A Midwestern university wants to recruit the best Fortnite players in the country for their electronic sports team, and is wasting the dough to bring quality talent.
Ashland University in Ohio will adopt the feverishly popular royale battle title in its competitive e-sports program, which will be officially launched this fall. Fortnite will join the team's current competitive title teams, League of Legends, Overwatch, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Rocket League. Interested players can access this form to enroll in the program.
"Fortnite attracts both the audience of casual and casual players," said the school's technical director, Josh Buchanan, in a statement. "We are excited to offer this platform for players who want to show their skills in a more competitive space, Fortnite provides an environment that allows players to be creative, innovative and show their mastery of their abilities."
Admission into the undergraduate program of the boarding school with accommodation and food on the Ashland campus costs $ 31,284, so the $ 4,000 scholarship offers a good incentive, but this is probably best for people who have other reasons for go to Ashland University in Ohio, too.
The embrace that the title has already received from the community of players is quite remarkable. It is one of the most broadcast titles on gaming sites and there are millions of people playing at the same time.
