FaZe Clan have revealed the newest member of their professional team for Fortnite: Battle Royale.

The powerhouse esports organization has announced BR player Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney as the fourth member of FaZe Fortnite.

Tfue joins a star studded roster that also includes Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore, Thang ‘SpaceLyon’ Pham, and Brendan ‘Jaomock’ O’Brien.

The roster move was announced on April 30th via a post on the official FaZe twitter account, along with a clip introducing the new player and some of his best gameplay.

Tfue also had this to tweet out in reaction to the announcement of his move to the FaZe pro Fortnite team.

This sort of news was expected after former player Thomas ’72hrs’ Mulligan was released from the team days ago.

However, FaZe decided to have some fun with the roster changes, initially announcing that their new fourth was going to be popular YouTuber Bryan ‘RiceGum’ Le.

The joke was quite elaborate as FaZe, RiceGum, and the other players on the team all made some sort of post on social media about the surprising move, with the YouTuber even assuming the new name ‘FortGum.’

Unfortunately, as hilarious as it would have been, this new team was never to be as FaZe Clan announced FortGum’s retirement from professional Fortnite in a comical tweet.

It’s been a long time coming, but now Fortnite players can be put at ease: Epic are working on pre-edit changes to make building easier after years of the community petitioning.

Pre-editing has been a contentious issue in the Fortnite community for years. They’re on for all players, and helps players quickly place a lot of edited builds.

However, most players don’t use pre-editing, so its existence ends up being a hindrance more than anything. It can leave players exposed due to a poor build, something they weren’t intending at the time.

Pre-edits have been the bane of Fortnite players across the world. Thankfully, Epic are working on disabling them.

A new rallying cry across the community comes across with every new season, pleading with Epic to at least give player the option to disable pre-edits. While they’ve been dodging the issue for quite some time, there’s finally been some solid news.

After a year of uncertainty with Epic stating they were “actively considering” it, they’ve now set their course on giving the community what they want.

“We don’t have an exact timetable, but we’re going to [add a disable pre-edit option],” community coordinator TheStevieT told players on Reddit.

It comes after more clips of players dying because of their pre-edited builds went viral across Reddit and other social media platforms. It’s quite the common occurrence, and with Epic now solidifying their stance, it’s got players excited.

That being said, it could be a little while before it’s added. They’ve started work, but without an exact timetable in mind, it could be seasons down the line. One can hope that it’ll be added in Chapter 2 Season 5 at the end of 2020 though.

Another Epic staffer, gstaffEpic, clarified that such a change isn’t in any of the Fortnite builds yet. However, it’s getting close, and it’s something they’re “working towards.”

It might not be the most explosive subject, but as far as quality of life changes go, this could completely transform the way Fortnite is played. We will update you once more information arises.
