KingJay took to Twitter with his excitement following the announcement. “LETS GOOOOO beyond excited to announce I'm officially signing with @builtbygamers as a Halo player alongside my teammates @Nebuula, @Nemassist & @Twissted_Mindss, it's time to get to work,” he wrote. Minds echoed a similar sentiment, stating “I'm super excited to play with this team thank you for the opportunity @builtbygamers.”
While the team has not spent much time together, their performance in the HCS Kick-Off Qualifier is reassuring. They had only practiced three times leading into the tournament. The newly acquired BBG roster looks ahead to HCS Raleigh in two weeks, where they'll battle through the open bracket for a share of $250K USD.
