After the success of the Fortite Championship Series in Season 10, Epic Games decided to switch things up ahead of Chapter 2 – giving their popular battle royale a better road map for competitive play and changing the format.
The previous season saw players compete in solos, duos, and trios events, but for Chapter 2, the focus has moved to squads – meaning players have had to assemble four-player teams. A number of teams have already been confirmed, including Bugha’s initial line-up, but he appears to be in need of a change of teammates before the competition gets underway.
The Fortnite World Cup winner had been down as playing alongside Stretched, Zayt, and Saf – with the squad practicing together against other professional squads – but Bugha will be taking his own path moving forward.
On October 21, the Fortnite star tweeted out that he was now on the lookout for a team as a solo player, giving him a clean break from his original line-up. However, anyone that wants to pick the highly-talented Sentiels professional up would have to be “comfortable with streaming.”

While plenty of fans were shocked at the move, a number of Bugha’s fellow Fortnite pros couldn’t help but pull out some jokes.
FaZe Clan’s Nate ‘Nate Hill’ Hill jokingly asked the 16-year-old about his best placements, while Team SoloMid’s Slappie wanted to know about his earnings before picking him up.

Of course, with the annoucement of a top-class player like Bugha hitting the open market for the squads event, it could throw other teams’ plans into jeopardy.
It remains to be seen who’ll be dropping out of the battle bus with moving forward, but they’ll have to be quick considering the warm-up event kicks off on October 25.
