Popular Call of Duty streamer Aydan Conrad has finally left Warzone in favour of Apex Legends. The streamer has made his issues with the Call of Duty battle royale known for quite some time, and just three weeks after the initial launch of Warzone Pacific and its new map Caldera, he's decided to take a break.

A Growing Trend

Aydan leaves Warzone for Apex Legends

High-profile Warzone streamers leaving the battle royale in favour of brighter pastures isn't something new. Every big streamer from NICKMERCS to Dr DisRespect have taken brief sabbaticals, and quite often Apex Legends is the replacement of choice. Despite recently losing the top spot of Warzone's highest-earning player, Aydan really cut his teeth in the Call of Duty scene, and his discontent for the title highlights the issues stemming from the current state of the game. 

To be clear, Aydan isn't done with Warzone. While he is enjoying coming to grips with the mechanics and meta of Apex Legends he hasn't fallen for the game, despite liking its dedicated ranked mode. In a recent Tweet, Aydan stated that while it hurt to leave Warzone "the game sucks and needs some changing before I hop on again". 

Crumbling At The Foundations

This is a very similar feeling many other streamers and content creators have had with Call of Duty in general as of late. Recently, the pro community has expressed their frustrations with a lack of support from Activision. And with people like TimTheTatman accidentally stumbling across bugged Warzone lobbies, it is no surprise that the dedicated player base are struggling with the game. 

While Warzone and Call of Duty have seen astronomical success in recent years, Activision may be bringing on the downfall of the franchise through its own hubris. Content creators and pro-players are the lifeblood of a game like Warzone as viewership through platforms like Twitch and YouTube continue to grow each year. However, as streamers grow larger audiences, the worsening reputation of the game spreads further and faster.

Hopefully, with the start of the new year, Activision will put a harder emphasis on community feedback, as without its community Warzone will fall to the likes of Apex Legends and Fortnite - battle royales that actively listen to their fanbase.
