YouTube Gaming star Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop set fans up for the ultimate bait and switch when he teased a sneak peak at the new 100 Thieves house, only to troll them instead.

100 Thieves supporters have been eager for any kind of glimpse at the new Content House ever since Nadeshot revealed that it’ll blow people away during the December 19 episode of his podcast with CouRage.

It appeared as though fans were in for a treat with a sneak peak on January 3 when the YouTube Gaming star tweeted that he would show off an early preview of the new den if his post got over a certain amount of likes – something which turned out to be a sneaky troll.

CouRage’s tweet accumulated the 5,000 like goal in just a few minutes, proving just how thirsty 100T fans were for any sort of brief look at the house.

The 25-year-old lived up to his promise a short while later, and broke the anticipation with a follow-up post.

“BREAKING NEWS! The first official photo of the new 100T house!” he tweeted, alongside a photograph of a gray floor tile. “This is the view from my toilet to my bathroom floor. If this doesn’t get you hyped, then I don’t know what will.”

People seemed highly amused by the joke – as something like this isn’t out of the ordinary for the YouTube Gaming streamer – and replied to his post with messages of equal hilarity.

Even Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins weighed in, and stated that he’d taken back his like from the first tweet. “Just unfavorited and unliked your previous tweet,” he said. “I hate you.”

CouRage hilariously hit back with a reference to when the Fortnite star accidentally leaked that he would be joining 100 Thieves back in May 2019. “I’ll give you an actual exclusive first look, but you can’t leak it like you did with me joining 100T,” he joked.

The esports org first moved into a house together in Los Angeles, California in early 2019, making it easier for the team to create content together under one roof.

A tour of their new den is expected to drop sometime in January, as well as the announcement of a new member, so stay tuned.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
