Professional Fortnite player and content creator Cody “Clix” Conrod has announced that he is leaving NRG Esports after more than two years.
Cody “Clix” Conrod made a name for himself on the Fortnite professional scene while working at NRG, even achieving huge success on content creation platforms such as YouTube and Twitch.
Klicks signed with NRG at the age of 16 and performed well in Fortnite during his time there, for example, earning first place with another Fortnite professional Dukez at C3S4: Elite Cup Finals — Week 1 in 2022.
Unfortunately, it seems that Klicks’ time at NRG has come to an end after the announcement on his Twitter.
Fortnite Pro Clix Announces It is Leaving NRG
On Wednesday, January 25, 2023, Klicks announced his retirement from the esports organization: “No longer with @NRGgg, thank you for the best 2 years of my life. I wouldn’t be anywhere without you guys. I’m excited about what the future holds for me.”
The official NRG Twitter account confirmed the message with a simple response with two purple hearts, although at the time of writing, the company had not made its own official announcement about Klicks’ departure.
No longer with @NRGgg , Thank you for the best 2 years of my life. Wouldn't of been anywhere I am without you guys. Excited for what the future holds me 🙏

In the run-up to the announcement, fans were speculating whether Klicks and his NRG colleague Fortnite Pro AussieAntics would leave the organization, since a few days earlier both had removed ties to NRG from their Twitter biographies.
While it remains to be seen if AussieAntics will leave NRG along with Klicks, this will make him the only remaining NRG Fortnite player on the list. It looks like NRG may try to move away from competitive Fortnite entirely by comparing its active roster to players in games like Valorant, Apex Legends, and Rocket League.
At the moment, only time will tell what Klicks has in store for his future as a professional Fortnite player, as he has yet to tell in detail about the reason for his departure from NRG.
