Deaf Twitch streamer and Fortnite Battle Royale pro player Ewok got a chance to play with her favorite streamers Tyler ‘Ninja‘ Blevins, Ben ‘DrLupo‘ Lupo and Ryan ‘Chap‘ Chaplo.

The year 2019 has been kind to Ewok, a 13-year-old deaf Twitch streamer and aspiring Fortnite Battle Royale pro. She exploded in popularity when streamer Tim ‘TimTheTatman‘ Betar hosted her after his stream and thousands of viewers quickly fell in love with her.

Outside of some controversy with somebody impersonating her on Twitter, everything has been uphill for her this year.

NinjaNinja is sharing the wealth of viewers with Ewok.

Have YOU played Fortnite with Ninja?

To cap her meteoric rise, she got to debut her skills in front of the largest audience she’s ever had as she got into a Squads session with Ninja, DrLupo and Chap.

With more eyes on her than ever, she was able to show she has the skills to hang with some of the best the game has to offer.

This doesn’t mean she didn’t have her geek out moments when she took a second to look at just who she was playing with.

While she may only be 13-years-old, she has proven she can be really skillful at Fortnite Battle Royale. She displayed some of that skill during the stream with pretty slick and clean snipes.

The clip below shows her reviving Chap in the storm before absolutely obliterating another player with two snipes.

One player who went against Ewok and her squad helped spell out her name, showing their appreciation for her as a player.

It was quite the milestone for Ewok and the players she was with certainly enjoyed playing with her. Ninja went as far as calling her awesome.

The only thing that would make Ewok’s year even better would be getting signed to an esports organization, something she has her eyes set on.


Fortnite Baba Yaga skin release date leaked

The release date of Fortnite’s Baba Yaga skin has been leaked ahead of time, and it’s not all that too far away.

With Halloween being just around the corner, Epic Games have activated their annual Fortnitemares celebrations. The yearly event has brought changes to the battle royale island, as well as the ability to play as a shadow while your teammate is still alive in a match. 

Though given its Halloween, and players want to dress in new skins, the devs have brought back some classic looks – including the Skull Trooper – while also releasing some brand new cosmetics like Party Trooper and the Bone Squad.

Yet, one of the spookiest skins, Baba Yaga, is still yet to hit the Item Shop. The skin takes its name and look from the classic eastern European folk tale about a terrifying-looking old woman.

Fortnitemares always brings some new skins to the battle royale.

The skin was leaked prior to the recent Fortnitemares update by a number of data miners, though, the wait has been on ever since, with players hoping to see it in the Item Shop.

Well, that wait isn’t going to last all that much longer, as leaker ShiinaBR posted that, according to their reliable source, it will be available as a part of the Item Shop rotation on Monday, October 26. 

In the leaks, the skin is labeled as being ‘Rare’ so, it should set you back around between 1200 and 1600 V Bucks. 

Obviously, while Shiina has posted tonnes of reliable information in the past, the final say, of course, goes to Epic Games and they could very well change their mind and put a different skin in the Item Shop.

That might seem like a bit of an extreme move, changing dates just because one has been leaked, but there are plenty of skins that have been leaked in the past that are still nowhere to be seen.
