WE'VE SIGNED ANOTHER FNCS CHAMPION!
We're delighted to announce we are adding FNCS Champion Jannis 'JannisZ' Matwin to our incredible Fortnite roster.
Currently #3 in Europe, JannisZ has just secured his second FNCS title and at only 15 years old, he has amassed 750,000 followers across Twitch, Twitter, YouTube & Instagram, with $180,000 in tournament winnings.
As well as being the reigning trios FNCS champion, other notable wins for JannisZ include the 2020 Marvel Duo Cup and Fortnite’s 2020 Champion Series Invitational Europe - where as a solo, he beat the likes of Wolfiez, aqua & Th0masHD.
JannisZ will be competing under the Guild banner in all upcoming European and international Fortnite tournaments, starting with FNCS Chapter 2 Season 6.
Check out what our Esports Director and JannisZ himself had to say about the signing:
Grant Rousseau, Guild’s Director of Esports:
“We’ve already reached new heights in 2021 with our first major trophy - but to be the best, you need to keep on building and setting new goals and challenges. Signing JannisZ is part of this continuous growth - he’s an exceptional player, and will further strengthen an already dominant Guild EU Fortnite team. We’re looking forward to welcoming JannisZ to the squad, and bringing home more trophies for Guild this year”.
“I’ve achieved a lot in Fortnite - but it was a real highlight to win the recent FNCS trios with Hen. I’ve gotten to know the Guild squad well, through tournaments and the Lockdown Ladder. Joining the organisation and playing alongside some of the players in the world was an amazing opportunity to take the next step in my career. I’m looking forward to doing my part to bring Guild Esports even more success”.
