Tfue takes cheeky shot at Cloak over Fortnite World Cup qualifying failures

Turner ‘Tfue‘ Tenney and Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lapore are still attempting to qualify for the Fortnite World Cup, and Tfue has hilariously placed the blame on his duo partner after Cloak failed to answer his calls and texts.

Friday, June 21 is the final day of Fortnite World Cup qualifiers, with duos attempting to secure one of the remaining spots in the $30 million tournament.

Tfue has already qualified for the tournament and will compete in the solos tournament, and with the pair yet to make it together, Tfue sarcastically blamed his friend and partner for their unsuccessful qualifying campaign.

Instagram: CloakThey may be friends, but that didn’t stop Tfue from blaming him.

While playing with Tom ‘72hrs’ Mulligan, the pair found themselves without their duos, with the Team Liquid player saying that Noah ‘Vivid’ Wright had gone out for dinner, despite him “begging” Vivid to stay in and scrim. 

Like a scorned teenager upset that their crush isn’t texting them back, Tfue joked that he didn’t know where Cloak was because he wasnt replying to his calls or messages: “I don’t even know! Where even is Dennis dude? He didn’t reply to any of my calls. This guy wants to qualify for the World Cup and he doesn’t even play Fortnite, shows what kind of friend he is, dude. He hasn’t replied to my texts all day”

Tfue later found out that Cloak had accidentally leaked his number on stream, and had changed his number, but that didn’t appear to be a good enough reason to skip practice, at least not according to the Californian.

“How did you leak your fucking name on stream?” asked a bemused Tfue. “Who’s got the clip? He’s going to try to say that’s the reason he didn’t reply, but I’m pretty sure I fucking DMed him on Twitter, so where’s his excuse now?”

“Cloak doesn’t even play Fortnite anymore, I just need Cloak to actually practice. I practice all day every day, that’s why I qualified!”

Of course, Tfue and Cloak are actually good friends, with the pair even spending some time living together in New York City, so his comments were very tongue-in-cheek as they head into the Week 10 Finals.

Only four teams from North America will qualify from the last week of events, so both Tfue and Cloak will have to be on top form if they hope to compete in the World Cup Finals in July.

Fortnite World Cup champion David ‘aqua’ Wang has apologized after being handed a ban from playing in the FNCS by Epic Games amid allegations of stream sniping.

Following the Fortnite Championship Series Week 3 trio semis, Aqua and his trio, Rezon and Noahreyli, were accused of stream sniping of other players. 

Aqua, who claimed glory at the Fortnite World Cup duos event back in July of 2019, was spotted by fans in MrSavage’s Twitch chat, which only added fuel to the fire when he was handed a two-week ban from FNCS action by Epic. 

Initially, the reason had been unknown as Epic didn’t give an explanation, leaving players questioning what had happened. However, Aqua has since apologized and revealed the reason behind his suspension.

The Cooler esports pro lifted the lid on his ban on October 25, revealing that he wasn’t banned for stream sniping, but because of two tweets he’d made being in violation of Epic’s rules. 

“I am sorry that I acted against my own competitive principles by leaving the game before being eliminated, and I fully understand the warning Epic gave me during the Week 3 finals,” Aqua stated, noting that he was not aware of just how big a punishment the dev could issue for his jokes. 

“I accept the warning for leaving the game and also that my tweets were poorly timed and uncalled for,” Aqua continued, adding that he is “sad” to be missing out on competing with his teammates because of the ban, and that he promises to do better moving forward. 

The Cooler esports star isn’t out of action permanently, however, as he will be able to return in two weeks time once his suspension is up, but his teammates will need a replacement in the meantime. 

Given his apology, and promise to learn from what’s happened, it remains to be seen if Epic will enforce the ban for the full two weeks, or if he’s given some leeway so that he can return sooner.
