Erik Guttormsen Leaves Eleven Gaming After Row with Ghost Gaming’s Issa Rahim
An accusation of aim assist has spiraled out of control, resulting in a professional gamer resigning from his team. Erik Guttormsen, known as Bloodx, is a Norweigan gamer who previously was a member of Eleven Gaming, a professional Fortnite team. During a row with Issa Rahim, a member of Ghost Gaming, a screenshot came to light showing Guttormsen using a racist slur.
The incident began with an accusation. Guttormsen criticized Rahim for allegedly requiring aim assist to compete in Fortnite. Rahim’s response was to post a video to Twitter of him playing without aim assist active. Many people, including Guttormsen, began commenting on the video, leading to Rahim replying with a screenshot from a Discord argument showing Bloodx using a racist slur.
In response, Guttormsen accuses Rahim of “intentionally try[ing] to ruin my name and career”. He denies he is racist, however, he still is leaving Eleven Gaming. Bloodx justifies this decision so that the entire ordeal “no longer negatively impacts anyone associated with me.
