FaZe Fortnite pro Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has hinted that he might not take part in the Fortnite World Cup Finals - despite its massive, $30 million prize pool.

Tenney discussed the issue during a stream on February 22, where he reacted to a clip of streamer NickMercs arguing that Tfue should be invited to the tournament without having to play through qualifiers.

Tfue claimed that he would have a better chance of qualifying if not for his occupation as a full-time streamer, as his gameplay footage is widely available for players to study in advance.

“The majority of the players going versus us know where I play, know where I land,” Tfue said of the issue. “They know how I do things. It’s not the fucking same.”

The pro went on to speculate that he might not qualify at all due to the problem, and admitted that he isn’t a fan of the Cup’s style of competition.

“That’s not the [competition] that I like,” Tfue continued. “It’s gonna be wack.”

While Tfue plans to wear random skins and play off-stream to help better his chances, it doesn’t seem like one of Fortnite’s most popular players is looking forward to the Cup - which boasts one of esports’ most historic prize pools of all time.
