Popular Fortnite Battle Royale players who get involved in teaming during scrims.

Tfue became the victim of “third partying”, where multiple players from different teams focus on killing one player, as he was practicing for the Fortnite World Cup online qualifers as a duo with teammate cloakzy.

The former FaZe member displayed the incredible mechanical skill that he is known for by qualifying for solos, but with only one week to make it through to the duos tournament, he began to get frustrated with the tactics of the other competitive players.

Instagram / TfueTfue and cloakzy are one of the most popular duos in Fortnite Battle Royale.

While practicing in Duo’s scrims against some of the top players in the region, Tfue found himself getting shot at by multiple teams as the storm was closing in and began to wonder why he was being singled out.

After looking back through the match in Replay Mode, cloakzy discovered that his teammate was being targeted by 10 players near the end of the game. He commented: “There’s two, four, six, eight, ten! There’s ten people spraying you and then Ghoul and Klass under us shot an RPG at you.”

Tfue was shocked as he watched all of the bullet trails spraying towards his character. and he took a moment before reacting to what he saw. Then, he shouted: “Bro, what the fuck am I looking at?”

Tfue then slammed the players who were only trying to kill him, saying: “All these dogshit players so desperate for this fucking kill.”

Noticing how close some of his pursuers were to each other, Tfue also explained how the current meta which enables players to build one-by-one structures on top of each other was being exploited to single him out.

“Look at these three mother fuckers, you guys are literally stacked,” He said before mocking the players for third-partying them, “Imma do one on the first floor, one on the second floor, one on the third floor. Let’s all shoot these together, you ready? Three, two, one, let’s go!”

He left the replay mode shortly after, clearly frustrated with the current meta and how it encourages team-shooting vulnerable players for elimination points, but not before adding that the players who were attempting to kill him were “fucking pussies.”

The Fortnite World Cup is expected to be the last competitive event Tfue will attend, which won’t come as a surprise to many fans given how vocal the streamer is about his distaste for the current competitive state of the game.

Tfue is expected to compete next at the Fortnite Pro-Am tournament on June 16, however, teaming up with LA Lakers basketball player, Josh Hart, for the Duos competition.

TikTok’s most-followed content creator, Charli D’Amelio, has invested in her very first startup, and it’s a $50 million mobile banking service specifically aimed at teenagers.

In true D’Amelio fashion, Charli has decided to invest in her first company, Step, along with a slew of other celebrity investors.

What is Step?

Step is a mobile banking service directed toward teenagers aged 13-19, which announced this morning that it has raised over $50 million during its Series B funding stage.

Step has grown to over 500,000 users in two months after its official launch, and features a variety of elements seen in apps like Venmo and PayPal, allowing users to send money to friends via peer-to-peer technology.

The service also offers its teen customer-base FDIC-insured bank accounts without any fees, easing their foray into the financial world. Step even gives users a Visa card that allows them to establish credit prior to turning 18.

As for Charli D’Amelio, she seems to be quite jazzed about the bank’s entire concept, having risen to prominence in the mobile world before turning 16 this year.

“As a Step partner and customer, I’ve been able to see firsthand how easy Step makes it to manage your money while providing the educational resources that today’s teens need but have largely been unable to find—myself included,” D’Amelio stated.

“I’m excited to be able to use my platform to help close this gap and have made a direct investment in Step to help them develop even more useful products.”

Charli isn’t the only big name putting some stock into Step; A-list celebs like Will Smith, the Chainsmokers, and Justin Timberlake are also investing in the bank, making for a truly star-studded affair for the emerging company.

Step is planning to partner with even more celebrities and influencers in the future, and hopes to help its teenaged customer-base with everything from student loans to building credit in the long-term.

Step aims to help teenagers ease into the confusing financial world.

“Student loans are a big thing. Being able to extend credit to these folks. Being able to offer new products and services so they’re not paying these outrageous, predatory banking fees and high interest credit cards,” Step CEO MacDonald said of the service.

It looks like Charli is making big waves with this major investment, and all eyes are peeled to see if her 101 million TikTok followers will hop onto the Step trend, too.
