Fortnite has been one of those games that no one saw coming. At first, it seemed to be a more cartoony version of Player Unknown's Battlegrounds. Yet, it quickly grew into something beyond a passion, beyond an addiction, for millions of players around the world. In just a little over a year, Fortnite has grown into a multi-billion dollar game franchise that has put Epic Games at the forefront of game developers almost on a rival with Blizzard in name recognition. Along with this insane take over of the console (and PC) gaming industry, Fortnite has also been slamming gamers with absolutely killer competitions. These competitions range anywhere from small, open tournaments online for anyone anywhere in the world to enter to multi-million dollar prize pool competitions that attract the best gamers from all over the globe.
As the game began to blow up, multiple professional gaming organizations started to form teams for the large scale tournaments, some of the pro teams include organizations like Team Liquid, NRG Esports, Fnatic, and OpTic Gaming. Of course, FaZe Clan knew that Fortnite was going to be huge. So, we put together our own team. You might have heard a little something about them online or on YouTube or Twitch. Our team includes some of the best players in the world, according to different player rankings, prize pool winnings, and tournament statistics. Our pro Fortnite team includes Tfue, Nate Hill, SpaceLyon, Cloak, Jaomock, Yelo, and Tennp0.
Our ability to have the top players just killing it in tournaments across the globe has been the reason why we have dominated so many competitions. As of the writing of this article, in mid-October 2018, our team has competed in 26 Fortnite Tournaments and brought in $646,350.00. In fact, at Summer Skirmish, our own Nate Hill finished 4th and won $120K. So, in just a little over 7 months, the FaZe Clan professional Fortnite team has earned over a half a million dollars in competitions.
When you compare this to our other insanely talented pro teams who have been just sweeping through competitions, it is easy to see that our Fortnite team will end up being one of the top earning games in FaZe Clan. Currently, out of 7 different games that FaZe Clan has professional teams competing in, Fortnite is already coming in at #3 in terms of earnings. To us, that proves that Fortnite is a powerhouse of a game that shows no signs of stopping, and that our pro team is one of the best in the world. It also proves to the world, especially other Esports teams out there, that our pro team is not one to be taken lightly.
The FaZe Clan pro team has come just screaming into the Fortnite competitions and has brought their gaming to the next level, forcing others to do the same. The way that our team members have just completely taken over each competition both in terms of prize money, media coverage, and name recognition, is epic. Anywhere our team goes, they are recognized by fans and gamers. They are looked up to and idolized by younger gamers all over the world. For us, knowing that we are motivating the next generation of gamers is a wonderful thing and we can't wait to have some of them on future FaZe Clan pro teams.
