Team Secret is no stranger to the electronic sports scene. While it is known in Dota 2 circles, the team has shown no hesitation in exploring new fields within electronic sports, even if a game does not yet have a formal competitive structure. This was the case on Wednesday when Team Secret announced the signing of a four-player team Fortnite with an unexpected surprise: one of the new recruits, British Kyle "Mongraal" Jackson, is 13 years old.  "I really had no idea I was 13 until the team told me," said Team Secret CEO John Yao. "When we looked at some of the videos and watched their game, it was not apparent, what immediately struck me was how mature it was, and it sounded like one of the other guys," he added.
Mongraal has only been playing for four years, starting with Call of Duty ] and only recently came to the giant battle royale. It turns out that it was natural, although he had to obtain the consent of his parents before logging in with Team Secret. "It's a great opportunity for me … I spoke with them thoroughly, and they are a great support for everything," said Mongraal.
While he is now one of the first professionals Fortnite professionals, Mongraal will still attend school.
The signature of Yao de Mongraal and his teammates, who reside in Norway, the United Kingdom and Latvia, occurred despite the fact that a formal structure of electronic sports for the game still does not exist, although Yao believes that the Epic developer soon rectifies that. "Our guess is that Epic Games will also announce something and get behind the scenes esports … so, before everyone jumps and all the good players sign up, we wanted to make a preemptive strike," Yao said.
The Epic proposition includes an age restriction for professional competition once it announces Fortnite official integration of electronic sports, similar to Overwatch League, isn & # 39; staggering Yao, either. "I do not care a bit … even if they have restrictions like that at the editorial level, there will be tournaments where there will be no age limit," Yao said.
Until then, the squad is ready and waiting to face all the challengers in any informal tournament they wish to enter.
