Tfue and Symfuhny discuss their current feelings towards Fortnite, suggest most pro players feel the same

Fortnite Battle Royale is one of the most popular games in history, but there appears to be a growing sense of discontent from professional players and the competitive community.

Additions to the game like the Glider Redeploy, Balloons and, more recently, the Mounted Turret and Dynamite, have resulted in numerous pros from teams like TSM, Luminosity Gaming, Team Liquid and FaZe players voicing their concerns.

On November 22, Mason ‘Symfuhny’ Lanier and FaZe Clan’s Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney revealed that they have been struggling to enjoy Fortnite in recent weeks and months, and made it clear that they think other top players feel the same.

Tfue / TwitterTfue won the Fortnite Fall Skirmish finals with teammate cloakzy.

“This game’s so fucking boring, dude, I don’t know how you stream this game, like, all day,” said Tfue during a Twitch stream. “Dude, I haven’t been having that much fun playing Fortnite the past, like, month. I don’t know why.”

Symfuhny, after saying that he doesn’t stream all day at the moment, concurred with Tfue’s sentiments, saying: “I think that’s every, like, pro player though to be honest. I don’t think any pro player gets on right now and enjoys, like genuinely enjoys, it.”

Both players went on to say that they still enjoy watching other people enjoy, but struggle to enjoy the process of playing for themselves at the moment.

Tfue also made it clear that he still thinks that the game has a lot of potential, and that he enjoys Playground mode, but certain additions like the Balloons and Mounted Turret seem to have made public play less enjoyable for him.

With so many top players and streamers beginning to express their issues with the game, it will be interesting to see whether Epic Games can make changes that satisfy them and the community as a whole.

In the past, the developers have done an outstanding job of listening to players and fans, but it would seem that they have been struggling to find a balance between adding new content and keeping old school players happy recently.


Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
