Former Call of Duty caster Jack “CouRage” Dunlop has announced that he will be returning to the microphone to cast at the Esports Arena Fortnite Battle Royale tournament – hosted by Tyler “Ninja” Blevins.
CouRage was a fan favorite caster in the Call of Duty esports scene, bringing excitement and hype to the big moments, matched with excellent game knowledge.
He reached his pinnacle moment by casting the grand final of the Call of Duty World Championship Grand Final, as OpTic Gaming won their first world championship, beating Team Envy.
He was expected to continue as a full time casting and hosting talent with MLG for the Call of Duty: WWII season, but following the completion of Stage One of the CWL Pro League regular season announced he would be stepping away.
Now focusing solely on his live stream and YouTube channel, CouRage has quickly become a very popular content creator, joining OpTic Gaming, and streaming almost daily – his game of choice of course, Fortnite: Battle Royale.
So when the announcement of Fortnite tournament taking place at the Esports Arena in Las Vegas – in partnership with the most popular Fortnite player and streamer, Ninja – came around, CouRage’s experience and expertise was perfectly matched to cast the event.
Super excited to announce I’ll be casting @Ninja‘s event at the Esports Arena Las Vegas next weekend!
Can’t wait to get back in the booth! Going to be a great event 🙂
