Team SoloMid (TSM) have announced the signing of highly coveted Fortnite player Vinny to join their competitive ranks.

TSM made a massive statement of intent back in December when they added Anthony ‘ZexRow’ Colandro. Ever since, rumors have circulated that his long-term duo partner would be joining the team as well.

With Vinny ‘Vinny1x’ Gerald Gilgan continuing to perform consistently well at recent tournaments in both duos and solos, he now joins the official TSM Fortnite team.

The 17-year-old ranks amongst the top earning players in the game thanks to his consistent high placings at recent tournaments. During his first ever event, he took home a whopping $107,500 after finishing third in the Fortnite Fall Skirmish Grand Finals at TwitchCon alongside Zexrow. The pair won the final game in dramatic fashion and narrowly lost second place to FaZe Nate Hill and FaZe Funkbomb.

Vinny also placed in the money during the Fortnite Winter Royale in December and earned $10,000 for his finishing in 12th during the recent Secret Skirmish solo tournament.

“It has always been a dream of mine to join one of the best organizations in the gaming industry,” Gilgan said. “I’ve always seen TSM do great things in every game such as League, PUBG etc. I can’t wait to represent TSM in the upcoming tourneys and give it my all.”

The signing shows that TSM still means business in competitive Fortnite as they now possess one of the most consistent duos in the game. They will have the first chance to compete together under the TSM banner at ESL Katowice this weekend looking for a slice of the $500,000 prize pool.

TSM’s full competitive roster now consists of Myth, Cowboy, Kaysid and Cloud. With many of their duos forming recently, it won’t be long before they started placing high at events.


Epic Games tease more “exclusive” content coming for Fortnite Crew members

According to a brand-new leaked survey, Epic Games have been asking players what they might want to see added as a feature to the Fortnite Crew subscription service, hinting that they’re open to changing up what’s included in the future.

If you took a look at the Fortnite Crew subscription service and thought that it didn’t include enough or didn’t include much that you’d be interested in, Epic Games may be heeding those concerns.

According to Fortnite leaker ‘iFireMonkey,’ a brand-new survey sent out to Fortnite players might indicate that the developer might be open to changing up what a Fortnite Crew subscription comes with. Specifically, the survey asks players to rank what benefits would be most or least important to be added to the service.

Currently, the Fortnite Crew service includes an exclusive skin, some V-Bucks and a free battle pass.

The question itself features a wide range of choices. Some are simply new ways to purchase Fortnite Crew subscriptions, like the ability to buy the service in retail stores and multi-month options.

There are also more gameplay-centric choices, including everything from custom matchmaking options to cosmetics that show off how long you’ve had a subscription. Beyond that, there’s even a choice for a monthly physical mailer with additional rewards outside of what’s given digitally.

Despite this development, it remains to be seen if the company will actually implement any changes. While this survey might indicate that the company is, at the very least, open to adding features to the service, it’s important to remember that it’s not a guarantee that they will.

Currently, the service includes a free battle pass, an exclusive Crew pack, 1000 V-Bucks and an exclusive Member’s Only emote (at least for a limited time), so the implementation of any one of the features listed in the leaked survey would be a welcome addition, especially after its rocky start.

For any updates regarding new features in the Fortnite Crew service and Fortnite in general, keep it locked to Dexerto.
