Call of Duty: Warzone star Aydan has made millions playing shooter titles like CoD and Fortnite, but there’s a simple reason he doesn’t think he could ever play in the Call of Duty League.
Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad’s awards are serious. He’s racked up over $500,000 in tournament earnings from five different Call of Duty titles, Fortnite, and a few other games (according to Esports Earnings).
Of that money, a whopping $335,640 comes from Warzone – where he’s ranked #2 on the all-time earnings list, right behind former CoD pro Thomas “Tommey” Trewren.
While Aydan has won multiplayer events (e.g. a Black Ops Cold War $50,000 with Scump) and competes in Warzone tournaments with former CDL pros, he doesn’t think he can crack the league. The simple reason why? He doesn’t like to practice.
Warzone star Aydan was unable to play Pro CoD due to ‘practice’
In a new one interviewAydan explained that if he hadn’t started playing Fortnite, he would have continued grinding CoD “into the search-and-destroy scene.” There he built a brand and won events as a Battle Royale star before moving to Warzone.
While he has apparently thought about switching to professional multiplayer gaming, the BR star doesn’t feel cut out for it: “The CDL is completely different. It takes a lot of practice. I don’t think I ever liked training, even growing up.
Warzone and CoD Multiplayer have very obvious similarities, but Aydan’s point is fair. Even if the games are played on the exact same engine, there are major differences in preparation during the 2019 Modern Warfare season.
Despite obvious similarities in centering, movement, and weapon proficiency, if Aydan doesn’t enjoy training, he won’t enjoy grinding hardpoint routes or Search and Destroy strategists.
But who knows, maybe he’ll get frustrated watching his New York Subliners lose games and consider coming in for them after one Outcome of the losers bracket at the CDL Stage 1 Major.
