Fortnite battle royale has produced a plethora of young talent who, in their own right, eventually get the Champion status in the gaming world. The level of competitiveness in Fortnite is one of the primary reasons why it is so popular. While talking about the all-time bests, one cannot not mention Kyle "Mongraal" Jackson.
There are very few players in the current Fortnite pros circuit that can rival the level of dedication Mongraal has. His strict regime and persistence to become the best have seen him going shoulder to shoulder with the best of the lot.
2020 was not an easy start for Mongraal. Despite being one of the most captivating and quickest players of all time, his performance was not consistent. Chapter 2, in fact, was not something Mongraal would look back at with fondness. However, it is his persistence that helps him persevere, regardless of the obstacles in front of him.
Fortnite: Kyle Mongraal Jackson, a force to be reckoned with at the upcoming FNCS
Around May, he left streaming, only to come back a month later with new keybinds. Just before September, it looked as if Mongraal was ready with his entirely new game play-style. The freshly incorporated keybinds definitely helped, along with the off-stream practice. He kept focusing entirely on getting better and learning from his mistakes.
Mongraal went through a strict routine at the proper time right before the FNCS, and Cash Cups were scheduled. The impact was felt instantly as Mongraal returned with to the Top 10 boards soon.
On September 19th, Mongraal came back with a bang as he secured the first position in the Dreamhack Online Open Heats. With 643 points and Avg Elims at 9.4, he simply outclassed all his opponents easily. Just before this, on September 16th, Mongraal, mitr0, and @taysonFN captured the second spot in the Choppers Champions Cup. This is what laid the foundation for their fantastic performance in the FNCS so far.
On September 22nd, 2020, Mongraal dropped a 1st Prize in the Solo Cash Cup (Paradox's Platform Cup). This helped his morale extensively, as the FNCS were just around the corner. Fans were looking forward to the team-up between Mongraal, mitr0, and taysonFN for quite a while. Thus, his efforts were reaping its rewards early on. Soon after, these three started practising, and it kept getting better from there on in.
