The two players considered to be the best Fortnite Battle Royale players, Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore started a petition asking for Epic Games to delay the final week of World Cup qualifiers due to the Fortnite Pro-Am conflicting schedules.
The Fortnite Pro-Am will be returning this year featuring the top competitive players teaming up with celebrities across different industries.
Tons of top professionals are scheduled to participate in the event, however, the Pro-Am also falls on the last week of Fortnite World Cup duo qualifiers which is creating a bit of a scheduling conflict for athletes.
Tfue and Cloak have yet to qualify as a duo for the World Cup and they are both on the bill to participate in the Pro-Am from June 15 to June 16.
FaZe Clan’s Fortnite captain tweeted out on June 3 asking for Epic Games to push back the final week of duo qualifiers.
Can we start a petition to push back the final week of duo qualifiers so people can play and watch the Pro-Am tourney/block party event? For some genius reason they’re on the same day.— Creator code: cloakzy (@cloakzy) June 3, 2019
“Can we start a petition to push back the final week of duo qualifiers so people can play and watch the Pro-Am tourney/block party event?”
Tfue later retweeted a tweet by Ewok, also invited to participate in the Fortnite Pro-Am, asking Epic to push the final week of qualifiers to June 22.
Hey @EpicGames @FortniteGame 3 top reasons to postpone Duo Week 10 to June 22-23:— EWOK 🤟 (@EwokIts) June 3, 2019
1) Fortnite gets more viewership for each the Pro-Am on 15-16 & same for last WC quals on 22-23.
2) Everyone associated with Pro-Am can get more investment.
3) @Ninja @Reverse2k_ @TTfue @cloakzy 😁
Finally, TheFortniteGuy tweeted that, “Tfue and Cloakzy are basically being forced to choose between the Pro Am celebrity tournament and the last chance for the to qualify as a duo? WTF?”
The Floridian Fortnite star replied back with a simple gif with text reading, “No lies detected” with the background consisting of a lie detector.
The morale around competitive Fortnite Battle Royale events isn’t exactly high since a previous duo who was suspended for cheating re-qualified for the World Cup to the community’s disappointment.
Epic Games does listen to the community, however, it remains to be seen if they will be able to switch the dates around to accommodate players.
