July in New York, USA. So, this gives us an excellent opportunity to have a look at some of the top players of the game who occupy the top ranks and are likely to win some of the top prizes.
Turner “Tfue” Tenney
American Turner “Tfue” Tenney is one of the most popular Fortnite players in the world. His career goes far beyond the controversy surrounding the FaZe Clan, in which the player sued the organization for having a very oppressive contract. Tfue is quite successful in the competitive landscape, having won the Fortnite Fall Skirmish Series alongside Dennis “Cloak” Lepore. The player has already won around $524,000 in prizes and is likely to perform well at the Fortnite World Cup.
Timothy “Bizzle” Miller

Dennis “Cloak” Lapore
Tfue’s duo partner in the game, Dennis “Cloak” Lapore also had his problems with the FaZe Clan and chose to part ways with the organization. However, even as a free agent, Cloak still participates in competitions. In addition to the numerous duo category titles with his teammate that he has secured, Cloak also shows good solo results. He achieved second place in the second week of the Fortnite Summer Skirmish Series in North America. Overall, Cloak has won $422,000 in prizes. Unfortunately, he failed to qualify for the Fortnite World Cup finals, so we won’t be seeing him there.
Jake “POACH” Brumleve
Like Cloak, Jake “POACH” Brumleve did not qualify for the Fortnite World Cup finals. He is nonetheless sponsored by Team Liquid and was once considered the best in Battle Royale. The player has revealed his desire to retire from the competitive scene and focus only on his broadcasts. He has earned approximately $323,000 in prizes.
Nate “NateHill” Hill
FaZe Clan player Nate Hill has also seen decent success in Fortnite. In addition to winning his Fortnite World Cup spot in the doubles category, alongside Trevor “FunkBomb” Siegler, Nate is known for his consistency, having finished in top positions in most of the Majors in which he participated. His Fortnite earnings are approximately $355,000 to date.
Notably, this list does not include Richard Tyler “Ninja” Blevins. He might be the most popular player in the world, even relative to the mentioned members of this list. He has not had as much success as a pro player, earning just $190,208 in prize winnings.
