Jaryd ‘Fortnite isn’t an esport.
It’s no secret that Summit doesn’t enjoy the game of Fortnite and it’s something he’s criticized numerous times in the past.
While he hasn’t actually fired up the game in several seasons, he’s still been following the title from afar, and has taken shots at pros complaining when he can.
Now, he’s taken it a step forward, and went as far as saying that Fortnite shouldn’t even be considered an esport.
“Fortnite isn’t an (esport), fuck it I’m saying it….” he tweeted – and many of his replies were people agreeing with him.
The game isn’t in a particularly good state competitively right now, so there are a lot of fair criticisms out there.
Fortnite isn’t an eSport, fuck it I’m saying it….
