Team Liquid are forming an elite Fortnite esports squad with the acquisition of Noah ‘Vivid’ Wright who many consider to best Fortnite: Battle Royale player in the world right now.
During the seven weeks of the Summer Skirmish events in North America so far, Vidid has already won four events while also racking up a runner-up finish and another two top 10 places.
Team Liquid’s Fortnite squad, who were formed in June, also have an impressive record themselves with two Summer Skirmish wins as well as a handful of top three finishes.
Team Liquid have further enhanced their Fortnite esports roster with the signing of Vivid
Vivid will soon team up with his new teammates Thomas ’72hrs’ Mulligan, Ryan ‘Chap’ Chaplo, Jake ‘Poach’ Brumleve, and Adam ‘Strafesh0t’ Crawford. The star-studded roster made joining Team Liquid an easy decision for him:
‘I used to play League of Legends and back then they were called Team Curse, so I have been following Team Liquid for a very long time. I’ve always known that they are a good org.
‘When it came to choosing my team I really wanted to be comfortable with the standing roster, and I watched Tom, Poach, and Chap a lot and I loved their personalities. When I got into calls with them on Discord it was so natural to have a conversation and when we got in games together the gameplay just flowed really well.’
Vivid already has proven synergy with Poach as the two of them teammed up to win week five of the Summer Skirmish event. And soon they and the rest of TL will have another chance to earn even more silverware as week eight of the Summer Skirmish will feature an offline tournament at PAX West with $1.5million (£1.2m) on the line.
The massive prize pool is part of Epic Games’ promise to push Fortnite’s esports scene and will contribute an astounding $100m (£77m) to Fortnite prize pools over the next year.
No player in the world has currently earned more in Fortnite tournaments than Vivid as his tournament winnings have net him a tidy $187k (£144k). Vivid was in college, having previously studied Computer Science, but has committed to Fortite fulltime with encouragement from his dad:
‘My dad has never really cared about how much video games I’ve played. I mean, he was always worried and been like: “Hey make sure all your school work is done, make sure you go to work and get some money. As soon as I started making some money from Fortnite he was supportive of me pursuing it as a career and trying to make the most of it.’
