Timothy ‘Bizzle’ Miller, professional Fortnite player for FaZe Clan, has hit out at the building battle royale as a “joke” and a “shambles”, as he confirms the split of his long-time professional trio. 

Trios has grown to be the main competitive mode for Fortnite, meaning the world’s best pro players have been doing their best to find players whom they click with. Bizzle, alongside Clix and Commandment, formed one of the strongest trios in the world, at least on paper.

In reality, Season 3 struggles have plagued the trio, ultimately leading to the announcement of them going in separate directions. In Bizzle’s statement, he fired some shots at Fortnite itself, stating that the game is currently a “shambles”.

Rumors had swirled around Bizzle, Clix, and Commandment, with many considering the trio to be playing at a level less than the sum of their parts.

On July 10, the FaZe Clan star confirmed that the trio would be going their separate ways, explaining that the current state of Fortnite was a major factor in their decision.

“I think the reasoning for this is simply because the game is in complete shambles right now,” Bizzle said. “Before Season 3 we were dominating every single game and then when the new season came, the Shockwave Launcher disabled us from playing the way we were used to and crazy end game lag lead to a lot of thrown games.”

He also stated that Commandment signaled his intent to leave, which gave Bizzle the opportunity to team up with Dubs and Megga.

“Every competitive player knows how big of a joke this game is right now,” he continued, “but when every player wants to be the best and you aren’t winning games change is bound to happen.”

Despite Bizzle seeming reluctant to leave Clix, it seems there are no hard feelings between the two pros. Clix responded to the tweet in a highly complementary fashion, describing Bizzle as “the best player” he has ever played with.

As Clix says, there is the potential to reunite with Bizzle in the future but, for now, you will be able to find the FaZe Clan star playing alongside Dubs and Megga.

Clix, as of the publication of this article, has not commented publicly on whom he will be playing alongside.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.

With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.

As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
