Fortnite star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has explained why he believes the battle royale title will be “unplayable” in a few months, citing issues with ping and controller players as the reason.

Ping and aim assist have been widely-debated factors within the Fortnite community for years now, with people on all different sides of the spectrum having strong opinions on what is and isn’t acceptable.

Tfue is one of the most outspoken names on these issues, especially surrounding controller players and aim assist, and has now explained why they will make the game unplayable “within a year.”

Never one to shy away from controversy and the bigger issues at stake, Tfue took to explaining to his viewers what the issue with in Fortnite is currently, telling them that it’s only going to get worse over time.

Drawing a “professional, graded” map of the USA, Tfue drew a bunch of green dots across the US to show where mouse and keyboard players live, with it mostly populated on the east coast but spread somewhat throughout the country as a whole.

Then, he drew a big red circle on the east coast, which is supposed to denote where the controller players on low ping are living – the insinuation being that it’s much easier for them to play than his spread-out mouse and keyboard peers.

He said: “a few months and it’s going to be all controller players, and they’re all going to live in places with good internet and low ping. This game, just give it a few months, is going to be unplayable.”

Tfue then assured his chat that he has “never spit more facts” and to “just remember” what he’s said and see if he’s right or wrong in a year’s time, the point in which he expects the game to be unplayable.

Of course, there’s no way to determine whether this will happen until a year later (February 2021, if you’re keeping tabs), but it’s obviously something Tfue feels extremely strongly about – and he’s not kept it a secret that he’s losing his patience with Fortnite.

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.
