Once one of the biggest names in Fortnite, streamer Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, has explained why he can’t play the game anymore, after his recent switch to Call of Duty Warzone.

Fortnite saw more than its fair share of success in recent years, becoming arguably the biggest BR game in the history of the industry and, alongside the likes of Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, Tfue was a name synonymous with the title.

Now, though, he’s clearly had enough of Epic Games’ masterpiece, and explained not only why he’s not playing the new update, which finally brought Joy Ride cars to the game, but why he may never play it again.

He was still playing Fortnite fairly regularly up until a couple months after Warzone’s release, when the temptation obviously became too much.

Tfue eventually joined his contemporaries in hopping off of the Fortnite ship, and addressed the situation during an August 5 stream.

“Fortnite is trash,” he said, reading out a comment in his Twitch chat. “Fortnite is f**king a*s, bro. You guys have got to understand, a lot of these kids playing Fortnite now weren’t playing Fortnite when I was. I’ve been playing since it came out.”

He continued: “You can’t play a game for years straight. For me, it’s usually 2-3 years is, like, the max for playing a game. You can’t play a game for five years straight. You’ll lose your mind.”

While some might disagree, especially those who play the likes of timeless esports such as League of Legends or CS:GO, Tfue’s comments do appear to be reflective of the general gamer. It’s the reason games such as FIFA or Call of Duty see so much success with annual releases: players often want something that feels fresh and new, and perhaps Fortnite was no longer doing that for Tfue.

Tenney didn’t continue on the subject, so while he didn’t say he would try Fortnite again at some point, he didn’t completely rule out the possibility.

For now, he’s obviously looking to conquer Verdansk like many other top streamers, and we’ll have to wait to see if he has as much success in Warzone as in Fortnite.

How to return your Fortnite NFL skin without using a refund token

After a recent update introducing a change to Fortnite’s NFL skins, Epic Games is giving players the chance to return them for a limited time, and we have all the info on how to do so.

Fortnite’s v14.30 update brought a change to the game’s NFL skins, removing the name and logo for the team formerly known as the Washington Redskins.

After years of public backlash, the team removed their nickname and are now officially called the “Washington Football Team” while they work on getting a new trademark.

In-game, the team has been removed from the available options in their line of NFL skins. Now, when you visit the customization tab, Washington will be the last option with no logo. With this change, Epic is allowing players to return their purchase for a limited time – without using a refund token.

Washington’s NFL Fortnite skin will be this instead.

But this exchange isn’t as straightforward as you might think, and has led to some confusion amongst players trying to figure out how to do it.

Players who still have refund tokens should be able to navigate to the proper tab by going to Settings > Profile (far right) > Lifetime Return Requests > Submit a Request. There, you should see the NFL outfit listed as one of the items eligible for returns.

But, if you’ve already used all of your refund tokens, the “Submit a Request” Button won’t’ be active. Another problem you may run into is that your game didn’t update right away, making the NFL skin not show up as a return option – until it does update at least.

The good is that a fix for this is very simple: all you need to do is play a game or enter and leave Creative Mode. After that, you’ll see the prompt shown below and will be able to navigate to the Settings tab and issue a refund.

This prompt should let you return your NFL skin even with no tokens.

While the NFL skins were a fun addition to Fortnite for a lot of gamers, some players have found that they don’t use these skins as much as they did when they first came out. Trading one of these in will net you 1,500 V-Bucks as well, which could almost seem like an extra payday if you bought the skin a year or two ago.

Now that you’ve got an extra 1,500 V-Bucks burning a hole in your pocket, you can save them for later, or use them for one of the new skins that were leaked in the v14.30 update.
