Fortnite star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has explained why players have started quitting the game and what Epic Games needs to do to revitalize the battle royale title.

Even though Fortnite Chapter 2 came with a tonne of hype around it after the black hole event of season ten, players have been airing their frustrations with Epic Games after a lack of changes since the first major update.


Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has already talked about why the developers need to pull out something special with their next update but Tfue, who is now the biggest name streaming on Twitch, has joined his calls for a few major changes in the next update.

Fortnite Chapter 2 came with plenty of hype but has become stale for a lot of players.

During a recent stream, the Fortnite star had become frustrated by how he was being killed by controller players in the Cash Cup event – noting that they had the able to track his movement despite being unable to see him. 


So, instead of carrying on, Tenney dropped the game and headed elsewhere, airing his thoughts on why the game has become “boring” without a lack of updates.

“I’m going to play Tarkov obviously dude, I’m not playing f**king Fortnite, it is so boring,” he said upon exiting the game and loading up Tarkov. “Even when I was on zero ping it was f**king boring dude. They need to come out with a new season ASAP bro. Like, no one wants to play the same s**t over and over again. It’s so f**king boring dude.”

As he claimed that “no one wants to play” the seemingly repetitive battle royale, Tfue noted that some of his friends have been quitting altogether, heading for pastures new.


“Every player on mouse and keyboard is just quitting, that is the problem. Legit, like no one plays mouse and keyboard on Fortnite anymore unless you’re like a streamer or sweat dude,” he added. “Like, all my IRL friends that play with PC mouse and keyboard – and I’m like ‘do you still play?’ – and they’re like nope, don’t play. My friends on controller are like ‘yeah, I still play.’”

While some annoyed players can overdo their complaints, Tfue’s concerns are pretty valid and shared throughout the community – not just with streamers and competitive players.

Whether or not Epic’s shakeup with Chapter 2, Season 2 will meet his expectations remains to be seen, but we won’t have to wait much longer, as season one comes to a close on February 20.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.


With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.


As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.

FNCS isn’t the only competition coming to Fortnite Season 4. Weekly Cash Cups for Solos and Trios will be returning, while the Dreamhack Online Open (Solo) will also take place across NA and Europe.

With players set to earn up to $111,000 for winning the whole tournament, you can rest assured that there will be plenty of action when the action kicks off.
