On March the 30th, was made the start of a major event for French esport and video games universe : the Gamers Assembly. In Poitiers, the convention’s 19th edition brought over 24 000 visitors who came to see 18 different tournaments including the Shadow Trophy, Fortnite‘s tournament, the Epic Games‘ Battle Royale.
This was for the team Fortnite GameWard the occasion to gain recognition. Indeed, even if some of the members, MateYeux and the coach HellRaiser, have taken part in the Lyon e-Sport, this LAN tournament was the first for the GameWard’s roster.
The format shift, including 12 teams games instead of 25, and the lack of familiarity between the players, led the team to an underperformance. They didn’t reach the final round.
However, upon their return, the players were back on track. With the help of their coach HellRaiser and their analyst Nounours, they worked on a performance oriented program.
On April the 10th, the Team GameWard participate in the War Legend Fortnite Tournament #8 featuring teams like OSERV ESPORT, recent winners of the Shadow Trophy, and Millenium Salty. Their efforts were profitable as they climbed their way to the fourth place and manage to complete two Top2 among their five games.
More recently, this week-end, during the first week of the RedFox tournament, the Team GameWard strengthened its comeback ! By doing in order a Top3, two Top1 and a Top4, the team finished this first phase as the leader of their pool.
The players will continue down that path and go on with their efforts for their next big event, in May, the DreamHack Tours 2018.
