Tfue explains why Fortnite made a mistake bringing back Greasy Grove

In a recent stream, pro Fortnite player Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has lashed out at Epic Games for reintroducing Greasy Grove.

On Wednesday, September 11 Epic Games released the latest major patch for Fortnite and with it, saw the return of Greasy Grove to the Battle Royale map.

While some fans were excited by the new changes, Fortnite star Tfue couldn’t have been madder at the most recent update.

In a stream on the same date, the pro dropped into Greasy Grove and was wiped out early into the match, finishing 27th. This led to a heated reaction where he yelled “what the f*ck am I playing? I don’t want to land here.”

“Bro this place sucks, this place actually sucks,” he continued. Ranting about how not only Greasy Groves is a poor addition to the game, but Moisty Palms as well. “Dude honestly, Moisty Palms and Greasy Grove are f*cking trash.”

While the brand new Fortnite update saw the addition of those two areas, it came at a cost as Epic Games recently removed fan-favorite Borderlands themed region, Pandora. 

“I think Pandora was better than Greasy,” Tfue elaborated. “I think Pandora was better than Moisty Palms. Pandora being gone kind of makes me sad, if I’m being quite honest.”

Referring to constantly shifting locales in the game, he argues that “if you’re going to take out a good POI [Point Of Interest] like Pandora, at least put in a good POI to counteract it. They took out a good POI and added dogshit.”

Most POI’s typically only remain in the game for a matter of weeks as Epic Games constantly rotates new content in and out. Perhaps with the backlash from the former FaZe Clan member, Greasy Groves will be removed sooner rather than later.

Tfue’s rant begins at 2:11 for mobile users.

The Fortnite-related frustrations for Tfue have been immense recently as the pro had a falling out with former duo Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore, claiming that he cost him $140,000 for turning down a sponsor deal. 

Will the anger continue or will Tfue come to enjoy the latest patch? In one big positive move, Fortnite v10.30 also saw the introduction of Item Shop Voting, a new system that allows the community to vote on which particular items they’d like to see in the store soon.

Mr Beast giving $10,000 to whoever can ‘ratio’ him the hardest

In another wacky challenge, YouTuber Mr Beast has announced he will award $10,000 to whoever can ‘ratio’ him, or get the most likes in comparison to his tweet, with fandoms battling it out to have their fave crowned the winner.

Jimmy Donaldson a.k.a Mr Beast is well known for his grand scale challenges. And with 45 million subscribers on YouTube, he certainly has the means to facilitate them, often partnering up with his huge audience to make great things happen.

On the charitable front, one of Mr Beast’s most ambitious projects was ‘Team Trees,’ where he endeavored to raise the money required to plant 20,000,000 trees. He definitely succeeded, with over 500,000 unique users donating to the campaign.

Instagram: MrBeastMrBeast and his crew of over 600 YouTubers has raised over $20 million for Team Trees.

Among the philanthropy, Donaldson also previously set out to break some online records just for the fun of it. He set out to beat PewDiePie and have one of his videos become the most liked non-music video on YouTube. The video currently has a whopping 15 million likes.

With that in mind, he set his Twitter followers the task of ‘ratio-ing’ his original tweet. To ‘ratio’ someone means either for the number of comments to far outweigh the likes (usually when something is controversial,) or in this case to far outweigh the likes of the original tweet. Essentially, you have to get more likes than Mr Beast himself.

Originally, it looked like popular YouTuber Corpse Husband was going to win the money thanks to his reply tweet of a simple smiley face. Alongside the rise of Among Us, Corpse has experienced a huge surge in popularity in recent months, and said that he would be donating 100% of the money if won to charity.

However, just as it was looking as if Corpse would be sailing to victory unrivalled, a tweet from a BTS fan’s account saying “I know this is impossible but, If ever I win the funds will be directly donated to Funds for Bangtan and BorahaeFunds” began to pick up traction.

Their victory might not be as impossible as they first thought, with dedicated fans around the globe heading in droves to boost the tweet.

Mr Beast even joked “Hey Kpop fans, you about to let Minecraft youtubers show you up like this? Are they the new biggest fan base?”

At the time of writing, Mr Beast’s original tweet has 200,000 likes, Corpse Husband’s 233,000 likes, and BTS_History613’s tweet at 239,000. But with the numbers changing rapidly by the second, who the ultimate winner will be is yet unclear.
