A fan of YouTube superstar Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has made the Swede an incredible concept skin for Fortnite Battle Royale after his appearance in Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem’s Friday Fortnite tournament.

PewDiePie teamed up with Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins for the second week of Friday Fortnite. The pair finished 9-12th, but only after Pewds was subbed out for TimTheTatman halfway through the tournament.

Kjellberg and Ninja certainly seemed to enjoy themselves, as they exchanged jovial insults back and forth. One fan was so impressed with the YouTube King’s role that he made an impressive concept skin just in case PewDiePie steps up his interest in the game and wants a skin added to Epic Games’ battle royale.

YouTube: PewDiePie/Twitch: NinjaPewDiePie and Ninja formed a very unlikely duo in Friday Fortnite on June 7.

Reddit user RomanPsd posted the concept on June 9, with the modest caption: “My Attempt At Making A PewDiePie Concept Skin”. Many users were impressed with the skin, and it has amassed over 8,000 upvotes on Reddit since it was posted.

The concept skin has a number of features fans will recognise, including the YouTube star’s signature jacket and headset. The hair and beard seem to be pitched perfectly as well, replicating the Swede’s complexion accurately. However, one commenter joked that the skin failed to incorporate the “cat ears” on the headset.

It is not the first time a PewDiePie fan has made him a concept skin. Back in December 2018, an avid fan developed a Fortnite Battle Royale skin for the YouTuber, in the hope that it would help him win in his subscriber race against Bollywood label T-Series (it didn’t).

PewDiePie’s future with the third-person battle royale game is far from clear, but it’s evident that fans enjoy seeing him play, particularly alongside superstars such as Ninja.


xQc begs his Twitch fans to stop sending so many “sad” donations

In a hilarious but sincere rant, xQc begged his fans to stop sending so many “sad” donation messages, particularly when they happen one after the other and even more so when they are fake.

Twitch donations are the best way for fans to pass on a message to their favorite streamers. Not all streamers have text-to-speech for donations turned on, and even they do, they don’t always hear them. However, it’s still more effective than spamming in the chat.

Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel gets bombarded with donation messages every stream. They’re often funny, but they can sometimes be sad and depressing. xQc has finally had enough of that, particularly when it’s excessive and insincere.

The Twitch star has slotted (deliberately or otherwise) into his 'bad guy' role perfectly.

The Twitch star had a lot to say about “sad” donations during a recent stream.

“Let me talk about this once and for all,” he said. “I realize this kind of like a picky topic… but I’ll just tell you straight up, okay? The emotional [donation messages] are fine when they’re true.”

“The problem is when there’s too many of them that are stacked, it feels like… all the energy goes down,” he added.

“Sometimes it’s f**king overwhelming,” he said. “I feel bad for the people that are having tough times, legitimately, and they’re struggling. They’re trying to get under the wave of BigPog, and you just pull everybody down.”

“When there’s a couple, it’s fine,” he added. “But when it’s too stacked, I feel bad for the people that are just trying to escape. They’re getting f**ked on over and over again. It’s selfish as sh*t.”

“Those that bait it are even worse,” he said. “It’s fake, and it’s trolling, and it’s f**king stupid as sh*t. I’m tired of it, dude. That sh*t is garbage. I could have said it in a better way, but there’s no way around it. Holy sh*t, man.”

“I don’t want to shut down people from saying stuff that they’re going through,” he added. “Just be mindful not to stack it all. I don’t want this stream to become a ship of despair.”

xQc has never been one to bite his tongue, and he didn’t hold back here. However, somebody posted the clip on Reddit, and it seems like others sympathize with him.

“I feel bad for the people, but it just completely ruins the mood every time,” wrote one user, which ended up being the top comment. “I love watching XQC, but [text-to-speech] is unbearable,” wrote another.

In the end, though, there’s two sides to every story. It will be interesting to see what donors who leave these messages haveto say. Maybe they’ll understand.
