Fortnite player Tinny following accusations of domestic abuse from his ex-girlfriend that have since been deleted.

UPDATE: Tinny released a video on March 26 where he discussed the allegations made against him and provided evidence that refuted them. 


The original claims made against the player have since been retracted and deleted by KilluaKiII.

“I immediately contacted my solicitor when this began to have these false claims removed and retracted,” he says. “My ex decided she’s done enough damage and could try to hide from the consequences of her illegal and malicious actions by deleting her defamatory tweets and saying nothing. I will continue to pursue legal action until my name is cleared.”


Original article:

The allegations began on Saturday, March 9, when Twitter user KilluaKill began to tweet about her ex-boyfriend, and specifically mentioned that he was a member of FlyQuest.

In a statement released by Killua, she said that Tinny “broke her down”throughout her six-year relationship, forcing her to leave university and making sure she was isolated and financially dependent on him. The statement said that he was “disgustingly abusive, both physically and mentally,” and that reports had been made to the police.


In the aftermath of the allegations, FlyQuest released a statement saying that they had “decided to part ways with Tinny,” following discussions between the player and the organization.

“We want to follow up in regards to the situation arising yesterday involving one of our Fortnite players,” they said. “After investigating and discussing with the player in question, we both decided it was in our best interests to part ways. We thank Tinny for his time at FlyQuest.”

FlyQuest released a statement announcing that they had parted ways with Tinny.

In a now deleted tweet, Killua stated that her ex-boyfriend is taking legal action against her and that she is worried that, due to her lack of financial independence, she will be unable to fight against him.


She says she intends to fight the legal proceedings though, writing: “If this is going to be made into a legal matter, I know where I stand. I have enough evidence that this man could face a prison sentence. I’m going to be strong and not let him bully me into silence again.”

Killua claims that years of domestic abuse have left her unable to “function like a normal human or do basic things,” stating that she is a “shell of the person” that she was.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.


With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.


As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.

As always, Epic Games will be hosting their own broadcast for the FNCS Season 4 events, complete with commentary and analysis to make sure you catch all the action as it happens. You can check out the official Fortnite FNCS stream on their official Twitch channel, which has been embedded below.


FNCS Season 4 dates

FNCS Season 4 will run across four weeks ⁠— three weeks of qualifiers, and one week for finals. If you want to sign yourself up, these are the dates you need to know.

  • FNCS Week 1: October 9 – October 11
  • FNCS Week 2: October 16 – October 18

The first day of each week will be an open qualifier. If you make the top 33 teams, you’ll be invited to play in the next two days for a chance to make it to the Finals.


FNCS isn’t the only competition coming to Fortnite Season 4. Weekly Cash Cups for Solos and Trios will be returning, while the Dreamhack Online Open (Solo) will also take place across NA and Europe.

With players set to earn up to $111,000 for winning the whole tournament, you can rest assured that there will be plenty of action when the action kicks off.
