Fortnite Tutors Are Being Hired By Parents For Their Kids

Epic Games is financing millions into these tournaments, so getting a Fortnite tutor might not be too bad of an investment.

As the scourge of Fortnite filth continues to sweep the country, it has emerged that some parents in America are paying for their children to be tutored to avoid being embarrassed by their friends. For some parents, it even means secret online coaching, like what one suburban dad paid for - while his kids "grew suspicious" as he suddenly became better at "Fortnite". Using a freelance labor website, Ally Hicks, who lives in Winchester in the United Kingdom, found a tutor for her 10-year-old son.

The Wall Street Journal wrote an article detailing various parents and their children involved in this phenomenon, interviewing them about their experiences.

Winning a game of Fortnite comes with its list of advantages: bragging rights, which were previously reserved for the likes of sports personalities, season passes, battle passes, skins, weapons, V-Bucks, and much more. So she hired a coach, who, for $50, taught her son how to play the game well. Another dad, Adrian Luff, is putting all three of his Fortnite-playing kids through lessons, with tongue-in-cheek dreams that at least one them will get good enough to "fund my retirement". Everyone that isn't you, basically - all playing Fortnite, their brothers and sisters playing Fortnite, their mates, and most likely - if they have them - their kids.

On the opposite side, if your child becomes a stud who racks up 10 kill games constantly and can win lots of games, then they'll become more popular in the group.

"There's pressure not to just play it but to be really good at it". "You can imagine what that was like for him at school".

Find coach Fortnite: Battle Royale can be found on specialized sites like Game Sensei.

"I want them to excel at what they enjoy", Euan Robertson told The Wall Street Journal.
