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.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
