Ninja hilariously roasts teammate during Fortnite tournament

Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins might be one of the most famous streamers in the world, but that doesn’t mean he won’t make time for small streamers, too… well, time to roast them, at least.

It’s fair to say that Ninja has served his time and done the dirty work in the streaming sphere, having spent years grinding to make it a full-time job, and then grow the stream to certified celebrity status.

He knows the troubles and tribulations that come with trying to compete for a living and also make some spare cash on Twitch, but that doesn’t stop him seeing an opportunity to share some friendly banter with someone else on their way up — at the expense of their popularity.

That’s what Fortnite competitor and streamer Paper found out while playing in the final week of Ninja’s very own Ninja Battles tournament, which featured a $80,000 prize pool.

Ninja has become perhaps the most mainstream streamer on the planet thanks to his Fortnite success.

Paper has started to grow in popularity in recent months and started achieving more convincing results during tournaments, but that didn’t prompt teammate Ninja to hold back, who went straight for the throat with this hilarious roast.

After asking Paper how long he’s been competing for, while sat waiting in the pre-game lobby with the third of their trio, Ronaldo, Ninja discovered he had actually been competing since day one: which gave Blevins all the fuel he needed.

“Damn,” Ninja said after finding out. “You would think you would be more relevant,” which caused both Ronaldo and Paper to burst into hysterics, caught completely off-guard by the joke.

Paper came back at Ninja, roasting his “ugly a*s” Adidas shoes and his pink hair, but the damage had clearly been done, with Ronaldo telling Paper that he had been “checked” by the former Mixer star.

Though the good vibes were flowing, it didn’t do much to help Ninja and his trio, who finished in 27th in the tournament and outside of the prize money.

One of the biggest Fortnite streamers ever, Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, revealed why he quit the game that amassed him millions of followers and a lucrative streaming career.

Since Fortnite’s battle royale component was released, the 22-year-old has been one of the most consistent content creators around the title. As for skill, at one time he was hailed as the best player, which only skyrocketed his popularity on Twitch.

But after years of speaking out against design decisions and the subsequent release of Warzone, Tfue left behind his main source of content – sporadically popping back into Fortnite since.

Only lightly talking about his Fortnite absence in the past, Tfue opened up about why he left on the ‘Brand Risk Podcast’ and how he’s expanded from the game since making the decision.

Tfue was a huge figure in the Fortnite scene. He’s pictured here making an appearance at the Fortnite World Cup.

“Two years of cranking 90s was just too much,” Tfue said. “I had to spice it up and play other things. Plus, I felt like I milked the game so much that, like, me playing it was almost digging myself into a pit.”

When he first started uploading YouTube videos on Fortnite, he called it one of the “easiest and most polished” battle royales in the market at the time. That was largely true, as audiences from all age and skill groups eagerly hopped on to try it out.

But as his popularity slowly grew on Twitch, he saw that Fortnite started to become a job instead of the title that consumed his gaming life.

“I got to the point where the only reason I was playing it was for viewers and for my career,” he explained. “I just stopped caring about that and felt like I milked Fortnite for all that was worth, considering I was blowing up at the peak of it.”

Tfue feels Fortnite “will die down, but (never) actually die,” and he’s already deep into games like Warzone to hold him over. Other bigtime streamers like DrLupo, CouRage, and Myth have also been separating from Epic Games’ battle royale, something we’re seeing more and more.

While he made a name for himself on the Fortnite island, Tfue has been exploring greener pastures to take his streaming career to the next phase.
