Tfue & Fortnite pros hit out at Epic Games over ‘unplayable’ Season 3

Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and his teammates scoped and innocents, have hit out at Epic Games over the ‘unplayable’ state of Fortnite Season 3, as players continue to struggle with servers and in-game lag. 

Tfue is one Fortnite player who has transcended the building battle royale. Now one of the biggest names in the entire gaming community, he can be found playing other games like Warzone and Hyper Scape.


Regardless, he still competes in Fortnite’s trio tournaments, now alongside innocents and scoped. The trio were playing together on July 16, when they decided to go on the offensive against a team in Catty Corner.

Tfue is one of the biggest names in the gaming world.

However, their attack was halted by some very intrusive packet loss and lag, causing all the players to vocalize their frustrations with Epic.


“Like how is this f**king game playable dude?” Tfue’s teammates ask. “The servers are so awful dude. This is making me want to f**king quit, dude. Fix your f**king game [Creative Director at Epic Games] Donald Mustard what the f**k am I playing?”

Tfue, for his part, commented that he’s “going to sh*t out his eyes, in-game. I can’t f**king move! Bro I’m about to get another f**king watermelon, dude, it’s so bad!” We’re not quite sure what that means, but it doesn’t sound overly complimentary.

Despite Fortnite rapidly approaching three years old, many prominent players have commented that the general server stability has got worse in Season 3. These issues have reared their heads in competitive Fortnite, with many players reporting significant lag in tournament matches.


The lag frustrations are probably a motivating factor for Tfue heading over to other titles. Recent streams have seen him in Verdansk, racking up some big kill wins on Call of Duty’s sophomore battle royale.

As far as Epic Games are concerned, they have not commented on the latency/connection issues, at least not publicly. For the latest from the developers, you can follow @FortniteStatus on Twitter.

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 Week 2: October 16 – October 18

The first day of each week will be an open qualifier. If you make the top 33 teams, you’ll be invited to play in the next two days for a chance to make it to the Finals.


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.
