OpTic Gaming’s Fortnite Battle Royale star, Robert ‘WizKay’ Carmen Simone, fell foul of one of the most annoying deaths in history while playing in the 2 vs. 2 CMG PC tournament.

The Fortnite Battle Royale hype train shows no sign of slowing down any time soon and the competitive scene is already beginning to blow up despite the lack of custom/private matches.

One player that has already landed himself a spot on one of the biggest and best esports organizations on earth it OpTic Gaming’s WizKay, but that didn’t stop him from dying in the worst possible way during a $400 tournament in the early hours of June 25th.

Playing alongside Josh ‘JerKH26’ Riley in the 2 vs. 2 CMG tournament, WizKay made it all of the way to the semifinals but had to wait an hour and a half to play it.

Once the match finally started, WizKay fell foul of one of the most annoying tricks in the entire game after he dropped into a basement full of pyramid roofs.

WizKay was then ambushed by one player after another as a full squad began to emerge from underneath the various pyramids. Despite knocking two opponents he was eventually dropped and he was quite clearly not happy about the situation!

WizKay and JerKH26 would go on to lose the semifinal match and the death to the pyramid squad clearly weighed heavily on the OpTic player’s mind.

Taking to Twitter after the game, WizKay shared the clip along with the caption “Waited an hour and a half for my semi finals round and this is how I lose……”

He also responded to a comment from Thiefs, saying that he wasn’t sure how he didn’t use his monitor as a punching bag, and we have to say that we were thinking the same thing!
