Luminosity has a massive signing day that includes some of the top names in Fortnite competitive and content creation.
Luminosity is one of the biggest names in esports, but they seem to have taken a backseat in the Fortnite department over the past year or so. The former LG roster consisted of names top names like Ninja, SypherPK, and Kreo – all of which have moved on from the organization.
Sure, Luminosity had people like Hogman, Kiwiz, and Khuna signed to their roster, but it seemed like a while since the organization made a splash with a big Fortnite signing. At the same time, we’ve been seeing organizations like BBG, FaZe, and NRG sign the biggest names in the game to their teams.
This trend began to change with the signing of Australian YouTuber, MrFreshAsian, but he was only the first domino to fall. On July 22, Luminosity released their massive signing spree, starting with the announcement that they added fellow Australian creator, Muselk, to their roster.
Muselk may be one of the biggest Fortnite creators on the internet, but he was only the first of many signings that Luminosity would announce on July 22. Later in the day, Luminosity announced the signings of Keys, Slackes, Sommerset, Eclipsae, and Jamper.
All of these signings show LG fans that the organization is far from complacent when it comes to Fortnite. In one day, they signed two content creators and a whole squad worth of competitive players.
Several months ago, it seemed like organizations were divesting in Fortnite due to the lack of official tournaments. Well, things have certainly changed since then. Bucke, Kreo, Clix, Slackes, Keys, Jamper, Eclipsae, Calc, and Haz have all been signed within the past month – just to name a few.
Fortnite esports may not be the most competitive game on the planet. It’s far from a game like CS:GO when it comes to an even playing field and competitive mechanics. That being said, it’s incredibly entertaining to watch and the interest from organizations shows that there’s a bright future ahead for the sport. To borrow the words of Jordan Belfort, Fortnite ain’t f***ing leaving.
