Fortnite: Clix And Bizzle Find New Trios As Rosters Continue To Change

Avatar

Published

Rosters continue to change in the NA East region of competitive Fortnite.


It’s no secret that the professional scene is not exactly thrilled about another solo Fortnite Champion Series tournament. The FNCS Invitational last season was arguably the worst-received despite the $2 million prize pool. After said Invitational, the team behind competitive Fortnite announced that Chapter 2 – Season 3 would focus on solos for the fifth Fortnite Champion Series.

However, players had something to be excited about as somewhat of a consolation. The sixth Fortnite Champion Series will return to its roots as a trio competition. Pro players were undoubtedly more excited than ever, considering how entertaining Season X was from a competitive standpoint. Trios Cash Cups have returned in Chapter 2 – Season 3, which has ignited a fire in the NA East scene.

Trios formed quickly, including the Season X Champions ZexRow, MackWood and Calc, and some other outstanding trios followed suit. FaZe Bizzle, NRG Clix and TSM Commandment were one of the standout teams. All three players found success before Chapter 2 – Season 3. Another notable trio of Chap, Av and NRG Edgey seemed promising. However, neither of these two teams would last. A lot has taken place over the last two weeks as players look to regroup with entirely new teammates.

Dubs and Megga Add Bizzle

Fortnite World Cup contenders Dubs and Megga collected fellow FaZe Clan player Bizzle after he parted ways with Clix and Commandment. It was a bad night of pro scrims that led Bizzle to the announcement, which he explained in a Twitlonger. The former Secret Skirmish winner joins the Chapter 2 – Season 2 FNCS runners-up Dubs and Megga in what should be an outstanding combination. The odd man out in this scenario is Team Kungarna’s Assault, who took second place in the recent FNCS Invitational. FaZe Clan surely is excited to see three of its roster members combine as they look to dominate NA East Cash Cups.

Clix x Assault x Blakeps

After seeing former Ghost Gaming teammate Bizzle replace him, Assault became one of the top options for duos looking for one. Enter Clix and Blakeps, who teamed together back in Chapter 2 – Season 1. This former duo found one another yet again after Clix’s old trio broke down. Blakeps had been teaming with Ceice and HighSky, but Blakeps was not willing to pass up the opportunity to play with Clix again in a competitive setting. The addition of Assault makes this a formidable trio in the paper, but scrims and tournament results will prove their worth.

Cented Moves Back East Joining Commandment and Edgey

Cented of Team Liquid has been bouncing around from NA West to NA East since the beginning of Chapter 2 – Season 2. He moved east with duo partner NRG Edgey to compete for a significantly higher prize pool. The two took ninth in Chapter 2 – Season 2’s FNCS before Cented moved back to NA West. Edgey stayed east, joining fourth place FNCS finishers Chap and Av. These three played well in trio scrims, but Cented’s move back east drew Edgey away from Chap and Av. The ninth place duo added Team SoloMid’s Commandment, the final shoe to after parting ways with Clix and Bizzle.

Chap and Av Split

Edgey’s departure forced the fourth place FNCS duo of Chap and Av to split. Considering their success since the beginning of Chapter 2 – Season 2, this was a surprising outcome. Chap supposedly has a trio lined up already, whereas Av is still in search of one. A Reddit user seems to think that Chap will be teaming with Ajerrs and Ferrrnando after former Team Liquid teammate Vivid leaked some hints. It may be a stretch, but it’s a theory nonetheless.

Trios Left Standing

  • Tfue, innocents and Scoped
  • Bugha, Avery and Jamper
  • Zayt, Saf and Stretch
  • ZexRow, MackWood and Calc
  • Khanada, Kreo and Bucke

Despite the numerous roster changes, we have some premiere teams left standing. Tfue seems content with “cracked” controller players innocents and Scoped. Bugha and Avery have taken issue with one another time and time again, but there’s no doubt about this trio’s success thus far. Duo FNCS Champions Zayt and Saf, along with Stretch have been arguably the best trio after their win in the recent Lachlan Trios Cup. Season X Champs ZexRow, MackWood and Calc will remain a trio as will Khanada, Kreo and Bucke.

It’s essential always to temper expectations in the competitive Fortnite scene. Rosters change without notice daily even after a few missteps in scrims. Nonetheless, we can expect the professional stage to continue focusing on trios for the time being. With all the drama unfolding, trio tournaments will be exciting to watch in Chapter 2 – Season 3.

Where to Find the Electirizer and Magmarizer in Pokémon Sword and Shield’s The Crown Tundra expansion

Avatar

Published

on

With all of the Pokémon being added into Sword and Shield for the first time in The Crown Tundra expansion, there are several items that have also been added to help players complete their Pokédex. 

Two of the more important items are the Electirizer and Magmarizer, which are used to evolve Electabuzz and Magmar into their final forms, Electivire and Magmortar respectively. 

You won’t need to look very hard for either item, as they are readily available in the overworld with no RNG involved. Simply embark into the tundra and you should be able to grab both relatively quickly. 

The Electirizer is the easier of the two to find, as it is just sitting next to a tree in Giant’s Bed, right near the slope heading down into the Old Cemetary. The quickest way to locate it is actually heading up that same slope and looking to your left when you see the location change. 

As for the Magmarizer, it is located in the Tunnel to the Top, one of the northernmost areas on the entire map. It is a maze in there, but if you head through enough of the windy tunnels, you will eventually grab it along with several other useful items hidden within. 

Unlike in previous generations, you don’t need to solely rely on these items to obtain the two powerhouses since they can both appear in Max Raid Battles and as Special Overworld encounters around the tundra. They are still low percentage encounters, but that still could be faster than finding both items, capturing or training up and Electabuzz and Magmar, and then trading them with a friend to trigger the evolutions.

How to get Electabuzz and Electivire in Pokémon Sword and Shield’s The Crown Tundra expansion

Avatar

Published

on

Several of the most popular evolution lines have been added into Pokémon Sword and Shield as part of The Crown Tundra expansion, meaning there are a lot of trainers trying to fill up their Pokédexes with old friends. 

One of the more polarizing Pokémon that made its return is Electabuzz, along with its evolution Electivire, and pre-evo Elekid. 

Much like with Rhyperior in the base versions of Sword and Shield, it is possible to get both the middle evolution and final form without going through the original methods. Meaning you can capture both Electabuzz and Electivire in the wild without needing to find a trading partner or an Electirizer.

Electabuzz is a pretty common encounter if you look in the right areas, though it will only appear during a Thunderstorm. Electivire will be a lot harder to find, but there are a few places where it spawns as a Special Overworld encounter, also only in a Thunderstorm. 

You can also find both evolutions in Max Raid Battles in most of the same areas. 

Here is where you can find both Electabuzz and Electivire in the wild and Max Raid Battles.

  • Electabuzz
    • Wild: Giant’s Bed, Old Cemetery, Giant’s Foot, Frigid Sea, Three-Point Pass, Ballimere Lake
    • Raids: Frostpoint Field, Giant’s Bed, Frigid Sea, Three-Point Pass, Ballimere Lake, Dynamax Adventures
  • Electivire
    • Wild: Giant’s Bed, Frigid Sea, Three-Point Pass, Ballimere Lake
    • Raids: Frostpoint Field, Giant’s Bed, Frigid Sea, Three-Point Pass, Ballimere Lake

Cloud9 terminate contracts of JT, motm, Sonic, T.c

Cloud9 have terminated the contracts of Ian “⁠motm⁠” Hardy, Johnny “⁠JT⁠” Theodosiou, Aran “⁠Sonic⁠” Groesbeek, and coach Tiaan “⁠T.c⁠” Coertzen after they were found to be in violation of the company’s COVID-19 policy, according to Dust2.us and Rush B Media.

The team had previously received written and verbal warnings after violating the company’s policy by inviting guests over to the Cloud9 team house, and have now had their contracts terminated due to a second offence of the same clause.

“The details that really matter is this was the second offence of unauthorized guests coming into Cloud9 property after being told that this is not all acceptable,” Cloud9 CEO Jack Etienne said in a statement to the two publications. “The reason it is not acceptable is because you are putting our staff at risk.”

The four former Cloud9 members have had their contracts terminated

The four members were asked to move out of the team house following the termination of their contracts, with Cloud9 finding and paying for new accommodations through Monday, October 26. The organisation also offered to move the players’ belongings to their new accommodations, or work with them on how to proceed.

Notably, Josh “⁠oSee⁠” Ohm is not included among the players who had their contracts terminated as he does not live at the team house, leaving him as the sole remaining contracted player of the former Cloud9 roster.

The South African trio will need to find a new organisation to call home post-haste if they wish to remain in the United States as their P1-visas are set to expire in 30 days, after which they would be required to return to their home country. Additionally, JT and motm have announced their free agency since the publication of the story.

The quartet of members who had their contracts terminated are:

South Africa Johnny “⁠JT⁠” Theodosiou
South Africa Aran “⁠Sonic⁠” Groesbeek
United States Ian “⁠motm⁠” Hardy

South Africa Tiaan “⁠T.c⁠” Coertzen (coach)
