Christian "Snood" Hastie has announced he has signed to XSET, the brand new esport organisation set up by former directors of now-rival organisation FaZe Clan.
The Fortnite pro is a frequent sight at in late-games, with his career stretching all the way back to the initial esport offering of Epic's battle royale - 2018's Summer Skirmish Series.
It was around this time that he was picked up by Ghost Gaming, but after has been orgless after Ghost effectively departed the scene at the beginning of this year when they dropped the majority of their players including Tomthy "Bizzle" Miller and controller god Aydan "Aydan" Conrad.
Bizzle would eventually find himself on FaZe.
The esport organisation he is joining has made a big splash in the short time it's been made public, the brainchild of Greg Selkoe, Clinton Sparks and Wil Eddins, all former FaZe Clan executives, they have a mission of creating a more inclusive esport organisation.
"Gamers are from all walks of life and all backgrounds," explained Greg Selkoe in an interview with the New York Times. "But if you look at the current organizations, they sort of resemble a frat house. They’re not reflective of the racial and gender diversity in the gaming world.”
Promising to support movements such as Black Lives Matter, mental health and environmental consciousness the org is set to look very different from the "frat house" environment of so many that have come before.
It's not where you're from, but where you're at. Strength, Unity, Diversity. Let's change the game, together.— XSET (@XSETGAMING) July 16, 2020
