Fortnite free agent King Richard has signed with a new organization according to his tweet on October 8th.
The former NRG and Team Envy player has been a free agent since July.
July was also his most successful month as a competitive player when he had a string of high placement Duo games in the late weeks of Summer Skirmish playing with Dmo.
He finished first in Summer Skirmish Week Six Day Two and followed that up with two fifth-place finishes on both days of Week Seven.
Since then, he finished 20th in Week One of Fall Skirmish and 16th playing with Ninja in Week Three.
We pro again boys and girls find out more soon. Also sorting out pc stuff then I’m going to try and go live!— 👑KingRichard👑 (@KingRichard) October 9, 2018
As a free agent, King Richard has been playing a lot of games with Ninja; although their last session in the Fall Skirmish didn’t end so well.
Still, King Richard is pretty well regarded in the competitive community and it will be interesting to see what organization has picked him up.
A partnership with King Richard still provides a solid amount of value. He’s a well-known name who has a fairly active stream and often plays with the biggest players in the game.
He has the 15th most watched Fortnite channel according to TwitchMetrics and averages over 5,000 viewers despite a bit of a sporadic streaming schedule.
