Epic Games’ Fortnite could stand to lose a key player

Clix’s reaction to the news was quite unsettling, as the warning infuriated him. He was unhappy with Epic Games’ approach and also stated that they never took similar action when he faced stream snipers. He could not believe that the game he loves so much is targeting him specifically. 

The streamer even stated that he cannot deal with the game anymore and he definitely going to switch games.

” Nevermind, dude I get some much ** happen to me and I still play this game that is crazy. I think I am actually gonna play Valorant or Siege. might play Valorant, I am not sure, I see Bugha play that **** and I am like, full respect to Bugha, I love that **** he is my trio, but I fall asleep. I am down to play Warzone with Symfuhny cause he always plays.”

Clix also spoke about his removal from the leaderboard after merely leaving the game for 2 weeks.
