A Champion Was Crowned

19,000 people cheered in a stadium and nearly two million more watched online, as lights flashed all around and music blared. The sound was deafening but the competitors blocked out the noise and focused on killing one another in an effort to become champion and receive millions in prize money.

The kids were focused on eliminating each other until only one remained. Fans roared their approval as one by one the kids were killed in the arena. At last one was crowned champion!

But these aren’t words from any story I’m writing or anyone else for that matter. These are the words that describe the actual Fortnite World Cup. I’m more than a little afraid of the social consequences of such an event and such a phenomenon. I know I’m not the only one.
