That being said, their biggest payday came from Fortnite World Cup, where they had six players involved, two of which came in clutch and won big. Their Fortnite tandem Wolfiez and Rojo finished Fortnite World Cup – Duos at an impressive second place which earned them $2,250,000, while Jordan “Crimz” Herzog and Zach “Spades” Gifford claimed a 17th place and $100,000 in prize money.

The London Spitfires may have been the surprise winners of the inaugural Overwatch Season, but defending their title turned out to be tougher than what they’ve imagined after the first week of games (from Feb. 14 to Feb. 17) saw them lose both of the two matches that they played over the four days of action in Los Angeles. The odds seemed set against Spitfires in the opening match, a re-match of last year’s Grand Final against Philadelphia Fusion. Fusion managed to gain revenge for their loss in last year’s finals, winning the opening game 3-1 on their way to a 2-0 start after they also beat Atlanta Reign later in the week.
