Alliance picks up Fortnite Duo
Gothenburg, Sweden – August 8th 2018 – The world-renowned esports team Alliance have picked up the Swedish Fortnite Battle Royale Duo Harald ‘Powder‘ Gimre and Gustav ‘Tickeling‘ Hogland. Powder and Tickeling will be representing Alliance in upcoming esports tournaments as well as in the Fortnite streaming community. While Tickeling is a new face to Alliance, Powder has previously represented the organisation’s Hearthstone team in 2017. Alliance are happy to welcome him back and we are enthusiastic about the duo’s future in competitive Fortnite.
“It is a great honor to represent Alliance again. Switching from Hearthstone to Fortnite has been a tough journey but I am very excited about the progression of this game and from what I have seen so far I can only imagine how good Fortnite tournaments will continue to be. It has been a pleasure watching the first events Epic has produced and I am super excited to be able to represent Alliance in future events.”
