Brian "dkt" Flander to Gravitas Gaming

CALIFORNIA - ESports star Brian "dkt" Flander joins the Gravitas Gaming organization.

"I'm extremely excited to join some old friends on Gravitas Gaming. It was any easy decision for me to join up with GG, because I know how seriously the management takes pro gaming and I wanted to be a part of that," Flander said on Gravitas' website, www.gravitasgaming.com.

Gravitas Gaming has given word that Brian "dkt" Flander will now be playing and managing for their organization.

Brian Flander is most notable for being a professional FPS player; going pro in Quake, Counter-Strike 1.6, Unreal Tournament, and Doom 3. Most recently, Brian Flander was the General Manager of the CGS region one and world champion franchise, the Chicago Chimera. DKT will only be in a management role, however, for the time being.

"“When Brian approached me after the closing of CGS it seemed like a perfect fit we all know each other really well from being around the gaming world for so long and share many goals with one another for Gravitas. He knows a lot about the inner workings of gaming and his knowledge is something any franchise would value.” Corbin Crnkovic, the owner of Gravitas, had to say about the addition of Brian “DKT” Flander.

 

 

First off, what have you been up to these past couple months?
 
Once CGS ended, I got my old job back that I had prior to CGS. So, I was pretty fortunate to be able to just stay on my feet. Otherwise, I've been playing QuakeLive in my free time.

What exactly will your role be in Gravitas Gaming and what type of things will you be doing?

I'll be creating different ways for the community be involved with our players. I'm also hoping to help the team bring in more sponsors.

Does this mean we will be seeing dkt playing at any online or LAN competitions in the near future?

Yea, I'll be playing at QuakeCon for sure in August.

Why did you choose to join Gravitas over other organizations?


I used to be in Check-Six with all of the managers. They are all good friends and I know they are as dedicated to pro gaming as I am.

What are your goals for Gravitas Gaming and yourself for the future?
 
I'd like to become the premier team in North America. Obviously, we have a long ways to go, but it is possible with some hard work.

Thanks so much for sitting down with me I wish you and Gravitas the best of luck, any last words?
 
Thanks to Gravitas Gaming.
