Insane Number of Viewers Tuned in for TSM Myth’s 1v1 Against FaZe Tfue in Fortnite’s Playground LTM

Despite there still not being a formal esports scene in Fortnite, the intensity of competitive action still attracts the largest audiences.

Even the most casual players tune in to watch their favorite pro players compete against each other, whether it’s in the weekly Friday Fortnite tournament or 1v1’s in the Playground LTM.

An example of this was seen when Team SoloMid’s Fortnite team captain ‘Myth’ faced off against FaZe Clan pro ‘Tfue’ in a battle between two of the best players in the world.

Their match was played in the Playground mode and live-stream on Myth’s Twitch channel, and the number of people that watched was incredible.

According to The Esports Observer, which releases Twitch viewership statistics every week, an astounding 471.4K total hours were watched during that single broadcast which featured the two players in a pro 1v1 contest.

With Myth’s channel having a total of 2.1 million hours watched between July 2-8, that single broadcast made up just short of 25% of that week’s total hours.

Myth rose up from 9th place last week, with the majority of his total hours watched (471.4K, gathered in a single broadcast) brought about during a pro 1v1 contest against FaZe Clan’s Turner “Tfue” Tenney. This was made possible thanks to the delayed but finally delivered “Playground Limited Mode” (LTM), a new new addition to Fortnite that allows pro players to skirmish against one another in a private lobby without the usual disturbances of a packed battle royale map. Should developer Epic Games introduce a permanent version of the mode, it will put them massively ahead on esports infrastructure, while offering the potential of weekly highlights for streaming audiences.

As one would expect, Myth and Tfue’s build-fights were nothing short of spectacular; the two went back and forth with each doing his best to outdo the other.

Epic confirms long-awaited Fortnite pre-edit changes are coming soon

It’s been a long time coming, but now Fortnite players can be put at ease: Epic are working on pre-edit changes to make building easier after years of the community petitioning.

Pre-editing has been a contentious issue in the Fortnite community for years. They’re on for all players, and helps players quickly place a lot of edited builds.

However, most players don’t use pre-editing, so its existence ends up being a hindrance more than anything. It can leave players exposed due to a poor build, something they weren’t intending at the time.

Pre-edits have been the bane of Fortnite players across the world. Thankfully, Epic are working on disabling them.

A new rallying cry across the community comes across with every new season, pleading with Epic to at least give player the option to disable pre-edits. While they’ve been dodging the issue for quite some time, there’s finally been some solid news.

After a year of uncertainty with Epic stating they were “actively considering” it, they’ve now set their course on giving the community what they want.

“We don’t have an exact timetable, but we’re going to [add a disable pre-edit option],” community coordinator TheStevieT told players on Reddit.

It comes after more clips of players dying because of their pre-edited builds went viral across Reddit and other social media platforms. It’s quite the common occurrence, and with Epic now solidifying their stance, it’s got players excited.

That being said, it could be a little while before it’s added. They’ve started work, but without an exact timetable in mind, it could be seasons down the line. One can hope that it’ll be added in Chapter 2 Season 5 at the end of 2020 though.

Another Epic staffer, gstaffEpic, clarified that such a change isn’t in any of the Fortnite builds yet. However, it’s getting close, and it’s something they’re “working towards.”

It might not be the most explosive subject, but as far as quality of life changes go, this could completely transform the way Fortnite is played. We will update you once more information arises.
