OpTic Gaming’s Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop spoke to Dexerto after his second place finish in the $3,000,000 Fortnite Pro-Am tournament at E3.
Since leaving his career as a Call of Duty commentator for MLG and the CWL in favor of a new path as a content creator, CouRage has gone from strength to strength.
The popular streamer is now a member of OpTic, has thousands of subscribers on Twitch, and gets to do what he loves on a daily basis from the comfort of his own home.
CouRage’s game of choice has been Fortnite Battle Royale for a number of months now, and on June 12th he got the chance to prove that he can play with the best of the best at the Fortnite Pro-Am competition.
The OpTic man did more than just compete, though, as he managed to secure an impressive second place finish alongside teammate Kenneth Faried, only losing out to Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Marshmello.
Speaking to Dexerto after the event came to an end, CouRage discussed how intense the end of the final game had been, explained that he can’t be too disappointed about losing to Ninja, and said how pleased he is to have so much money to give to charity.
CouRage and Kenneth won $500,000 for finishing in second and CouRage explained that his money will be going to the Aneurysm and AVM Foundation, a charity that is close to his heart after he lost a close friend to a brain aneurysm a few years ago.
CouRage concluded the interview by making it clear that he will be back for the next Fortnite Pro-Am and that next time he’ll be “beating Ninja”.
