Tfue calls for Luminosity to drop this Fortnite Pro

Tensions ran hot during week four of the Fortnite Champion Series. Tfue’s squad was at each others’ throats and the streamer called for LG to drop one of their players for ‘griefing.’



Tensions ran hot during week four of the Fortnite Champion Series. Tfue’s squad was at each others’ throats and the streamer called for LG to drop one of their players for ‘griefing.’

The Fortnite Champion Series is far from perfect, but it’s the best Fortnite competition that we have right now. There are bugs, inconsistencies, lag, and general frustration running amuck in the professional scene.

Tfue and his team of Cloakzy, Khanada, and Fiber were running hot over the weekend after being steadily contested at Steamy Stacks in the FNCS. At one point, Fiber unwisely pushed the contesting team after Khanada went down, leading to everyone ganging up on the Liquid pro.

Tension spilled over to Twitter after the competition ended. Fiber Tweeted, “Khanada has to be the most immature kid I have ever played with. jfc.” He responded to BenjyFishy, explaining that he (Fiber) “threw the last game. Took blame. This kid still constantly bickering and saying ‘omg guy is so bad.'”

The tweets have since been deleted and the two Fortnite pros appear to have settled their differences off-stream.

This was all to explain the climate in which the team was operating. Things were tense and toxic. The squad was getting contested at Steamy Stacks and weren’t always coming out on top.

All four felt as though they were being ‘griefed’ by the team landing with them. Since Tfue and Cloak have two of the biggest viewer bases in Fortnite, they began to accuse the other squad of ‘clout farming.’

This is where Tfue called for everyone in his chat to “hit up Steve from LG and tell him to drop him.”

Tfue was specifically talking about Neferux in this clip. Serendipitously, Neferux competed with Fiber during the World Cup Duos competition.

Neferux and his squad didn’t take these accusations lying down, however. One of the LG player’s teammates, BlastaMastaa, posted to the r/FortniteCompetitive subreddit about the ordeal.

It’s easy to see both sides of this argument. I can understand why Tfue and the gang were aggravated that their landing spot was contested nearly every match. I can also understand why another team may want to contest them on purpose to see if they have what it takes before the final stage of the competition – clout aside.

If Neferux and his squad aren’t invited to pro scrims, then there’s only one way to see if they can regularly beat Tfue, Cloakzy, Khanada, and Fiber.

Tfue probably went too far when he called for LG to drop Neferux, but we’re all gamers here. Things get toxic – that’s just how it goes, sometimes.

Why do fans think Fortnite X Thor is the next crossover?

The Avengers continue to invade Fortnite.



Recently, rumors have been swirling that Thor will be coming to Fortnite as the next in-game crossover. No, we’re not talking about Relaxed Fit Jonesy, who bears a striking similarity to both Jeff “The Dude” Lebowski and Thor from Avengers: Endgame. We’re talking about the real deal.

Recent rumors of a Thor crossover began on July 4, when Epic released their trailer for Captain America. When Cap landed, there was a noticeable marking on the ground, behind him. This rune looked an awful lot like the mark that The Bifröst leaves behind when Thor enters a scene.

This is only a small detail from a Fortnite trailer – and doesn’t mean very much in isolation. More recently, however, we saw a few more leaks that point to Thor’s potential inclusion in Fortnite.

The first leak relates to The Bifröst and the markings you see, above. A new “HighTower” event has been found in the game files, which is meant to kick off with a growing rift in the sky and strange markings around the map. Like the Captain America trailer, these markings look a lot like something that The Bifröst would create.

This could be a coincidence – something that has more to do with the Fortnite story than a hint to a Thor crossover. It’s not the only clue that we have, however.

In v13.40, data miners also found mention of readable comic books coming to Fortnite. Hypex was able to match some of the blurry in-game images to a real-life Marvel comic. The subject of that comic? You guessed it: Thor.

When you combine all of this news with the recent announcement of the promotional deal with the Avengers video game, it seems all but certain that Thor will be coming to Fortnite.

This is everything we have, for now. It might not be concrete evidence, but these are some strong hints. Will Thor be the catalyst to usher-in Season 4? We don’t know, just yet, but it’s safe to assume that he’ll be the Season 4 “secret” skin, at the very least.

Marvel fans will be happy to see Thor come to Fortnite – he was one of the core Avengers who was missing during the original Marvel crossovers. Classic Fortnite fans may be a bit disappointed, but additions like this one show how much Fortnite has grown. This is a shared universe where all of our favorite characters can come to play. We’re excited to see where Epic take this.

Limited Time Modes

Fortnite leaks point to the return of Getaway LTM & more

Fan-favorite Fortnite LTMs from Chapter 1 are rolling back in!



The Fortnite LTM rotation was the subject of some harsh criticism for the first two seasons of Chapter 2. LTMs were virtually nonexistent for months. Epic tried something new with the Spy Games modes in Season 2, but fans never took to them as they did to some of the older game modes.

When Epic announced the Summer Smash event, however, they told players that LTMs would be returning. Most of these modes were smash-hits – particularly, the Unvaulted LTM, which reminded players how fun these silly items and weapons are to use.

There are still some unique LTMs missing from the lineup. Fan-favorites like ‘Floor is Lava’ and ‘Getaway’ were never added to Fortnite Chapter 2. Well, that may change in the near future.

Fortnite data miner, VastBlast, found threads of several LTMs that received hotfixes in the live Fortnite client. These LTMs include a couple of new modes like ‘Rags to Riches’ and ‘Tank Battle’ along with one of the most beloved Fortnite LTM in existence: ‘The Getaway.’

We don’t know when any of these LTMs are coming to Fortnite – if at all. At the same time, any change to these modes signifies that they’re probably returning soon. We could be seeing The Getaway come back to Fortnite for the first time since Chapter 1 Season 8.

Fans were delighted to hear that ‘The Getaway’ could be coming back. It’s one of the only unique Fortnite modes that doesn’t seem isolated to Chapter 1. We may never see games like ‘Air Royale’ or ‘Floor is Lava’ again, but there doesn’t seem to be any reason that Epic can’t release ‘The Getaway.’

We’ll keep you posted when we learn more about the release date of this long-awaited LTM. Follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL so you don’t miss out on any Fortnite news.

Longtime Fortnite pro Saf signs with TSM

TSM announces their newest signing: Fortnite pro, Rocco ‘Saf’ Morales.



The Fortnite signings don’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon. The past month has seen some of the biggest names in Fortnite scooped-up left and right. Luminosity had a massive signing day, Clix and Ronaldo signed to NRG, and Bucke, Clalc, and HazThaGreat signed with BBG.

Today, August 10, TSM announced the newest member of their team: former Ghost member, Rocco ‘Saf’ Morales. The organization and Saf, himself, announced the signing with a Tweet and a video.

Saf joins ZexRow. Commandment, Reverse2k, and Mackwood on the competitive Fortnite TSM roster. TSM doesn’t have the largest roster in the game, but they have a collective of players who are always in the hunt to win any given tournament.

Unlike a lot of other pro players in the Fortnite community, Saf has been near the top for a long time. He and Zayt are one of – if not the – only duos left from the World Cup days, and both of them had been in the scene before that.

The continuous signings of Fortnite pros from tier-one organizations show that Fortnite – and the competitive scene – is alive and well. These organizations and players are in it for the long-haul. Fortnite isn’t going anywhere. Congrats to Safaroonie.
