Fortnite sensation Tyler ‘Ninja’ Belvins has fired shots at fellow streamer Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, after the Twitch superstar expressed his disappointment in the direction Epic Games are taking their massively popular battle royale title.
Tfue is no stranger to speaking his mind, especially when it comes to Fortnite, but this time he may have stepped a little over the line according to other streamers. His recent jab led to a number of responses, including a particularly barbed comment from Mixer star Ninja.
In a tweet on October 3, Tfue expressed his disappointment with the current state of the game, and stated "Fortnite kind f*cking sucks now, tf happened?"

His stance on the title wasn't met with resounding agreement, however, and Ninja fired back that he had been enjoying Epic's latest changes.
"I actually have been enjoying the game recently after the Gotham City update,” Ninja responded, before suggesting that Tenney might be better suited playing other games if he had lost his love for Fortnite. "If you don’t enjoy the game, stop playing and roasting it all the time."

Other Fortnite personalities quickly jumped to Tfue's defence however. Pro player Abdullah 'parpy' Khudeish replied to Ninja saying that he forgot to "type #Ad at the end," suggesting the Mixer streamer was only praising the game because he was making money off it.
Ninja was having none of it though, and fired back at the New Zealand star: "Coming from the dude tweeting about how sh*t the game is yet plays it and uploads Fortnite videos everyday? What’s more of an #ad? Sh*tty insult."
Ghost Gaming star Issa 'Issa' Rahim also sided with Tfue and Parpy, accusing Ninja of being hypocritical considering he has often commented on the state of the game as well, and not always in the best of light. He added screenshots of Ninja's past comments to back up his point.
"Two of those are jokes, and the other constructive criticism,"Ninja replied. "Issa, c'mon man lol, you're stretching and it's embarassing."
Two of those are jokes, and the other constructive criticism. Not blatant negativity. Issa cmon man lol your stretching and it’s embarrassing— Ninja (@Ninja) October 4, 2019
Tfue certainly isn't the first pro player or streamer to express their agitation with Fortnite and the direction of the game, and he may not be the last.
Recent dramas over cross-platform skill-based matchmaking and the removal of turbo-building show that as long as the battle royale title holds its place among the most popular games in the world, there will also be those that voice their complaints.
