Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has explained why he understands big streamers like Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop and Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani wanting to quit Fortnite, saying that he “definitely gets” the desire to branch out.

It seems somewhat of a turbulent time for Fortnite streamers and players in general. It’s no secret that interest in the battle royale title has waned throughout Chapter 2, following the longest season in history, but the release of Season 2 doesn’t appear to have been enough to bring some players back.

After CouRage posted several tweets on March 1, explaining that he wants to expand his streams to include other games, Ninja spoke about it and says he understands the decision, and also responded to a Myth tweet which implied the TSM streamer wanted to do more variety streams.

Season 2 released in February 2020, but didn’t manage to bring back all of the interest and success it had once upon a time.

Ninja was speaking about how hard he practiced during the Fornite Championship Series squad events, saying that he’s not sure where he would be if he hadn’t been grinding so hard and worked so meticulously on his building and editing – adding that if it weren’t for those tournaments, he “doesn’t know if he would be playing Fortnite right now.”

The Mixer star then referenced CouRage’s tweets, where he says he has a “fear” of playing other games such as God of War and CS:GO, but that recently he has “really struggled to sign on and play them,” partially blaming skill-based matchmaking.

Blevins said that if he “was still average,” he would “probably be on the same train that CouRage is on right now, going full-blown competitive emo mode,” adding that he “definitely knows what he’s talking about.”

Following that up, teammate Malachi ‘Reverse2K’ Greiner referenced Myth’s tweet in which he says he’s “taking a little break from Fortnite.”

Ninja went on to say that Myth is so young and he’s so good that he thinks he should “just go all in,” – including TSM teammates Daequan Loco and Darryle ‘Hamlinz’ Hamlin in that sentiment.

Hamlinz and Daequan’s absence from Fortnite and streaming as a whole has been much more significant than Myth’s, with the duo regularly taking weeks or even months off at a time, but Myth has stayed much more consistent with his stream schedule.

While Fortnite really helped build many streamer’s careers, several of its top names have found plenty to complain about.

Fortnite is still one of the most popular games for streamers, but there’s no doubt that it’s starting to lose its appeal and, judging by this, they might end up losing one of the biggest content creators on the planet.


Epic Games tease more “exclusive” content coming for Fortnite Crew members

According to a brand-new leaked survey, Epic Games have been asking players what they might want to see added as a feature to the Fortnite Crew subscription service, hinting that they’re open to changing up what’s included in the future.

If you took a look at the Fortnite Crew subscription service and thought that it didn’t include enough or didn’t include much that you’d be interested in, Epic Games may be heeding those concerns.

According to Fortnite leaker ‘iFireMonkey,’ a brand-new survey sent out to Fortnite players might indicate that the developer might be open to changing up what a Fortnite Crew subscription comes with. Specifically, the survey asks players to rank what benefits would be most or least important to be added to the service.

Currently, the Fortnite Crew service includes an exclusive skin, some V-Bucks and a free battle pass.

The question itself features a wide range of choices. Some are simply new ways to purchase Fortnite Crew subscriptions, like the ability to buy the service in retail stores and multi-month options.

There are also more gameplay-centric choices, including everything from custom matchmaking options to cosmetics that show off how long you’ve had a subscription. Beyond that, there’s even a choice for a monthly physical mailer with additional rewards outside of what’s given digitally.

Despite this development, it remains to be seen if the company will actually implement any changes. While this survey might indicate that the company is, at the very least, open to adding features to the service, it’s important to remember that it’s not a guarantee that they will.

Currently, the service includes a free battle pass, an exclusive Crew pack, 1000 V-Bucks and an exclusive Member’s Only emote (at least for a limited time), so the implementation of any one of the features listed in the leaked survey would be a welcome addition, especially after its rocky start.

For any updates regarding new features in the Fortnite Crew service and Fortnite in general, keep it locked to Dexerto.
