“I am incredibly happy to have won this tournament, especially since several big names were participating! No one expected me to win as I have never won a major tournament before this one. It goes to show that with hard work and dedication, anyone can win a major tournament and I look forward to winning more in the future,” Fortin said.
In order to win the Fortnite tournament, Vincent had to defeat some of the biggest names in the game, including famous players like Bhuga, Faze Centered, Faze Dubs, and many others. These players are part of the biggest teams in the field of esports, with budgets of several hundred million dollars dedicated to player development and training.
Following his victory, Fortin signed with Team 33. Headquartered in Hollywood, California, we previously covered Team 33 when they signed an 8-year-old gamer. Joseph Deen, known as 33 Gosu, received a $33,000 bonus.
“We are very honored and blown away at the opportunity to sign Vincent to Team 33. We followed him closely during the Fortnite All-Stars tournament and were very impressed by his performance,” says Tyler Gallagher, CEO of Team 33. “We look forward to working closely with Vincent and we are confident that with our current team including Vincent we will be one of the Top 3 Fortnite teams in NA this year.”
