FaZe Clan’s Cloakzy can’t practice for the Fortnite World Cup and he’s livid

Published

on

Ever since the v8.20 update on April 3, competetive and casual Fortnite players have been incredibly upset about health siphon being removed along with the poor state of Fortnite’s meta.

Fortnite Season 8 has certainly been interesting, as Epic Games decided to remove the highly controversial X4-Stormwing vehicle with The Baller.

Players were hoping for a season where the meta would allow fans to properly practice for the Fortnite World Cup, with qualifiers kicking off next week on April 13.

Why is FaZe Cloak upset?

The Fortnite World Cup is offering a record breaking $40 million to top players!

FaZe Clan’s Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore was practicing for the World Cup with Tim ‘TimTheTatMan’ Betar and Ben ‘DrLupo’ Lupo when they began discussing the recent changes in resolution for competition.

Epic Games recently made an announcement that all competitions will be played on native resolution, which upset several competitors as they have been playing on stretched resolutions for months.

“So qualifiers are ten weeks, right? Three of the ten weeks will be on this meta. First off, this meta is terrible. You are going to have people who are going to breeze by the [Fortnite] World Cup by abusing balls and have a chance to qualify.”

Cloak continued on with his rant with, “Then after the three weeks of the ten weeks, it goes on to a new season. So there is going to be a brand new map, brand new mobility, brand new everything, for the last seven weeks of the qualifiers.”

“And then, World Cup, is played on a weekend. The week before the World Cup is a new season! So the World Cup isn’t played on this season, the world cup isn’t played on next season, it’s played on the season after that. So you can’t practice for anything.”

When is the Fortnite World Cup?

Cloak has extremely valid points, as Fortnite players have been begging Epic Games to make the game easier to adapt for upcoming tournaments, but Epic continues to give competitive Fortnite players the short end of the stick.

The qualifiers for the Fortnite World Cup will begin on April 13, and last ten weeks until the second week of June.

The Fortnite World Cup event will be held in New York City from July 26 to July 28.

It will be interesting to see who impresses at the Fortnite World Cup, since popular streamers and pros have already commented on how they don’t expect the event to go well.

Epic will be giving out $1 million each week of the ten-week qualifiers, along with a huge $40 million prize pool for the main Fortnite World Cup event in New York City.

Fortnite v13.20 Update patch notes

Published

on

It’s a new week, and that means that there’s a fresh update for us all to enjoy, as the Fortnite v12.30 patch goes live on all platforms on Tuesday, June 30, introducing a new weapon and a major change to an existing item.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 has been live for a few weeks, and while the first major update of the season made sweeping changes to the game, Epic haven’t sat on their hands, dropping the 13.10 update to add Firefly Jars, and a second patch on June 30.

The Flare Gun and Portable Upgrade Benches are the major inclusions in this week’s patch, and we’ve got everything you need to know about the new items.

Flare Gun

Epic love to include new weapons for us to try out, and the v13.20 Update is no exception, with the Flare Gun finally making it’s long-awaited debut in the game.

The weapon, which holds six cartridges and deals 60 damage on a direct hit, was first spotted in the game’s files all the way back in Chapter 1, but for one reason or another never made it to the full game. Finally, though, it’s arrived, and with its ability to start fires, it is the perfect way to burn through enemy structures and send them back to the pre-game lobby.

The Flare Gun is the latest weapon added to Fortnite.

Portable Upgrade Bench

The other major change is the to the Upgrade Bench, which can now be broken and carried around to be used whenever you need it.

Simply hit it with your harvesting tool and it will transform into floor loot, which you can pick up and place in your inventory.

The Upgrade Bench can now be broken.

New Items

Loserfruit Fortnite skin bundle: Leak and release date

Loserfruit Fortnite skin

The next cosmetic item in Fortnite’s Icon series, this time for streamer Loserfruit, has been leaked, with the release date all but confirmed for June 21.

Following on from Ninja’s skin release earlier in the year, Loserfruit, one of the most popular Australian streamers, has been waiting on her skin coming to the game for months now.

Its initial launch was pushed back due to ongoing protests around the world, but it looks like it’s finally getting a proper release.

On June 21, a handful of leakers got their hands on the encrypted files for the skin, and accessed them, showcasing a full, high-quality look at the skin we’ll soon be able to rock in-game.

Featuring a replica of Loserfruit’s hoody with rainbow-colored arms, the arm portions light up spectacularly, and there is also a backpack that mirrors her own real-life version.

Loserfruit skin release date and price

The skin is set to release on June 21, now confirmed by Epic Games. Reliable data miner iFireMonkey says that a source has confirmed this date for the entire bundle.

The bundle includes a fruity pickaxe too, as well as the Bounce Berry emote.

The skin will be available at 8pm ET. It will cost 1,500 V-Bucks for just the skin, or 2,000 for the whole bundle.

Loserfruit herself is actually already rocking the skin in-game on her stream, thanks to exclusive access before the rest of us, so you can see it in action here.

We’ll keep you updated when the skin bundle is available to purchase in the item shop.

When does Fortnite Season 3 end and Season 4 begin?

Find out the Fortnite Season 3 end date and Season 4 start date for 2020.

Published

We’re only a couple of days into Fortnite Season 3, but fans are already wondering when the next season will come. We’re not sick of the new season – far from it. The past couple of seasons have lasted about 120 days each, though, so it’s not crazy to hope that this one is significantly shorter.

When Fortnite Season 3 released, data miners were quick to tell everyone how much time was left in the season. At the time of release, Epic had an end date of August 27, 2020. That’s only 71 days long, which is quite reasonable.

Not so fast, though. Data miner FireMonkey was quick to point out that the number of weekly challenges doesn’t match an 11-week season. There are already 12 weeks worth of challenges in the game files, which would have Season 3 ending on September 3.

This isn’t out of the ordinary. Epic have, traditionally, extended seasons for an extra week or two with Overtime Challenges. The past two seasons, which were both extended over a month past their original end-date, are still outliers in the history of Fortnite seasons.

A one-week extension is nothing major. We can live with that – and will even enjoy the Overtime Challenges that Epic give us. There’s no need to panic, right now, but the season will likely be extended at least one time.

Normally, this wouldn’t be something we’d cover so early in a Fortnite season, but the recent history of lengthy seasons makes us wonder if this one will follow suit. Hopefully, we’ll be playing Season 4 by September 4.
