This mom Went From Candy Crush Casual Player to a $250,000 Competition

YES, there are Candy Crush championships!

Good to know, there is indeed a competitive Candy Crush scene. It was Twitter user @RhodenXane, a player in the Super Smash Bros. 4 esports scene, who shared the amusing story of his mother who “accidentally entered an official Candy Crush tournament,” with a total prize pool of $250,000.

The media outlet Kotaku interviewed this 48-year-old woman named Erryn, who explained that she’s “used to playing a lot of video games,” partly because she has attention deficit disorder and “needs to have ten things going on at once.” So, after resigning from her job, she started playing Candy Crush, which seems to have paid off, as she is now one of the top players in the United States.

Started on March 23, the Candy Crush All Stars tournament aims to bring together the best players from around the world, having them compete in qualifiers and then in a final event in London. According to Xane’s latest updates on his Twitter account, his mother is currently holding the top spot in Ohio and seems to be in a good position to secure her ticket to London!

Update as of April 21 : Since the writing of this article, Xane’s mom has been eliminated from the tournament in the semi-finals. ” Keep going Erryn, you will get it next time “
