UK-based organisation Guild Esports have this morning announced the signing of three top-ranked professional Fortnite players.

Guild have brought Blacha, Chico and PabloWingu to their professional Fortnite roster, players that have already won more than $185,000 combined in tournament prize pools in 2023. They will now be competing under the Guild banner in European and international Fortnite tournaments.

The new players will replace Anas (Denmark) and Hen (UK/Lithuania), who will leave the org following the conclusion of the FNCS season. Hen will leave on October 21st 2023 and Anas on October 25th 2023.

Blacha, from Poland, has agreed a six-month contract with Guild, which the company has the option to extend for a further nine months. He joins Guild having made strong performances across Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) events, which are widely considered Fortnite’s most competitive tournaments.

Blacha has additionally seen success in zero-build tournaments, finishing fourth at DreamHack Open in Sweden in June 2023, and qualifying for the Gamers8 tournament in Saudi Arabia.

He has been among the best finishers in FNCS major tournaments this year, including second place in FNCS in August, and goes into the Global Championships in solid form after claiming first place in the Duos Cash Cup in September 2023.

PabloWingu, from Denmark, has signed a one-year contract with Guild, which the company has the option to extend for a further two years.
