Who are the founding members of Team Philthy and what inspired them to start their own team?
Hailgunner is the current owner/founder of Team Philthy. I got inspired to create this team after one of my favorite streamers @moneyfn joined a team about 5 months ago.

Where are the founding members from and how did you all first meet?
Our first members were from playground fill, which is how we first met.

When was the team founded?
Team Philthy was founded on May 7th, 2019.

How do all the members stay up to date with team activity?
We stay up to date by, playing zone wars together, talking in our group chats, and story share all recent posts of each other.

How does Philthy recruit?
We recruit from our #philthyrc, we also recruit from our west zone wars hosted everyday.

 Does the team have any sponsors?
At the moment we don’t have any sponsors, we are planning on large future sponsorships soon.

What are some of the next steps for the organization?
We are trying to grow on other social platforms soon.

What was the hardest part of getting the team to where it is now?
It took a long time to get to this point. It is consistently grinding for the best of your team.

What do you like/dislike most about what you do?
The most like thing I do personally is playing zone wars with grinders. The most disliked thing I get is hate.

What are your go-to sources for content inspiration?
My go-to inspiration for what to post is YouTube, you can learn so much but you can also waste so much time using it.

What piece of content are you most proud of?
I am proud of our first post on our page. It took about 5 hours to think and make our first recruitment challenge.

What was your first post?
My first upload on Philthy was the recruitment challenge. My first upload on my personal Instagram (@hailgunner) the original was a black screen with the caption of “here we go”

What do you look for in potential players?
I look for being able to make a fast montage. This means many clips, a very fast song. These combinations make a player stand out.

Favourite Fortnite season and why?
My favorite season was season 5. In that season I became a very above-average player. Grinding our 5+ hours a day.

Who is the biggest player you’ve eliminated?
I have killed TSM Daequan in season 4.
