Fortnite esports is not in a great place. The latest person to get frustrated is the highest earning Fortnite player of all time.
Ghost Gaming’s Bizzle is one of the best players in the game right now. He took the top spot in the Fortnite prize pool winnings from Tfue after winning the Secret Skirmish and finishing fourth at Katowice Royale.
He qualified for the World Cup in the first week of solo qualifiers by finishing third in NA-East.
That didn’t stop him from competing this weekend as well, even though he has his spot wrapped up, placing well still brings in money.
But he may be reconsidering that now. After a delay caused him to miss out on some loot on a drop, he was taken out and absolutely raged at Epic Games.
“I’m ending the stream. I don’t even want to fucking play this anymore. This is so fucking dumb. SO FUCKING DUMB. Fuck you Fortnite, it’s a fuckin shit game.”

So yeah, pretty aggressive there. He continues on to say that he wants to play counter-strike (CS:GO).
“I can’t believe I play this game. I want to play Counter-Strike. Fortnite, how do you fuck up the looting so bad that when I land on a pistol I can’t pick up the fucking ammo? Fucking idiots working at Epic, idiots. They don’t respond to my DMs anymore. I try to help the game and they fucking ruin it.”
In defense of Fortnite, CS:GO was the fourth game in the Counter-Strike series with the first one being released in 2000.
Over the years, there have been plenty of bugs in CS too. While that game is much cleaner now, it wasn’t always that way. Fortnite Battle Royale has only had about two years from initial concept to now.
That type of time frame is unheard of in game design which should give Epic Games a bit of leeway.
The counter to that argument is that they put down $100 million in prizes over 2018-19, and it is reasonable for players to expect an esports ready game for such large sums of money.
It is also important to note that while Bizzle said he was going to stop the stream and stop playing the game, he had already queued up another match. He clicked “Ready” while he was saying “fuckin shit game.”
