NRG continues to bolster its Apex Legends roster signing Brandon “Ace” Winn.
A third player has been added to NRG esports Apex Legends roster. Ace joins KingRichard and superstar Dizzy to complete NRG’s first Apex Legends squad.
NRG made headlines as one of the first esport organizations to sign an Apex Legends player, when they locked up Coby Meadows just a week after the game’s release. Although NRG were fast with Dizzy and KingRichard, they had yet to decide on any new player additions. Although Ace is officially NRG’s third Apex Legends pro, there is no confirmation if Ace will be paired with Dizzy during tournaments or events.
NRG would like to announce the next Apex ACE up our sleeve…

Just like Dizzy and many of the best Apex Legends players, Ace’s comes from a CS background. His last appearance was with his former team eUnited on the ESL pro league circuit.
Ace moved his content over to Apex Legends one week after the game was released. Prior to Apex Legends, Ace strictly streamed CS:GO. Contrary to Dizzy and KingRichard, Ace has a much more relaxed approach to his streams. The soft spoken pro’s best asset is clearly his game IQ. NRG seems to know how to recruit the right players at the right time. They did not waste any time making their first move when signing Dizzy, as there would be no chance he would still be a free agent. Just like Dizzy was before signing, Ace is not a mainstream name. Before his NRG signing, his Twitch channel averaged around 75 viewers per stream. One has to expect this number to skyrocket as his popularity is set to soar playing for one of the most popular Apex Legends organizations.
