ZooMaa was definitely one of the most entertaining players in the pro scene that we’ve ever gotten the opportunity to see live, which is why we were all so very shocked to hear that he was officially retiring and instead turning towards live streaming for good.
Tommy “ZooMaa” Paparatto actually started off pretty small back when he originally stopped playing competitively although over the course of time, he slowly yet surely started attracting more and more eyes on him to the point where he now has over 11k subscribers on his personal Twitch channel.
He was known for representing the New York Subliners for a while, but as we all know by now, that didn’t really pan out all that well for Tommy as he obviously wanted more out of it and they just weren’t able to provide accordingly.
Luckily though there was another pro team that actually wanted to offer him the world and more, and this is a little-known team that goes by FaZe Clan.
That’s right, after all this time, ZooMaa officially returns to the FaZe Clan family, although not as a pro player but as a content creator instead.
If you haven’t been keeping up with ZooMaa’s history then this might sound confusing to you but the reason as to why everybody’s cheering for him on this choice is because he was actually a part of the FaZe Clan back in 2015.
He was a part of their main roster for over four years, and during this time period he amassed a lot of his victories to the point where he actually became one of the top players in the clan altogether.
He was especially well known in the Call of Duty scene, which he dominated thoroughly over the years. Next up he went onto the World War 2 Stage 1 Playoffs which is where he truly proved that he was not the kind of player that you ever wanted to see on the opposite end.
But after he left FaZe Clan, he appeared to be pretty much just a stowaway not realizing what he could possibly do to improve on his gameplay a bit. This led to his inevitable post online in which he exclaimed that he was done with being a pro player and that he wanted to focus solely on his content creation and his Twitch channel instead.
