After Epic Games released a controversial Fortnite update with v8.20, many of the big streamers played Uno for a night instead.

Fortnite has been on top of the gaming world for over a year now but player morale is shaken after a new update introduced a ranked mode and changed up the rules in the normal lobbies.

It’s not an understatement to say much of the pro community is upset about these changes as many of them are arguing for Epic Games to completely revert the update.

This probably won’t happen but Epic Games has shown a tendency to listen to player feedback so it’s very likely they are hearing everything the players are saying.

One way players can put a dent into Fortnite is by not streaming the game, which is what many of the top streamers decided to do on March 28.

Ninja, CouRage, Marcel and TimTheTatman all decided to play Uno together instead of Fortnite, which actually resulted in a surprisingly hilarious and entertaining stream.

Friendships were ruined

For everyone that spams “We miss NinjasHyper” he was back in full force with Uno as he was hurling insults to all the other players in what ended up being a highly contested night of Uno.

There was a lot of swearing, a lot of friendships being destroyed, and a lot of money being exchanged.

The four streamers started the night off by offering 20 gifted subs, better known as $100, for the winner but after Tim kept winning, the rules soon changed and the stakes were raised even higher.

The stakes were very high

At one point, the wager was 100 Tier 2 subs, which would equate to $1000, meaning the stakes were very high in Uno. What makes all of this funny is the fact Uno is a game that is almost solely based on luck.

The group was also playing with rules where playing a ‘0’ or a ‘7’ would switch your hand with another play, just adding to the complete randomness.

As the games went into the wee hours of the night, the players reported in the morning that it was hard to even look at their bank accounts.

A lot of money was exchanged in just a few hours of Uno

Ninja said he just turned off his phone after checking his PayPal but Courage said his bank called him and was concerned with all of his spending so fast.

It’ll be hard to recapture the magic that was that Uno stream but fans can either catch a video of it or wait for the inevitable return of Uno by the four friends.

If these four don’t play Uno again in the future it would definitely be a shame.


Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
