XSET Gaming is here and they are starting out with an impressive Fortnite line-up.
Greg Selkoe has left his position as President of FaZe Clan in order to build a new, unique, Esports organisation. XSET will look to move away from the traditional, male dominant, “Frat House” style org set up, and instead centre around inclusivity.
As well as a selection of content creators and even celebrities such as Atlanta Falcons quarterback Kurt Benkert, XSET will field competitive rosters in Call of Duty, Valorant and Fortnite. So far, four Fortnite pros have been announced, but no doubt more will be added throughout the coming months.
Amongst these first recruits are 3rd place FNCS Duos Finalists, “Knight” and “RogueShark”. After performing increasingly well in team modes, it will be exciting to see how they fare in this season’s Solo competition.
It's not where you're from, but where you're at. Strength, Unity, Diversity. Let's change the game, together.— XSET (@XSETGAMING) July 16, 2020

Joining Knight and RogueShark is controller clutch master “Av”. After bursting into the limelight as the duo of ex Liquid star “Chap”, Av has shown the community just how talented he is this year. He and Chap took 4th in FNCS Duos, and Av has consistently done well in weekly Cash Cups.
Rounding out the XSET team is a true OG of the competitive Fortnite scene. Previously representing Ghost Gaming, anyone who watched the Summer and Fall Skirmish events will be familiar with the name “Snood”. Whilst his recent placements haven’t been anything special, this news could perhaps mark the beginning of a resurgence to the top.
Alongside the competitive roster, XSET have also picked up streamer and creator “ashleybtw”. Her content focuses mainly on Fortnite and you can join Ashley and her 100k+ followers over at twitch.tv/ashleybtw.
New gaming orgs crop up all the time, but with the people and resources behind XSET, this is certainly one to watch out for. #RepTheSet
