One of the highest profile Fortnite competitions to date has been won by a PlayStation 4 player going up against the PC competitors.

Popular personality and host of Drama Alert, Daniel ‘Keemstar’ Keem, hosted the tournament alongside UMG, with a $5,000 first place prize on offer for the winning duo.

The names featured in the internet celebrity tournament included a wide variety of content creators and professional Fortnite players. 

Keemstar pulled out all the stops to get the biggest names involved, including members of Clout Gang, FaZe Clan, The Sidemen, OpTic Gaming, 100 Thieves plus a host of other names including Mr Beast, NetNobody, Logan Paul, GreekGod and a whole host more.

Playing through a double elimination bracket, the tournament followed typical UMG Fortnite rules, which were created due to the lack of custom lobbies.

Two players from each team joined the opposing two players as a squad, and fought their way independently through the cycle of the map, with the winning squad the team with the most kills at the end. The rules require players to avoid each other and not to intentionally try and kill the opponent.

In a surprising turn of events, popular PS4 streamer NICKMERCS placed first alongside Luminosity Fortnite player, SypherPK. 

They did drop to the loser bracket after losing in WBR4 to Jelly and Svenosss, but battled through to the grand final, defeating NoahJ456 and Avxry over two sets to secure the title!

xQc unamused as hilarious Google search trolls him with Ninja’s picture

Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel got an unpleasant surprise when he decided to do some research on who the most-subscribed streamer on Twitch is, only to be trolled by Google with Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins’ photo.

xQc is one of Twitch’s most popular streamers on Twitch and, by our measure, he’s easily one of the most successful on the platform this year, raking in close to $2 million overall.

Subscribers obviously make up a big part of that total amount, so you’re bound to find Felix on top of any ‘most-subscribed’ list for Twitch. Because it’s the end of the year and lists for the top streamers of 2020 are coming out, his chat urged him to search for exactly that.

“Most subbed streamer? Who cares, subs are temporary, sub count can go up and down, it can go away,” xQc said in response. “It doesn’t define what you do or who you are. People who attach their personality, and their ego, and their confidence to some random digit number that goes up and down — because they need some random pixels to feel better.”

 

Success doesn’t come without its struggles as they say, and the former Overwatch League pro found that out first hand when he finally gave in and did the search for his chat.

Sure enough, his name popped right up at the top of the Google search results, but instead of a picture of himself, it was accompanied by a photo of Ninja, which is very ironic since that’s who Felix has been compared to over the years by his merciless audience.

After initially looking proud when his name popped up, he quickly was at a loss for words for how badly he had been trolled by the search engine.

With his chat predictably cracking up, xQc simply closed the window and went back to his Minecraft run, continuing his original train of thought after a bit of awkward silence.

“In my opinion, if most of the basis of your self-confidence is from things that are outer, not from within, then you have no medium, you’ll never know what’s happening,” he reflected, trying to forget about the unfortunate search results. “You’ll always be guided by what others think, and then what?”

Not surprisingly, Ninja didn’t crack our list of the top-earning Twitch streamers for 2020, considering he only recently returned to the platform after Microsoft shut Mixer down in June.

Blevins still made out just fine though, reportedly making between $30-50 million from his streaming deal with the site, and the newfound freedom to broadcast wherever he pleases, which led him to re-sign with Twitch.

Despite the hilarious comparisons that many have made of the two, xQc still has a ways to go if he plans on making the kind of money Ninja rakes in from streaming. Still, he is undoubtedly one of the most subbed-to streamers on Twitch, so you’d think Google would at least get his picture right.

Maybe next year Felix!
