As Fortnite Battle Royale developers have been incorporating user feedback, concepts, and suggestions new ideas continue to reach the forefront, like this awesome new skin concept. 

The popular battle royale has seen enormous growth in users, revenue, and exposure since the game mode released in September of 2017.

Fans love the consistent release of new character skins, emotes, gliders, harvesting tools, and other gear that provide a fresh experience for gamers.

Other user concepts such as the ‘Jailbirds’ gear set, featuring bank robbers, have been implemented into the game and met with a warm welcome.

A Reddit suggestion from Raydents proposed a unique skin featuring a lot of orange in a way that players might be on board with.

The skin and all of the other gear is being named ‘Orange Juice’ in this concept, but if were to be implemented there would undoubtedly be some name changes for the various items. 

Reddit users seem to be excited about the idea, and given the similarity in reception to the ‘Tomatohead’ skin concept, there is little doubt that fans would buy it.

While it remains just a suggestion, it is possible that we could see ‘Orange Juice’ make its way into Fortnite in the future.

Fortnite World Cup winner Aqua allegedly banned for FNCS stream-sniping

Fortnite World Cup champion and Season 4 FNCS competitor, David ‘aqua’ Wang has been accused of stream-sniping and subsequently been punished by an alleged ban by Epic Games.

At 17 years old, aqua represented his home country of Austria to the fullest by winning the 2019 Fortnite World Cup’s Duos event with Norway’s Emil ‘Nyhrox’ Bergquist. With a smooth $1.5 million earned from the World Cup, he’s since signed with Cooler Esport and continued to win competitions across Europe.

Most recently, aqua’s trio (with Rezon and Noahreyli) have been participating in FNCS Europe and, following the Week 3 semis, have been accused of stream-sniping another popular trio: Benjy ‘Benjyfishy’ Fish, Martin ‘MrSavage’ Andersen, and Kevin ‘LeTsHe’ Fedjuschkin.

Although fans initially deemed aqua’s behavior suspicious, things quickly escalated. With Benjyfishy’s team unable to qualify for the Week 3 finals and the discovery that aqua was watching MrSavage’s stream during the competition, the controversy has spiraled.

Following condemnations of the World Cup winner’s team, rumors began circulating that aqua, Rezon, and Noahreyli had been banned by Epic Games from participating past the first match of the Finals. 

Although many fans were delighted to hear the news, it was never officially legitimized and has since been made even more unclear by responses from some of the involved parties.

After the rumor mill buzzed with the reports that aqua’s team was banned from competing, he took to Twitter and gave a concise clarification denying those allegations: “We are not banned, we just don’t wanna play. It’s boring without early fighting Benjy.”

Given the difficulty inherent to confirming someone was in fact stream-sniping and didn’t coincidentally run into a fellow streamer, many believe it is unlikely that the World Cup winner has actually been exiled from the competition.

Additionally, some have noted that bans typically result in removal from the leaderboard, something that aqua’s team has not been hit with.

 

As for how the players are handling it, aqua and Benjyfishy have simply joked about the incident for hours. Neither side appears to be nearly as angry as some fans have been, instead, laughing at the drama and sharing memes.

 

While whatever’s going on behind the scenes may remain unclear, all players involved are more than good enough to qualify for the Season 4 FNCS Finals at some point, if they haven’t already, so it seems that no one’s really that bothered by the situation, ban or no ban.

We will continue to update this article with more details as they become available.
