Epic respond to #AddTheBook by adding a book for SypherPK in Season 5

Epic Games proved that they listen to community feedback by adding a small book to Fortnite Season 5 based on SypherPK’s ‘How to Win’ series.

Fortnite Season 5 added a lot of new things to the game. One of the more under-the-radar changes involved SypherPK’s proposed book at the Weather Station.

Towards the end of Season 4, Twitch streamer and YouTuber Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan had an idea. Since Epic seemed to be listening to the community and responding to popular memes, he wanted to create one of his own.

Sypher has had a Fortnite video series since he started playing the game: “How to Win.” In a video released ahead of the Season 4 update, he called for his fans to lobby Epic to add a “How to Win” book to the Weather Station – the Chapter 2 POI he frequents during many of his recordings.

When Season 5 was released, Sypher’s fans flooded the Weather Station, looking for a red book. Sure enough, the book was there. Not only was the book at the Weather Station, but it was indestructible, leading unaware players to wonder why there was an invincible red book at one of the longstanding Chapter 2 POIs.

After staying up all night for the patch, Sypher was ecstatic to see his creation in-game. One of the most dedicated Fortnite streamers on any platform might not have an Icon Series skin or even a skin bundle, but he has his book.

Sypher tweeted his on-stream reaction to seeing the book for the first time. “It doesn’t break, bro!” he said, giddy with laughter. “This is my creation! We actually added something to the game!”

In some ways, this is better than having an Icon Series skin in Fortnite. Unaware Redditors began posting clips of the book, wondering what it is. It’s an Easter Egg for Sypher fans and an immediate way to decipher (no pun intended) who is and isn’t in on the joke.

Hopefully, Epic continue to add some creator-focused Easter Eggs to Fortnite. Following Sypher’s method, all it would take is a popular creator making a small request in one of their videos.

SypherPK, Loserfruit, and other Fortnite Creators receive mysterious DVDs of Crop Circle footage

Several DVDs containing crop circle footage have been sent out to Fortnite creators following the leak of an imminent alien invasion.

Just after Fortnite update v16.50 revealed an impending alien invasion, content creators started to receive mysterious DVD players containing DVDs of crop circle footage.

Fortnite v16.50 threw players a curveball once dataminers revealed that aliens would be invading the game. Starting towards the end of Chapter 2 Season 6, UFOs will randomly abduct players and teleport them to different locations on the map. There are also various quests that point towards the existence of extraterrestrial lifeforms.

A lot of fans are speculating that this means Season 7 will be themed around aliens. However, there’s more than just datamined files that suggest this. A few Fortnite content creators have received packages in the mail containing portable DVD players and a DVD titles “They’re Coming”.

Crop Circle DVDs might be related to Fortnite

Creators AussieAntics and Martyn Littlewood were among the first to post about the mysterious DVD players. According to them, there was no indication it was from Epic Games or related to Fortnite. However, only people who are notable Fortnite creators received these packages.

It was later confirmed that LoserFruit, a creator who has her own Fortnite skin, also received a similar package. She shared footage of the DVD while streaming on Twitch. Streamer SypherPK also received a DVD player and shared the crop circle footage with his stream as well. Interestingly enough, each creator’s DVD showed a different crop circle located somewhere in the real world.

While there hasn’t been any confirmation from Epic Games or Fortnite that this is related to the game, this wouldn’t be the first time Fortnite dabbled in alternate-reality teasers. For Fortnite Chapter 1 Season 5, Epic Games erected several real-world statues and riddled secret codes within the game. This is seemingly another stunt to raise anticipation for Chapter 2 Season 7.

With Season 7 being a few days away, Fortnite is starting to hype up its arrival. It’s no coincidence that the discovery of aliens coming to Fortnite occurred simultaneously to creators receiving crop circle footage. Season 7 starts on June 8 when Fortnite is invaded by aliens.

Clix promises change following backlash from controversial laxative tweet

Cody “Clix” Conrod promisesto be more mature while streaming and on social media following his Fortnite Creator Code being disabled.

After Pro Fortnite player and Cody “Clix” Conrod had his Support-a-Creator code disabled, he promises to start being more mature while streaming and on social media.

16-year-old Conrod posted a tasteless tweet on May 11, 2021, that involved putting laxatives in a girl’s drink without her knowledge. While the tweet was meant as a joke, Epic Games saw it as unacceptable behavior from someone representing its platform.

As a result of the tweet, Epic Games disabled Clix’s Fortnite Creator Code and also removed Clix’s name from featured creative maps. Soon after facing these repercussions, Clix posted a series of remorseful tweets stating that he knew what he had tweeted was wrong.

Clix promises to be more mature

A few days after his Creator Code was disabled, Clix posted another tweet promising a change. He stated that he would be more mature during streams and on all social media platforms. Clix stated, “I just love f*cking around and being myself, but with the huge community I have, I needa start setting an example.”

Clix has amassed 3.9M followers on Twitch and 1.7M on Twitter. Many of his followers believe his actions weren’t “that bad” or that they should be excused because of his age. However, Clix now seems to understand the responsibility that comes with having such a massive following.

As of right now, Epic Games hasn’t re-enabled Clix’s code, and his name is still removed from several featured maps. It’s unknown how much Clix will suffer financially from the loss of his code. Fellow NRG member and Fortnite streamer Ronaldo recently revealed that he hadn’t even seen $1M from his creator code. Yet, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins claims he was able to make $5M from his code in a single month.

It’s too early to see if Clix will keep his promise to become a more mature streamer. His sorrowful tweets could be a knee-jerk reaction to facing backlash. Or, it could be the product of self-reflection. Only time will tell whether Clix is really turning over a new leaf, or if his immature sense of humor will get the best of him.

Ninja claims he made $5M from his Fortnite Creator Code in a single month

During his return to Fortnite, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins claimed he once made $5M in a single month from his Creator Code.

During a recent stream on Twitch, gaming superstar Tyler “Ninja” Blevins claimed that he made $5 million in a single month through Fortnite’s Creator Code program.

Epic Games first introduced the Support-a-Creator code program back in 2018. In the middle of Chapter 1 Season 6, players could enter a code while purchasing items from the shop. A small portion of each sale would then go to the creator whose code was used.

This eventually branched out into other games owned by Epic Games. Rocket League content creators and streamers have their own codes that can be used in the item shop. While it isn’t too difficult to qualify for a Fortnite Creator Code, it takes a lot to turn a decent profit.

Ninja makes $5M from Fortnite Creator Code

Yesterday, May 13, 2021, Ninja returned to Fortnite live for the first time in months. While playing with pro-player NRG Ronaldo, the two started to discuss wages earned from their Creator Codes. Ninja stated, “I think the most I’ve ever made in a month off of the Creator Code was like five-mil. I’m not joking.

While there hasn’t been any physical evidence showing that Tyler “Ninja” Blevins has made this much money, it wouldn’t be surprising. Ninja was once the largest streamer on Twitch and has made multiple million-dollar deals since his peak.

Ninja has proven in the past that he is more than capable of taking advantage of situations like the Fortnite Creator Code program. When Twitch introduced its Prime Subscriptions, fellow streamer Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek accused Ninja of sub botting. When in reality, Ninja continuously plugged and encouraged his viewers to sign up for Twitch Prime and use their free subscriptions on his stream.

Since returning to Twitch after being bought out of his contract with Mixer, Ninja has seemed quiet compared to his career’s peak. He’s no longer flossing by himself in Time Square or playing Fortnite at Coachella.

That being said, Ninja’s remarkable gaming career has yet to be matched by someone else. Even with the likes of Grefg pulling millions of viewers in a single stream, or Dr. Lupo who raises millions of dollars a year for charity. Ninja’s presence in the media outside of gaming is what separates him from the rest of the gaming community.
