Epic Games announced on January 24 that they were partnering with ESL for the very first time to stage a tournament in Katowice, Poland with a hugely lucrative prize pool for both solo and duo games. 

While highly successful pros like FaZe Clan's Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Dennis 'Cloak' Lapore opted against traveling to Poland, plenty of others did - and scooped up plenty of the huge prize pool that was on offer.

Tfue is one of the most popular Fortnite players in the world - and one of the highest earning.

By not attending, Tfue put his spot at the top of the highest-earning chart at risk - leaving the door open for Ghost Gaming's Timothy 'Bizzle' Miller to replace him. Despite not tasting overall success in Katowice, Bizzle has now taken the top spot - and will look to cement it going forward.

The duos portion of the event, which had a top prize of $80,000, was won by Ghost's Rocco 'Saf' Morales and NRG's Williams 'Zayt' Aubin. 

It's another success for the Fortnite esports scene after Epic Games revealed they would offer $100 million in prizes for the 2018-19 competitive season alone. $8 million was handed out at the Summer Skirmish, which was quickly followed by the Fall Skirmish - bumping the prize pool up to $10 million.

It is an insane amount, given how new Fortnite is in an esports capacity. 

Since then, players have taken part in events all around the globe, with the most recent being the highly secretive 'Secret Skirmish' - won by Ghost Gaming's Bizzle. Yet, there could be a major shake-up in the rankings when the developer puts a further $30 million on the line for the Fortnite World Cup event.

These events have directly resulted in some of the best players becoming top earning esports stars in under 12 months, headlined by professionals players for Team Liquid, FaZe Clan, Ghost Gaming and more.

Now, thanks to esportsEarnings, fans can see just which of their favorite players has pocketed the most cash from their performances at tournaments.
