Planet Oasis, a 2 billion dollar amusement park twice the size of Disneyland, is coming to Columbus, Ohio.

Although it will feature the traditional attractions like food, rides and shopping, Planet Oasis will have a massive esports arena on site.

The Call of Duty World League is currently taking place at the MLG Arena, a 14,000 square foot complex in Columbus. That may soon change as the Planet Oasis Esports Arena will be 30,000 square feet.

The esports plans for this park do not stop at a building however, as Planet Oasis plans to have their own team and even their own esports league.

At this time, information is not known about what games their team will compete in or how the Planet Oasis league will be set up.

The owners of Planet Oasis may not know what direction their esports plans will go either, as it was a very small portion of their launch video. At one point, the video humorously cuts from esports to a butterfly exhibit.

Also of interest to gamers will be an area to experience VR and AR games.

The complete list of planned attractions is below.

  • Rollercoasters and rides
  • Skate and BMX park
  • Wave pool for surfing
  • Climbing walls
  • Indoor Skydiving
  • Medieval Times
  • VR and AR games
  • 30,000 sq ft. esports arena with team and league
  • A butterfly museum
  • 25-story skywheel
  • electric gokarts
  • Bowling
  • Laser Tag
  • Virtual Golf
  • 20-acre saltwater lake with beaches

The developers chose Ohio for the location of Planet Oasis for a the same reason Activison is holding the Call of Duty Championships there, over 100 million people live within a 6 hour drive and there are numerous college campuses nearby.

Fortnite World Cup winner Aqua allegedly banned for FNCS stream-sniping

Fortnite World Cup champion and Season 4 FNCS competitor, David ‘aqua’ Wang has been accused of stream-sniping and subsequently been punished by an alleged ban by Epic Games.

At 17 years old, aqua represented his home country of Austria to the fullest by winning the 2019 Fortnite World Cup’s Duos event with Norway’s Emil ‘Nyhrox’ Bergquist. With a smooth $1.5 million earned from the World Cup, he’s since signed with Cooler Esport and continued to win competitions across Europe.

Most recently, aqua’s trio (with Rezon and Noahreyli) have been participating in FNCS Europe and, following the Week 3 semis, have been accused of stream-sniping another popular trio: Benjy ‘Benjyfishy’ Fish, Martin ‘MrSavage’ Andersen, and Kevin ‘LeTsHe’ Fedjuschkin.

Although fans initially deemed aqua’s behavior suspicious, things quickly escalated. With Benjyfishy’s team unable to qualify for the Week 3 finals and the discovery that aqua was watching MrSavage’s stream during the competition, the controversy has spiraled.

Following condemnations of the World Cup winner’s team, rumors began circulating that aqua, Rezon, and Noahreyli had been banned by Epic Games from participating past the first match of the Finals. 

Although many fans were delighted to hear the news, it was never officially legitimized and has since been made even more unclear by responses from some of the involved parties.

After the rumor mill buzzed with the reports that aqua’s team was banned from competing, he took to Twitter and gave a concise clarification denying those allegations: “We are not banned, we just don’t wanna play. It’s boring without early fighting Benjy.”

Given the difficulty inherent to confirming someone was in fact stream-sniping and didn’t coincidentally run into a fellow streamer, many believe it is unlikely that the World Cup winner has actually been exiled from the competition.

Additionally, some have noted that bans typically result in removal from the leaderboard, something that aqua’s team has not been hit with.

 

As for how the players are handling it, aqua and Benjyfishy have simply joked about the incident for hours. Neither side appears to be nearly as angry as some fans have been, instead, laughing at the drama and sharing memes.

 

While whatever’s going on behind the scenes may remain unclear, all players involved are more than good enough to qualify for the Season 4 FNCS Finals at some point, if they haven’t already, so it seems that no one’s really that bothered by the situation, ban or no ban.

We will continue to update this article with more details as they become available.
