Expect a new era of content as four huge personalities move into the NRG Fortnite House.
With the signing of Cody “Clix” Conrod early last month, NRG Esports cemented their spot as the number one org in competitive Fortnite. Now though, they are taking things to the next level.
Co-CEO’s Andy Miller and Hector “H3CZ” Rodriguez are two people who truly understand the value of content. Look at any team across the NRG roster, as well as their Overwatch and Call of Duty franchises, and you will see the importance they place on creating storylines around their players.

The man behind a lot of the magic is Executive Producer @GradyRains. Under his guidance, we will get the opportunity to see some of our favorite Fortnite stars in a whole new light.
Initially, it will be Dominick “Unknown” Green, Ben “Edgey” Peterson and new recruit “Ronaldo” joining Clix At the NRG Fortnite House. A house tour video is already in the works, so you won’t have to wait too long for a first look at everything.
The young gamers are already playing on the longstanding “beef” between Unknown and Clix. Spanning back to an incident at the FNCS Solo Invitational, the pair have been trolling each other back and forth for months now.

What started as a genuine hatred is now more of a meme, but this is a great example of the way NRG are able to keep fans engaged. Luckily, Ronaldo has offered to host a “Dr Phil stream” for his two housemates, so I’m sure they’ll be best of friends soon.
Aside from the usual streams and YouTube uploads, you can hope for a bunch of exciting non-Fortnite related content to feast on. From challenge videos to IRL vlogs, the possibilities are endless. In the future, the boys could even get a visit from Benjyfishy.
This was a genius move from NRG and will ensure that, no matter the climate of competitive Fortnite, their players will be the ones everyone is talking about. Exciting times are ahead and it will be interesting to watch everything unfold.
