Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has become only the second Twitch streamer ever to pass the 10 million follower milestone as he continues to grow on the platform. 

When Fortnite exploded in popularity on Twitch, so did a wide number of streamers. Some grew because they were entertaining to watch even if they were bad at the game, while others were pretty good at racking up Victory Royales in Epic Games’ battle royale. 

Tfue was a part of the latter category, as the 23-year-old dominated the battle royale in its early days, racking up tournament wins alongside long-time duo partner Dennis ‘Cloakzy’ Lepore for FaZe Clan. 

Even though he moved away from Fortnite, opting instead for a bit of variety streaming, as well as Call of Duty: Warzone, Tfue has continued to grow.

Tfue hits 10 million Twitch followers

The Florida native has always been the closest streamer to Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins’ crown as the most-followed channel on Twitch, even if he does lag a few million followers behind his longtime rival.

Though, he has continued to close the gap over time. During his lengthy February 13th stream, Tfue finally crossed the 10 million follower milestone while playing Minecraft, becoming only the second channel ever to do so. Naturally, he celebrated it with some drinks.

“Alright chat, thanks for 10 million followers,” he said before chugging two beers at the same time. He didn’t go any further than that with the celebrations, but instead, jumped right back into Minecraft. 

Though some fans unfollowed his channel in the hopes of being the lucky 10 millionth follower, they’ve joined back as Tfue has continued to climb steadily above the impressive marker. 

The gap between himself and Ninja is still pretty big, at close to almost seven million followers, but Tfue is over a million followers ahead of third-placed Shroud. 

Some fans will, no doubt, want to see him overtake Ninja one day but that’s unlikely to happen unless someone drops an army of botted viewers on Tfue’s channel – which has been an on-going problem on Twitch.

Day one recap: Didychrislito sets a marker as favorites cruise through

Day one was a day for the favorites as there were no major upsets in the eMLS League Series 2 Quarter-Finals. There were plenty of cagey affairs, kicked off by BenR scraping a late 1-0 win in the first game with xbLeU. Though, the Austin FC representative struck back in a pulsating 6-4 second leg, scoring two late goals to bag a 6-5 aggregate win.

The action did slow down a notch in the following games. DC United’s KingCJ0 surprised the viewers by putting KidM3Mito to the sword. He bagged early goals in the first legs, finishing up with a 3-1 win. CJ was cruising in leg two before two late consolations goals from Chicago Fire’s King M3Mito made it a respectable 5-3 aggregate scoreline.

From there, it was slightly plainer for the favorites. FC Dallas’ AlanAvi made sure the Twitch chat bets cashed without much worrying, taking down Orlando City’s Maloney with ease in convincing fashion. The 24-year-old completely dominated both legs, finishing up with a comfortable 3-0 first-leg win before seeing out the return fixture with a 1-0 victory.

In the final clash of the day, Series One winner Didychrislito bagged his semi-final berth by dismantling FC Cincinnati’s Fiddle 7-2. The New York City star was in complete control across both games, going as far as rounding the ‘keeper to make a statement that he’s hungry for the Series Two title as well.

Day two recap: DidyChrisLito claims the crown

For the first time all weekend, a game could not be finished in normal time, as KingCJ0 progressed thanks to a dramatic penalty shootout. It was a tense meeting between the DC United man and FC Dallas’ AlanAvi, but after withstanding late pressure in the second leg, KingCJ0 held his nerves through 10 rounds of spot kicks, coming away with the 6-5 aggregate win.

League Series One winner DidyChrisLito continued where he left off from day one, dispatching of Austin FC’s xbLeU without too many issues. Chris fell behind early in both legs, but responded with crisp attacks to dispatch of his opponent by an 8-2 aggregate scoreline. xbLeU had no answer for DidyChrisLito’s threaded through balls and was unable to replicate the magic of late win over benR from day one.

The final was more of the same from the New York City FC man. He fell behind early in both games against KingCJ0 but got into his groove, striking back in both games. In the second leg, his championship experience really showed out though, fighting back from 2-1 down to win.
