Tyler ‘Fortnite on June 13, playing with zero ping to the game’s servers.
Ping is a very important aspect of online gaming, as it measures the latency between the player and the server. The higher your ping, the more lag you will experience when trying to build walls on games like Fortnite, so playing on a low ping connection can give you an advantage over other players.
Tfue has been streaming out of New York City, playing close to the NA East Coast servers and enjoying zero ping, a fact he has been sure to reference in his stream titles – and something that Ninja has clearly noticed based on his funny dig aimed at the pro player.
While streaming with long-time duos partner Malachi ‘Reverse2k’ Grenier, the former Halo pro was asked by his teammate what his ping was currently at, as Ninja is currently in Los Angeles for the Fortnite Celebrity Pro-Am.
“Dude, what’s your ping?” asked Reverse2k. “Nine,” responded the 28-year-old as he watched it drop. “Three. Zero.”
“Let me put it in my title every time I go live! I forgot to tweet that I’m on zero ping, my bad.”
Reverse2k could only laugh, before telling Ninja: “You’re so toxic!”
This isn’t the first time Ninja has appeared to take a shot at Tfue. Back in April, the streamer joked that he was going to include Tenney in the title of his YouTube video after he eliminated him from a match.
The pair even went head-to-head in a crucial World Cup qualifying match, with Ninja once again getting the better of the Fortnite star. Ninja even made a joke at Tfue’s expense regarding his on-going lawsuit against FaZe Clan, saying that people should call him ‘TSue’.
With the pair largely recognized as the biggest content creators that Fortnite has to offer, it seems the two aren’t content to let the other overpass, and it’s likely that their rivalry will continue on.
