Fortnite World Cup Winner Nyhrox Joins Red Bull Gaming

The Red Bull Gaming team grows further with a Fortnite World Cup Champion.


Professional Fortnite player Emil “Nyhrox” Bergquist Pedersen is joining Red Bull Gaming as an esports athlete, the Norweigan confirmed today on Twitter. He adds himself to an extensive list of influential competitive gamers throughout history who hold the distinct honor of calling themselves a Red Bull Athlete. Nyhrox is one of only three players to achieve Fortnite’s most significant accomplishment in its four-year history.

He and former duo partner David “aqua” Wang journeyed across the pond in July of 2019 to claim their first Fortnite World Cup Championship. The European pair outplayed 49 of the world’s best tandems to earn that accolade and a cool $3M USD to split. Nyhrox channeled his extensive accomplishment into a deal with a premier presence in esports.

Nyhrox Announces Red Bull Gaming Sponsorship

The Norweigan joins all-around icon and former Fortnite superstar Tyler “Ninja” Blevins as a select few Red Bull-sponsored gaming athletes. “Officially a Red Bull Athlete,” wrote Nyhrox in a tweet earlier today. A picture included in the tweet shows Nyhrox in a Red Bull hat and several logos throughout his space.

The energy drink company has not acknowledged the signing on Twitter or their official website. This signing is a significant accomplishment for Nyhrox, a current member of the Noway-based Nordavind DNB esports organization.

Red Bull Gaming in History

The team behind Red Bull involved themselves in esports very early in the going. Former professional Halo player David “Walsh” Walshy became the brand’s first ambassador and sponsored gaming athlete in 2006 while he and his team Final Boss dominated the Major League Gaming circuit. Walshy continued with the brand for an extended period throughout the remainder of his competitive gaming career.

Current 100 Thieves Owner and CEO – Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag – inked a deal with Red Bull Gaming during the height of his professional Call of Duty career in 2013 and reconnected in 2019 after 100 Thieves’ creation. Many other esports athletes have filtered in and out of Red Bull Gaming since 2006.

The addition of Nyhrox makes him the first full-fledged Fortnite professional to possess a solo sponsorship with the energy drink brand. While the deal’s exact ramifications are not clear at this point, we can expect a lot of content and perhaps an official statement regarding Nyhrox and Red Bull.

Best moveset for Garchomp in Pokémon Go

Avatar

Published

on

Garchomp is almost always a threat no matter what version of Pokémon you are playing. And in Pokémon Go, it is an absolute monster once you get into the later variants of the Go Battle League. 

Like most Dragon-types in Pokémon Go, the matchup is very important when taking into account when and where you decide to use a Garchomp. The Dragon/Ground-type has a strong movepool, but will still struggle against many top picks in all but the Ultra League. 

Overall, Garchomp is great, with 261 attack, 193 defense, 239 speed, and a Max CP of 4,479 at level 50. You can use it to hit like a truck in PvE, and it is an effective choice in high-level competition. 

You will almost always be using the Dragon Tail/Outrage combo in both PvE and PvP movesets when you need Dragon-type output, purely because it has a max output of 50.2 DPS. Outside of that, Mud Shot should probably replace Dragon Tail as a Quick Move because it can easily build up energy for the costly Outrage and Earthquake combo. 

Fire Blast is a fine tech, but outside of hitting Fairy-types, and being the only option Garchomp has to hit the heavily used Master League mainstay Togekiss, you should just forget it exists since the upside of Outrage/Earthquake, or even Sand Tomb is much better. 

There are better alternatives to Garchomp in every meta, including multiple Legendary Pokémon or Pokémon that have a better typing for specific matchups. For that reason, you should probably not build your team around Garchomp in any league, but it is a fine addition to any squad in Ultra and Master Leagues.

If you don’t already have a Battle League-ready Garchomp, Pokémon Go’s June Community Day will focus on its pre-evolution Gible. You can likely expect Mega Garchomp to be dropping soon too, since Mega Altaria is being added for the Swablu Community Day on May 15.
