Forty million players attempted to qualify over 10 weeks of online competition but only 100 finalists have a shot at winning the $3m (£2.4m) prize at Flushing Meadows, New York

All finalists will take home at least $50,000 and the runner-up, as well as third and fourth-placed finishers, will all become millionaires.

  1. (Quick disclaimer: please don’t take this in a bad way, I’m not trying to be rude)

    So, “we need more girl gamers” .

    Gosh, thank you kid! Look, most girls might not be in the finals…most girls might not play games, but it is said that 48% of ALL video game players are female. Sure girls don’t play as well sometimes, and most of them can’t get in the finals…but that doesn’t mean they have to be known for “thinking about love only”. Not all girls play video games and not all males play video games. We have to appreciate each other for who we are and not what gender we are, please raise awareness for sexism.

    Thank you,

    A Female Gamer

  2. Any opportunity to shove in faux egalitarianism down our throats, eh? If you want to see more female players in big tournaments like this, then they have to work for it. There's literally nothing stopping them. You people who believe in equality of outcome and not equality of opportunity really get on my nerves.

  3. Biggest worry is now many kids think this is a actual Job and want to play it more, Nintendo already said this years ago never make Game serious because that's when kids don't want to do nothing but play Games all day long and not study

  4. no female cuz they can not compite with men . so now we have to make world cup for women so they will feel some equality . and no one will watch it like men world cup it is ez like that .
