Twitch sensation Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has hit back at Fortnite pro players like Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani for expressing their annoyance at the current state of the popular battle royale title.

Ninja was playing Fortnite alongside Ben ‘DrLupo’ Lupo, Timothy ‘Timthetatman’ Betar and Ryan ‘Chap’ Chapo when Team Liquid star Chapo began to complain about some of the in-game sounds, saying that he “hated” them.

Blevins immediately responded: “Chap, try not to sound so angry. We need more positive pro players man. It’s funny you mention it, I’m sick of all these people who make a living off this game and blew up because of it, and then they say this game is terrible. Well you know what, you don’t have to play it!”

Fortnite has helped Ninja become the face of Twitch.

When the squad began talking about the unpopular Mounted Turret item, DrLupo brought up Team SoloMid’s Myth, who tweeted out that whoever thought the item was a good idea should be fired, a tweet which Ninja thought was disrespectful.

“Myth, dude, once you go to these people and you game for a long time and you meet these developers,” stated Ninja, “Especially when you’re in a position like Myth – when you tweet something like that, it’s very rude.”

Blevins also took aim at FaZe Clan’s Tfue, saying: “I just love how all the pros and people who try and compete in this game just hate everything. I was watching Tfue’s stream, the amount of times he’s called 90% of the competitive stuff dogshit, like tournaments and stuff? I just don’t get it bro.”

While Ninja has seen immense growth streaming Fortnite casually, the Luminosity Gaming member has also found success in the competitive side of the game. 

The former Halo pro player took part in the Fortnite Winter Royale qualifiers, finishing in 150th place in North America to secure his place in the continental finals.

Both Tfue and Myth have refrained from responding to Ninja’s comments, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated as this story continues.


Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
