Fortnite Battle Royale, the professional player believes the game is in its worst ever state. 

The popular Twitch streamer had already made it clear that he doesn’t really want to play the battle royale game anymore, but during his May 14 broadcast he took his criticisms to a whole other level.

FaZe Tfue, one of the most winningest esports players in terms of prize money, made it clear that he believes the game’s Season 9 meta is worse than any other he has seen before, in a frustrated rant about the game.

FaZe ClanTfue has had a lot to say about Fortnite Season 9 so far…

“I enjoy playing it but I definitely think it’s the worst meta that’s ever existed,” the streamer said, seemingly deflated. “It’s worse than anything I could have imagined. It’s worse than when the Tommy Gun came out the first time.”

As Tfue mentioned, the Drum Gun – or Tommy Gun as it’s widely referred to – made its return after winning a fan vote during Season 8’s final Unvaulting event.

The move has been widely criticized by pro players and streamers, with Ninja also asking Epic Games to vault the weapon in a tweet on May 15. 

“Played the new patch for 90 minutes today and I’m going to say it… Vault the Drum Gun,” he posted.

Will Tfue change his mind? 

The chances of Tfue quitting Fortnite Battle Royale altogether in the near future is highly unlikely, though, despite the negative comments he’s made about its current state. In fact, on May 15 he seemed to have showed some support to the changes made by Epic Games in the v9.01 patch, where the Drum Gun and The Baller faced further nerfs. 

He, and many other pro players, will be hoping that the developer makes further tweaks to gameplay in due course. Yet, there is no suggestion that more significant changes to the current meta are in the works, as of the time of writing.

Popular Twitch streamer ‘TheStockGuy’ was left speechless after receiving 126 lbs of cranberry sauce in the mail from one of his viewers in a hilarious prank.

Twitch is one of the net’s most popular live streaming platforms, and rightfully so; the site is home to a slew of hilarious and shocking moments that happen in real-time, from everything to doors falling on unlucky streamers in the middle of video games to viewers rescuing streamers’ trapped cats.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch: Pokimane
Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
