We couldn’t mention Psalm without diving into his Duos partner Cented. Evan Barron, known as Cented is amongst the top Fortnite Competitive players in North America West, and maybe even the world! Cented plays Fortnite competitively for the Team Liquid organization. Team Liquid is involved in other competitive games like League of Legends, DOTA 2 and Street Fighter.

Cented has also placed highly in tournaments like the Chapter 3 Fortnite Season 1 Cash Cup, Duo Fortnite Champion Series Qualifier, and many more! We think he is still a secret tipp for betting on him, so make sure when you try to look to bet on to choose a platform operating with a good iGaming solution.

Psalm is another of the top placements in the Fortnite World Cup. Psalm was the second place finisher in the Fortnite World Cup Solos event, beating out a player count of 98. With how cut throat competitive Fortnite can be, being amongst the top 3 with a player count of 100 is massively impressive!


Psalm’s esports Fortnite skills span far past the Solo World Cup placement. Psalm also has an impressive Duos track record with another pro Fortnite competitive player, Cented. Psalm and Cented have placed top 3 in loads of Fortnite tournaments like the Luxe Cup in NA West, World Cup Warmup, and the Gauntlet tournament.

Rojo was a runner-up for the 2019 Fortnite World Cup in the Duos category. Rojo teamed up with another Fortnite competitive player, Wolfiez to try and take a top space at the Fortnite World Cup. Unfortunately, Rojo and Wolfiez placed second behind Nyhrox and Aqua. However, Rojo and Wolfiez still took home over $2 million dollars in winnings from the Fortnite World Cup prize pool.


The teamwork involved in placing top 3 in a Fortnite Duos World Cup is unimaginable. The cohesiveness shown between Rojo and Wolfiez puts them comfortably on the list of best Fortnite players. Even just qualifying for a spot in the Fortnite World Cup is impressive enough!

Max Merrien, known as Magin in the Fortnite esports world is a professional Fortnite player from the EU. Magin is a member of Lithuanian based esports team, Team Atlantis.

EpikWhale is the NA West version of Mero, the current top player in the region. EpikWhale is a member of the Fortnite competitive team NRG. NRG is a massive esports organization based in North America. Along with Fortnite NRG has professional teams in major games like Apex Legends, Overwatch, Hearthstone, and many many more. EpikWhale also placed second right behind Bugha in the Fortnite World Cup.Along with a World Cup top 3 placement, EpikWhale closed off Fortnite Chapter 2 successfully with a cash cup placement.


Unfortunately, EpikWhale couldn’t quite sneak out a top placement, but instead took home a cash prize with a second place position in the Solo Cash Cup. Some interesting trivia on EpikWhale is that his tool of choice is a controller, rather than a mouse and keyboard like most players in competitive Fortnite. Playing with a controller and managing a top placement in the World Cup, as well as consistent placements in other tournaments make EpikWhale a contender for best Fortnite player.
