(Woodland

CA)–
The
largest
cash
prize
ever
offered
in a
single
PC
gaming
event
was
awarded
to
one
of
four
top
Chinese
gamers
who
plays
under
the
alias,
"Rocket
Boy".
Meng
Yang,
a 21
year
old
PC
gamer,
was
the
only
contestant
to
defeat
Fatal1ty
as
part
of
the
ACON
Fatal1ty
Shootout
at
the
Great
Wall
of
China
and
win
RMB$1,000,000
(US$125,000).
This
historic
invitational
exhibition,
presented
by
ABIT
Computer
Corporation,
was
part
of
the
Fatal1ty
Road
Show
titled
"Giving
Back
to
Gaming."


Johnathan
"Fatal1ty"
Wendel
praised
Meng
after
the
match,
"Rocket
Boy
was
on
his
game
today
and
made
all
the
right
moves
– he
will
be an
inspiration
to
gamers
worldwide,
and
for
sure
to
the
growing
gaming
community
in
China.
His
victory
at my
Great
Wall
of
China
exhibition
was
huge,
and
will
be
seen
as a
big
win
for
gaming,
particularly
for
gaming
in
China",
added
Wendel.
"I’m
proud
to be
part
of
bringing
the
largest
prize
ever
awarded
in
gaming
history."
Rocket
Boy
was
ecstatic
about
winning
his
prize,
which
made
him
an
instant
millionaire;
the
size
of
the
award
presently
represents
nearly
100
years
of a
factory
worker’s
average
wage
in
China.
"I
practiced
hard
to
play
in
this
exhibition
because
I
wanted
to
play
my
idol,"
said
Meng
Yang.
"I’ve
studied
him
for 5
years
and
dreamed
of
playing
the
number
one
gamer
in
the
world.
I am
honored
to
participate."
