Pro player accuses Tfue of “witch hunt” after Fortnite tournament drama

A professional Fortnite player has accused popular streamer and pro player Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney of forming a witch hunt against him and his teammates following a dramatic stream on November 24.

Tfue and his squad have faced some hardships in recent weeks, with stream snipers and the like running rampant and affecting their games. This is nothing new to the Fortnite star but is definitely detrimental when trying to qualify for a tournament.

However, being contested at their Steamy Stacks drop has inspired Tfue to call out his opponents – but they’ve now hit back and accused him of starting a witch hunt against them.

Epic GamesSteamy Stacks is a popular drop for players looking to maximize their rotation options.

Fortnite player BlastaMastaa took to Reddit late on Sunday, November 24 following the Fortnite Championship Series squads tournament in which he and his teammates – Dogo, Mojo, and Luminosity Gaming’s Neferux.

Tfue’s call to action to his viewers, telling them to tweet LG owner Steve Maida and prompt him to drop Neferux from the organization, made Blasta question how a player can “get away with this on such a big platform.”

He explains, “My squad has been going Steamy for four weeks now. We’re already qualified on consistency and have to use this tournament basically as practice. We want to know exactly how well we play the drop going into heats and where we can improve. There isn’t an open spot for every team on the map, being contested/contesting is part of the game.”

It’s clear to see why both parties might be annoyed: to Tfue, Cloakzy, and co., it seems like this squad is purposely trying to ruin their tournament and make it harder for them.

On the other hand, the Reddit post makes several good points. It’s not possible for every team to land at a different spot on the map as it simply isn’t big enough, so other teams landing on your drop is as good as inevitable.

In the past, many top players have expressed their annoyance at opposition landing at the same spot as them: one notable example was Team SoloMid’s ZexRow, who took aim at another player because of his contesting of ZexRow’s spot.

How this works out down the line remains to be seen. Whether the young squad bows to pressure and stops dropping at Steamy Stacks is a question for next week.

In the meantime, it seems we’re more likely to see something happen within Tfue’s squad, which appears to be struggling to play together if that night’s arguments are anything to go by.

A Fortnite leaker has hinted at when the Halo skin and limited-time mode should be released, but the exact day is still slightly shrouded in mystery. 

Crossovers in Fortnite have been great for fans who want to combine two of their favorite things. In the past, we’ve seen everything from Batman to Stranger Things to a full-blown Marvel-themed season. 

In Chapter 2, Season 5, two more crossovers have joined the battle royale party. The Mandalorian from Star Wars is one of the battle pass skins, while Kratos from God of War has also released as a part of a cosmetics bundle. 

Leaks have suggested that more and more crossovers are coming, with Halo seemingly being the next one to arrive – bringing a Master Chief skin, as well as a few other cosmetics too.

Leaks have also claimed that there will be a Halo-themed, Red vs Blue limited-time mode – somewhat similar to the Marvel Endgame LTM where players were either part of the Avengers or Thanos’ army of minions. 

With Kratos getting his moment in the spotlight as of now, fans are desperate to know when Master Chief and the Halo crossover will take his place. 

Well, according to Fortnite leaker FNBRUnreleased, the Halo crossover is set to happen when the V15.10 update is released. As of writing, there is no concrete date for that, but it shouldn’t be too far away either.

When is Fortnite’s v15.10 update and Winterfest?

The V15.10 update would also, likely, be the patch to bring in the Winterfest celebrations back to Fortnite, so, we’d probably see some map changes too with more snow on the map. 

Last year, Winterfest started on December 18, which was a Wednesday. If Epic Games opt for a similar date this year, we could maybe see it around December 16-17, as they fall on a Wednesday and Thursday.

Ultimately, that is up to Epic, and we’ll just have to wait until they release an update, but hopefully, it won’t be too far away.
