The FaZe pro, who is the highest-earning Fortnite player in the world, had been streaming on February 23 when he was sent a clip of NICKMERCS complimenting his skills and stating that he believes Tfue should be invited to the upcoming Fortnite World Cup.
When Tfue watched the clip of his fellow pro player complimenting his skills and giving him some really high praise, the FaZe pro couldn’t handle it - as his emotions became clear to see, as he even had to hold back tears.
In the clip, NICKMERCS stated that he believes that Tfue is the best Fortnite player in the world. “I think he’s the best, I think he’s the GOAT,” said the 100 Thieves pro, causing Tfue to blush and cover his face.
“What the fuck,” emotionally replied the FaZe star a few moments later, rubbing his eyes in the process - clearly surprised by what his fellow pro had just said about him. “Dude, NICKMERCS, love the guy,” said Tfue as he finished watching the clip.
Tfue further added: “That’s the nicest thing that anyone has ever said to me dude.”

His fellow pro may support him receiving an invite spot from Epic Games for the World Cup event, which has a mega $30 million prize pool, Tfue has hinted that he might not take part.
While he can say he might not participate and the whole thing may be enjoyable, the major Fortnite tournament wouldn't be the same without the highest-earning pro player.
