Twitch streamer and 100 Thieves owner Jack ‘Fortnite players who have an issue with the game’s new BRUTE Mechs.

The BRUTE was introduced with Fortnite’s v10.00 patch on August 1 and while it may be entertaining for some players, streamers and pro Fortnite players have been raging against how over powered the new vehicle is.

Epic Games responded with a statement on the mech backlash on August 15 and told everyone the BRUTE’s were here to stay for the foreseeable future.

CouRage/TwitchThis picture says it all, really.

What happened to CouRage?

During a Twitch Rivals match with fellow streamer Tim TimTheTatman Betar, CouRage had several BRUTEs attack his team’s build at once – ending the way most mech vs. non-mech fights seem to.

The streamers’ defenses were destroyed in a matter of seconds and CouRage was knocked out soon after, which threw him off on a tirade against the vehicle.

“F**k the meeeeccchhhsss,” CouRage raged with some xQc-worthy desk smashes. “Why the f**k are they a f**king thing dude? ”

“They’re so f**king stupid dude,” Tim replied. “Why did they just blow up that one building we were in dude?”

It’s the same complaint almost everyone has about the BRUTE’s – unless you have one as well, it’s a serious challenge to take out one of the OP machines, let alone three.

Is the BRUTE driving Fortnite players away?

CouRage’s latest encounter with the BRUTE seems to have been a breaking point, with the streamer telling Tim he was “done” with the game.

“I’m not playing anymore bro, I’m off this game, I’m sorry Tim, I’m not playing anymore today,” CouRage told his partner. “I love this game so much, and how incompetent is this decision dude? I’m off this game – I can’t play it.”

“We were literally hiding in the building with no real builds around us HOPING the mech would just pass over us,” said Tim, who obviously isn’t a fan of the BRUTEs either, said on Twitter. “Sad that we have to play that way right now…”

So even though Epic Games have basically told Fortnite players to accept the BRUTEs into their lives, that doesn’t mean anyone is really happy about it. Besides people who manage to get the mechs, of course.


Lando Norris criticized for “disrespectful” apology to Lewis Hamilton

McLaren F1 driver, Twitch streamer, and all-round good guy Lando Norris has been in the news for his controversial comments towards fellow drivers. However, it seems that some fans aren’t accepting any sort of apology for the matter after he posted on Twitter.

While McLaren F1 driver Lando Norris is generally seen as one of the breakout personalities on the 2020 F1 grid, he doesn’t always get it right 100% of the time. He’s also had a number of issues off-grid too, being forced to shut down a Twitch stream by F1 officials during the 2020 Eifel GP.

Having said a number of controversial comments about fellow drivers Lewis Hamilton and Lance Stroll during an interview, he is now facing backlash after issuing an apology on Twitter.

Lando Norris lashes out at Hamilton and Stroll

During the Portuguese GP on October 25, 2020, Lewis Hamilton clocked up his record-breaking 92nd win. This exceeded the previous record held by the legendary Michael Schumacher, and Norris didn’t seem all that impressed.

“I’m just happy for him, nothing more; It doesn’t mean anything to me, really. He’s in a car which should win every race, basically,” Norris said following the Portuguese GP. “He has to beat one or two other drivers, that’s it. Fair play to him, he’s still doing the job he has to do.”

Not only did Lando take aim at Hamilton, but also at Lance Stroll following their collision during lap 17 of the Portuguese GP. Bizarrely, Stroll also clashed with Verstappen at the exact same point during Free Practice, which perhaps explains Lando’s comments. According to Lando, he will have to avoid Stroll in future since “he crashes a lot” and “doesn’t learn from anything he does.”

Lando Norris issues Twitter apology to F1 fans

Following the backlash for his comments, Norris took to his Twitter account to issue an apology for his actions, but many are saying he didn’t go far enough.

Unfortunately for Lando, he has faced harsh criticism following his apology message. One Twitter user pointed out he didn’t address his recent issues directly, saying: “You cannot even name Lewis. Shame on you for your inability to be respectful.”

Not only was he deemed to be disrespectful, but was also called out for his own racing performance: “lol [Norris] hasn’t even beaten a teammate in a full season and thinks [that] Hamilton’s achievement are not special” wrote another account.
