Fortnite: Epic Games lightens the prize pools, will the esports scene become depopulated?
For a couple of years, the competitive scene of Fortnite has been the country of Bengodi: uncontrolled hype, an abundance of gargantuan events and, above all, huge prize pools.

The export ecosystem of battle royale, in short , exploded out of nowhere and developed on sandy, unstable and almost inconsistent ground, in which, however, thousands of pro (or aspiring) players have happily wallowed, encouraged by the mirage of rich cash prizes (and only by this, since the US giant very often did not listen to their many grievances).

Now everything could change, because Epic Games has revealed that it will reduce the very thing that kept the whole competitive circus alive: the prize money. The well-known player benjyfishy, ​​in this regard, shared his main fear on social media. Benjyfishy has in fact predicted that the reduction in prize money for the next competitive Fortnite season will discourage "grinding the game 24/7".

His concern is not for short-term gain. . The boy believes that this move will damage the title over time and will primarily affect lesser-known players who may not be able to have an adequate return for all the time they spend in the game.

Indeed, the 2021's drop in prize money is incredible. According to Chris "crr" Williams of Fnatic, a single victory in the 2020 Cash Cup would equate to five wins in 2021. In other words, as reported by the player: a single Cash Cup victory in 2020 rewarded each winner with $ 4,000. Five wins are needed to reach almost the same figure ($ 3,825) in 2021.
