Summit1g mindblown by Fortnite’s FNCS landing spot controversy

Popular Twitch streamer Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar has been left mindblown by the Fortnite Champion Series landing spot controversy as drama unfolded between top players Cody ‘Clix’ Conrod and Dominick ‘UnknownxArmy’ Green.

While playing in the Fortnite Champion Series solo tournament, Clix complained that he was frequently getting dropped on by Unknown, threatening both their tournament chances, after Clix danced on Unknown after eliminating him from a match.

Compromising someone else’s landing spot is usually considered poor sportsmanship in Fortnite, with players opting to pick out an opponent and go after them rather than playing the game to the best of their abilities, at a drop spot that they are used to and know well.

Although the drama encapsulated the Fortnite community, it seemingly managed to spread much further, with summit – a huge critic of Epic Games’ battle royale title – commenting on the situation.

He wasn’t the only one, but his response to the drama definitely elicited an array of interesting responses from the Fortnite community, many of whom claimed he simply didn’t know what he was talking about.

After wrapping his head around the controversy, summit tweeted about how competitive Fortnite is “so damn weird,” adding that in CS if someone is “talking sh*t” he can just roll over to their bombsite to “shut him up.”

Of course, with an entirely different esport comes a different subset of rules, be they in the rulebook itself or an established gentleman’s agreement when it comes to sportsmanship. Top Fortnite pro Jonathan “yung calculator” Weber was one of the first to respond and quickly reminded summit of this fact, saying that he loves him but to not tweet things such as that when he has “no idea of how it works.”

Obviously, as is the nature of the internet, there was a lot of vitriol in the responses to summit’s tweet, both for and against summit’s point, and he eventually wrote another tweet asking for people not to hate him “too much,” taking a dig at Dennis ‘Cloakzy’ Lepore at the same time.

Needless to say, his exposure to the competitive Fortnite scene may have ended up posing more questions than it actually answered, and, to his credit, he at least tried to learn rather than simply ignoring it.


Fortnite Crew explained: Battle Pass skin packs, V-Bucks, price & more

Starting with Chapter 2 Season 5, Fortnite will have a brand new subscription service titled Fortnite Crew, which aims to bring a slew of different features that players love, wrapped up into one nice little package. Here’s everything you need to know. 

Season 4 of Fortnite is rapidly coming to an end. The Marvel-themed season has been around for a few months now and in December it will be replaced by Season 5. While we don’t know the full extent of the new season, we do know that it’s set to introduce a brand new service called Fortnite Crew.

This subscription-based model, which is a first for Fortnite, is set to introduce a brand new way to get the battle pass each season, while at the same time earning some free goodies to sink your teeth into. But how does it work, how much does it cost, and what does it include? Here’s the breakdown.

Fortnite Crew contents

The most attractive inclusion in this new subscription service is that of the battle pass. Each month, you’ll get the premium version of the battle pass at no extra cost to you, so long as you’re subscribed to Fortnite Crew.

Beyond that, however, you’ll also receive a number of different items beyond the premium battle pass. You’ll also receive 1000 v-bucks and an exclusive Fortnite Crew Pack, which in-and-of-itself includes a skin and a “matching accessory”.

Fortnite Crew cost

According to Epic, the Fortnite Crew subscription service will cost players $11.99 a month. This price makes the service an objectively good deal, as a normal battle pass costs 950 V-bucks, which costs around $8.

So for a few extra bucks from the standard price of a battle pass, you’re getting 1000 extra V-bucks, an exclusive skin pack, and the battle pass itself.

How to subscribe to Fortnite Crew

Epic Games
Players will be able to purchase the Fortnite Crew subscription from the Item Shop when it launches in December.

Subscribing to Fortnite Crew is, apparently, quick and easy. All you have to do is click the icons found in the Fortnite Item Shop or on the battle pass screen, meaning it doesn’t seem like players will have to jump through a bunch of hoops in order to get access to the service.

In addition, Epic Games also confirmed that fans will be able to cancel their subscription at any time. Presumably, fans will be able to keep all of the items they unlocked through the service up until that point, considering they would have already paid for that month.
