Twitch megastar Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has shown sympathy towards Nate Hill, after it emerged that he’s been suspended from the Fortnite Fall Skirmish competition.
Ninja was broadcasting some Fortnite gameplay, when a member of his chat brought up the situation regarding the FaZe Clan member’s suspension.
Nate Hill was suspended when his teammate Funkbomb decided to watch a stream of the game they were in, and pass information on to Nate in an attempt to provide him with an advantage.
When asked his thoughts on the situation, Ninja replied; “It is what it is. What happened happened… You just got to know not to do that man”, making it clear that he didn’t condone the actions of the pair.
Blevins however does have sympathy for Nate Hill, and believes that the FaZe star didn’t ask Funkbomb to go and watch the stream. “I think it just happened, and he didn’t know it was going to”, remarked Ninja, “I don’t think Nate Hill had anything to do with it, just guilty by association.”
Nate Hill has been suspended for two weeks, but will be able to return to Fall Skirmish action when his punishment ends on October 11. Nate will still be a member of the Dusty Dogs club, and remain eligible for club prizing.
Funkbomb, however, has been banned for the rest of the Fall Skirmish, and is ineligible for any club prize money. He won’t be able to return to action until the Fall Skirmish event at TwitchCon on October 26.
