In his most recent daily YouTube upload, Pewdiepie unpacked Ninja’s tweets on Fortnite and NFL kickers that went viral, and the Swedish internet superstar wasted no time in pointing out what Ninja did wrong and what he should aim for in the near future.

Ninja has had a busy week, with the return of Halo to PC and his appearance on the True Geordie podcast where he declared his goal of becoming the “world’s greatest gamer.”

But Ninja’s declaration of his lofty goal was preceded by a series of Saturday night tweets that set Twitter ablaze with all manner of responses, having to do with kickers in the NFL.

In the now-deleted tweets, Ninja expressed his opinion that the idea of NFL kickers missing “simple kicks” didn’t make any sense to him and that there should be a pool of NFL kickers available that wouldn’t miss them.

Ninja said in that first tweet that he “would love opinions on this” subject, and he certainly got plenty of those. When one person replied with a parody of Ninja’s original tweet about Fortnite players, the popular Mixer streamer responded with a fiery defense of the difficulty of Fortnite, calling the reply “s***ty” and the analogy “horrible [and] kind of embarrassing.”

The tweets and replies harbored all sorts of responses from people but have finally caught the attention of one of YouTuber’s most prominent creators in PewDiePie.

In his December 5 upload, titled “Ninja made a bad tweet,” Pewds took a look at Ninja’s original tweet on kicking and the divisive reply regarding Fortnite and weighed in on how the tweet was handled.

When looking at the reply, Felix said “this is what ruined it for me. Like yeah, sometimes I tweet dumb s**t too, that’s fine. But then he doubled down on it!”

After reading it aloud, PewDiePie focused in on the very last part of the reply, when Ninja says the Fortnite comparison was “kind of embarrassing.”

“Why would it be embarrassing,” he asked, “for a random stranger to tweet at you? It’s like he’s projecting what he said as kind of embarrassing onto someone else, and he makes no sense at all. Ninja, my man, stop, get some help.”

Prior to Pewdiepie weighing in on him, Felix said: “I like Ninja, don’t get me wrong.” And afterward, he said he believes Ninja does have the potential to become the world’s greatest gamer if he can do one simple thing.

“Stop trying so hard. You can have that [being the world’s greatest gamer] without shoving it into people’s faces.”

Ninja has taken the roasting he received from people in stride, as he followed up the next day with a parody of his original tweet about drinking too much wine. Regardless of how he approaches his goal, he’s already well on his way to potentially achieving it, as he already has one of the largest presences of any gamer in the world.

At the end of the day, the most important lesson to take away from all of this is that kickers are people too.

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.
