Fortnite: Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf in Search of New Squad

After the Season X Fortnite Champion Series concluded, Epic Games announced that squads would be the primary focus moving forward. To date, we have seen high-level competition in solos, duos, trios and now squads. We’ve seen many squads form together in the period between the end of Season X and the introduction of Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 1. One of the said squads saw the pair of Kyle “SEN Bugha” GIersdorf and Liquid Stretch join forces with the standout duo of Williams “NRG Zayt” Aubin and Rocco “Ghost Saf” Morales. On paper, this squad stood alone atop the competitive landscape; however, this all is coming to an end.

Giersdorf took to Twitter late on Monday, October 21st, with a statement in regards to his current situation. History is an indicator that Aubin is not fond of competing alongside those who lean in favor of streaming over a strictly competitive approach. Although Giersdorf is a World Cup Champion, he maintains a streaming schedule that allows himself to interact with fans and followers alike. Both Morales and Aubin have strict rules about not streaming their competitive matches to uphold strategies and eliminate the possibility of encountering ‘griefers.’ It is also odd to see Stretch opt to stick with Aubin and Morales considering his recent history and success with Giersdorf. Regardless, Giersdorf now must shift gears and go in search of a new squad that will be more accepting of his streaming habits.

Competitive Differences

It was hard to imagine that this squad would work out considering that the players operate on two different wavelengths in terms of competition. Giersdorf has never shied away from content, especially considering the recognition he gained from the Fortnite World Cup victory. This win elevated him to the level of some other popular streamers solely due to the accomplishment. Regardless of his win at the World Cup, Giersdorf still remains one of the best mechanical players in all of Fortnite. He will not have any trouble finding a squad because of his skillset. It will be interesting to see if an already established squad will free up one spot to make room for Giersdorf. He could find himself with the likes of Jake “Liquid Poach” Brumleve, Christian “Ghost Snood” Hastie and Jordan “LZR Crimz” Herzog after their recent parting of ways with Michael “Hogman” Hogman.

The Fortnite World Cup Solos Champion will likely take his time settling on a new squad. There’s no shortage of options for any solo player seeing as the new Fortnite Champion Series format does not force you to qualify with only one team. Only time will tell at this point as neither Giersdorf nor his former teammates have commented since the initial Tweet. There are a lot of professional solo players who are seeking a squad to compete alongside in the upcoming FNCS season.
