Fortnite Battle Royale, but FaZe Clan’s Ricky Banks already thinks he has a good idea about who could scoop the grand prizes. 

Ninja has revealed, however, that he will be sending three of the best trickshotters that compete in his trials all the way to New York City, where they will be able to compete for up to $3 million. 

The popular Twitch streamer is set to announce further details for the competition during a YouTube video on May 15, but one of his teasers, which was posted to Twitter, caught the eye of FaZe Banks and he’s already put forward three potential competitors that he believes would succeed at the event. 

Epic GamesFortnite Battle Royale players will face all sorts of obstacles in the Creative World Cup.

The players that he suggested should be considered for the event, of course, are three members of the esports organization that he’s associated with – FaZe Mew, FaZe Kaz, and Faze Orba. 

For those who aren’t aware of these players, FaZe recruited both Mew and Kaz back in September 2018, with the former being dubbed the “best trickshotter in the game” during his official announcement video. Now, though, it looks as if Banks is eager to put those skills to the test. 

Mew has already confirmed that he would like to take part in Ninja’s Creative Trials, posting a message of his own on Twitter. 

“You guys have no idea how much I want this,” the 22-year-old gamer tweeted on May 13. “I’ll do whatever it takes to kill it in this. Thank you for supporting me in such a life changing opportunity. Hoping for the best. Can’t wait to see what we gotta do.”

Fortnite World Cup – Creative Trials

These Creative Trials will be part of Epic Games’ Creative World Cup competition, which is a spin-off from the $30 million World Cup competitive competition. 

This involves players coming together to face off on maps created by the community, and FaZe Banks will be hoping that – if given the chance – that members of his organization can place in Ninja’s top three of the event’s trickshot table and progress to the $3 million New York event. 

We await Ninja’s official YouTube announcement and will keep this story updated if this interaction is extended before or after those details are available.

Twitch streamer confronts DoorDash driver after console war trash talk

Console wars are nothing new to video game enthusiasts. From schoolyard debates to forum threads 500 pages deep, console loyalists have fought tooth and nail since the dawn of time. Now, the battleground has shifted with even DoorDash drivers getting in on the action against customers.

During a Twitch broadcast, streamer Jameskii was playing Minecraft while waiting for DoorDash to deliver his order. Suddenly, he received a text message on his phone.

“Hold on, is my drink here?” he wondered as he grabbed his mobile device. “Oh my God! Oh my God!”

As the streamer stared down at his phone, he could hardly contain his disbelief at the message he received from the driver.

“My food delivery guy just messaged me ‘Xbox is trash as f**k,” he laughed. “I’m not kidding. My f**king DoorDash just messaged me. It says, ‘Hello, DoorDash has arrived with your order’ and the next message is ‘Xbox is trash as f**k.’”

As it turns out, the driver actually tried to call the streamer, but when Jameskii didn’t pick up, he felt the need to trash talk Xbox.

Despite all this confusion and the out of context attack on Microsoft’s console, Jameskii wondered if he should call the driver back.

“Say yeah, PlayStation is better, woo!” his friend suggested as the streamer began to redial the number.

Eventually, someone on the other end picked up. “Alright, what did you say about Xbox?” Jameskii asked point-blank.

After a few moments of silence, the driver doubled down on his earlier comment and shouted, “F**k Xbox!”

The remark had the streamer in stitches and made him burst out laughing at the absurdity of the whole situation.

While console wars have a long history dating beyond even the 90s when Nintendo and Sega duked it out, it’s unlikely that the phenomenon ever reached a point where delivery drivers partake. It just goes to show that we’re living in a strange timeline.
