My response to #freemitr0
I first want to start by saying thank you to my family and friends for their support since the beginning of my career in Fortnite. When I first signed with Atlantis back in June 2018, I had no idea that I would be where I am today. I want to thank Atlantis for taking a chance and signing me. Since then, a lot has changed. The game, the community and competitive are completely different than when I signed with Atlantis.
Last night I was just as shocked as everyone else at what happened with #freemitr0
A lot of the claims being made about my contract are far from the truth and exaggerated. I can’t go into the specifics of my contract, but I can say in September 2018 I signed my final contract with Atlantis which included a salary raise in January 2019. At that point, I was happy with the terms. Over time that changed, and I outgrew Atlantis. I let Atlantis know in January 2019 that I was ready to move on to a larger org. Team Atlantis and I tried to come to various solutions since then but none of them have ended up working. So I decided to wait for my contract to end and find a new org as a free agent.
After talking with Atlantis management today, it was mutually agreed that Atlantis would release me after FNCS. I wish Atlantis, their staff and all of the players nothing but the best moving forward.
