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.

Mrfreshasian has been making a name for himself in the Fortnite competitive scene.

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.

MIBR, one of the biggest Brazilian esports organizations, is looking to rebuild its CSGO roster for 2021 and beyond, and it seems like they’ve got their sights set on LUCAS1, vsm, and leo_drunky.

MIBR’s CSGO team has gone through a bit of a rollercoaster ride lately. Last month, they dropped two star players, TACO and fer, and coach dead after a major coaching scandal. Then, FALLEN left due to his dissatisfaction with their decision.

All in all, losing the old SK core has forced the organization to rebuild the team from scratch. However, it seems like they’ve already got three replacement players and a coach in mind.

If the rumors are true, MIBR is interested in adding Leonardo ‘leo_drunky’ Oliveira, Lucas ‘LUCAS1’ Teles, and Vinicius ‘vsm’ Moreira to the roster. They’re also keen on Raphael ‘cogu’ Camargo as the coach, according to the report from Brazilian news site Globo Esporte.

LUCAS1 is a perfect candidate for MIBR

LUCAS1 played for MIBR in 2019, where he spent six months in the squad before moving on to Imperial e-Sports. He spent almost a year with Imperial, before suddenly leaving the squad just a few weeks ago.

LUCAS1 joined MIBR on loan back in 2019.

It’s easy to understand why he might be a good choice for MIBR’s rebuild. He’s experienced, reliable, and available. LUCAS1 has been in the scene for six years, and he’s racked up four top-tier titles, three second-place finishes, and three top-four finishes.

It’s fair to say that he’s a solid career, and he’ll be sure to be a reliable acquisition.

VSM is talented but controversial

Vsm is one of the most promising players in the Brazilian scene, but he’s also quite controversial. In 2018, Valve cottoned on to the fact that he received a VAC ban sometime in the past, and they’ve banned him from attending any Valve events ever since.

Vsm has proven himself to be an incredible talent despite the controversy surrounding his ban.

Still, that doesn’t prevent him from competing in other competitions. He’s currently signed with DETONA Gaming, and he’s been doing great. MIBR competes in a lot of them too, and that means his ban shouldn’t be too much of an issue.

After all, if they’re calling him out as an ideal candidate, it seems like they’re not too fussed.

Leo_drunky could pave the way for MIBR’s future

Leo_drunky currently plays for Sharks Esports, and he’s proven himself to be a valuable member of their team.

He might not have as many accolades as the other candidates on the list. A couple of decent finishes in lower-tier tournaments is the best he’s done. But he’s the youngest of them all, and potentially has the brightest future ahead.

Leo_drunky is only twenty years old and could be a valuable member of the team for years to come.

Finally, the team will still need a coach, and MIBR seems to think Raphael ‘cogu’ Camargo might be the perfect man for the job. The 35-year-old veteran has been retired for a while now. In his prime though, he helped MIBR win ESCW 2006 in the 1.6 days.

Of course, these are all whispers in the wind until MIBR makes an official statement. But if the rumors are true, it’s a promising line-up and one that could help the organization get back on the right track.
