Popular Fortnite stream sniper, but it appears that he may have the proof to get the cheater banned for good.

The sniper, known as tctroy0 on Twitch, has been caught in the past targeting popular streamers in the battle royale title, and had his account suspended back in January after targeting FaZe Clan star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Gen.G member AvaGG.

Following his ban, tctroy0 is back and still attempting to ruin streamers’ broadcasts, this time targeting CouRage and Marcel ‘BasicallyIDoWrk’ Cunningham while the pair played duos matches on Thursday, March 21.

The sniper has targeted personalities like Tfue and AvaGG in the past.

CouRage and BasicallyIDoWrk found themselves hunting for an enemy in Pleasant Park, when BasicallyIDoWrk was taken out by an enemy sitting in the garage of the building waiting for him. When CouRage attempted to push in and eliminate him, he was immediately killed as well by the Dual Pistol-wielding enemy.

As their opponent danced, Dunlop stated: “Okay, what’s his Twitch name?” commenting that it was definitely a streamer who had TTV, which stands for, in their username. His assumption was correct, with the sniper playing under the username ‘ttv TC Troy’.

The pair then searched for the player’s Twitch account, and joined the stream as tctroy0 bragged about killing the pair with Dual Pistols.

Both CouRage and BasicallyIDoWrk were confused as to how he knew he had killed them, as both believed they were using either Fortnite’s Streamer Mode or Anonymous Mode, which stops usernames from showing.

Tctroy0 made little attempt to hide what he was doing, bragging to his Twitch chat immediately afterwards, revealing that he had been watching their streams to gain an advantage over them.

“I stream sniped him. I fucking stream sniped him,” tctroy0 told his viewers. “I killed him with the fucking [dual pistols]. So you, know what? I don’t give a fuck. I don’t give a fuck!”

The stream sniper then joined CouRage’s Twitch chat at his request, and explained that he was able to snipe him because Dunlop didn’t have a delay on his broadcast. As soon as CouRage read this, he screenshotted the exchange and asked his moderators from his chat, deleting the logs.

“Mods, can we ban Troy now,” Dunlop told his chat. “I have enough evidence now to him admitting in my chat, plus the stream itself. So we’ve got the clip, his account and him admitting. Played like a fiddle!”

At time of writing, tctroy0’s Twitch account is still up, but it’s possible that the notorious stream sniper may see it removed once again after his latest attempt to ruin broadcasts.

His channel was previously suspended for similar behaviour, and it’s likely that Twitch will hand out a much stronger punishment for a repeat offence, with the possibility of his account being permanently removed.

We’ll be sure to keep this post updated with any new information.


Tyler1 amazes Smash Ultimate pros after battling MkLeo on Twitch

Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp faced off against the number one Smash Ultimate player, Leonardo ‘MkLeo’ López Pérez, in what was meant to be a fun T1 crossover. Instead, the League challenger got to work, trash talking and smashing about the best in the world.

Tyler1 doesn’t do anything by halves. He’s loud, and has the personality to match. He revs up his Twitch stream to hundreds of thousands of adoring fans daily, who are there not for the gameplay, but for the Tyler1 ride.

Those who caught the streamer’s November 27 cast were certainly in for a ride. The League of Legends star collided with Smash Ultimate’s biggest name, MkLeo.

It makes sense a crossover between the two was inevitable ⁠— with both being part of prestigious organization T1 ⁠— but the action exceeded everyone’s expectations. Of course, Tyler1 got trounced by MkLeo. However, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t able to get a stock or two, and the League streamer let the Smash pro know about it.

“Leo, I don’t think you’re that good dude. How bad are Smash players if I almost f**king beat you,” Tyler1 said, while struggling to get more than half a stock on average every game.

MkLeo didn’t take it lying down though. “You’re so bad that you’re really good at the same time,” he hit back with.

Tyler1 kept frying the big fish though. Next on his stop of trash talk was Leffen. “Leffen is a scrawny p*ssy a** b*tch. Kid sucks at f**king Smash. Rages at a children’s game, f**king loser,” he said, which had MkLeo in stitches. He had enough slaptalk for Samsora and other pros too.

Fans were also treated to some iconic Tyler1 reactions, and there was none bigger than the streamer’s bewilderment at Arsene, Joker’s Persona. “What the hell is that? Did you just enter a cheat code, bud? Are you cheating?”

After it was all said and done though, the crossover did what it intended to do. It united the League of Legends and Smash communities, and entertained everyone in the crossover that no one really wanted, but they definitely enjoyed.

“Playing and chilling with [Tyler1] really made me realize what it is to be a streamer and a gamer. Loved his personality and him as a person, looking forward to more collaborations like these,” MkLeo said on Twitter.

“T1 playing smash with Leo was actually so godlike. Makes me actually want to play league more and see if I can get to further than Masters,” Samsora also added on Twitter.

Tyler1 kept his side of the story nice and quaint though: “It was pretty fun.”
