Streaming superstar Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins lost his mind after ping issues within Fortnite cost him a potential solo victory royale – leaving him roaring at the tops of his lungs in fury. 

When it comes to Fortnite, there is no bigger achievement than bagging a victory royale. It doesn’t matter if it’s your 1,000th win or your very first, being able to claim the bragging rights of being the last player standing is always something to hold precious.


So, when the battle royale itself prevents you from winning, especially when it’s at the very last hurdle, you’d probably want to punch a wall, throw a controller, and slam your desk in a bid to vent your anger.

That cruel fate fell upon Ninja during his March 9 stream as he went in search of a solo victory. The former Halo professional had managed to secure a one-on-one fight with the final remaining player – who had managed to box themselves into a corner. 


Ninja attempted to take the enemy’s wall so that he could toy with them and eventually take them down, however, he was unable to – leaving him to shout in anger as he finished as the runner-up.

“I can’t take walls, man! I win that game if I can take his floor,” Ninja exclaimed. “But the game doesn’t give it to me. I tried to take that like five times – I knew it was coming, I should have just sprayed man, sprayed with my drum.”

Even though he took a moment of silence, the streaming star was still upset by what had happened – letting out another roar of anger before stating that everything was “alright.” 


However, Ninja turned his crosshairs back at Fortnite and it’s ping issues. “Just don’t have good enough internet man, don’t have good enough ping bro, I don’t live close enough to the servers man,” he added.

Despite that, his frustrations still raged on as he tapped his mouse off his desk a few times. “Oh my god dude, I want to punch a wall. I actually want to punch something, this is so stupid.” 

This isn’t the first complaint about ping and other issues within Fortnite from Ninja. Only a day earlier, he revealed that those problems were the reason behind him cutting down on competitive play.


Whether or not the problems will be addressed in the future remains to be seen, but for the good of players sanity, Epic might want to consider adding a few more servers at least.

Popular Twitch streamer ‘TheStockGuy’ was left speechless after receiving 126 lbs of cranberry sauce in the mail from one of his viewers in a hilarious prank.

Twitch is one of the net’s most popular live streaming platforms, and rightfully so; the site is home to a slew of hilarious and shocking moments that happen in real-time, from everything to doors falling on unlucky streamers in the middle of video games to viewers rescuing streamers’ trapped cats.


However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.


“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
