Nicholas ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony proved he is the most positive Fortnite streamer around with his reaction to an unlucky death during a $20,000 Friday Fortnite event.

NickEh30 was the last alive for his team, one kill from tying or two kills away from winning the match to advance in Keemstar’s Friday Fortnite Tournament.

He was caught out in the storm with low health, needing to heal himself and drive an ATK vehicle quickly back into play.

NickEh30 managed to do all of that, yet he still died mysteriously.

The anticlimactic end to the match ruined what might have been an exciting finish and a chance at the $10,000 first prize, but NickEh30 reacted with his trademark positivity.

He laughed and smiled as he questioned the death, deciding it was because he ran over himself.

NickEh30 later believed lag was also a factor in the accidental death, since the game was being hosted by his opponents on European servers.

Reddit user IOwnYourData also weighed in on a possible cause for the self-elimination:

“He tried to get out of the cart, but there wasn’t enough room since he was on a wall. Since the game can’t put two objects in the same space… it put him at the closest available open space. Unfortunately, that open space happened to be right in front of the still-moving vehicle.”

Other users pointed out that you cannot damage yourself with a kart, so NickEh30 was potentially glitched underneath the map when struck by the vehicle.

There are other Fortnite streamers that would not have reacted as kindly to a glitch death in a major tournament, likely resulting in a NSFW language tirade that would send parents everywhere searching for the mute button.

How would you have handled a glitch death in that situation?

Mr Beast struggles through ridiculous 24-hour ice house challenge

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is no stranger to over the top challenges but his latest video was one of the most difficult he’s ever filmed, as he struggled to endure 24 hours in a house made completely of ice.

While Mr Beast loves to giveaway crazy prizes to competitors, friends, and even just strangers on the street, he also loves a good challenge. From 24 hours in a prison to surviving on a deserted island, the popular YouTuber has done just about everything.

Looking to push the boundaries even further, his latest task was to endure the freezing cold for a full day. It wasn’t just a cold room with the air conditioning cranked, it was an entire house made of ice. Brick by brick the structure fully was completely encased in ice to keep Mr Beast as cold as possible.

Everything from the chairs to the toilet was also frozen solid. Mere hours into the attempt it had quickly become “one of the harder challenges [he’s] ever done.”

A few hours into the challenge and Mr Beast had to start getting regular checks to ensure he wasn’t in proper danger.

So what was the motive to remain in the ice house? If Mr Beast survived all 24 hours, his closest friends would have to cover themselves “in syrup and feathers” in public. On the other hand, if he left early, the same punishment would be applied.

After a few hours of pacing back and forth to keep his body active, he bargained for a pair of gloves. A nearby crew member handed them over and agreed to a $10,000 deal to be Mr Beast’s “spy” throughout the challenge.

This was certainly one of the more unique challenges on the channel as the gimmick never let up. Mr Beast was even forced to eat a stack of pancakes with a fork made entirely of ice. At the 12 hour mark, he conceded that “it was brutal.”

“Literally the coldest I’ve ever been in my entire life,” he said after the fact. “I was miserable.” Despite the odds being stacked against him and his friends trying to make the challenge even harder, he pushed through to the very end.

Days after revealing his most expensive video ever, it turns out this rather simple challenge was quite costly as well. 

“This video cost me around $300,000 to make. For the price that it cost me to build an ice house, I could have bought a real house.”
