Aydan "Aydan" Conrad, Warzone's newly crowned highest-earning player, has apparently been banned from Warzone during a Jack Links 2v2 Tournament. The Battle-Royale star is one of the biggest Warzone players globally, so what's the deal?
Well, this seems like the typical case of another day, another Warzone ban, right? Wrong! Aydan is Warzone's highest-earning player, so his banning would be big news! Well, in the last 24 hours he has been banned... or not?
A couple of days ago, on March 15, Aydan began a hype campaign to announce which organization he will be joining, now that he is Warzone's highest-earning player. The hype is real, and what happened next displays Aydan as exactly the showman he is...
He got banned from Warzone! Or, did he? Seriously...

There is a lot of hype surrounding Aydan's choice of organization, what it could be, what it might not be. It turns out Aydan's Warzone Ban was a whole big, massive, hoax. FAKE NEWS!
Aydan's hoax was, in fact, all for those sweet and juicy memes. On Twitch, he used the title "Banned Mid-Tourney So I'm On An Alt", but also clarified in his Twitch chat, saying "I'm trolling. I'm trolling. I'm trying to get the impressions going". Good game, mate, good game...
Well, it certainly worked, didn't it (after all, we're writing about it!)? The Tweet went absolutely viral, with over 150 retweets, and hundreds of comments. Insane, right? Does it remind you of anything, though?
Well, it certainly reminds us of the time that RowdyRogan created a fake Warzone ban for the FaZe5 Challenge Top 20. That went viral, so it made sense for Aydan to try and go down the same road with his fake Warzone ban. One thing is for certain: you want attention, pretend to be banned!
