One of the world’s best Fortnite pro players received a permanent account ban at the hands of Epic Games.

FaZe Clan’s TFUE is widely regarded as one of the top talents in the Fortnite Battle Royale world, but that didn’t stop the developers hitting him with the ban hammer.

His impressive skills at the world’s most popular game have earned him a huge following, but alongside the fame, he has been involved in his fair share of controversy.

The latest incident involves a permanent ban of his primary Fortnite account, for what was originally believed to be because he had been performing a glitch in game on purpose.

TFUE’s teammate, Cloakzy, had incorrectly advised his viewers that TFUE had received the perm ban for exploiting on stream.

With a number of other high profile personalities accused of doing the same thing, questions were asked on Reddit about why TFUE had received this treatment.

As it turned out, it had nothing to do with exploits, but actually to do with buying Fornite accounts, which is heavily against the terms of service of the title.

One Epic Games employee responded to the discussion on Reddit to clarify the situation.

“Account selling or purchasing violates our EULA. Tfuewas aware of this and engaged in that activity anyway. He was also notified of the reason for his account ban, but did not disclose that information to his viewers while streaming.”

At the time of writing TFUE is streaming Fortnite again via an alternative account. He advised his viewers during a brief Q&A that he’s over skins so doesn’t mind having to use standard ones.

How to compete in Fortnite’s first Box Fight Tournament: date, prizes

Fortnite is about to launch its first-ever Box Fight Tournament, a creative 1v1 competition in an arena designed by winners of last month’s Princess Castle Creative Contest. If you’re interested in competing, here’s everything you need to know.

Fortnite is a competitive game at heart, but it’s also a wonderful platform for creative players. It’s the reason why the creative mode is so popular. Players can build their own islands and share them with others.

Last month, Fortnite celebrated its third birthday by hosting the Princess Castle Creative Contest. Essentially, players had to create and submit their own version of a Box Fight map.

For those who don’t know, Box Fighting is when two players are fighting within one tile of each other and inside a box. It’s unique in the sense that it combines competitive and creative skills.

Two players named HassanFTN and Shride won the contest. Their arena, named “Island of Dreams” (9005-6737-3429), was chosen to be showcased in the first official Box Fight Tournament.

How to compete in the Box Fight Tournament

To compete in the Box Fight Tournament, all you need to do is look for the Box Fight Tournament LTM on the main menu once it’s available.

However, there is an eligibility requirement. Players will need to have reached Open League (Division II) in Arena before the tournament begins. Don’t stress if you haven’t though. It’s very easy to do and will only take a couple of games.

The format is pretty straightforward. Players will duke it out in a one on one Box Fight against other players in their region.

It will follow a traditional tournament structure with multiple rounds. The more rounds you win, the higher you will climb. The player with the most wins at the end of the tournament is the winner.

Box Fighting requires calculated attacks and solid defense.

When does the Box Fight Tournament start?

Fortnite players don’t need to wait long. The Box Fight Tournament begins on Wednesday, October 28, which means it’s only one sleep away.

However, that also means if you haven’t ranked up enough in Arena to be eligible, you’ll need to hop in and get started before it’s too late.

Box Fighting is an important skill in Fortnite. In many ways, it’s what separates the wolves from the sheep.

If you’ve mastered it, the tournament is a good way to test your skills. Don’t be disheartened if you haven’t though. Taking part in the tournament is a good way to improve.
