The world-famous Fortnite profile Endre «Endretta» Byre (15) is ready for the Nordic e-sports club Nordavind, in which NHL player Mats Zuccarello (33) recently invested.
This is confirmed by Steffen Willumsen, commercial manager at Nordavind, to VG on Tuesday. The team itself has also announced the signing on Twitter.
– I have a great desire to establish myself as the world’s best Fortnite player, Byre himself says in an e-mail to VG.
The Stavanger boy Endre Byre, better known as “Endretta” in the e-sports community, was one of three Norwegians who participated in the Fortnite WC last year. While Emil “Nyhrox” Bergquist Pedersen became world champion in the duo championship, Byre became best Norwegian in 24th place in the solo part.
Now he is ready for the professional e-sports team Nordavind DNB. Last week, NHL star Mats Zuccarello could tell that he had invested in the club.
– I think it’s really cool that a legend like Zucca gets involved in e-sports with great commitment, and of course in Nordavind. I have not officially greeted him yet, but hope to do so next year. I hope that I get the opportunity to learn a little from him, so that I can develop even more in a positive direction as an e-sports athlete, says Byre.
Zuccarello believes it is time for e-sports to be recognized.
– It may be what you have not looked at, due to the habits you have heard about before. Bad food, bad habits – that’s what you want to change and show that it is possible to be a top athlete and game. It’s a game, but it’s a sport in itself. If chess is a sport, gaming is a sport. Then one must acknowledge it. It’s the biggest thing in the world, so to speak, almost all children in the world do it, and people my age do it, he says.
Byre will now work towards the goal of becoming world champion.
– The overall goal and motivation is probably the same as for most people with ambitions in sports and sports: become world champions and then first to defend the title, he says.
– Why Nordavind?
– As a Norwegian athlete, it feels very natural for me to sign with the biggest and most winning club in Norway. I have a great desire to establish myself as the world’s best Fortnite player, and from a development perspective I think it is best done together with a player that operates from home, represents the same values as me and that Nordavind has over the years bred several players of championship caliber in addition to a world champion.
