Fortnite Esports Roster Changes and Player Signings - April 24th, 2019
Welcome to our weekly series that covers the latest roster changes and player signings in Fortnite Esports. Gaming organizations are adjusting rosters and picking up new players every week, so we decided to start this series to keep track of all the changes. There is no shortage of top-tier talent in this community and we love to see players' hard work pay off.
The following roster changes are those that have occurred in the past three weeks, and do not include previously established rosters.
Liquid has signed three new players to their esteemed roster, just in time for the World Cup. You may recognize Cented from his consistently high placements on NA-West with partner CLG Psalm. Riversan proved himself immediately after being signed, qualifying for the Solo World Cup the very next day. Fiber has been placing well in the qualifiers too, and we can't wait to see what he brings to the table going forward!
FaZe Clan welcomes their newest member to the team: Jarvis. He is well-known as FaZe Kay's younger brother, but that doesn't mean he doesn't have talent. A quick look at his intro video and you can tell that Jarvis slays on the sticks.
LG seems to have gone on a signing spree, picking up a total nine new players in anticipation of the World Cup. With this latest round of pickups, Luminosity quadrupled the size of their Fortnite roster. We look forward to seeing how this big move pays off for LG.
It seems that Tempo Storm has started to rebuild their roster with two new pickups. Brush and CizLucky join Sicairos and will represent Tempo during the World Cup.
FlyQuest has decided to expand their Fortnite roster in anticipation of the World Cup. The four new playes, Frat, curney, Edgey, and Faultur, are joining Crunch and Hansol on the FlyQuest roster. Convertibles was also signed as their competitive Fortnite Coach.
Evil Geniuses is breaking into the Fortnite scene with the pickup of their first two competitive Fortnite players. JTruth and MoNsTcr will have the sole responsibility of carrying the EG banner throughout the world cup. And judging from their performance in the week 2 duo qualifiers, they have a solid chance of qualifying and representing their new org well.
Eleven Gaming (E11)
E11 gaming has added two new players to their expansive Fortnite roster. Daxor and Grazca, both of whom compete in NA, are joining some talented players on the E11 roster.
The final piece of news for today is Noizeeh rejoining Method. The timeline here is a little confusing, as Noizeeh joined Method mid-February, left a month later in March, and now a month after that he is rejoining the org. Regardless of the details behind-the-scenes, we hope their relationship proves fruitful for both parties.
