Introducing Kyoto eSports Fortnite
After months of searching for the right team, Kyoto eSports has finally decided on a concrete group of 4 for our Fortnite Team. We are excited to finally announce that the professional Fortnite Team, Wakanda, has now signed with Kyoto. Our team is comprised of our Team Captain, Maçon “T.Challa” Boyer, our In-Game Leader, Nicholas “Milly” Anowar, our Close-Range Specialist, Mike “MikeITM” Kassimis, and our Long-Range Specialist, Kyle “Kyeul” Tardo.
T'Challa is eager to be part of Kyoto Esports and break into the competitive Fortnite scene. Being primarily a squads player, T'Challa has hit rank #3 for squads on the Fortnite ladder, even while carrying his no-skin friends to numerous victory royales. He also lead his team "Wakanda" to take the most legitimate wins in season 3 of Step1Br scrimmages. Before Fortnite, T'Challa was a casual PUBG player and the team captain of a first place TF2 Highlander team. In real life, he frequently competed in local kickboxing tournaments, where his opponents found him to be just as untouchable as he is in Fortnite.
“The main reason I got into Fortnite was to dance on people with fly skins. Four months go by, and next thing you know I’m a professional player. When I first started playing, I never expected to go pro or anything like that, so I’m just thankful and happy to be here. Now that I’m here, I plan on taking home every LAN win possible. I'm going to dance on the world's best players and eat the most beef jerky!"
-Maçon "T'Challa" Boyer
Milly, also known as Millennialz, sits at 22,000 thousand kills and is within the Top .01% of Fortnite Players. Before Fortnite, Milly played on a competitive amateur Overwatch team. Milly is the In-Game-Leader of Kyoto and has a lot of experience in strategies and shot calling from the other games he played, while also having a ton of experience from battle royales by playing H1Z1 and PUBG.
“I’ve always been passionate about gaming since I grew up with a very older brother. I played competitive games like Halo and such since I was a kid and I knew this is what I wanted to do. When Fortnite came out I did everything to be the best and I knew I’d get to the top. Now that I have this opportunity I can’t wait to go to LANs and blow people away with our team. I believe we are and can be one of the best teams in the game. I’m just ready to kick ass and chew bubble gum but I’m all out of gum.”
-Nicholas "Milly" Anowar
MikeITM" Formerly Known as Mikeinthemornin was rated as a top 20 player in the US in Season 2 and 3 for solos. Prior to Fortnite, Call of Duty and Destiny's Trials of Osiris was where he filled his competitive itch.
"I'm happy to take one step closer towards my dream of being a professional gamer. With the help of Kyoto Esports, the future is bright and I'm excited for the opportunity to play for a great organization. Fortnite has taken over my bank account so I'm hoping to win some LAN's to recover from buying so many skins."
-Mike "MikeITM" Kassimis
Kyeul, also known as Kyle, has been playing Fortnite since the beginning of its release. He has been top 20 in score, kills, and wins and has over 1600 wins.

“I'm just grateful to have an opportunity to play for Kyoto. I am confident in my playstyle and our team’s synergy. We are developing more and more every single day. I look forward to winning multiple LANs and being even more known and feared in the Fortnite community. A vision without action is merely a dream. It’s time for action.”
