Twitch megastar Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has fired back at Fortnite fans who have been posting clips of him having difficulties building on the popular battle royale title.

Recently, a Twitter account posted a video of Ninja playing Fortnite with Ben ‘DrLupo’ Lupo, when the pair came across an enemy team.

Preparing for a build battle, Ninja began to build himself a base, utilizing a technique called “90s”. This involves the player spinning aroundd – doing 90 degree turns – building walls and ramps quickly to create a high tower in very little time.

After watching the video, some people began to criticize Ninja and his building skills, something which the Luminosity Gaming member wasn’t happy with, taking to his stream to mock those who posted the video by pretending to be them.

“Bro have you seen Ninja’s 90s?” stated Ninja, pretending to laugh while sticking his tongue out to the camera. “It’s the mind of a troll dude.”

“Let me just find the worst possible clip of Ninja doing 90s, like his first time really trying them and practising them real quick, and let me post this. Check out Ninja’s 90s, they’re just so bad!”

Ninja has been on the receiving end of backlash from the Fortnite community after players claimed that Ninja had gotten them banned from the game.

It has since been confirmed that both bans had nothing to do with Ninja at all, and one of them didn’t even take place. Since then, fellow Fortnite streamers have come out in defence of Blevins, with Ninja himself appearing on KEEMSTAR’s Drama Alert to address the situation.

While Ninja continues to receive hate from some parts of the community, he’ll soon be able to party in New York, as he’s set to ring in a the new year with a 12 hour Fortnite stream from Times Square on New Year’s Eve.


Tfue teases Fortnite return after huge Season 5 update

Fortnite Battle Royale’s Season 5 update might well have tempted Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney into returning to the battle royale, after the creator dropped a big teaser on social media. 

Epic Games rolled out a bumper new patch on December 2, following the huge Galactus event to seal the end for Season 4. Since that time, we have discovered major changes in the game — including new online quests to replace challenges, Mythic Items, and a new currency called Gold Bars.

With the majority of the community excited about those changes, things might be about to get ever better — as Tfue has hinted at an incoming stream on the game.

You know what that means… It could finally sneak back onto his daily Twitch schedule — or not!

There’s new Quests, Bounties and other things for Tfue to explore.

Tfue Fortnite stream?

On December 2, the former Fortnite esports star — who even competed in the World Cup — has set out the terms fans need to follow to get him back playing. It’s quite simple, too.

He tweeted: “Use code “Tfue” and I’ll stream Fortnite tomorrow.”

Whether or not the player will be looking to stream it for hours on end, or just a brief period of time, remains to be seen. One thing is for sure, though, the new patch certainly is jam-packed with new content to work through.

In October, the streamer revealed two years was too much for him to stick to one game. He said: “Two years of cranking 90s was just too much. 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.”

Fortnite’s latest update is very much up and running now though, with a number of further changes are expected. New loot bosses are expected to drop alongside The Mandalorian at different locations throughout the season, which will keep the majority of people occupied.

Will Tfue be part of that? We’ll have to wait and see.
