The Clix and Cohen Connection

Reigning champions Cody ‘Clix’ Conrod and NFL running back Tarik Cohen joined forces for the second year in a row along with community player ‘Xacial’ to form ‘The Shotties’. Clix led from the front engaging in firefights first and controlling communications with his team. He got 5 of his team’s 8 kills to clutch a victory royale in game 1 itself. This put them at number 1 with 34 points after game 1.

The trio faced a quick exit from game 2 courtesy of a quick scope elimination of Clix by streamer Nate Hill. They received 0 points from this game. Although there were some close calls, Clix’s tactical brilliance got them a second Fortnite victory royale. Clix was the kill machine in this game as well bagging 7 of his teams 9 eliminations putting them at 70 points after 3 games.

Game 4 saw Clix left as the last man standing from his team with 40 players left. Tarik Cohens motivating words “Clutch it out homeboy, same as last year” definitely pushed Clix as he went on to get 6 eliminations and place 4th. These efforts were adequate to secure Clix and Tarik their back-to-back streamer bowls.
