TaySon joins Guild to complete a formidable foursome, as Guild’s Fortnite roster go to the top of the EU competitive scene!
TaySon, the current back-to-back winner of the Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) trio and solo championships, has built a reputation for consistently strong performances across the FNCS. Ranking as the single best performer in the 2019 and 2020 series, he beat the likes of Benjyfish, MrSavage and Wolfiezin which landed him as one of ESTNN’s “Fortnite Players of the Year”!
Fresh off winning the trio grand finals at the latest FNCS, TaySon will join Guild’s existing Fortnite stars, Flikk, Hen and Anas, as the team continues their track as the EU’s top team - recently taking January’s Cash Cup trio! Having already seen TaySon competing against our current roster in our charity Lockdown Ladder event, we’re excited to see their success as a combined unit!
At only 16 years old, he already has tournament winnings totalling over $224,000 across 28 events, and has a combined social following of over 1m across Twitter, Instagram, Twitch and Youtube. Check out what Grant Rousseau, Guild’s Director of Esports, and Tayson had to say about this exciting announcement.
Grant Rousseau, Guild’s Director of Esports
“2020 was a landmark year for Guild Esports and Fortnite, with our talented roster dominating the competition to make us the current number 1 FN team in the EU. Signing TaySon shows that we have no plans to slow down in 2021 - we’re ready to take things to another level and cement our position as the Fortnite team to beat. We’re the squad to watch out for this year, and we’re ready for our rivals to try to catch us.
“We have already made an explosive entrance into the Fortnite scene, quickly rising to become the team-to-watch in 2021, and with TaySon’s signing we have a talent mix to be reckoned with. Guild isn’t treating our recent gains with complacency, and we’re ready to dominate FNCS.”
“I’m really proud of how far I’ve come and to be ranked as the number one player in Europe - now I’m ready to take the next step with Guild. I’m determined to make myself into an even better player with the help and support of my new team, and bring home trophies for Guild. You’ll be seeing us take over the league tables again soon, so you better keep watching!”
