SypherPK predicts exact location of Fortnite’s Atlantis POI

Popular Fortnite content creator Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan thinks he knows exactly where the game’s highly-anticipated upcoming Atlantis point of interest will be on the map.

While a number of Fortnite’s biggest names have made the switch to other titles, such as Call of Duty battle royale Warzone, Sypher has stayed loyal to Epic Games’ hit and has remained a go-to authority on all things Fortnite.

That’s why, now he’s predicted where the Atlantis POI will be, fans and players are forced to listen, because he might just be spot on.

Aquaman has been a high-profile addition to Fortnite, and players expect Atlantis to become a POI soon too.

Sypher first called that Atlantis will definitely become a POI once it became evident that Aquaman was getting involved in the game, with the DC Comics character getting his own skin.

Now, as the map is slowly draining and the water levels falling, Sypher has found exactly where he expects Atlantis to be.

In the upper-left corner of the map, west of Pleasant Park and north of Sweaty Sands, a huge whirlpool is forming.

“This big whirlpool is big for a reason,” Sypher said in his July 18 upload. “I’m pretty sure, when the water fully drains, Atlantis is going to be here. This looks like the perfect spot for that POI.”

Sypher does add that, while he knows nothing just like everyone else, he believes that Atlantis will rise above the water, rather than being partly or completely submerged in it.

The prediction definitely seems possible: That is a huge space being taken up by the whirlpool, so it’s hard to imagine it won’t go on to be something much bigger and better, and could be the perfect spot for Atlantis to fill.

There’s no telling when or even if the fabled Atlantis POI will join the Fortnite map, but if it does, all eyes will be on the north-west corner of the map, especially with Fortnite Season 4 set to kick off in August.

Fortnite World Cup winner Aqua allegedly banned for FNCS stream-sniping

Fortnite World Cup champion and Season 4 FNCS competitor, David ‘aqua’ Wang has been accused of stream-sniping and subsequently been punished by an alleged ban by Epic Games.

At 17 years old, aqua represented his home country of Austria to the fullest by winning the 2019 Fortnite World Cup’s Duos event with Norway’s Emil ‘Nyhrox’ Bergquist. With a smooth $1.5 million earned from the World Cup, he’s since signed with Cooler Esport and continued to win competitions across Europe.

Most recently, aqua’s trio (with Rezon and Noahreyli) have been participating in FNCS Europe and, following the Week 3 semis, have been accused of stream-sniping another popular trio: Benjy ‘Benjyfishy’ Fish, Martin ‘MrSavage’ Andersen, and Kevin ‘LeTsHe’ Fedjuschkin.

Although fans initially deemed aqua’s behavior suspicious, things quickly escalated. With Benjyfishy’s team unable to qualify for the Week 3 finals and the discovery that aqua was watching MrSavage’s stream during the competition, the controversy has spiraled.

Following condemnations of the World Cup winner’s team, rumors began circulating that aqua, Rezon, and Noahreyli had been banned by Epic Games from participating past the first match of the Finals. 

Although many fans were delighted to hear the news, it was never officially legitimized and has since been made even more unclear by responses from some of the involved parties.

After the rumor mill buzzed with the reports that aqua’s team was banned from competing, he took to Twitter and gave a concise clarification denying those allegations: “We are not banned, we just don’t wanna play. It’s boring without early fighting Benjy.”

Given the difficulty inherent to confirming someone was in fact stream-sniping and didn’t coincidentally run into a fellow streamer, many believe it is unlikely that the World Cup winner has actually been exiled from the competition.

Additionally, some have noted that bans typically result in removal from the leaderboard, something that aqua’s team has not been hit with.

 

As for how the players are handling it, aqua and Benjyfishy have simply joked about the incident for hours. Neither side appears to be nearly as angry as some fans have been, instead, laughing at the drama and sharing memes.

 

While whatever’s going on behind the scenes may remain unclear, all players involved are more than good enough to qualify for the Season 4 FNCS Finals at some point, if they haven’t already, so it seems that no one’s really that bothered by the situation, ban or no ban.

We will continue to update this article with more details as they become available.
