While Fortnite crim lobbies are usually filled with very strategic play, one streamer accidentally ended up in one and completely flipped the script on everyone.

Epic Games has yet to add custom games to Fortnite Battle Royale, which has forced the pro community to play scrims in public lobbies by queuing up at the same time as one another.

Twitch streamer and podcaster ‘MonsterDFace’ was playing some duos with a friend on stream when he managed to somehow queue up at the same time as the pros and ended up in FaZe Clan’s Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney’s scrim lobby.

MonsterDFace hops into the game without having any idea what he was getting himself into when a member of his chat informed him that he’s in a scrim lobby.

“I accidentally queued into a scrim lobby,” says MonsterDFace about the situation. “Basically, the lobby we queued into was Tfue’s. What he does is host these scrim lobbies where people go in and get sweaty.”

Rather than stick to the competitive meta of playing very defensive, the duo decides to run head first into the action at every turn, leaving a trail of bodies in their wake.

After landing in Retail Row and picking up a handful of the kill, the pair rotates around the map and end up right in the middle of one of the final circles.

Epic GamesFortnite players frequently use scrims as a way to practice in a competitive environment.

With only five players left in the game, both MonsterDFace and ‘Connoreo’ were taken out, leaving the duo with a third-place finish and 18 kills.

Both seemed to take it in good fun, however, simply laughing at the fact that they managed to end up in a scrim game and finish with almost 20 kills, an impressive feat in a scrim environment.

Fortnite World Cup winner Aqua banned from FNCS by Epic Games

Fortnite World Cup champion David ‘aqua’ Wang has been banned by Epic Games, following controversy over alleged stream sniping against FNCS opponents.

Aqua’s trio (with Rezon and Noahreyli) have been participating in FNCS Europe and, following the Week 3 semis, were accused of stream-sniping another popular trio: Benjy ‘Benjyfishy’ Fish, Martin ‘MrSavage’ Andersen, and Kevin ‘LeTsHe’ Fedjuschkin.

Although fans initially deemed aqua’s behavior suspicious, things quickly escalated. With Benjyfishy’s team unable to qualify for the Week 3 finals and the discovery that aqua was watching MrSavage’s stream during the competition, the controversy has spiraled.

Aqua banned by Epic Games

On October 25, aqua confirmed that his account had been banned from competitive, with Epic Games simply providing the reason as “other.”

Following condemnations of the World Cup winner’s team, rumors began circulating that aqua, Rezon, and Noahreyli had been banned by participating past the first match of the Finals. 

It was never officially legitimized and has since been made even more unclear by responses from some of the involved parties.

After the rumor mill buzzed with the reports that aqua’s team was banned from competing, he took to Twitter and gave a concise clarification denying those allegations: “We are not banned, we just don’t wanna play. It’s boring without early fighting Benjy.”

Given the difficulty inherent to confirming someone was in fact stream-sniping and didn’t coincidentally run into a fellow streamer, many believe it is unlikely that the World Cup winner has actually been exiled from the competition.

Additionally, some have noted that bans typically result in removal from the leaderboard, something that aqua’s team has not been hit with.

As for how the players are handling it, aqua and Benjyfishy simply joked about the incident.

 

At 17 years old, aqua represented his home country of Austria to the fullest by winning the 2019 Fortnite World Cup’s Duos event with Norway’s Emil ‘Nyhrox’ Bergquist. With a smooth $1.5 million earned from the World Cup, he’s since signed with Cooler Esport and continued to win competitions across Europe.
