Luminosity Gaming are adding another jewel to their star-studded Fortnite team by signing Harley ‘Mrfreshasian’ Campbell to the lineup.
The 18-year-old Australian phenomenon has been making big waves throughout the Fortnite scene in both its competitive and content creation landscapes.
Mrfreshasian has nearly two million followers on Twitch, about 1.4 million on Instagram, and a whopping 2.9 million subscribers on his YouTube channel.
Though he’s sitting in a great spot now, it wasn’t always like that for the exciting young gun. In the announcement video, Mrfreshasian outlined the inspiring path he took before landing at LG.
“Today is a very special day,” the new LG signee said. “It’s crazy to think that just under two years ago I was living in government housing, barely eating twice a day, and going to local LANs with a horrible laptop just to slowly win the gear I needed to play better.”
Now, his single laptop has turned into a four-screen setup that is much better suited to keeping up with Mrfreshasian’s developing talents, as seen in LG’s spotlight.
Mrfreshasian joins the rise of talented Australian personalities making their mark in both content creation and the wider esports industry.
As a YouTuber and Twitch streamer, the player routinely hits seemingly impossible shots. At such a young age, Mrfreshasian already boasts a dense highlight reel.
He’s managed to grow a community that knows him for his quirky antics, evidenced by his self-imposed “blue weapons only” challenge to commemorate his signing to LG.
Competitively, Mrfreshasian has been on the rise, earning top honors in back-to-back Australian Ppen Pro-Ams and winning in 2020 alongside teammates 'Lachlan' Ross Power and 'Enschway.'
Though he’ll look to make the most of his time in LG, this isn’t the first time that the young Fortnite star has been associated with a professional team.
He previously represented the Renegades during his time at the inaugural Fortnite World Cup 2019 Oceanic Qualifiers, though he didn’t progress.
Now, alongside LG, the sky's the limit for Mrfreshasian's potential as the youngster grows to become more prominent in the wider Fortnite scene.
