Fortnite star Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore addressed rumors of conflict with long-term teammate Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, after they didn’t team up in the July 13 trio tournament.

Cloak and Tfue are one of the most successful duos in Fortnite history, despite not qualifying for the World Cup, their victories at TwitchCon and other events have seen them scoop almost $1 million in prize money combined.

The duo were expected to partner with Team Liquid star Thomas ‘72hrs’ Mulligan in the first ever official trios tournament taking place on July 13-14. However, the team fell apart at the last minute with Tfue choosing to play with FaZe Clan’s Sway and Misfits Gaming’s Cody ‘Clix’ Conrad instead.

The decision took Cloak and 72hrs by surprise, with the pair both tweeting out they were looking for a trio to play with at the last minute.

It also took fans by surprise, who took to Reddit and social media to speculate about a possible rift between the two former FaZe Clan stars.

While playing with fellow streamer Ben ‘DrLupo’ Lupo, the Cloak addressed the rumors of conflict that emerged on Reddit, claiming the split was a result of conflicting schedules – not because there was any “drama”.

Questioned whether there was real drama between him and Tfue, Cloak said: “Me and Tom normally played. But Turner gets on at like 11pm. I still thought we were going to play together but he texted me in the morning saying he’s going to play with these guys.

“Me and Tom normally practice everyday until like 11, and then Turner would hop on at like 11.”

FaZe CloakCloak and Tfue competed with brand new trio teams.

On the day of the tournament, Epic Games announced a shocking change after failing to fix a bug that had appeared in the trio mode, perhaps suggesting their servers can’t currently handle so many elite level players together.

If that’s the case, we may not be seeing trios in future tournaments, meaning it’s more than likely we’ll see Tfue and Cloak reunited very soon.

SypherPK finds his own secret easter egg in Fortnite Season 5

Fortnite sensation SypherPK made a public request a few weeks back and Epic Games seem to have heard him loud and clear as the content creator was stunned by his very own secret easter egg in Season 5.

As one of the most popular Fortnite content creators, SypherPK has millions of fans that listen to his every word. As it turns out, a few developers are among those avid viewers. A request made on November 2 has finally made an impact, thanks to those at Epic Games who tuned into his video.

Members of his community were pleading for SypherPK to receive his own in-game reference. Whether it’s a small poster somewhere on the map, or even an entire Point of Interest referring back to his name. However, the YouTuber had something else in mind.

“We need something that’s very simple,” he said. “We want to add a book to Fortnite. A ‘How to Win’ book,” based on one of his most popular series. Well with the arrival of a brand new season, SypherPK’s wish has come true.

“They actually did it,” he shared on December 2. One of the first things he did in Season 5 was check the weather station. Even to his surprise, the developers had listened to his request and actually followed through.

“This is my creation,” he said in shock upon discovering a vibrant red book exactly where he requested one to be. While it doesn’t reference the ‘How to Win’ series in any way, Sypher was overjoyed at the fact his community had “added something to the game.”

There’s now a physical item in-game thanks to a video he made back in November. Not only that, but the book has been special in a few ways. For starters, physics are applied to the object, so it properly bounces around and moves as you’d expect it to. The book is also invincible, meaning players can’t go about destroying Sypher’s unique creation.

It’s one of the more subtle easter eggs in Fortnite. If you weren’t an active fan of Sypher before Season 5, you wouldn’t be aware of this secret at all. But for those in the know, it’s a special little reference just for his community.

Obviously, the easter egg has no real influence on the game, so don’t track it down expecting some kind of buff or secret item to come along with it. But it’s clearly a sign that developers are always keeping tabs on the biggest content creators.

We’ve seen Icon Series skins and now subtle easter eggs. Who knows what we’ll be seeing next.
