After Season 7, a Fortnite veteran and two-time FNCS winner decide to retire.
It’s not very often that a player decides to retire after winning two major Fortnite titles in three seasons. That does not appear to be the case for Malachi “Reverse2k” Greiner, the winner of Seasons 4 and 6 of the Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS). The Fortnite veteran has competed at the highest level for the past three years.
Based on some recent Twitch footage and a tweet indicating that Chapter 2 – Season 7 will be his last, it appears that his mounting irritation and resentment toward the game finally reached a boiling point. This season’s FNCS could be one of the most successful champions in Fortnite’s history.
Reverse2k had a rough start to the season. Despite winning his second Axe of Champions with colleagues Deyy and Mero, the two Reverse2k controller players parted up. The Solo World Cup Finalist now has no choices equivalent to what he had for the previous three seasons.
Mero and Deyy appealed to World Cup Champion Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf for help, but Bugha ultimately backtracked. The two controller players reluctantly returned to Reverse2k, who was obviously irritated and less eager to give Fortnite his all. Reverse2k, Mero, and Deyy teamed together to win the Trio Cash Cup and place third in the DreamHack Cash Cup Extra. Regardless, Reverse2k has expressed his desire to stop playing competitive Fortnite for a long time.
Reverse2k commented on Twitter, “I am absolutely quitting after this season.” Despite the fact that he and his teammates have taken up where they left off last season, the Fortnite veteran appears to be exhausted. After winning last season, Reverse2k, Mero, and Deyy have all qualified for the FNCS Season 7 Finals, and they have a good chance of winning again.
Nevertheless, because Reverse2k does not have large numbers, there has always been a narrative of contempt. He serves as the in-game leader (IGL) for his trio, which entails guiding them through tumultuous circumstances, tarping and dumping prized weapons, and compiling eliminations. Many fans and players in the scene, unfortunately, do not give Reverse2k the credit he deserves. His experience, skill, and understanding of competitive Fortnite are priceless.
It’s difficult to predict whether Reverse2k will stick to his plan to retire. He, Mero, and Deyy are the finest trio in NA East, as previously said. Another FNCS victory would undoubtedly extend his career, but he appears to be dissatisfied with Fortnite at this point. To wrap up this season, we’ll have to wait and see what happens.
On September 4 and 5, the FNCS Season 7 Finals will be held.
