Former Call of Duty coach and professional gamer Brice Faccento announced the creation of his new talent agency with esport industry professional Andrew Drake. Bad Moon Talent will focus on representing players and industry talents in the best possible way within the Overwatch, Call of Duty, Fortnite, and other professional scenes.
Bad Moon Talent is a big step forward for the esports industry as it continues to evolve year after year. Traditional sport athletes typically rely on agents to get them the best contracts, sponsors, and an array of other benefits that not only make their jobs easier, but their reach as professional athletes larger. Bad Moon Talent will be looking to do the same within the esports scene.
A lot of these professional esports players are on the younger side, and to have agents hopefully looking out for their best interest is beneficial to them as they continue to grow as a person in the crazy esports climate.
Andrew Drake has extensive experience in the esports industry with Activision, Blizzard, and Major League Gaming. He helped contribute to the launches of the Call of Duty World League (not to be confused with Call of Duty League) and the innovative Overwatch League. His expertise behind the scenes of these esports leagues will prove valuable to his clients going forward.
Brice Faccento is a veteran presence in the professional Call of Duty scene both as a player and a coach. He played on teams such as Echo Fox and Rise Nation before going on to become the head coach of eUnited. His expertise helped eUnited to victories in the Call of Duty World League Playoffs and helped them become the Call of Duty World League Champions. His experience within the esports scene as a player and coach will go a long way as Bad Moon Talent looks to foster strong relationships with its players going forward.
The future is now within the esports industry. With the announcement of Bad Moon Talent, the agency hopes to help further propel the industry to even greater heights. The potential of esports continues to grow each year and as more opportunities get added every moment, there is no telling where it can go going forward.
