Fortnite star Turner ‘Tfue‘ Tenney took some amusing shots at the game’s servers and controller aim assist after being asked for a few tips from a hopeful player.

While it is still one of the top multiplayer games in the world, and certainly the most popular battle royale title, Fortnite hasn’t been without its issues – especially when it comes to trying to turn your casual play into a professional career.

In recent weeks players have voiced their concerns with new freezing issues, and have also taken shots at the aim assist given to competitors who use a controller instead of keyboard and mouse. Some have shown off just how ridiculous it is – comparing it to an aimbot – while others, like Tfue, have mocked just how easy they believe it is to use a controller

Tfue was one of the early standouts in the competitive Fortnite scene but failed to make his mark at the World Cup.

So, when one fan decided to donate $20 and ask for some tips on how to improve their Fortnite skill, you could easily guess that the popular streamer was going to take some shots at the game’s issues.

“Well, if you don’t have low ping you better move. If you’re on mouse and keyboard, you better switch to a controller and then you just practice,” said Tfue, much to the enjoyment of his viewers who burst out into laughter spam.

“If you’re not on linear jumping into people’s boxes then switch to legacy, those are some big tips I can give for you,” he noted, adding some further ‘much-needed’ tips. “If you’re not under the age of 18 then, you know, drink a lot of caffeine and shoot stem cells into your eyes because that’s the only way you’re going to keep up. Other than that, I don’t know.”

While plenty of fans could have quickly seen how Tfue was joking, the debate about the game’s problems – especially controller versus keyboard and mouse, and the state of the servers – is still going to rumble on.

Whether or not Epic has plans to address these by, say, separating controller and KB/M players in future events, remains to be seen, but they may have to make a change to appease the current crop of players.

Fans of YouTube star Lannan ‘LazarBeam’ Eacott have been questioning whether or not he’s quit playing Fortnite after not uploading a gameplay video in a good while. 

The original rise of Fortnite saw creators from across the globe explode in popularity regardless of whether they were focused on livestreaming on Twitch or making videos for YouTube.

However, some of the original big names like Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, and Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff, among others, have turned away from Fortnite and decided to play games like Valorant and Warzone. 

Plenty of creators still remain, though, they have issues with a lack of updates, and how the competitive scene is being run, to name just a few problems. Now, fans of LazarBeam have been asking if he is following the likes of Ninja and Tfue, and walking away from Fortnite. 

Lazarbeam is one of the most popular Australian creators around.

Did LazarBeam quit Fortnite?

Even though his fellow Aussies like Fresh, Lachlan, and LoserFruit have carried on playing Fortnite, LazarBeam hasn’t uploaded a YouTube video about it since mid-December. Though, he has tweeted about it and played the battle royale since.

In that time of not uploading a Fortnite video, he’s made videos on Among Us and Spellbreak, while also uploading his usual meme reactions from TikTok, as well as a more personal video reflecting on how 2020 went for him. 

In a recent stream though, he did say he was quitting the game after uninstalling. “I’ve decided to uninstall Fortnite. I’ve quit the game. I’m quitting it right now,” LazarBeam said. “I’m done forever.” Though, it’s hard to say if he’s being totally serious, given that he is one of YouTube’s funniest creators.

Will LazarBeam return to Fortnite?

It could be the case that he returns to Epic Games’ battle royale soon, perhaps once a new update is released. 

Other content creators have done similar, taking breaks because the devs aren’t rolling out as many regular updates as they used to, and the game feels a bit stale. But, we’ll just have to wait and see if that’s the case for LazarBeam whenever v15.30 launches.
