The recent livestream that was conducted by Spanish YouTuber 'elrubiusOMG' recently broke the 1m concurrent viewers mark, this was more than the recently popular Drake and Ninja stream not to long ago. Wyatt address the recent Battle Royale tournament stream in his tweet, saying it has over "42M live views, and set a record for biggest single live gaming stream @ 1.1M concurrent."

This was not the only record that was broken, according to Wyatt "Fortnite holds the record for the most videos related to a video game uploaded in a single month EVER." This is massive achievement considering games with such of a craze as Minecraft, and the uploads that spawned from that, or even the COD: Modern Warfare 2 trickshot video days. Fortnite has beaten them all on a monthly comparison.


Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
