Two of the most popular Fortnite streamers and YouTubers, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan, are well respected for their in-game skills as well as being genuine entertainers. But Hassan thinks he’s got the upper hand now when it comes to his Fortnite ability. 

Although Ninja is inarguably the biggest name in Fortnite generally, still holding the record for most Twitch subscribers, viewers and followers, even after almost a year since he left the platform, it doesn’t necessarily mean he’s the best.

Blevins himself would concede that many of the competitive professional players are likely far beyond his skills at this point, but in 2018, at the height of his Twitch popularity, many considered him the top dog.

SypherPK has become on of Fortnite’s biggest content creators, partly thanks to dedication to the game.

Tfue later came to take that crown, but in 2020, one streamer who has remained dedicated to Fortnite while others move on to games like Warzone or Valorant, is SypherPK.

Speaking to Nadeshot and CouRage on their 100 Thieves podcast, Sypher was asked to compare himself to Ninja, in terms of their respective ‘peaks’ in the battle royale game.

“At Ninja’s peak, compared to others, he reached a much higher level, if you put him on a list of the top players,” SypherPK started.

“But, at my peak, mechanically speaking, being able to edit, built, aiming wise, I reached a higher skill-caliber than Ninja. […] So, at my peak, I was a better Fortnite player, but at his peak, he was higher up than me.”

But, Sypher did clarify that even as Ninja doesn’t play as much Fortnite these days, there are now countless players that are better than both of them. Sypher makes the claim that Ninja was in fact top 5 or top 10 at his peak.

CouRage then wanted his own ranking, this time vs TimTheTatman, and Sypher courteously picked CouRage as the better player. “You get real sweaty at one point – especially close to the World Cup,” he said of Dunlop’s skills.

Sypher himself might be getting dragged away from Fortnite, thanks to Ubisoft’s new battle royale Hyper Scape, which he said he’s been loving in its beta release.

Epic Games tease more “exclusive” content coming for Fortnite Crew members

According to a brand-new leaked survey, Epic Games have been asking players what they might want to see added as a feature to the Fortnite Crew subscription service, hinting that they’re open to changing up what’s included in the future.

If you took a look at the Fortnite Crew subscription service and thought that it didn’t include enough or didn’t include much that you’d be interested in, Epic Games may be heeding those concerns.

According to Fortnite leaker ‘iFireMonkey,’ a brand-new survey sent out to Fortnite players might indicate that the developer might be open to changing up what a Fortnite Crew subscription comes with. Specifically, the survey asks players to rank what benefits would be most or least important to be added to the service.

Currently, the Fortnite Crew service includes an exclusive skin, some V-Bucks and a free battle pass.

The question itself features a wide range of choices. Some are simply new ways to purchase Fortnite Crew subscriptions, like the ability to buy the service in retail stores and multi-month options.

There are also more gameplay-centric choices, including everything from custom matchmaking options to cosmetics that show off how long you’ve had a subscription. Beyond that, there’s even a choice for a monthly physical mailer with additional rewards outside of what’s given digitally.

Despite this development, it remains to be seen if the company will actually implement any changes. While this survey might indicate that the company is, at the very least, open to adding features to the service, it’s important to remember that it’s not a guarantee that they will.

Currently, the service includes a free battle pass, an exclusive Crew pack, 1000 V-Bucks and an exclusive Member’s Only emote (at least for a limited time), so the implementation of any one of the features listed in the leaked survey would be a welcome addition, especially after its rocky start.

For any updates regarding new features in the Fortnite Crew service and Fortnite in general, keep it locked to Dexerto.
