Farming simulator fans who were unable to attend this year's FarmCon were able to enjoy a competitive final series played out between eight teams of three players. With a prize pool of around €12,000, it wasn't a huge event as we've grown accustomed to millions up for grabs, but it does show that even more niche-orientated titles like Farming Simulator cannot only attract a dedicated following, but also make some waves in the professional scene too.
Trelleborg took away the victory, beating Landwirtschaft3.0 in the grand final. The squad, formed of Lukas Bauer, Felix Hasenberger, and Simon Hollweck, took maximum circuit points from FarmCon2019, putting Trelleborg in a strong position for future tournaments. Giants Software is taking esports seriously, as can be seen with the official Farming Simulator competitive website, which houses all the teams, tournaments, Farming Simulator League standings, and more.
Billed as the "greatest tournament of all time," the Fortnite World Cup was held this weekend. British Jaden "Wolfiez" Ashman and Dutch teammate Dave "Rojo" Jong came second overall in the duo series, taking home $2.25 million between them. Splitting their earnings down the middle, they earned a respectable $1 million. Not bad for the duo who managed to knock out some big names throughout the tournament.
First place was awarded to Norwegian Emil "Nyhrox" Bergquist Pedersen and Austrian David "Aqua" W, which secured the team $3 million. The solo games are being played out right now and you'll be able to tune in to see who will take home $3 million. Epic Games is going all out with professional Fortnite gaming and this year's world cup is but a taste of what I reckon the company has planned for the future.
Affordable accessories that'll pair perfectly with your PC
Every one of these awesome PC accessories will enhance your everyday experience — and none cost more than $30.
KLIM Aim RGB gaming mouse ($30 at Amazon)
Whether you're a gamer or not, this is an absurdly good mouse for the price. It's ambidextrous, has a responsive sensor, a braided cable, tank-like build quality, and, yes, it has RGB lighting, though you can turn it off if that's not your thing.
AmazonBasics USB speakers ($16 at Amazon)
These neat little speakers may only pack 2.4W of total power, but don't let that fool you. For something so small you get a well-rounded sound and a stylish design. And they only cost $16.
Razer mouse bungee ($20 at Amazon)
Use a wired mouse? You need a mouse bungee to keep your cable tidy and free of snags. You get no drag on the cable, and this one has subtle styling, a rust-resistant spring and a weighted base, all for $20.
