Professional CS:GO player Oleksandr ‘Fortnite Battle Royale

The Ukranian is widely considered as one of the best Counter-Strike: Global Offensive players in the world, and has started to play Fortnite Battle Royale as part of his popular Twitch streams.

S1mple has been playing the game for less than the week, but some of the game’s mechanics, or lack thereof, are starting to frustrate the Na’Vi AWPer.

StarladderS1mple has started playing Fortnite Battle Royale during his Twitch streams.

While playing with professional Fortnite Battle Royale competitor Erikas ‘ErycTriceps’ Vaitkevicius, s1mple was disappointed to hear that he couldn’t change his reticle, and aired his grievances about how the game’s chance loot system means players can get an advantage early on.

“In the beginning, the one who’s got the biggest shield is winning, if you know how to shoot,” the Ukranian said. “Of course we can build, but we have no [wood] in the beginning.”

S1mple is also unimpressed with the game’s lack of customizable crosshairs. Upon finding out that everyone is forced to use the same one, he said: “That’s so bad”. 

For the Na’Vi star, the fact that the settings are locked in Fortnite Battle Royale is a far cry from Counter-Strike where players can adjust and change tiny details like screen resolutions.

While CS:GO is the NaVi member’s game of choice, he has proved that his incredible skill transfers from one game to the other, even managing to secure a few wins in his first day on the battle royale title.

He still has a lot to learn though, as shown in a hilarious moment when S1mple jumped off a Slipstream without realizing that he needed Glider Redeploy to land safely. 

While teammate ErycTriceps floated with ease, the Ukranian slammed into the ground and needed his giggling teammate to revive him.

With NaVi not currently scheduled to take part in any upcoming tournaments in June, S1mple will have plenty of time to practice on Fortnite Battle Royale before he has to turn his attention back to CS:GO.

Fortnite players know all too well what it’s like to land in a hot spot and struggle to find a weapon, including TimTheTatMan, who hilariously rage quit after he found nothing but fishing rods.

Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar has jumped back on the Fortnite bandwagon in Season 5. The latest update has brought a lot of old stars back, and for the most part, the reception has been positive.

In Tim’s case though, it hasn’t been all sunshine and roses. He wanted to enjoy everything the new season has to offer. Instead, all he got was fishing rods and lots of them.

TimTheTatman is a talented gamer in his own right, but he’s also hilarious to watch.

TimTheTatman descended onto Salty Towers with his squad, looking for an ideal place to land. Unfortunately, the two vacant rooftops he saw both had fishing rods. “Oh good, a fishing pole, oh good, another fishing pole, okay,”  he said.

He decided to land on a house instead. “If I come in here and there’s a fishing pole, I’m leaving,” he said while breaking into the attic with his pickaxe. “I’m literally not kidding. I’m backing out if there’s a fishing pole in here.”

Fortunately, there wasn’t one in the attic, but there was nothing else either, so he dove a little deeper. He dropped down the staircase, turned left it into the kitchen, and hilariously found another fishing rod staring into his soul.

It’s not ideal to find a fishing rod as your first weapon in Fortnite.

Without saying a word, TimTheTatman opened up the menu, quit the game, and placed his hands on his head in disbelief. “I’m not doing it,” he said, as he struggled to find the words to sum up his rage.

“The two guns I was going to land on [were] fishing poles,” he added. “I open up a door and go left, fishing pole. I’ll try again. When you guys are done, I’ll be ready to go again. I’m not going to play that game. I’m not going to do it.”

There’s nothing worse than landing in a spot surrounded by enemies and finding nothing useful.

Still, TimTheTatman’s fans were rolling on the floor laughing after seeing him get so riled up about it. Plus, the fact it happened to be a fishing rod made it even funnier.
