Frequently asked Questions
When did Benjy start playing Fortnite?
Benjy started playing Fortnite in Season 3 (March/April 2018)
When did Benjy realise he could go pro?
February 2019 after winning the Montana Black event with his duo partner Martin aka MrSavage
How does Benjy handle pressure at such a young age?
Benjy has always been active and enjoyed sports including rugby, cricket, football and ten-pin bowling. Unfortunately, due to developing Osgood Schlatter’s he was in a lot of pain and had to stop his sporting activities. Benjy has always enjoyed the challenge and pressure of competing at the highest level in traditional sports, and Fortnite allowed him to continue to fuel his competitiveness as an esports athlete.
How does Benjy meet Martin – MrSavage?
Benjy and Martin were both in the same friends group so they had talked to each other prior to being duo partners. There was a solo gauntlet tournament which they were both streaming and kept getting in each other’s games and fighting each other. Martin messaged Benjy and they started talking and asked he would like to try out as his duo. They instantly clicked and had a natural chemistry subsequently they decided to partner and became one of the few players to double qualify for solos and duos in the Fortnite World Cup 2019.
How long does Benjy practise every day?
It depends on if there are any major tournaments but on average about 8 hours a day.
What is your advice for players to improve and start placing?
Watch VOD reviews of the top players and practising your mechanics. Solo Arena and just playing a lot.
What are Benjy’s Plans for the Future?
At the moment Benjy is focusing on playing competitively and looking to win FNCS and the World Cup 2021. Longer term I think he will remain within the world of esports possibly coaching, managing or owning his own organisation.
