Malachi "Reverse2k" Greiner announced in the stream last night that he would embark on a new journey with the up-and-coming esports organization Team New Age.
Some will credit Reverse2k for the amount of time he's been using competitive Fortnite for the past three years. His first documented tournament took place in July 2018, where he and popular Fortnite content creator Daequan "Daequan" Loco from Team SoloMid teamed up for the third week of Summer Skirmish. Reverse2k and Daequan took 16th place out of 48 duos and pocketed $ 3K USD each. The rest, as they say, is history. Reverse2k recently split from Team SoloMid after spending a year with the popular esports organization. The former Fortnite World Cup solo finalist met the free agency and drew an organization's attention to itself.
Announcement of the Reverse2k organization
The 19-year-old teased his new organization with a Twitter post at the end of July. Almost two months later, the announcement is official. Reverse2k has signed with Team New Age. In typical Fortnite fashion, Team New Age has put together some of Reverse2k's most impressive clips of the past three years in a short YouTube video. One of them was Reveres2k's longtime duo partner and gaming superstar Tyler "Ninja" Blevins. Reverse2k and Ninja became an underdog story a year ago, with the two nearly qualifying for the Fortnite World Cup Duos event. Unfortunately, Reverse2k and Ninja split up, but not before the duo record was broken. As a three-time finalist of the Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS), Reverse2k finally found an organization that seems to offer a lot more than a fancy logo and eye-catching clothing.
What is Team New Age?
Co-founded by CEO Aaron Kirshenberg, CFO Joaquin Delmar and CTO Shin Mitsuno, this organization promises to "create a team of extraordinary individuals and shock the world". The New Age team, founded in June this year, recently underwent a new branding. The organization changed its color scheme to stand out from other brands in the esports stratosphere. Now they have added one of Fortnite's longest running success stories in Reverse2k.
As a bonus, Team New Age bought a mansion in Virginia. Here, many Fortnite players play on zero ping and improve their chances of winning tournaments. Other players among Team New Age are NA East player OliverOG and NA West player Slick. We expect all three players to move into Team New Age's zero-ping mansion, possibly with others in the future. Reverse2k will try to get its first major tournament win under Team New Age.
