Canadian Smash player Elliot "Ally" Bastien Carroza-Oyarce is no longer part of Boreal eSports, according to a tweet from the player.

Boreal eSports has not released a statement regarding Ally's apparent departure.

Ally is universally considered to be the best Smash 4 and Brawl player in Canada. He broke out at Apex 2009, after beating M2K in the Brawl tournament. Though he hasn't been in contention for Top 5 Smash 4 player globally — with no recent wins against Nairo, ZeRo or Dabuz — his results at non-international tournaments are still very good.

Playstyle-wise, Ally is best known for taking safe, defensive options, and secures wins by capitalizing on his opponents' lack of patience. He's currently a Mario player, but has tweeted he's going to try out something new, since Mario isn't getting the results he wants.

Ally's plan for the future is not clear, but he said on Twitter that he may have another organization lined up.
