Ludwig Monday's Fortnite event gets $100k prize pool

Ludwig Aghren has secured the bag for his Ludwig Monday's Fortnite event, announcing a partnership with Epic Games that will see the competition boast a $100k prize pool.

The deal was revealed via social media on 11th April, with the former Twitch sensation explaining that his next event would focus on up and coming competitors and or content creators. 

The first Ludwig Monday's Fortnite event occurred in March, featuring prominent content creators like Imane "Pokimane" Anys, Félix "xQc" Lengyel, Joseph "Mang0" Marquez, and more. 

A second edition took place on 4th April similarly featuring plenty of popular faces in the world of streaming and content creation. Now that there's something other than finding out who throws for content the hardest at stake, Ludwig has made sure the prize money ends up with someone that actually wants to grind for it.
