FaZe Clan have signed Tim ‘Bizzle’ Miller as the newest member of their Fortnite team, marking yet another major addition to the organization in 2020.

As it stands, FaZe is loaded to the brim with exceptional talent in the battle royale, including the likes of Nate Hill, Kyle ‘Mongraal’ Jackson, Soleil ‘Ewok’ Wheeler, and Trevor ‘Funk’ Siegler, just to name a few.

But the new signee is an instant crowning jewel in FaZe’s Fortnite empire, now that he’s joined the most talked about org in the world.

Bizzle “mutually parted ways” with his previous org Ghost Gaming on April 4, along with then-teammate and similar Fortnite All-Star ‘Aydan’ Conrad.

After FaZe announced the latest signing, Bizzle said that his new org contacted him “five minutes after” leaving Ghost.

Whether that’s an exaggeration or not is unclear, but it wouldn’t be surprising for FaZe – or any org for that matter – to move in on what was one of the hottest free agents in the Fortnite landscape.

Bizzle was on a tear at the tail-end of 2019, and that’s not including his top-30 finish at the inaugural World Cup Solo Finals. Though he didn’t place where he wanted to at the premier event, his performances lit up the matches throughout the World Cup.

FaZe’s montage for Bizzle highlighted the pro’s accolades including having the most top 5 finishes as well as the most match wins on LAN in Fortnite’s history.

His success has amounted to a whopping $593,125 total earnings from competing, according to Esports Earnings – a number he’ll now be looking to dwarf with his new team.

The Fortnite pro is no stranger to the allure and expectations that normally follow a FaZe member. He’s an incredibly accomplished competitor and an entertaining streamer; a natural fit to the world-renown org.

Bizzle joins Swagg as the latest members to sign with FaZe in recent weeks, as the content kings invest in more talent across their brand.

FaZe is only the second gaming org that Bizzle has been a part of and he’ll undoubtedly look to make an impact in the 2020 Fortnite competitive season.

Epic Games have announced more details about the upcoming FNCS tournament for Fortnite Season 5, including some of the Twitch drops players will be able to get their hands on by watching the streams and the schedule of events. 

If you’ve been wondering what incentives you might be getting to watch the upcoming FNCS Season 5 tournament then you’re questions have finally been answered.

With the tournament only a couple days away, Epic has gone ahead and revealed some cool new drops that players will be able to get their hands on during the event, including some sprays, a loading screen, and more, simply by tuning into the tournament on Twitch.

Here’s how you can make sure that you’ll get the rewards.

Fortnite FNCS Season 5 Twitch drops

Epic Games
Epic has unveiled some loot that players will be able to get their hands on during the tournament.

Like most games nowadays, Epic Games is utilizing Twitch drops to give players an incentive to watch the FNCS Season 5 tournament. This means that, if you watch the tournament on various officially-supported streams that have drops enabled, you will be able to earn in-game items for Fortnite.

Some of them are a bit small like an FNCS spray and emoticon, but two of the more significant items is that of a special loading screen which features some of the characters featured in the Season 5 battle pass, as well as a cool, foam finger-style back bling.

All in all, it’s nothing too crazy, but it’s still a nice little reward for watching the tournament.

How to earn Twitch drops

Like any other Twitch drop, players will have to have their Twitch and Epic Games accounts linked before they can start earning their rewards. To do that, you’ll need to follow some simple steps, courtesy of the developers themselves.

  • Go to Epic Game’s official “Connected Accounts” page
  • Sign-in to your Epic Games account
  • Click on the “Connect” button under the Twitch tab
  • Click “Link your Account”
  • Sign-in to your Twitch account at the prompt
  • Select “Authorize”

After that, your Epic account and your Twitch account should be linked together and you’ll be able to earn items on drop-enabled streams. Once you get them, you should see them in a notification at the top of your Twitch page and they should appear in-game soon.

FNCS Season 5 streaming schedule

If you’re wondering the full streamable events, we have you covered. Epic says that they’ll be streaming the most “pivotal” stages of the competition, which only include the final rounds of the qualifiers, as well as the semi-finals and finals.

This means that, while qualifiers themselves will take place from Feb 4-7, Feb 11-14, and Feb 18-21 respectively, the only ones that will be streamed will be the final days on Feb 7, 11, and 21.

The full breakdown of times can be found below:

  • EU Region Broadcast
    • Start time: 1 PM EST
    • EU Live Coverage: 1:15 PM EST
    • Broadcast end: 4:30 PM EST
  • NA Region Broadcast
    • Start time: 5 PM EST
    • NAE Live Coverage: 5:15 PM EST
    • Break: 8:30 PM EST
    • NAW Live Coverage: 9:15 PM EST
    • Broadcast end: 12:20 AM EST

It’s important to remember that you watch either an official stream from Epic Games or a supported stream with drops enabled, otherwise you won’t get all the cool loot.

As more information comes out, like a change to the schedule or additions to the drops, we’ll keep this article updated.
