Professional Career

After serving for two years in Wave Esports, JannisZ joined the top-ranking EU Fortnite team of Guild Esports in 2021. This London-based esports organization extended their roster by signing him up, and it was a major breakthrough for them as JannisZ was then already the current winner of the Fortnite Champion Series tournament.

He joined as the fifth member of the EU Fortnite team, alongside Nikolaj “Flikk” Froslev, Tai “TaySon” Starcic, Anas “Anas” EI-Abd, and Henrik “Hen” Mclean. JannisZ kicked off with the FNCS Chapter 2 Season 6, followed by many international and European tournaments.

Simultaneously, signing such an exceptional player was part of Guild’s consistent growth. It simply strengthened its already ruling EU Fortnite team as JannisZ brought Guild Esports more trophies.
