Method move into Fortnite esports after acquiring team

UK-based esports organisation Method have broken into Fortnite esports.

Their Fortnite roster consists of:

  • Kevin "Noizeeh" Jaskiewicz
  • Martin "MartinCreek" Bäcklund
  • Jonathan "Jetpacks" Bergius
  • Rasmus "Rasmusenn" Wiklundh

All the players are from Sweden, other than SK's former Vainglory player Jetpacks who's based in Norway. Most of the players have esports experience in other games.

Noizeeh is currently ranked number two with his K/D ratio in Fortnite; he's a former pro H1Z1 player, having been a Dreamhack Winter 2017 Solo & Teams finalist for H1Z1, and has been playing Fortnite since release.

Martincreek, meanwhile, has achieved multiple top placements in Hearthstone tournaments. He also played Overwatch since early beta and reached top 500 several times. Martincreek has battle royale experience since the original mod in Arma 2.

Fortnite is still a relatively new game for PC, Xbox One and PS4 that is aiming for a full release this year. It's a battle royale shooter that blends elements with Minecraft, allowing players to craft weapons and build structures.

It's been a hit so far, as the battle royale genre continues to expand, buoyed by the success of PUBG last year.

Jetpacks said: "Method is a super cool organisation and brand, with awesome members and staff whom me and my team can work well with.

"We're really hungry to grow as a team, and through our relationship with Method we'll be able to do that exactly."

Rasmusenn added: "I am really glad and thankful for the opportunity that has been given to me and my team by Method. I am super excited and really looking forward to working with such a big organisation - and I am also looking forward to perform at LAN representing Method."

Method started out more than 12 years ago as a World of Warcraft guild. Today it competes in a variety of games including CSGO, PUBG, Rocket League, Street Fighter and more. Method also compete in the Gfinity Elite Series after joining the competition last year.

In terms of month-to-month audience, Method claims to be the most watched esports team on Twitch.
