Will Tfue switch from Fortnite to Apex Legends?

FaZe’s Fortnite, but with the rise of Apex Legends seemingly putting a cloud of doubt in his mind about the future of the Epic Games title, will he be tempted to jump ship? 

Tfue used his success playing Battle Royale to elevate his Twitch channel during 2018 and claims to have the most subscribers on the platform so far, as a result. 

However, some of his actions and criticisms since the release of Apex Legends suggest that he’s not too happy with the current state of Fortnite. 

Epic GamesTfue has also complained about Fortnite’s Tilted Towers, saying it should be removed by Epic Games.

These frustrated sentiments first appeared when the streamer slapped two big labels on Epic’s free-to-play title, calling it “boring” and then “stale” between February 11-12, just under a week after Respawn Entertainment shocked the world by not just revealing but releasing its new battle royale game. 

Since then, Apex Legends has attracted over 25 million players and looks to be providing solid competition to Fortnite – sparking some extraordinary predictions from not just Tfue but also Dr Disrespect.

Both popular internet personalities have predicted that the game will “die” in the next year, with The Doc guaranteeing his viewers that the game’s craze will soon finished because people won’t want to be associated with the product. 

“It will die in a year because people will be embarrassed to be associated with it,” he guaranteed. “The product sucks and no-one really, really, really, really, really thinks it’s quality. It’s terrible.” 

Whether or not their predictions will come to fruition remains to be seen, as Fortnite has teased a number of exciting new changes to the game for Season 8 – which is expected to go live on February 28. 

Despite the FaZe Clan member previously saying Apex Legends is not better than Fortnite, if Tfue does truly believe that it will die in the next year, surely he will want to be associated with another money-making opportunity. That could be Respawn’s game. 

Respawn EntertainmentA lot of popular Fortnite streamers have tried Apex Legends, like Ninja, CouRageJD and others.

After all, he’s already pulled out of the ESL Katowice Royale tournament and has even discussed the idea of ditching the Fortnite World Cup Finals as well – which will have a $30 million prize pool. 

If he’s not happy with the current state of the game, is predicting that it will die in the next year and doesn’t plan on competing at upcoming tournaments, there is a chance that his switch to another game could be closer than some might think. 

There is a chance that Tfue is concerned that his Twitch following is made up of mostly Fortnite fans, though, in which case it would make a permanent switch-up of games particularly difficult. 

However, there’s nothing stopping him giving it a try. In fact, it’s starting to look quite likely indeed.

Apex Legends developer Daniel Klein has revealed the five most popular legends from Season 7 – and it should come as no surprise that Horizon is right up there already.

As the Apex Legends seasons have unfolded, it’s been easy for players to chop and change the legends they use seeing as a new character is introduced which each major, season starting update. 

The new character always receives huge attention as players want to test out the new content, but sometimes, they don’t stick around and can immediately fall to the bottom of the pile once fans are seemingly bored with them. 

In the case of Horizon and Apex Legends Season 7, she has been able to stick around as one of the most played legends – even cementing her spot amongst some of the battle royale’s long-term favorites.

Speaking on The Third Party: An Apex Legends podcast, Respawn Senior Game Designer Daniel Klein revealed how the list of most played legends in the new season had started to shape up.

“Wraith, Bloodhound, Horizon, Octane, and then Lifeline, that’s the pick order right now,” Klein told the podcast hosts in relation to the top five, noting that Horizon had started to settle in the top five after her initial explosion in use. 

Octane being so high might surprise a few players, and as Klein points out, he doesn’t “win a lot of games,” but he’s so fun to play because of his speedy abilities. Klein also noted that there is an “interesting situation” with Bloodhound because they have a high pick rate, but they don’t win a lot of games.

Additionally, the Apex developer revealed that Loba has also seen a rise in her trios win rate after her Ultimate received a bit of a shake up at the start of Season 7. Though, he didn’t note just how popular and used that she has become. 

As the season unfolds, some currently lesser-played legends might see a boost in usage after Respawn rolls out patches, so, we’ll have to wait and see as to whether or not the top five is shaken up or if it stays the same moving forward.
