Fortnite's IEM Katowice Royale 2019 kicks off on March 1-3 and finally ESL has confirmed the full lineup of duos that are set to take part in the $500,000 tournament.
Fortnite’s esport hype train was at full speed when prominent organizers ESL and Epic Games partnered to bring Fortnite to Katowice, and the anticipation is sure to increase as the organizers have released the roster of competitors thus far.
Big names such as Team Liquid’s Thomas ‘72hrs’ Mulligan, Ryan ‘Chap’ Chaplo and Team Vitality’s Klaivert ‘Teeqzy’ Dervishi with duo Johann ‘Mushway’ Cyr are set to join the fray.
Those players comprise only three of the 35 duos set for Poland, totalling 70 players at the time of writing.
A welcomed sight to see lies in the diversity of competition, as the 70 players come from more than 15 different nationalities.
This is in stark contrast to the Secret Skirmish who had a striking amount of players come from North America, prompting massive criticism toward the event.
