(Opinion) Tfue stubs his toe; blames controller player

Tfue continues to blame controller players in Fortnite, even though he’s getting beamed by PC players.

Tfue continues to blame controller players in Fortnite, even though he’s getting beamed by PC players.

Another day, another controller vs. keyboard and mouse debate. This has to be one of the most played-out rivalries in all of gaming, but here we are.

Last night was the Fortnite Streamer Bowl, featuring some of the biggest names in the game and in the NFL. The competition was one of the more entertaining Fortnite tournaments in recent memory, with Clix and Tarik Cohen coming out on top.

Tfue was a standout performer in the competition. He and Kyler Murray placed second, as the streamer fell victim to a 200-IQ trap play from Clix in the final game.

You can take a look at the best moments from the Streamer Bowl here. This article isn’t about that. It’s about Tfue’s inclination to blame controller players for all of his problems.

Tfue has a large role of turning “he’s on controller” into a full-blown meme. We saw this play out perfectly in the Streamer Bowl, as he got beamed and immediately blamed Aydan or Nickmercs. You know, a controller player.

When the broadcast panned-out, we saw Symfuhny was the one who shot him. Cue the Curb music.

This isn’t the first time that we’ve seen Tfue inaccurately accuse a controller player of shooting him. I’m sure that we see it all the time, but he called Bugha a controller player when they met in pubs last week.

Bugha, one of the top players in the game, had the audacity to be accurate with his shots. Tfue, clearly impressed, called Bugha a mobile player. Obviously, someone on keyboard and mouse couldn’t hit these shots, right?

There are some broken mechanics to the controller in Fortnite. Have you seen those clips of players aiming without touching their sticks? That’s a problem. Controller players aren’t above criticism. It has nothing to do with destroying people from range, however.

Tfue named Nickmercs and Aydan as possible players who beamed him during the Streamer Bowl. I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure that both of these players use Linear aim assist. Aiming from range with this setting is far more difficult than aiming with a mouse.

Sometimes, you just get lasered. It happens no matter what input you’re using. This game has bloom, which means you will get lucky and unlucky.

Obviously, Tfue isn’t alone. He’s just the biggest and best example of a player blaming all of their problems on controller players.

I’ll give it to you: there are some issues with using a controller on Fortnite. Still, it’s like people disregard the fact that players on keyboard and mouse have nearly every advantage in the book when facing a controller player.

There’s some nuance to be had, here, which is tough for the internet. People seem to be in either the “nerf controller players” or “stop complaining” camps. The truth lies somewhere in the middle.

You can’t deny, though, that it hurts your argument when Tfue complains about controller players every time he gets shot.

Epic delay Fortnite Season 3 & Device Event for the second time

The Device Event and Fortnite Season 3 have been delayed in the wake of nationwide protests in the US.

Epic Games have delayed Fortnite Season 3 and the Device Event for the second time. This decision comes following similar decisions from Sony and Activision, who delayed the PS5 reveal and Call of Duty season, respectively.

The team announced their decision in a blog post on June 3. The Device Event was moved from June 6 to June 15 and the new season was rescheduled for June 17.

“Recent events are a heavy reminder of ongoing injustices in society, from the denial of basic human rights to the impact of racism both overt and subtle against people of color,” they wrote in their blog post. “We’re acutely aware of the pain our friends, families, team members, players, and communities are experiencing.”

“The team is eager to move Fortnite forward, but we need to balance the Season 3 launch with time for the team to focus on themselves, their families, and their communities,” the post continued.

“The live event The Device will be delayed to Monday, June 15, and the Season 3 launch delayed to Wednesday, June 17. We know this delay comes on the heels of another one, and we appreciate your patience and understanding during these difficult times.”

Fortnite fans are disappointed by the news, but it was not unexpected. As we said, other publishers and studios have made similar decisions in the wake of recent real-world events.

The exact timing of the Device Event is still up in the air, as it’s now set to take place on a Monday rather than a Saturday. We’ll keep you posted with more news about Fortnite Season 3 as it comes.

Concepts

This spray concept would be one of the most-used emotes if added

This Fortnite spray concept is as simple as it is brilliant.

Sprays are one of the most forgotten cosmetic items in all of Fortnite. At least Banners have their own skins and emoticons allow you to use them after death. Sprays, on the other hand, tend to sit in everyone’s locker, unused.

There are a couple of sprays that get some attention, but Reddit user u/JewishGuyOnReddit had an idea that could beat all of them – and some of the most popular emotes that are already in Fortnite.

The idea is as simple as it is brilliant. Here’s what it is: “_____ was here.” That’s it. Imagine how awesome that would be. You could spraypaint your Gamertag or IGN all over the island.

This would be up there with some of the classic emotes as an instant purchase and a staple of the front wheel. You could even incorporate the dead body outline to show that you eliminated a player and tagged their spot.

Epic have incorporated a ton of fan-made cosmetic items, and we’d like to submit this one for their review. Let’s bring sprays back with this one!

Ninja goes off on ‘boring’ Fortnite Chapter 2: ready for a new Season

Ninja calls the recent Fortnite seasons “boring” but remains hopeful for Season 3.

Published

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 is second only to Chapter 2 Season 1 as the longest season in Fortnite history. This season, like the previous one, has also offered little in the way of new content to players who hop on the Battle Bus every day.

During a recent stream, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins unleashed his fury upon the recent state of Fortnite. He echoed the complaints of many longtime Fortnite players. His perspective might be a bit amplified by the number of hours he’s put into the game in the past year, but it’s relatable to many in the community.

“I don’t want to play Fortnite right now,” Ninja told his chat. “It’s boring, there’s nothing new/ I’m having a little bit of fun, sometimes, but we’ve been playing the same map … the only new places that they’ve added are places with Henchmen that beam you, and laser you, and s**t on your walls.”

In a moment of self-reflection, Ninja admitted that he’s starting to “sound like Turner (Tfue).” He acknowledged that he’s having more fun with Fortnite than other times in the past, but misses the variety that old Fortnite seasons brought us.

“It blows my mind that we were forced to play the very first Season 1 for, like, 120 days,” Ninja continued before looking at the chart that showed the length of each season. “Double the length of seasons with half the content. Two seasons have almost taken up a year!”

Ninja is giving a voice to a large portion of the community who are eager for Season 3 to come out. Rumors are swirling about an additional delay to the next season due to the protests in the United States. Epic and Loserfruit just announced a delay to her Icon Series skin for that reason.

We have yet to hear any official news about a Season 3 delay, just yet. Of course, we’ll keep you covered if that changes.
