The SXSW Gaming lineup is slowing growing as we approach the lengthy Austin-based festival. Today, it was announced a brand new panel would be added as Jordan “n0thing” Gilbert from Cloud9 will be joining the panel lineup. Below are some of the details from the panel description, as it appears those in attendance will be getting one of the biggest Q&A sessions with an esports pro that the festival has ever had. Gilbert’s panel will join the growing roster that includes Ashley Jenkins from Rooster Teeth’s The Know, Overwatch League commissioner Nate Nanzer to speak on the formation of the league and its status, and a roundtable with Richard Garriott, Koji Igarashi, and Warren Spector.
Gilbert has more tournament wins than any active North American player and has seen a lot of his success with one of the biggest esports organizations in esports, Cloud9. Today, Jordan remains an inactive player on Cloud9 and can be found creating content on YouTube or live streaming on Twitch.
Gilbert will be interviewed by Duncan McMonagle, GM of DBLTAP and SVP at Minute Media. The pair will touch on Gilbert’s stories from life as a pro gamer, the community, fans and the unique opportunities and challenges the world of gaming creates.
