Guild Esports Signs Flikk As Their First Fortnite Pro
Guild Esports is really on the rise this year, and this week, they have announced their first Fortnite Pro – Danish Nikolaj “Flikk” Frøslev! As one of the top 20 Fortnite pros in Europe, Flikk has a series of impressive wins behind them, most recently placing 3rd in the FNCS (Fortnite Champion Series) Trio Finals, this month! We’re very excited to see what comes of this.
Flikk Gets Wins
This is honestly a very smart move, as it will no doubt introduce Guild Esports as an org to fans who might not be familiar with them. Flikk has a combined social media following of 237,900 across his social channels, comprising 35,800 followers on Instagram, 60,800 YouTube subscribers, 67,200 followers on Twitch, and 74,100 on Twitter.
Flikk spoke about this recruitment recently:
“Guild is the perfect fit for me, and I’m determined to continue building on Guild’s success, and my own personal achievements. The Guild organisation has been really welcoming and helped me settle in, and I’m eager now to get started and focus on my performance.”
In addition, Flikk has 700 average viewers on his Twitch stream. This makes Flikk a sound pick up for Guild Esports, as they head into the world of Fortnite. Flikk will be representing Guild Esports in Fortnite events going forward, such as the 1M Super Cup, going down this weekend.
While Flikk isn’t going to be the only Fortnite player picked up by Guild Esports, he’s definitely a brilliant first pick. We hope they start racking up championships, as Guild Esports grows, and recruits some fantastic Fortnite players.
Carleton Curtis, Executive Chairman at Guild said:
“We are extremely proud of our latest signing with Flikk, and can’t wait to see what he brings to the table as our inaugural Fornite pro-player. This signing marks another exciting move for Guild as we expand into a new esports discipline with Fornite and its enormous player base of over 350 million registered players.”
As a player who has already accrued over 100K USD in winnings from Fortnite, the sky is the limit. With Guild Esports at his back, there’s no telling where Flikk will wind up in Fortnite over 2020 and 2021. We can only speculate who else Guild Esports will pick up as time goes on. Congrats to Flikk and to Guild Esports! We hope that this is the start of more victory for the org.
