Tundra signs more UK talent including its first streamers and new Fortnite player

London-based esports organization Tundra Esports has made a string of signings over the past few days, including its first content creators.

First up, the org has signed Jorhdys, a Scottish Rocket League and Valorant content creator who has a combined social following of more than 35,000.

Tundra made the announcement in trademark Danny Lopez style, after bringing him on board as director of marketing and content to Tundra last month.

“Jorhdys will add a new dimension to our content output at Tundra,” said Danny Lopez. “We want to create content that goes head to head with the tier 1’s of this world and even turns heads outside of esports. Audience growth and engagement is a key short term goal for us too, so by getting more content creators on board, we can make this goal a reality.”

Jorhdys added: “I’m really excited to be signing with Tundra. It’ll be my first real experience working with an organization that has a lot of ambition and positive attitude towards creativity and growing together. I’m looking forward to all the things Tundra has planned going into the future and I hope that it will be a great chapter in my streaming career.”

Joining Jorhdys is Luke Dutch, another UK streamer as announced below:

Luke created some interesting headlines in mainstream media last year when the 6ft 5″ streamer received Pizza Hut UK’s largest-ever pizza – the same height as him.

and lastly, Zachariah ‘Pinq’ Siddall, a pro Fortnite esports player from the UKhas joined Tundra’s ranks.

Pinq is currently ranked second in the UK and 15th in EU, and Pinq was previously signed to another UK org, Rix.GG.

“Pinq fits perfectly with our vision for Fortnite” says Anthony Graham, director of esports and operations at Tundra. “He combines high energy and raw talent and it comes through in his recent performances in Cash Cups and other Fortnite tournaments.”

“I’m really excited to be signing with Tundra,” Pinq added. “Already briefly working with the organisation, it’s clear they are incredibly ambitious while still wanting to foster a positive attitude towards creativity and growing together. I’m looking forward to all the things Tundra have planned going into the future and I hope that it will be a great chapter in my career.”

The signing of Pinq comes just two months after Tundra’s signing of Harry ‘Veno’ Pearson, whose performance in recent Duos Cash Cups saw him notch a top five finish in his most recent tournament.

It seems Danny Lopez is on a mission to turn esports players into actors.

Tundra us due to announce another content creator to its ranks later this week, so we look forward to seeing their acting debut too.
