Many streamers have been returning to Jump King thanks to some new DLC, and they have had a lot of trouble with it, but Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors has finally been able to conquer the beast.

Jump King has been a hit on Twitch because viewers have a lot of interest in watching their favorite streamers become extremely frustrated.

On the other hand, once players are able to get over the hump and beat the game, there’s no greater feeling than that.

Even though it could take weeks to do, many streamers, like Forsen, have stuck with it.

What makes the victory even sweeter is that Forsen came close to abandoning the game entirely, but made the decision to keep on going, and a few days later he was able to beat it.

It was a very tough decision to make as he was clearly demoralized, but it all paid off in the end.

Jump King is arguably the most frustrating game you can play on stream because it’s so easy to have hours of progress wiped out from just a simple mistake.

After hours and hours of time get put into the game, eventually, Forsen was able to summon the skill to progress all the way to the top.

Jump King is a very difficult game.

As we’ve seen with streamers before, such as xQc, reaching the pinnacle of Jump King is a very draining moment.

When he reached the last jump before the top, he took a moment and collected himself before finally leaping up to the summit. He let out several victory cheers before proclaiming Jump King was an “easy game.”

Obviously, anybody who has played the game before will tell you that Jump King is far from an easy game.

Many players will quit long before they reach the top, so you can definitely earn your fair share of bragging rights by completing it.

Now, streamers will just have to wait for another frustrating game like this to release so they have another game to play that will keep viewers engaged.

We’re sure there’s a developer out there cooking up something as we speak. Perhaps all it’ll take is another Jump King DLC to release.

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.
