It seems the world is starting to take esports seriously with each passing day. Forbes released its 30 Under 30 list for Europe and to no one’s surprise, there was a healthy representation from the esports and gaming sphere in the list.
Leading the way in Esports is Primary AWPer for Astralis, Nicolai ‘device’ Reedtz with fellow Scandinavian star Olof ‘olofmeister’ Kajbjer, who currently plays for FAZE Clan also joining him on the list.
While that is about it for CSGO, there were representations from Rainbow Six Siege and League of Legends. G2 Esports star Marcin ‘Jankos’ Jankowski is a jungler for the organisation in League of Legends and is widely recognised as one of the best players in the said role.
Rainbow Six Siege professional Niclas ‘Pengu’ Mouritzen, who also represents G2 Esports, made it onto the list, which was judged by a panel that included back-to-back and two-time TI winner Johan ‘n0tail’ Sundstein, who is the co-founder of Team OG along with G2 Esports co-founder Carlos ‘ocelote’ Rodriguez, both of whom were named in the class of 2019 by Forbes.
