Professional Fortnite player and FaZe Clan member Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney tried out the new in-game ‘tournament’ mode recently, but the pro player was not impressed whatsoever.
Tournament mode is the latest playlist addition to Fortnite, challenging players to various different competitive matches in Solos, Duos and Squads.
It allows aspiring competitive players an opportunity to try their hand at something a little more serious than regular matches, and doesn’t force the use of third party websites, running tournaments or wager matches of their own.
However, Tfue doesn’t think that Epic Games have executed the system as well as they could have, calling the on-going solo mode “shit”.
Currently, the only option available is the ‘Alpha’ tournament, which is a solo based game type which runs from October 16 – October 21.
But, when a viewer sarcastically commented on how entertaining it was, Tfue said “yeh, this tournament fucking sucks dude. It’s not really fun to watch, it’s definitely not fun to play. It’s basically just shit.”
There is still a lot of other tournaments to come, with the first Duos event starting on October 23, called the ‘Bets’ tournament.
There will also be the first iteration of Friday Night Fortnite on October 19, which will be a squad tournament ran every week.
But, with not a great deal to play for currently, for someone like Tfue specifically these tournament game types may not have enough flair, especially when streaming to tens of thousands of people.
