14-Year-Old ‘Warzone’ Pro Skips School To Celebrate Winning $75,000 Tournament

As a child, I would skip school for the most trivial things. If I didn’t know what I was doing, or if it became clear that I wanted to stay home and play Wind Waker all day, I would put on my worst sick voice and tell my parents that I wasn’t ready for a day of learning. To be clear to younger readers, I don’t encourage this behavior. It’s great.

My reasons weren’t good enough. I was not as good as the 14-year-old Warzonepro Rivs who won $75,000 in the Last Dance In Verdansk tournament. He decided to celebrate his win by getting out of school. Heck, I would have probably skipped school for the remainder of the year if I had won. That’s certainly not encouraging.

The duo worked together with Alex ‘Destroy” Benabe and smashed through the tournament to reach the final. Rivs was left with $14,000 after they took home $28,000 of the entire tournament’s prize pool. Although it might not seem like much compared to other esports cash prize pools, $14,000 for a 14 year old child is quite a significant amount. Christ, it’s still a good amount for me at 27.

Rivs told Dexerto that he had decided to take the day off school to celebrate. Rivs’ parents were not bothered, likely because they were “super stunned” and confused at how their son had just brought home $14,000 to play a videogame.

Rivs said that he hadn’t made any decisions about what he would do with the money but that he will be using some to treat his mother on Mother’s Day. It’s great to see it.
