Ali-A reveals potential fishing changes in Fortnite Coral Castle update

YouTube star Ali-A has highlighted a few things that might not be too apparent to Fortnite players following the addition of the new Coral Castle POI. 

Over the course of Chapter 2, Season 3, Epic Games have been making subtle changes to the Fortnite map by lowering the water. Popular landing spots like Risky Reels, Dirty Docks, and Slurpy Swamp are all pretty much back to normal, but they’ve also added a brand new location.

Coral Castle was added on August 1, taking up the spot where the giant Whirlpool had sat. Leaks pointed to this being Atlantis, but it doesn’t quite bear the same resemblance to Aquaman’s home from the comics or movies. 

Though, the new location might just contain a few subtle hints for new updates that could be released further down the line.

Coral Castle took the spot many expected to see Atlantis in.

Popular Fortnite content creator Ali-A pointed out that the location has a giant gold flopper statue on the balcony of one of the small buildings. But, that’s not all.

There are also fish sat in fishbowl small plinths dotted around the different buildings. You can destroy the small plinths, but you won’t get a flopper or any other loot for it. Though, that could come later down the line.

The YouTuber notes that there are apparently new fish, as well as a fishing book to keep a log of your catches, coming in the future. His theory points to these small fish being set free in the future and becoming catchable. 

Outside of that theory, he also noted that if you complete the spaceship challenges behind Craggy Cliffs, you will be able to use rifts. That’s right, rifts are back – if only in a small way.

Now, there’s no real way of telling whether or not Epic will release the fish or the rifts on a wider scale, but the theory is plausible.

We’ll just have to wait and see what happens.


Tfue finally reveals why he quit Fortnite after 2 years of “crankin 90s”

One of the biggest Fortnite streamers ever, Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, revealed why he quit the game that amassed him millions of followers and a lucrative streaming career.

Since Fortnite’s battle royale component was released, the 22-year-old has been one of the most consistent content creators around the title. As for skill, at one time he was hailed as the best player, which only skyrocketed his popularity on Twitch.

But after years of speaking out against design decisions and the subsequent release of Warzone, Tfue left behind his main source of content – sporadically popping back into Fortnite since.

Only lightly talking about his Fortnite absence in the past, Tfue opened up about why he left on the ‘Brand Risk Podcast’ and how he’s expanded from the game since making the decision.

Tfue was a huge figure in the Fortnite scene. He’s pictured here making an appearance at the Fortnite World Cup.

“Two years of cranking 90s was just too much,” Tfue said. “I had to spice it up and play other things. Plus, I felt like I milked the game so much that, like, me playing it was almost digging myself into a pit.”

When he first started uploading YouTube videos on Fortnite, he called it one of the “easiest and most polished” battle royales in the market at the time. That was largely true, as audiences from all age and skill groups eagerly hopped on to try it out.

But as his popularity slowly grew on Twitch, he saw that Fortnite started to become a job instead of the title that consumed his gaming life.

“I got to the point where the only reason I was playing it was for viewers and for my career,” he explained. “I just stopped caring about that and felt like I milked Fortnite for all that was worth, considering I was blowing up at the peak of it.”

Tfue feels Fortnite “will die down, but (never) actually die,” and he’s already deep into games like Warzone to hold him over. Other bigtime streamers like DrLupo, CouRage, and Myth have also been separating from Epic Games’ battle royale, something we’re seeing more and more.

While he made a name for himself on the Fortnite island, Tfue has been exploring greener pastures to take his streaming career to the next phase.
