Luminosity Gaming Announce New Pro Fortnite Team for $100 Million Esports Season

North American esports organization Luminosity Gaming have unveiled their brand new professional roster for Fortnite: Battle Royale.

For LG, the process of putting together a competitive roster was an exciting and complex process that involved scouting and close analysis.

This has been in the works for some time as we began scouting talent in January of this year.  We set out to build a team based on merit, ignoring factors like popularity.  We believe we have put together a roster that not only can compete with the best today but has the tools and potential to continue to grow as Fortnite esports develops.

All four players participated in the $500K Week Three Duos tournament of the 'Summer Skirmish' series on July 27.

The players will have some strong and capable mentors to help them on their new journey; LG's content creation team has some of the biggest names in the Fortnite community, including 'Ninja, SypherPK, and CDNThe3rd.'

Although those content creators are not part of the pro roster, they will likely still compete in some events, including the currently ongoing $8 million 'Summer Skirmish' series.
