Why Tfue and Cloak may not stream Fortnite FNCS Week 2

Fortnite pro Khanada has been banned which might end up preventing both Dennis ‘Cloak‘ Lepore and Turner ‘Tfue‘ Tenney from streaming the second week of the FNCS.

Twitch has a policy where streamers aren’t allowed to have other banned streamers appear on their streams.

This rule was put to the test when Khanada had fellow pro Zayn appear on his stream, which resulted in a three-day ban. He even says he had Zayn muted so his audio wouldn’t come through on the broadcast, but the ban was still handed out.

Zayn was banned for a third time on October 29, making this one indefinite.

He claims he was watching streamers on another account, which Twitch found out about so they dinged him for ban evasion.

This untimely ban of Khanada couldn’t have a really come at a worse time as it could end up having a major impact on two of the biggest Fortnite streamers out there in Tfue and Cloak.

The two former FaZe Clan pros compete in the FNCS with Liquid Fiber and Khanada as a teammate, and now that Khanada has been banned, they won’t be able to stream their games if they want to remain unbanned from Twitch.

The FNCS weekends usually result in a monster view count for Tfue on Twitch, so having him potentially miss the event entirely due to this ban would be huge.

Of course, the squad will still be able to compete but it’s sounding like nobody will be able to stream the event now thanks to this ban.

Unless Twitch overturns this ban, it seems likely that this will be the case. Tfue hasn’t said much about his plans but did express some anger and disappointment on Twitter.

If this squad isn’t able to stream, that won’t take away the sheer talent they have as they finished in fifth place for Week 1 and will be looking to improve upon that for the next week.

It’s not the end of the world if they miss a stream for a weekend, it just means viewers will have to find somebody else to watch instead.

Fortnite’s hotly-anticipated Galactus event, coming soon as the Season 4 finale, is the talk of the town; from when the Marvel character will make his mark, to how you can watch it in-game, here’s everything you need to know.

A bright object in the sky has begun hurtling towards the Fortnite map, and thanks to datamining and logic, it seems only reasonable to suggest that Galactus is on his way to cause destruction.

Similar to the devastation caused by the Season 1 meteor, you would have to think that his intentions are not good. It seems we’re gearing up for a massive battle featuring every Marvel character currently in the game.

The original Fortnite meteor was first spotted a month and a half before it landed – destroying Dusty Depot – and the same type of impact appears to be on the horizon.

Fortnite Galactus event start date and time

Such is the hype surrounding the appearance of Galactus that he’s taken an incredibly long time to appear. However, his arrival is finally set in stone.

The Nexus War finale event is a one-time spectacle set to kick off on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 PM ET | 1 PM PT | 9 PM GMT.

Some leaks of the upcoming event have made their way to the internet which depicts Thor, She-Hulk, Wolverine, and Iron Man offering themselves as soldiers to fight Galactus.

Fighting Galactus to end the Nexus War will be a one-time event. No replays for this historic battle.

The event itself could see the superheroes taking on Galactus in the form of a raid. Or you could possibly have Galactus taking on the whole lobby, or a Thanos-inspired mode akin to Chapter 1.

Galactus is officially listed as being 28ft tall and that in itself could offer some interesting gameplay options. Given that this will close out a season-long Nexus War, there’s a good chance you’ll have a ton of manual input here. So expect to help the heroes in their fight.

First look at Galactus

With the use of one of the game’s sniper rifles, it’s possible for players to look through the scope, at the object in the sky, and spy him. He’s obviously been getting closer and closer over the season, but thanks to new leaks, we’ve got a better look at the figure than ever before.

It turns out there’s actually a standard sized Galactus skin in the game’s files. Perhaps we’ll be able to run around as the Devourer of Worlds after the event. Only time will tell.

Here are some datamined images of Galactus’ model, too.

The main rumor concerning Phase 4 of the MCU is that Galactus will indeed be the archetypal villain of the main films. The Devourer of Worlds quite literally does what he says on the tin, and his power is unmatched.

The Fortnite tie-in will be a great way to introduce casual fans to the presence of one of the universe’s most powerful, cosmic entities.

We’ve also got a look at where Galactus is. It seems he’s positioned right about the ruins POI in-game from this screenshot from Fortnite leaker, Fevers.

Rising Out of the Water

ShiinaBR also tweeted on November 22, 2020 that Galactus has slowly begun to rise out of the water. We’ll make sure to update this article when we have a better look at this.

Lazing Device

On November 4, Fortnite data miner Mang0e tweeted about a mysterious new weapon in the works. Hardly anything is known about what this ‘Lazing Device’ is. However, Mang0e believes it could perhaps be a prototype for the upcoming Cosmos rifle.

Its base stats are that of the Bolt Sniper Rifle, which is the same as the Cosmos ones, too. Mang0e goes on to say in their Twitter thread that this is all speculation, however, but rebuffs his claims by saying that they were right about the Slurp Bazooka in the past.
