Epic Games is honoring Fortnite “OG” and one of the most underrated players of all time with a tournament in his name.

The Reverse2k Cup is happening, and it’s been a long time coming for a player who often goes overlooked in the grand scheme of competitive Fortnite.

He now joins an exclusive list of fellow professional players and content creators such as Benjy “Benjyfishy” Fish,  Nick “NickEh30” Amyoony and Kyle “Mongraal” Jackson in receiving a Fortnite tournament in his name. Let’s see what the Reverse2k Cup has to offer.
