Ninja explains why he’d never get away with Tfue’s FNCS controversy

Popular streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has explained how the Fortnite community wouldn’t not get away with an explosive meltdown like Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney’s during the fourth week of the FNCS squads event.

Tfue and his squad exploded on November 24 when opposing teams in the tournament appeared at their usual landing spot, eventually leading to the team rage quitting the tournament altogether, hurling insults at each other on social media, and even claims from pro player BlastaMastaa that the 21-year-old was “witch-hunting” him.

Unsurprisingly, Fortnite rival Ninja watched the explosive aftermath of the incident and explained that if he were to do something similar, he believes the reaction would be huge, and extremely critical of him.

Tfue and Cloak’s team were furious when an opposing team dropped at their regular landing spot.

While playing with long-time duo Malachi ‘Reverse2k’ Grenier, the pair discussed Tfue’s rage, and how the community responds to him compared to the former FaZe Clan star.

“I don’t think there’s any better content than Turner’s team getting landed on and then complaining,” the Mixer streamer explained. “Dude, it was nuts. If I talked to my teammates the way Turner talks to his, there would be Reddit threads roasting me, I’d be the most hated player on the planet. YouTube videos, clickbaits.”

“Everyone just expects you to be the guy,” agreed Reverse2k. “Like the role model. I guess I know why, you’re the biggest of them all. Tfue’s always had that savage side.”

Clip begins at 5:20 for mobile users.

While many remain surprised by Tfue’s outburst about another team landing at their spot, it isn’t the first time pro players have called out opponents for this, with TSM’s ZexRow calling out Aimhero_o for the same thing at ESL Katowice Royale back in March.

Whether this will discourage teams from heading to Steamy Stacks for fear of public rebuttal from Tfue remains to be seen, however, Ninja believes it’s not something that he himself would be able to get away with.


When is Halo coming to Fortnite? Skin release date, Winterfest, more

A Fortnite leaker has hinted at when the Halo skin and limited-time mode should be released, but the exact day is still slightly shrouded in mystery. 

Crossovers in Fortnite have been great for fans who want to combine two of their favorite things. In the past, we’ve seen everything from Batman to Stranger Things to a full-blown Marvel-themed season. 

In Chapter 2, Season 5, two more crossovers have joined the battle royale party. The Mandalorian from Star Wars is one of the battle pass skins, while Kratos from God of War has also released as a part of a cosmetics bundle. 

Leaks have suggested that more and more crossovers are coming, with Halo seemingly being the next one to arrive – bringing a Master Chief skin, as well as a few other cosmetics too.

Leaks have also claimed that there will be a Halo-themed, Red vs Blue limited-time mode – somewhat similar to the Marvel Endgame LTM where players were either part of the Avengers or Thanos’ army of minions. 

With Kratos getting his moment in the spotlight as of now, fans are desperate to know when Master Chief and the Halo crossover will take his place. 

Well, according to Fortnite leaker FNBRUnreleased, the Halo crossover is set to happen when the V15.10 update is released. As of writing, there is no concrete date for that, but it shouldn’t be too far away either.

When is Fortnite’s v15.10 update and Winterfest?

The V15.10 update would also, likely, be the patch to bring in the Winterfest celebrations back to Fortnite, so, we’d probably see some map changes too with more snow on the map. 

Last year, Winterfest started on December 18, which was a Wednesday. If Epic Games opt for a similar date this year, we could maybe see it around December 16-17, as they fall on a Wednesday and Thursday.

Ultimately, that is up to Epic, and we’ll just have to wait until they release an update, but hopefully, it won’t be too far away.
