Fortnite Pro Vivid Explains Why He Chose Team Liquid Over TSM

As one of the top talents in competitive Fortnite, Noah “Vivid” Wright had no shortage of options when it came to joining a team, and has explained why he chose Liquid over Team SoloMid (TSM).

After successive high placings in the weekly Summer Skirmish events, Vivid was quickly spotted as one of the best players around, and it was only a matter of time until he joined an organization.

But with a never ending list of top esports teams recruiting for Fortnite teams, where he would end up was unclear. On August 29, he was announced as part of the Team Liquid lineup.


He joins the likes of Thomas “72hrs” Mulligan, Jake “Poach” Brumleve, Ryan “Chap” Chaplo and Adam “Strafesh0t” Crawford.

His decision came as a surprise to some though, as it had been rumored that he had been offered a spot with TSM. Vivid explained his reasoning on stream however, because he knows he will be asked a lot.

“To be honest it was just natural chemistry, that was the biggest part. There was a couple of other things that I talked with [TSM’s] Myth about, so he knows kind of like a small thing that happened, but, for the most part it was just natural chemistry with Chap, Poach and Tom.

If you guys watched my interview with MonsterDFace, I emphasised team chemistry and me being comfortable, a lot. And yeh, they’re just all really cool guys.”

Vivid will be playing alongside Poach, 72hrs and Chap as part of the Team Liquid roster for the foreseeable future, taking part in solo and duo events under the org’s banner.

TSM also have a strong lineup of both competitive players and streamers, including Myth, Daequan, Hamlinz, CaMiLLz, AimbotCalvin, HighDistortion and more.

Ali-A uncovers teasers for future Fortnite skins: Matrix, Witcher, Ant-Man & more

YouTuber and longtime Fortnite superfan Alastair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken has discovered big clues for more crossover skins that could be coming soon to the game.

Season 5 of Fortnite kicked off with a bang as The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda arrived on The Island. Since then, we’ve seen God of War’s Kratos, Halo’s Master Chief, The Walking Dead’s Daryl and Michonne, and even Predator get their own skins.

So who’s coming next? Well, Ali-A has some ideas based on a hint list that was sent to him by Fortnite creators Epic Games themselves, and it seems as though more epic movie crossovers are on their way.

Could Neo or Trinity from The Matrix be coming to Fortnite?

What new skins are coming in Fortnite Season 5?

In a new video celebrating the arrival of Terminator, Ali-A also revisited a list of items that he’d been sent by Epic Games, with each item acting as a teaser for a ‘hunter’ that would be coming to the game at some point during Season 5.

It appears that many hints on the list have already been discovered: The cup is The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda; the sunglasses are Terminator; the face paint is Kratos; the mud mask is Predator; and the syrup is Mancake, for example.

As for the remaining items on the list, there are some very interesting theories about who they could relate to, and which iconic characters could be coming to The Island next.

Ali-A explains that the Ant-Farm item is most likely a hint at Ant-Man finally joining the game, as he was given his own point of interest during Season 4’s Marvel extravaganza but was never added as a character.

The red and blue jellybeans could be a hint towards characters from The Matrix. This will likely be either Neo or Trinity, as they’re both set to return in the upcoming sequel Matrix 4 that’s due out later in 2021.

Tokens also appear as an item on the list, and Ali-A believes this is a hint towards The Witcher protagonist Geralt, especially as the Netflix adaptation of the game features a song called Toss A Coin To Your Witcher.

A crossover with The Witcher could be coming to Fortnite.

A baseball bat could be a hint towards Scout from Team Fortress 2, or it could have pointed to The Walking Dead crossover that already happened. Similarly, space bananas could be a hint towards Samus Aran from Metroid, or it could have just been about Master Chief.

Elsewhere, the golden back scratcher is likely going to represent the long-rumored Female Midas skin, as it links up with the ‘Midas Touch’ myth. As for the hand wraps, even Ali-A is unsure what they could hint towards, but it could be a boxer of some sort.

We’ll have to wait and see whether any of these crossover skin predictions come true before Season 5 of Fortnite comes to an end on March 15, 2021.
