Tfue and Cloak think there is too much money being offered by the Fortnite World Cup but Ninja isn’t having any of that talk.

Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore are two of the most popular Fortnite streamers in the game currently but they each have their fair share of issues with the game.

Recently the two have argued there is actually too much money being offered by the Fortnite World Cup, which features a $100,000,000 prize pool.

You can see Tfue and Cloak talk about the World Cup with Ninja’s response directly after at the very beginning of the video.

Is too much money available for the Fortnite World Cup?

“It actually sucks because of how much money is on the line,” Cloak said with Tfue in agreement. “The game is nowhere close to where it needs to be to have that amount of money as the prize pool,” 

There has been an ongoing joke in the community for a while now where some sort of bug, weapon, vehicle, etc. is introduced that Fortnite is ‘esports ready’ but it’s just viewers and players trolling Epic Games.

Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, while not directly responding to Cloak and Tfue in particular, said on his stream that people are always going to find something to complain about with Epic Games and Fortnite.

Epic Games$100,000,000 is up for grabs in the Fortnite World Cup.

Do Fortnite pros complain too much? 

“Deal with it, dude,” Ninja said. “There’s too much money on the line, of course, of course, people are going to find a way to complain about Epic. Epic there’s too much money, too much money on the line.”

Ninja has spoken up in the past about pros complaining in Fortnite and this looks to be another instance of that happening.

“What do the pros like?” he said during a stream with Reverse2K on March 15. “If you want to follow negative people, follow any player who plays the game professionally. […] 99% of the time – all their tweets are all negative.”

Ninja has largely stepped away from much of the competitive Fortnite scene while players like Tfue tend to be in most of the competitions, which is likely why there are more complains there.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
