“I’m officially quitting competitive Fortnite to pursue Valorant. “

The UK-based gamer kept his message short. Through the video, he clarified his reasons for quitting Fortnite and also let everyone know about his plans ahead.

However, Benjyfishy has revealed that he is extremely grateful to NRG and he is staying on the team. Instead of doing Fortnite-based content, NRG and Benjyfishy will work together for Valorant-based content.

Benjyfishy took the opportunity to thank many people within the community

“[To Savage] Literally made my career and without him I’d be nowhere close to where I am at right now. [He is] the best player I have ever played with and I’ve made so many memories with him, from qualifying to World Cup to winning dreamhack. Genuinely going to be a friend for life”
The gamer took the opportunity to thank some of the individuals who have been an integral part of his journey. He shared his appreciation for Savage, Goofy, Rockit, and several others.

 

The official social media channel of Fortnite Competitive extended their gratitude towards Benjyfishy. His contribution to the game and its promotion was remarkable and it certainly did not go unnoticed.
