Star Fortnite player mitr0, who has earned countless fans over the years, has officially announced a departure from Team Liquid and the entire Fortnite competitive scene. The stunning move has already seen hundreds of replies, mainly full of support for the star’s future.

mitr0 quickly thanked the organization for their support over his illustrious career. mitr0 boasts a staggering 1 million followers on Twitter, and nearly as much on Instagram, winning over fans with a personable attitude and countless wins.

And yesterday, Team Liquid announced they’d be allowing their Apex Legends team to seek out new representation, which fans have assumed is due to EA:
Regardless of Team Liquid’s troubles, the organization will surely be fine overall. In the meantime, fans can at least look forward to mitr0’s next career move, and he’ll likely continue regular content.
