The 1.8 million dollar man known as Psalm is testing free agency in competitive Fortnite.
For those of you who don’t know, Harrison “psalm” Chang is amongst the elite in competitive Fortnite. Although not mainly known for his mechanical skills, Psalm possesses a comprehension of Fortnite that is a cut above many others. At the most significant LAN event in the Battle Royale’s history, the Fortnite World Cup, Psalm took second place. He finished only behind Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf and secured himself $1.8M USD. As of today, Psalm has parted ways with Counter Logic Gaming (CLG) and will test the free agency market.

Psalm has compiled quite the career for himself in competitive Fortnite. A former professional Heroes of the Storm player in his own right, Psalm found a niche in Fortnite in December of 2018. After achieving stable placements during the Fall Skirmish is 2018, the 24-year-old took fourth place at WSOE 3 alongside Keenan “Rhux” Santos. Leading into the Fortnite World Cup Qualifiers, Psalm achieved second, fifth and third respectively in two NA West Gauntlet tournaments and the Scallywag Cup. He went on to win the NA West Luxe Cup with Evan “Cented” Barron and subsequently finished runner-up in the World Cup Warmup.
One of Psalm’s notable Fortnite moments took place during the Winter Royale in 2018. He unleashed the force of the Infinity Blade and inflicted damage on some of the biggest names in Fortnite. Psalm’s Fortnite World Cup performance ranks at the top of his year-long endeavor with Counter Logic Gaming. He remained consistent through both Fortnite Champion Series competitions. Although the reason is unclear, Psalm felt it was time to move on from CLG.
What’s Next for Psalm?
My contract with @clgaming has ended.
They were instrumental to a successful 2019, and I am grateful to them.
I am now a free agent for 2020
My achievements beyond Fortnite:
-Sexy high quality facecam
-Low quality face to not distract from gameplay
Would love your RT's

Counter Logic Gaming announced via Twitter while also referencing the infamous Winter Royale tirade put up by Psalm. His Tweet indicates his interest in seeking opportunities from other organizations. Some of the top Fortnite representers include FaZe Clan, NRG Esports and Team Liquid. It will take time for potential offers to surface, but in the meantime, Psalm maintains a successful Twitch stream. In addition to his stream, the former Counter Logic Gaming competitor has embarked on the coaching path in competitive Fortnite.
Gonna be getting into coaching on the side 🙂 DM's open
All skill levels -- from the basics of building/editing/aiming to higher tier comp strategy to mental composure/comms
Would love RT's ♥️

With more than $1.8M USD in the bank, Psalm feels his knowledge can benefit aspiring Fortnite pros. We’ve seen successful coaching endeavors by the likes of DestinysJesus and DBree, so it’s not surprising to see Psalm take this route. The World Cup runner-up still has some gas in the tank as well, so expect to see him competing in Fortnite throughout 2020.
