Being a professional gamer is becoming a viable option as time progresses with huge tournaments being held for various games with high prize-pools. Not to mention the fans and viewers who support their favourite team and player. This trend continues as ESPN Magazine’s cover will feature a Pro Gamer. That Pro Gamer is none other than the famous Fortnite Live Streamer and player, Ninja.
Ninja is an extremely popular live streamer who is also very good at Fortnite. He broke the internet a few months back when he live-streamed Fortnite with Drake and broke the record for most viewers for an individual streamer. He has been on the rise ever since and has also helped popularize Fortnite and keep it in the Battle Royale limelight. While people would argue that most of his fans are children, there’s a lot of teenagers and adult who tune into his content to watch him play. This is a big first, both for Ninja and for eSports in general as this will help show people that eSports are here to stay and that it is not just a hobby.
It has been a great year for Ninja and it’s going to be interesting to see how he continues his content and growth after reaching such highs and if he will be able to maintain this level of success.
