Fortnite ace and popular Twitch streamer Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney was left furious with other pros during a trios tournament, as he called them out for griefing.
The $25K custom Fortnite trios tournament, hosted by YouTube channel Nerdout!, took place on July 20 and featured heavyweights such as Tfue, Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore, and TSM’s Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani.
However, Tfue – one of the biggest names in the Fortnite community and considered one of the best Fortnite Battle Royale players in the world – was knocked out of the tournament, after which he placed some of the blame on the playstyle of his fellow pro players.
Streaming on July 20, Tfue was competing in the trios tournament alongside teammates FaZe Clan’s Josue ‘Sway’ and MSF’s Cody ‘Clix’ Conrod, when they ran into a difficult situation against some opponents who were adamant on taking a fight outside the main zone. Tfue could be seen on stream calling out the other team:
“What the f*** are these guys doing? F***ing idiots,” he said as they blew up his Quadcrasher and began to fight the trio. He could be heard repeating himself once he and FaZe Sway were eliminated, continuing: “They’re just f***ing griefing. Are these kids really just f***ing hiding dude? Bro, what the f*** is this game?”
After being informed by Clix that it was likely a couple of solo players – Team Secret’s ‘Fuzzy’ and Michael ‘Hogman’ Hogman – Tfue continued, explaining to Clix why he had been justified in running away on his own:
“The storm was pushing bro, literally on us, right then. These kids are f***ing challenging fifty fifties. I honestly wouldn’t even be surprised if it was Hogman.”
Despite Clix being alive, Tfue remained angry about their opponents having taken the fight in the first place. The incident dented their chances considerably, and the trio was unable to finish in the rewarding top three positions.
Tfue and other Fortnite stars will now be turning their attention to the upcoming Fortnite World Cup, which is set to take place in New York from July 26 to July 28. On the global stage, Tfue (who recently overtook Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins as the most-watched video game streamer on Twitch) will be looking to dominate his fellow pros and take home the coveted prize of $3 million.
