While players are still figuring out the newly released Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8, a professional Fortnite player has decided parted ways with Optimal Ambition, and it is none other than OA Whofishy himself.
Kyle “Whofishy” Splett is a 17-year-old professional Fortnite player for Optical Ambition based out of Chicago, Illinois. Whofishy started playing Fortnite competitively in the summer of 2019, while still attending school. He has almost $100,000 in earnings from Fortnite events, including a #1 place finish in a Trios Cash Cup, #6 place in the latest season of FNCS, and numerous top ten finishes throughout his professional career.
Whofishy has around 62 000 subscribers on Youtube and 134 000 followers on Twitch where he streams regularly. For tournaments, he has been teaming up with Cazz and Nick “Aspect” McGuire, both of which are quite talented Fortnite players.
Achievements with Optimal Ambition
Whofishy joined Optimal Ambition on June 11, 2020, a year after his entry into competitive Fortnite. Since then, he has managed to increase his social media presence by tenfold. A look at statistics tells us that at the start of August 2020, Whofishy had 8,000 followers and a year later it has increased to 130,000 followers. While his own persistence and hard work cannot be overlooked in this achievement, being part of Optimal Ambition helped further his reputation in the Fortnite community.
Whofishy interview with Gamelevate
A few months back, Whofishy sat down with Gamelevate to discuss his background in gaming, chemistry with teammates, the future of Fortnite, and a lot more. However, he also briefly touched on his experience with Optimal Ambition by stating:
“Optimal Ambition has always treated me with the utmost respect and supported me as a player, which is why I really appreciate them and consider them as my second family.”
Whofishy leaves Optimal Ambition
Whofishy announced his departure from Optimal Ambition through a tweet wherein he stated:
“As of today, I have split with @OptimalAmbition on good terms. I wish them and everyone else on the team the best of luck. With that being said, I am officially a free agent looking to represent a new organization.”
Optimal Ambition, too, confirmed this move on their Twitter page:
“We are forever grateful for your time with us and wish you the absolute best in your future endeavors. Thank you, @whofishy.”
Following his departure, Whofishy is now a Free Agent looking to sign with an organization, and given his portfolio, it won’t be long before a team decides to add him to their roster. On another note, the exact reason why Whofishy left Optimal Ambition is yet to be declared; however, both parties seemed to have reached this decision on good terms according to Whofishy’s tweet.
