UMBC compared its victory over Virginia to winning in Fortnite Battle Royale

At the rate this week has been going, the sports world's going to have to start preparing special "Victory Royale" trophies.

Soccer players were also spotted doing a Fortnite inspired celebration on the pitch after scoring a goal, and there has also been numerous celebrities including Joe Jonas and Chance the Rapper also reportedly fans of the game.

For those who don't follow college basketball, the No. 16 seed University of Maryland-Baltimore County recently managed to achieve what is arguably the greatest and most significant upset in the history of the NCAA Tournament, by beating their No. 1 seed opponents of the University of Virginia by an incredibly wide margin of 20 points. You can play in solo mode, duos or be in a squad and play but winning a solo battle is the most hard and rewarding experience.Think of it as The Hunger Games with random people and no Jennifer Lawrence.

The recent mainstream exposure, mostly generated by Drake and Travis Scott's appearance with Ninja, has taken Fortnite to new heights of popularity.

Gang, this is where we are with Fortnite.

"It's like your first Fortnite victory, honestly", Retrievers forward Nolan Gerrity told ABC 11 WTVD-TV's Mark Armstrong.

After Gerrity's comparison of the win against UVA feeling like a Victory Royale in Fortnite, the UMBC player dials it back a bit by treating the situation with a little more integrity.
