Fortnite Esports Roster Changes and Player Signings - March 15th, 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 week and a half, and do not include previously established rosters.
FaZe is making moves in anticipation of the World Cup. They just signed two of the top-performing players so far in the qualifiers. Both have already qualified for the World Cup in solos. What's more impressive, Dubs has placed high enough to qualify for every single week of the solo qualifiers so far, even scoring himself a first place finish in week 5 after he'd already qualified.
Rise Nation has parted ways with XXiF and Ronaldo following and investigation into cheating allegations. Ronaldo was caught feeding kills to XXiF during the World Cup qualifier finals. Epic conducted an investigation, concluded they were cheating, and banned each player involved for two weeks. Rise Nation announced their separation from XXiF and Ronaldo after the investigation was concluded.
Ops has been signed to Misfits Gaming. He has been in the competitive Fortnite scene from early on, and we're glad to see his grind pay off! Next step: qualify for the World Cup.
Pro Player Nayte has parted ways with Team LDLC after three months with the org and is seeking new representation. He already qualified for the World Cup in solos. Now, it's just a matter of which org he'll be repping in New York at the World Cup finals.
The European organization, Star Esports, has picked up three Fortnite players this week. They welcome Troqz, Polterr, and Peak to their roster.
