Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has revealed the reason why he won’t fully move to playing with controller on Fortnite Battle Royale, despite calling it the best input device in Season 2. 

The popular Twitch streamer, who has over 7.7 million followers on his channel, has mocked console players particularly on countless occasions in the past. However, even with the game’s meta flipping on its head and controller players now have an upper hand, with aim assist and accuracy boosts, he doesn’t actually see a reason to adapt.

After he was eliminated during a recent broadcast, the former FaZe Clan member called for a “level playing field” between mouse and controller, although it doesn’t look like Tenney’s going to be changing the way he plays the game any time soon – even if it could be of great benefit, competitively.

The streamer ran into an enemy during the stream and was finished off by a Tactical Shotgun, which sparked the comments about a level playing field. He said: “I just wish I had like low ping, like I just wish I had the same ping as my opponent.”

Moments later, Turner changed his mind and moved onto what he believes to be the real issue in the game – controller player advantage. “I don’t even want low ping, I want it to be an equal playing field between mouse and controller,” he said.

“I obviously think controller is the best Fortnite input device, for sure, but I don’t want to practise controller for just this game, you know what I’m saying? The future of gaming is all mouse and keyboard.”

Following on from that, Tfue also claimed that a lot of these players who are dominating Fortnite competitive with a controller won’t be able to translate such skills in another space.

“None of these controller Fortnite players are going to go off and become professional CSGO players on a controller, it’s just not going to happen. Like, there’s no transition from this. It’s a one time thing so I’m just going to stay on mouse and controller.”

Will Tfue move away from Fortnite and try another game soon?

These comments will be particularly interesting for his fans on Twitch, who watch him play Epic Games’ battle royale title regularly, as it could be one of the first signs in a while that he’s considering making the transition to another game himself in the future.

Whether or not that will happen in the future remains to be seen, but clearly he’s not a fan of how competitive Fortnite is evolving – that’s for sure.


Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
