Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney is one of the most popular Fortnite players in the world, but the pro is concerned that Season 11 could spell the end of the popular battle royale game’s dominance over the gaming industry.
Fortnite burst into mainstream popularity back in September 2017, and since then has remained as one of the most popular games in the world, with players flocking to the title in search of Victory Royales.
Developers Epic Games have made some unpopular decisions though, especially in Season 10 with things like the introduction of B.R.U.T.E. mechs or cross-platform skill-based matchmaking, and when asked about Season 11, Tfue made it clear that he feels Season 11 is make-or-break.
During his October 3 stream, Tfue was asked how important he felt Season 11 was going to be for Fortnite’s future and gave a shockingly honest answer about where he sees the future of the game headed.
“How important do I think Season 11 is for Fortnite’s future?” read the 21-year-old from his chat. “The final straw is Season 11.”
He continued: “Season 11 is going to be a new map with a whole bunch of s**t, and the game’s going to f**king die. It’s going to suck, but that’s just how it’s going to go. I’m just letting you guys know.”
For Tfue, who has won multiple Fortnite esports competitions alongside former partner Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lapore and is widely considered to be the most popular streamer of the game on Twitch, to come out and say he thinks Season 11 could be the end of the battle royale title shows how frustrated he is with the current state of the game.
Following a break from streaming during September, the American returned and immediately started complaining about aim assist, and has since been criticized by Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins about his opinion on the game.
Fortnite Season 11 is currently scheduled to kick off on the week beginning October 14, but it seems clear that Tfue isn’t excited about the prospect of a major update to the game.
