In the world of Fortnite, Cooper and Mero have become the stars of the 2023 Fortnite Global Championship. Their story is quite unique – they became a team by flipping a coin.
The Fortnite Global Championship 2023 was a massive in-person tournament that took place in Copenhagen, Denmark. It had a whopping $4 million in prizes and attracted the best Fortnite players from all over the world. The competition lasted for three days, and included the top 75 duos that qualified through the 2023 FNCS events. The tournament had two brackets - an upper and lower bracket, with the finals taking place on the final day.
Cooper and Mero, who qualified at one of the FNCS Majors earlier this year, won the championship and took home the $1 million prize. Both players left the decision to play together to the whims of a coin flip. Yes, you heard that right - a simple coin flip. This 50/50 chance, coupled with their dedication, is the primary factor behind their remarkable success.
For Cooper, it was his first-ever LAN event, and he performed exceptionally well. "I don't even know what to do with this money; I'm literally only 16," he said.
The 2023 Fortnite Global Championship will be remembered as one of the greatest esports tournaments, and Cooper and Mero's journey from a simple coin flip to becoming champions will inspire gamers everywhere.
