Welcome Lasers & Igo

POSTED BY Grauling July 6, 2019

Today we welcome Pedro “Lasers” Kaique Carvalho and his duo Igor Daniel “Igo” Dias Ortiz to the Singularity family. Lasers recently qualified for the Fortnite World Cup Solo Finals in New York later this month.

“I’m happy that we can expand our entry into the SA esports scene, and I’m thrilled to have these two young hungry talents to represent our Singularity banner. I believe both players have great potential both individually and together as a unit, and I’m looking forward to help them develop their talent and achieve greatness together.
I want to personally thank Joao “Ment0s” for opening up the dialogue, and I’m looking forward to work with him in the future.”

Atle S. Stehouwer, CEO, Team Singularity.

“I started playing Fortnite in the end of season 2, when the game was starting to get popularity, I started playing it because it was fun and a de-stressing time for me, I still love the game even with everything that has been happening about changes in game. I started my “pro career” really by fun, because normal games weren’t fun enough anymore, so I started playing scrims and giving more time and attention to the game, started watching more pro players and when the tournaments came, I was ready.
It feels really great to join a org that’s international and big in the scenario, Singularity seems to put a lot of time and effort into making players grow in their careers, SNG has a lot of teams which make them have a lot of experience with esports in general, me and my duo are really happy to get this offer because it’s the starting point for us and hopefully the next months will be the best for both parties, and with Singularity hopefully I will complete my goal, that is making my name big on the scene and the game.
Qualifying for the World Cup was for sure the best feeling ever, it’s the perfect opportunity that I needed to get some recognition from everyone, the feeling of making it but yet not there. I’m currently making my schedule for training so there’s no excuses for me to not play for hours, and also trying to fit in the streams, to make sure the pressure is lower up to the EC, the expectations are always the best, and I will make sure I will give my best at the tournament, there is always the pressure factor and hopefully joining the team they can help me with it and making sure the gameplay is 100% until there!”

“I started playing Fortnite 2 weeks prior to the end of Season 3, I liked the game because apart from most of its mechanics, it also depends on a lot of strategy.
Since always I loved to compete, in season 5 my friend called me to play some games scrims, and after that I saw that it was super fun to play Fortnite competitively and so I decided to focus to the maximum on improving my gameplay! I feel happy to join the Team Singularity, I think nothing would be happening without Lasers, but the feeling is incredible, looking forward to what is to come and now more focused than ever!
My focus in the Fortnite scene is to remain among the best and evolving more and more!”

“They were really underrated here on SA, only a few pros knew them when the World Cup Qualifiers started. I noticed that Lasers was performing really well on scrims and WC matches and we were on a week with two spots for World Cup Solos, so I really started to follow him on the finals. He qualified, 1st place, nobody on the SA pro scene saw that coming! Then he became one of the most acknowledged players, he started to stream and got some viewers, and everyone noticed that their duo was really strong.
At that time, I was looking over the Brazilian Fortnite scene and realized that a lot of qualified players were free agents, and most of them told me they weren’t having a good time with Brazilian teams. A lot of them were underpaid, with extremely restrictive contracts on their backs, so everyone was running away from Brazilian teams.
I knew Team Singularity from CS:GO, a couple years ago, and noticed that they had an active Fortnite roster. I also knew about their expansion plan, so I started to connect the dots. When I was talking to Atle about signing a South American roster, he was strict with the requirement that we searched for a World Cup qualified player, so we could bring Team Singularity to the World Cup Finals. I talked to Lasers a couple days after and he told me that he got a lot of offers from teams around the world, but all of them were for him alone. I was looking their performance on scrims and they were really consistent as a duo, so I knew that they would be a great addition to Team Singularity, on the same time that it would be great for them to have a really professional team behind to guide your career over time!
Now I just have to thank Atle for providing that opportunity to them, I’m sure we will have extremely great results on World Cup Finals and we will spread the #SNGARMY all over South America!”
