The behavior of an Epic Games employee at the Fortnite World Cup has been questioned by the owner of Raised By Kings, claiming that they threatened to disqualify Theo ‘LeftEye’ Broman and mocked him at the event.

The Fortnite World Cup was a roaring success, with $30 million handed out to some of the world’s best players across a tournament which featured Creative, Solos and Duos competitions. 

It appears that LeftEye and Raised By Kings had an unfortunate run-in with Epic Games staff though, with the organization’s CEO Joao Nunes accusing an employee at the tournament of threatening to disqualify LeftEye and mocking him for breaking the strict rules about jerseys at the competition.

Twitter: ItsJosshALeftEye’s World Cup jersey caused issues, despite being cleared previously by Epic Games.

The Fortnite World Cup rules stated that any jerseys worn by players could only feature three logos, something that it appears Raised By Kings failed to abide by, leading to the alleged incident with an Epic Games employee.

Raised By Kings content creator JLove revealed that the issue was a tag on the bottom of his shirt, which included a small version of the organization’s logo, and the size of the jersey in a tweet just moments after the altercation.

With the offending logo situated on the bottom of the jersey, Nunes claims that the Swedish player offered to tuck his jersey into his pants, but was told to take it off or they would be disqualified, even though it had been passed as acceptable on media day.

Nunes went on to accuse the staff member of making fun of the pro player, who was forced to cut the offending piece at the bottom of his shirt off, writing on Twitter: “[Epic Games staff] proceeds to mock him for cutting his jersey off right before he goes on the stage.”

While Nunes was unhappy with the treatment his player was given at the World Cup, he refrained from revealing any more details about the incident between LeftEye and the Epic Games staff member. Dexerto have reached out to both parties for comment.

LeftEye finished the tournament in 41st place, taking home $50,000 for his efforts.

Fortnite Season 4 is now entering its final week, but before it wraps up, you’ve got one last batch of Challenges to get through in order to claim some huge last-minute experience.

After what feels like forever, the current Marvel-themed takeover is about to reach its conclusion. Galactus is hurtling towards the map, and the Nexus War is finally set for a major in-game event on December 1.

If you’re worried that you might not have time to fill out your Battle Pass before then, fear not. Epic Games has come through with more XP boosts this week than any week prior. You’ll be able to catch up and finish things off in no time thanks to this week’s XP Xtravaganza Challenges.

From where you’ll need to go and what you’ll need to do, we’ve got everything broken down. Here’s how you can complete Week 14’s XP offerings.

Foil skins for the current Marvel lineup will soon be gone forever.

There are a whopping 12 Challenges to get through this week, plenty to keep you busy. Many of these can be kept in the back of your mind while you focus on some of the more tricky ones. However, there’s nothing too complex here, so you should be able to get them all done in barely a few hours of playing.

Some Challenges ask you to use certain weapons and items. Be sure to track down Assault Rifles and Boogie Bombs in every game while keeping an eye out for vehicles as well.

One unique task requires you to keep your full health bar intact along with full shields. Obviously, this might need you to camp things out and play it safe. Eight minutes is the set time so try to find a safe spot, barricade yourself in, and wait this one through.

For more casual Challenges like fishing from a motorboat or riding zip lines to and from Upstate New York, your best bet could be to drop into some Team Rumble. Trying these in the standard Battle Royale playlists might prove frustrating. The full list of Week 14 Challenges can be found below.
