20-year-old Fortnite pro Queasy becomes the third addition to Galaxy Racer’s formidable competitive outfit in EU.
After almost a full year of free agency, Aleksa "Queasy" Cvetkovic says he’s “finally found the right home”. The Serbian Fortnite star revealed on Thursday that he has joined Galaxy Racer Esports, often referred to simply as GXR.
In the obligatory announcement skit, the GXR leadership team are relieved to see Queasy turn up as they desperately search for someone to play in the next big Fortnite event. It turns out he actually spent six days in Dubai filming and meeting the owners.
Queasy has been around the competitive Fortnite scene since the World Cup days, but found his first real success in Chapter 2 Season 2. He and TruleX crowned an impressive FNCS run with a second-place finish in Finals, propelling them both to the top of every fan’s ones-to-watch list.
The pair joined forces with Jur3ky in C2:S6, consistently dominating highground as they won the FNCS Trios title. Fast forward to 2022 and Queasy is still very much in command. In March, he and Hen became the first European FNCS Champions of Fortnite Chapter 3.
As a connoisseur of the no-mobility meta, Queasy will fancy his chances of bringing home a trophy during his first season under GXR. He is travelling to Sweden this weekend to compete in the $200k DreamHack LAN, a perfect way to get things started.
With Epic confirming the return of official in-person Fortnite tournaments, we may see more of these big-name signings in the coming months. Orgs will want a strong showing in the FNCS Invitational this November, and to get ahead before a potential World Cup or larger international event is announced.
