Ever since the release of the Fortnite v8.20 update, pretty much every streamer and pro has been calling for Epic Games to revert the patch. Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney thinks this patch is good for the game and explains his reasoning.

Just like how Fortnite patch 7.40 will go down as one of the best-received updates in the game, v8.20 will go down in infamy as one of the more controversial patches Fortnite has ever come out with.

Streamers like Ninja, Daequan, TimTheTatman, dakotaz and many more have all become outspoken critics of patch v8.20 and have been asking for it to be reverted, pretty much ever since it came out.

As it turns out, not every Fortnite player is completely against the patch. FaZe Clan member Tfue has actually been a vocal supporter of Epic Games introducing this patch and doesn’t want it reverted.

This is a weird turn of events as Tfue is one of the top players in Fortnite and is certainly someone you’d expect to see upset by these changes. It’s not like he’s saying this just to play devil’s advocate, he does have reasons from being against a revert.

Reasons why Tfue is against a revert

Many of the criticisms you see are players complaining that the game is going backward now that health and materials per elimination are gone but Tfue argues that is good for the long-term health of Fortnite. 


“I hate almost every single update and I honestly think this is the only good one they’ve done,” he said. “I literally said before they added it to the game. Public regular playlists should not have health per kill, should not have mats per kill. That shit does not belong in public games at all.”

FaZe ClanTfue likes the changes Fortnite made with v8.20.

The removal of that feature was what was focused on the most by players but Tfue thinks it’s actually the best part of the patch.

“The only people that are gonna complain about it are the people that are getting hit,” he said. “Listen, buddy, how about you get good at the game and don’t get hit, then you don’t have to deal with it.”


He then goes on to say that he wants longevity and reverting that change was probably the best thing Epic could’ve done.
