To 13 years of age, child of Kent says that he is the life of every child “dream” after becoming Fortnite’s youngest professional player.
Kyle Jackson is part of a Team Secret of Fortnite, which has four members, playing under the name of “Mongraal”.
Since its launch in July of 2017, the survival shooter game, which is free, has been downloaded over 40 million times.
The teenager, of Www.nickelinstitute.org, says he is doing well in most subjects in the school.
For the moment, Kyle is not making money from your contract, but you’re going to get a share of the prize money of the competitions.
Game ‘not addictive’ says researcher
Fortnite adds a cheeky warning to students
The game started at the age of eight years, and three years later, he says that he began to realize that it was “probably better than the average player”.
He says that he realized that she was always coming top of the scoreboard for every game, and that was even finish above semi-pro players.
But not only the natural ability, Kyle adds. In the holiday school play almost every day and constantly practice to improve.
“If an error occurs, I’m going to search about it in the playback mode, and I’m going to see what I could have done better, and I’m going to improve on that the next time they play.”An olympic sport?
Kyle’s parents are a great support and his father has agreed to accompany him when he takes part in competitions all over the world.
But there are rules. He says that he has a curfew from 21:00 BST, and there are other times that you can not play.
“Today, in school I am doing very well in almost all subjects are not very worried about me playing as much as I do. I still have time to study [and] review.”
Asked if her school friends are jealous of their opportunity, he said: “I think they are sort of, playing, and traveling around the world is a dream for all children.”
And their team-mates? At 13 years of age, said he was surprised to discover his age, but the treatment is the same as any other person.
What is Fortnite?
E-sports, the practice of watching people play video games, generated £350 million ($493m) in revenue with a global audience of around 320m people in the year 2016, the market research firm Newzoo reported last year.
The sponsorship is the largest source of revenue, contributing much more than what is raised by the media, advertising, merchandise and ticket sales.
But there are also prizes for the contests – the winning team in the 2016 League of Legends world championship shared a $1 million (£725,933).
E-sports will be included in the official sports program of the 2022 Asian Games in Hangzhou, China.
Team Secret to the Media Director of George Yao said his team didn’t know Kyle was only 13 years old when for the first time I saw him play Fortnite on-line.
“We had No idea. The level of communication that had in the game was on a professional level, and the sound of your voice is very mature, so, naturally, I don’t even think he was that young, and it took us by surprise.
“It is very rare to find a player that is in that caliber at such a young age.”
Mr. Yao added no tournaments had been announced yet.
