Two of the world’s best Fortnite players, Timothy ‘Bizzle’ Miller and Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad, have confirmed their respective departures from organization Ghost Gaming – within an hour of one another. 

Nearly every competitive Fortnite fan will be familiar with the names of Aydan and Bizzle. The former has become known as one of the world’s best controller players, while Bizzle managed to qualify for the Fortnite World Cup multiple times, including once without using guns.

Recently, however, Aydan has even proved his talent on other titles, winning the $100k Twitch Rivals Warzone tournament alongside members of CoD pro team Atlanta FaZe. On April 3, the all-round gaming star announced his departure from Ghost Gaming, the organisation with which he has made his name in esports.

Ghost have previously entered teams in CoD, Fortnite and Rocket League.

“I am officially parting ways with Ghost Gaming on good terms,” he said. “Ghost was the first and only organization I’ve been on and I’ve learned so much over the last 2 years.”

Since joining Ghost Gaming in the summer of 2018, Aydan’s gaming career has gone from strength to strength. Originally starting as a Call of Duty streamer, the release of Epic Games’ Fortnite saw Aydan excel as one of the world’s best controller players. He placed 37th in the duos section of 2019’s Fortnite World Cup and previously held the world record for most kills in a console Solo match.  

The 20-year-old also thanked all of Ghost’s key staff and concluded by saying that he is “open” to offers from other organizations. 

Less than an hour later, also on April 3, Bizzle announced his departure from Ghost Gaming in a similar message.

“I have mutually parted ways with Ghost Gaming,” he announced. “Ghost was my first org and the true start to my gaming career, from Pax West to Dreamhack they have been there for me and there are a lot of people I want to thank. I also wish Ghost the best of luck on its next chapter.”

He also thanked many of Ghost’s hierarchy, and confirmed he is excited to join a new organization. 

As a result of the near-simultaneous departures, it’s fair to assume that Ghost Gaming will be looking to announce new content creators soon.

Given the talents both men have displayed in the past couple of years, we can also expect them to be announcing new organizations in the very near future.

CoD streamers slam Warzone star WarsZ for “pathetic” K/D tanking

Call of Duty: Warzone stars continue to call each other out – this time Tommey is joined by HusKerrs and others in critiquing multi-event champion, WarsZ, for manipulating tournament Kill-Death Ratio (K/D) caps by tanking his account.

With more and more money being piled into Warzone tournaments, the stakes are higher than ever and competitors are understandably adamant about integrity. Many of these competitions have turned to K/D caps, as a way to limit good players from forming super squads that’ll end up dominating the opposition.

Following earlier condemnations from top streamers like NICKMERCS and Aydan about others gaming the K/D cap limits, Tommey has exposed WarsZ in particular for allegedly partaking in the unfair practice.

Tommey, a former Call of Duty League player and multi-time Warzone champion, did not hesitate to single out WarsZ for a suspicious drop in his kill-death ration just ahead of this week’s leg of the $210,000 Vikkstar Warzone Showdown.

Although the caps have been instituted in tournaments to provide for better parity among teams, they can also be manipulated by purposefully delivering uncharacteristically poor performances.

WarsZ has won six Warzone championships across different tournaments, so Tommey’s linked image of the streamer having double-digit zero-kill matches in the past few days is particularly damning.

“People seem to be scared of the repercussions but I’m fed up with the bulls**t,” Tommey tweeted, tagging the rival competitor directly while calling the alleged tanking “pathetic.”

As for WarsZ’s response, it was not well-received. Suggesting that this notable drop in K/D was spurred by having his “girl” play on his account, a variety of notable Warzone competitors slammed the excuse. Among those wast renowned multi-time champion, HusKerrs, who replied simply, “Brother, c’mon now… nobody is buying that.”

Popular streamer DougisRaw also chimed in, mocking the excuse for how obviously the screenshot goes against the idea of letting an inexperienced player drop in for some games: “Damn, your girl plays solo squads. She’s cracked.”

 

While none of the allegations can be proven, many seem dissatisfied with WarsZ’s excuse and believes it is unfair to competitors like Jukeyz and others who were unable to snag tournament spots because of their high K/D.

It must be noted, as Tommey mentioned in the tweet above, that Vikkstar’s tournament technically doesn’t prohibit such a tactic, so while WarsZ isn’t breaking any rules, it’s fair to say that the rest of the big-name competitors don’t think too highly of it.

It remains to be seen if other tournaments will begin following NICKMERCS in the way he runs his MFAM Gauntlets, monitoring participants’ past in-game performances to make sure that they’re not trying to circumvent the K/D cap.
