The Katowice Royale 2019 just got over last week and half a million USD was distributed between the top positions.

Timothy Miller A.k.a Ghost Bizzle has officially overtaken Tfue to reach the top spot in total tournament earnings.

Arguably the best Fortnite player in the planet, Tfue is now second on the list as he missed out on this years’ Katowice Royale.
