It has been quite a while since some major drama unfolded in the Fortnite competitive scene. However, after a long time of comparative silence, the FN competitive scene has erupted with some rather sudden news.

The eSports organization TSM recently announced that it has parted ways with Leon “Khanada” Khim, a key player in its Fortnite roster. The organization announced this rather abruptly on Twitter earlier today.

Khanada has been a key part of the organization’s FN roster since earlier this year and was the winner of the FN Champion Series Season X last year as well. With quite a bright ongoing career, both personally and as a part of the TSM roster, exactly what went wrong with the 16-year-old FN pro?

Can Khanada’s Twitch ban be the reason TSM dropped him from the Fortnite roster?

Now, this is something that many fans have been speculating on Twitter as well as the FN Competitive dedicated subreddit. Khanada recently received a Twitch ban a couple of months ago due to misconduct. The 16-year-old pro allegedly made violent threats to another player on stream.

Khanada is someone who harshly criticizes his opponents, but this has never been on a level that warranted a ban. As of now, Twitch hasn’t provided a further explanation for the ban, and neither did it provide any clip or video citing the instance.

Now, since streaming forms an integral part of any eSports organization, the natural explanation for TSM dropping Khanada seems to be the fact that he will not be able to stream anymore.

Although the exact reason for TSM’s decision is unknown, fans have drawn their own conclusions and some are suggesting that the organization could have helped in rectifying the situation rather than dropping him. All the more reason for fans to draw the conclusion because he has been in really great form in the game.

Hopefully, TSM will reveal further details about this. Nonetheless, Khanada had a good run with the organization.
