Turner ‘Tfue‘ Tenney has reached a difficult point in his relationship with fellow Fortnite superstars Dennis ‘Cloak‘ Lepore and Thomas ’72hrs’ Mulligan after losing out on a big chunk of money. 

Update, September 8, 9:20AM EST: Cloak and 72hrs have now responded to Tfue’s accusations, suggesting it is his fault for miscommunicating about the situation.

When one thinks of tight-knit duos in Fortnite, the first pair that comes to mind is the combination of Tfue and Cloak, who many have idolized as their dream team tandem.

Unfortunately, it appears that their time as a duo may have come to an untimely end, due to some confusion that led to Tfue losing out on a considerable amount of money.

On September 7, he announced that he was no longer part of that trio, who had been playing together in Fortnite’s weekly trios tournaments over the past month. 

“Looking for a new permanent trio who take competitive seriously,” he tweeted, catching many by surprise with the unexpected news. 

When asked about it during his stream, Tfue said that his decision stemmed from Cloak and 72hrs apparently costing him a lot of money with their decision to do promotional streams for Madden 20.

He revealed that he’d declined to do a stream when EA Sports approached him, turning down $140,000 so that they could play in the trios tournament, but then found out later that the other two players had accepted their own deals without letting him know.

“So like, they do a sponsored stream for Madden, and they’re getting paid, and it’s on this weekend,” he explained. “Madden offered me over a $140,000 to play their game, and I declined because I thought we were going to play the tournament this weekend, and they took the offer without telling me last second.”

As a result, the former FaZe Clan star got stuck in limbo, as he could neither play the Fortnite tournament or host the promotional stream for Madden and earn an easy $140,000.

That amount, incidentally, is what he’s setting as the price that Cloak and 72hrs have to pay him if they want him to rejoin their trio. Until then, he sounded like he doesn’t really want much to do with either of them. 

“So now I’m out over $140,000 because I thought we were going to practice, and now I’m here. So if they want to pay me the money that I lost, then I’m down. But other than that, I don’t really f*ck with them”

Cloak - TwitterTfue and Cloak have been a duo for a long time, their peak coming at the Fall Skirmish Finals at TwitchCon 2018.

It’s highly unlikely that this is the last we’ll hear about this, as it still remains a real question whether Tfue will actually demand Cloak and 72hrs to pay him the money.

This situation is also a bit delicate because the two former FaZe pros had briefly moved in together, so there’s also uncertainty as to how that plays into all this, although it seems that they’re on their own for the time being.

Elon Musk pleads Overwatch to buff Torbjorn’s turrets

It’s no secret that tech billionaire Elon Musk plays video games, but on October 13, he shocked the internet when he revealed his Overwatch main and how he would buff the hero.

After making a rather random tweet about the “The Illuminaughty” – a clever play on words, YouTuber twomad asked the 49-year-old if he mains Torbjorn in Overwatch.

Regardless of how the weird topic got started, Elon replied saying “um… yes” confirming he does in fact play Blizzard’s hero-based FPS and mains the Swedish engineer.

The unlikely response earned Musk a whopping 26,000 likes. For much of Overwatch’s lifespan, Torb was considered a bit of a joke or throw pick who offered very little benefit on attack.

However, after a major rework, the DPS has grown increasingly stronger and is actually one of the most viable heroes in the game at all levels right now.

Sadly, Musk didn’t state how long he had been playing Overwatch or Torbjorn for that matter, so it’s possible that he had only played when the hero wasn’t as good or only after the big rework happened.

Even the official Overwatch Twitter account decided to get in on the fun and replied to Musk with a picture of a giant Torbjorn turret on Mars.

“We’ve been thinking about this for a while,” they captioned the humorous picture. “Call us.”

Furthermore, Musk went on to explain how he would buff Torbjorn and the ideas were interesting to say the least. “Please buff Torb’s turret!” he exclaimed. “Or maybe 2 weak turrets to allow more strategic degrees of freedom.”

It was certainly an interesting reply and a sign that we could be looking at one of the most ambitious crossovers in history if Overwatch takes Elon up on his idea.

Though it’s unlikely that we’ll see Musk’s ideas make it to the game, but there’s always the Experimental Mode, so it’s possible Elon could end up getting his wish.

Who knows – maybe next time you’re in a game and a player won’t swap off Torb, it may be Elon Musk of all people.
