Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop and Ben ‘DrLupo’ Lupo were once some of the biggest Fortnite streamers in the world – but now they’ve revealed why they stopped playing the game.

Fortnite paved the way for many of today’s biggest content creators to make something much more for themselves, and this is something Lupo happily admits during his appearance on The CouRage and Nadeshot Show, but as more and more of the biggest names move away from the popular battle royale title, many simply want to know why.

Now, the Fornite World Cup casting duo have revealed exactly why they’ve stopped playing the game.

Lupo and Dunlop casted the record-breaking Fortnite World Cup together.

After a funny and awkward introduction from Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag, who says the two “rinsed it for everything it could give [you],” CouRage started to explain why he stopped playing.

He said: “I would literally go insane if I was trying to play that game like I once did. I just mentally can no longer do two-minute build battles with skill-based matchmaking for no return. It just doesn’t do it for me anymore.”

DrLupo agreed with Dunlop, saying it is “hard to play the same thing every single day for forever.” He compared it to games such as Call of Duty, which at least get a new iteration each year, adding that “the audience became saturated with it as well.”

Lupo goes on to explain that he got his first casting experience with Fortnite, and shows off some of the incredible collectibles he picked up during his time playing the game – including a Lego Rainbow Smash pickaxe that cost him $5,000.

Both Lupo and Dunlop mention that they “still love the game,” the latter adding he can still go on and enjoy Fortnite sometimes, but no longer in the way he could throughout 2018.

They also said that they would still be interested in casting if the opportunity presented itself but, with the likes of Warzone and Valorant being so popular right now, we’re not sure they’ll be heading back to Fortnite any time soon.

Just days ahead of Fortnite’s Galactus live event on December 1, data-miners have leaked a highly anticipated Galactus skin without spoiling event details. 

Galactus, the “Devourer of Worlds,” has been approaching Fortnite’s island and his unavoidable arrival is finally nigh. In a one-time-only, live Season 4 “Nexus War” finale on December 1, Marvel’s world-eater and Epic Games’ player base will collide. 

While fans currently know that the gigantic, cosmic entity is making his way to the Island and that something will be happening on the aforementioned date at 4 p.m. ET, few details are available.

Fortunately for impatient aficionados of the battle royale, dataminers have leaked a Galactus skin that should be coming to the game’s shop with a bundle at some point.

The Galactus skin doesn’t seem massive, but it’s definitely spooky.

While it’s unclear exactly how similar this skin will be to the teased images of a gargantuan, shadowy Galactus shared by Epic themselves, the skin most certainly presents an imposing figure. 

Dressed in glistening jet black and red, the skin features regal, villainous armor bookended by chunky boots and a massive helmet. Eagle-eyed fans might even notice a particularly smug smile sitting across the infamous villain’s purple face.

It remains uncertain if this skin will be available for purchase and, if so, when it will be. But leakers like ‘ximton’ have discovered files indicating it could be part of a bundle. Still, in order to save fans from leaks, dataminers have remained largely quiet about specific event details.

Fortnite Galactus event – what we know so far

A variety of leaks have already surfaced, showing a gigantic Galactus and teasing the possibilities of a major battle between Marvel’s heroes and the cosmic world-eater. But Epic Games have tried to keep things on the low, only confirming that “the fate of all Reality lies in the balance.”

As mentioned earlier, the finale event begins on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT, 9 p.m. GMT) and its exact duration is unknown. Epic have advised players to download the latest update (14.60) and Houseparty (which is integrated with Fortnite to allow for live video chat).
