Fortnite Esports Roster Changes and Player Signings - June 12th, 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 two weeks, and do not include previously established rosters.
About two weeks ago, FaZe finished their whirlwind of a week with some of the biggest news yet. Just days after Nickmercs announced he was leaving 100T, he revealed he had joined FaZe. This news came as a surprise to many, but we can't wait to see what these two industry powerhouses can create together.
The South Korean-based organization, T1, has announced their latest pickup in NA Fortnite. "PersecuteTV" becomes the third player on their competitive Fortnite roster, joining Sofa and Fulmer.
LG has announced "Destroy" is joining their expansive Fortnite roster. He hasn't qualified for the World Cup yet, despite his grind, but joining a respected org like Luminosity shows that he's an incredibly talented player.
Japanese player "RiLey" has exploded in popularity as of late, partly due to his mesmerizing clips of insane building tricks. About a week ago, he announced he had joined Team Parallel. We think this is a great fit and would love to see some collaborations with other pioneers of the building meta, like Parallel CNNR.
Cooler Esports announced "aqua" has joined their EU Fortnite roster. He has already qualified for the World Cup in Solos and Duos, so we look forward to seeing how he shows up in New York.
Raised By Kings
Swedish player "LeftEyeBR" announced he has joined Raised By Kings. We can't wait to see how he reps his new org in New York for the World Cup.
