CouRage goes berserk after dying to BRUTEs in Fortnite

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.

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
