FaZe Tfue has shot down the idea that he only blew up because he killed Ninja on Fortnite and if you believe that, he thinks you’re “actually stupid.”

In a defensive rant during a Twitch livestream yesterday, Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney seemed bemused by the suggestion that his success on the streaming platform was down to one solitary kill – as people had suggested in the chat.

“Dude, if you think that i blew up because I killed Ninja, you’re fucking actually stupid,” He said. “How does it even make any sense at all? People fucking kill Ninja a hundred times a stream, they kill me a hundred times a stream.

Eric Ananmalay/ESPAT MediaNinja became the face of Fortnite and Twitch in 2018.

“All of the streamers that kill us, the majority of them, don’t have a lot of viewers and they’re not going to gain a shit tonne of viewers because of that. That doesn’t make any sense. It’s literally dumb.”

As he calmed down towards the end of the clip, he said that only ‘dumb’ people think that it’s possible to kill one big streamer and get more viewers, and that those people can ‘suck his ass’.

Tenney teased a hiatus from Fortnite earlier this month, having grown frustrated with the game’s Solo mode. He has been directing his anger towards a lack of a skill gap within the game mode as well as the strength of the RNG (Random Number Generator).

Conversely, Ninja recently voiced his frustrations with players like Tfue for constantly complaining about a game that is making them so much money, which could be a reason the question came up in the stream.


Fortnite Baba Yaga skin release date leaked

The release date of Fortnite’s Baba Yaga skin has been leaked ahead of time, and it’s not all that too far away.

With Halloween being just around the corner, Epic Games have activated their annual Fortnitemares celebrations. The yearly event has brought changes to the battle royale island, as well as the ability to play as a shadow while your teammate is still alive in a match. 

Though given its Halloween, and players want to dress in new skins, the devs have brought back some classic looks – including the Skull Trooper – while also releasing some brand new cosmetics like Party Trooper and the Bone Squad.

Yet, one of the spookiest skins, Baba Yaga, is still yet to hit the Item Shop. The skin takes its name and look from the classic eastern European folk tale about a terrifying-looking old woman.

The skin was leaked prior to the recent Fortnitemares update by a number of data miners, though, the wait has been on ever since, with players hoping to see it in the Item Shop.

Well, that wait isn’t going to last all that much longer, as leaker ShiinaBR posted that, according to their reliable source, it will be available as a part of the Item Shop rotation on Monday, October 26. 

In the leaks, the skin is labeled as being ‘Rare’ so, it should set you back around between 1200 and 1600 V Bucks. 

Obviously, while Shiina has posted tonnes of reliable information in the past, the final say, of course, goes to Epic Games and they could very well change their mind and put a different skin in the Item Shop.

That might seem like a bit of an extreme move, changing dates just because one has been leaked, but there are plenty of skins that have been leaked in the past that are still nowhere to be seen.
