Circa eSports is diving into Injustice 2 with the signing of Christian "Forever King" Quiles.

Forever King has long been considered a Top 5 player for both Mortal Kombat X and Injustice: Gods Among Us. His time competing in the latter game was incredibly successful and he placed in the Top 5 of seven major tournaments between 2015 and 2016. Known for his Batman play, he'll look to replicate that success with the character's return in the new iteration of Injustice 2. For Mortal Kombat X, Forever King had his best competitive year in 2015 when he finished with three first place finishes at The Fall Classic, Summer Jam 9 and Youmacon.

"Injustice was my best game and Injustice 2 is so similar to the original that my skill will translate over," Quiles told ESPN. "I was the best Batman player in Injustice and he plays nearly the same in the sequel, but I will pick up new characters like Black Canary."

Prior to Circa eSports, Forever King was part of a player-based group, Yomi Gaming.

"He was my first choice," Brandon "TuboWare" Brockman, fighting game community manager of Circa eSports, told ESPN. "We really believe in his ability. He's young and I see a lot of potential in him. It's no secret that Warner Brothers will invest money [in] its latest game and we wanted to look at the future."

"Circa eSports is very excited to have Forever King a part of the fighting division," said Marc Leikach, the Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Circa eSports. "Forever King will be a great addition to the team due to his skill and personality in Injustice and Mortal Kombat. We can't wait to see what he does at his first event, Combo Breaker."
