Top streamers Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney have locked horns over the current state of Fortnite Battle Royale, following the latter’s return to streaming.
Tfue took a lengthy break from both Twitch and YouTube in September, following lots of criticism towards Fortnite throughout Season 10, particularly because of the BRUTE mechs.
After his return to streaming, Tfue hadn’t exactly changed his mind, and on October 3 he tweeted that the game ‘f**king sucks now’.
Fortnite kinda fucking sucks now tf happened?— Tfue (@TTfue) October 4, 2019
Ninja fired back, saying that he personally had been enjoying the game, and if Tfue wasn’t he simply shouldn’t play it, rather than continue to criticize it publicly.
I actually have been enjoying the game recently after the Gotham City update. If you don’t enjoy the game, stop playing and roasting it all the time.— Ninja (@Ninja) October 4, 2019
Competitive Fortnite player Abdullah ‘parpy’ Khudeish responded to Ninja, suggesting that his tweet sounded as though he had been paid to say it.
However, Ninja fired back once more, arguing that people who constantly stream and post videos about the game, despite constantly complaining about it, were doing more to promote it than him.
Coming from the dude tweeting about how shit the game is yet plays it and uploads Fortnite videos everyday? What’s more of an #ad? Shitty insult— Ninja (@Ninja) October 4, 2019
Clearly, Ninja is tired of fellow streamers and YouTubers, who make the majority of their content focused around Fortnite, and yet constantly bash the game at any chance they get.
With Season 11 around the corner, fans will be hoping that the community begins to feel more positively about the game again.
