Tensions have been incredibly high among Fortnite Battle Royale community members since the release of Season 10.

In terms of Fortnite Battle Royale history, no other Season has been as controversial as Season X in recent memory.


The BRUTEs have become one of, if not the most, hated additions in Fortnite, with scores of streamers, content creators, and professional players lashing out at Epic Games for such a decision.

Even after the immense backlash, Epic doubled-down on the BRUTEs by saying they will remain in the game due to the studio’s ‘philosophy’ of making sure every player has a chance to have fun.

This, unfortunately, has led to a collection of issues. Numerous high-profile streamers have decided to play other games until the issue is resolved.

Most recently, 100 Thieves’ Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop announced on August 22 that he will no longer be playing in the $400,000 Twitch Rivals Fortnite tournament, and will instead just stream Minecraft.

CouRage keeps breaking a number of personal viewer records while playing Minecraft on stream and looks to continue his momentum by deciding to not play Fortnite at all.

This is a fairly significant decision by CouRage, due to the fact that he is choosing to forgo the chance at a massive prize pool just to get away from the BRUTE and Fortnite, in general.

CouRage has been incredibly outspoken about how broken the Mechs are in Fortnite ever since the beginning of Season 10. While playing with TimTheTatMan on August 22, his annoyance seemed to reach a boiling point after getting killed by a BRUTE.

With all these enormous streamers and high profile content creators deciding to play other games, who knows what will happen to Fortnite on Twitch and other platforms.

Do you think it was the right decision for CouRage to stop playing in the $400,000 Twitch Rivals Fortnite tournament? Let us know below!
