FaZe Clan Rearrange FaZe1 Competition As COVID Outbreak Leaves Contestants In Tears

FaZe Clan Rearrange FaZe1 Competition As COVID Outbreak Leaves Contestants In Tears

FaZe Clan's reality series, FaZe1, designed to give 20 contestants a shot at winning a $1,000,000 contract with the prestigious gaming organisation, has officially been halted due to an outbreak of the coronavirus that left some of the streamers in tears.

The FaZe1 competition pitted 20 content creators together in a reality TV show (Big Brother-esque) to put their personalities to the test, until one lucky contestant was left to coup one of the biggest individual contracts in esports history.

However, multiple contestants tested positive for the virus, causing outrage on social media and leaving the Clan with no option but to postpone the event.

FaZe Clan Contestants Test Positive for Coronavirus

The two-week-long competition is only a mere six days into its lifetime, and already five contestants have been forced to be disqualified from the competition after testing positive for COVID-19. FaZe's lack of protocols to deal with such an outbreak has sparked community backlash, with the competition being branded as the survival of the fittest immune system, rather than a popularity contest. 

Content Creators "Potter", "ENZO", "Ernsto", "Reversah", and "Legend" were all disqualified from the event after testing positive.

Ernsto's case proved to be the most damaging for FaZe Clan, after he posted a video on social media in tears after being told he cannot continue. "I really thought this was it, man. I really thought this was the one. But whoever’s up there watching me, I guess it wasn’t my time," said Ernsto in the video titled: "I'm heartbroken".

Potter also had a similar sentiment, taking to Twitter to say, "The greatest opportunity of my life has been robbed from me. Hard to stay positive during this time but I know God is using this for good."

 

FaZe Clan Postpone FaZe1 Competition

Despite originally disqualifying the five competitors, even replacing two of them with fresh talent, FaZe Clan folded to the community pressure and has now pledged that the FaZe1 competition has been postponed and will be restarted with all 22 contestants.

Warehouse host Sebastian "FaZe cbass" first took to Twitter to hint at a re-start, saying "an active situation and changing all the time, for the sake of the contestants we have here, we are committed to moving forward." The post added, "We know your stories with FaZe Clan do not end here."

Moments later, the organisation posted to their social media to confirm that they are to halt the production of FaZe1, and will restart in the future.

FaZe Clan didn't detail when the competition will restart, and in what capacity, but will update fans soon.
