Included along with it came a YouTube video showing some of the best moments and highlights from Ceez's live-stream.
Talking about the huge announcement live on his stream, CDN gave some insight as to what factors helped him choose LG above all of the orgs that were interested in him.
A former pro Gears of War player, Ceez has been involved with online gaming and content creation for a very long time, and has seen his popularity continue to rise as he transitioned from playing H1Z1 in years past to Fortnite: Battle Royale, among other games.
In addition to being a permanent participant in the weekly Friday Fortnite competition, the streamer was also recently invited to the E3 gaming convention in Los Angeles, where he competed in the $3M Fortnite Pro-Am Celebrity Charity Tournament.
Ceez's abilities in Fortnite have also left the door open on the possibility of him competing for the org in future esports events. LG currently do have a pro Fortnite player - SypherPK - but have not yet officially announced a set pro roster.
