Fortnite: why are the pros making it competitive? Ninja and SypherPK explain.
The days go by and when you open social networks you are faced with a professional giving up the scenario. Players Ninja and SypherPK discussed what is happening to people getting away with Fortnite. Tyler “Ninja” Blevins and Ali “SypherPK” Hassan are more focused on content production than the competitive landscape. So, it was very interesting to hear what they had to say about the growing number of professionals who gave up competing.
In the last few days, the bombshell has come from Harrison “Psalm” Chang’s withdrawal from the competition. Since winning 2nd place in the solo World Cup finals, he has been in decline. The player revealed that he has plans to dedicate himself to the new Riot Games game, Valorant.
Psalm at 24 is one of the biggest boomers in the game. Known as META Master, a strategic knowledge and a lot of notion of game has made him evolve since he was 13 years old. All of this made him take 2nd place in the solo finals of the World Cup and breaking $ 1,800,000. Practically 1 year after that big moment, Salmo is entering another life-changing event. Then announcing his departure from Fortnite to pursue new competitive experiences.
Salmo revealed that his dream is to be one of the most decorated contestants in the history of electronic games. He can be considered one of the most successful players in the history of Esports, with a plethora of titles.
In the last decade, Psalm achieved the following:
- Top 20 Heroes of Newerth ladder;
- Diamond Starcraft II S1 (highest at the time);
- DotA 2 semi-pro (this one I regret quitting);
- CS:GO Global Elite;
- Top 70 Overwatch S1 ladder;
- Best HotS pro in NA;
- 2nd at FN World Cup;
- Hit D3 in LoL in 2 months (brand new).
Ninja and SypherPK commented on Salmo’s withdrawal, his possible move to Valorant, Sypher said “He is obviously very talented, but he was always the guy who used his brain, not necessarily the most sophisticated mechanics, but at the end of the day, Valorant will demand an insane amount. Aiming ability. ”
Sypher did not mean that Salmo would not have the necessary mechanical skill, but he explains that adaptation in Valorant will not be easy. This change will be very impactful for the player. He still hints that in the case of Psalm, due to his experience in competing in several games, he could easily be a very successful player in Counter Strike Global Offensive for example. This bodes well for your future in Valorant, as the game has a mix of CS:GO and Overwatch.
Following the conversation, Ninja reveals: “If you’re doing well at Fortnite right now and you’re enjoying it, there’s no reason to change.” He adds, “Even if you’re doing well, you can get tired of Fortnite’s competitiveness”.
As for the reasoning of Fortnite professionals who leave the competitive landscape, they mention some issues that influence their choice. Since the failures that kill them for no reason, players who go without playing can affect the player. They also mentioned the other problems associated with these open online events, such as the team building and flow sniping scandals that have been making headlines recently.
What is expected?
The pair agreed that Valorant will be policed much better than Fornite, speaking of the competitive scene. For them, it is much easier in a 5×5 game than a Battle Royale game. For professional Fortnite players, small changes are ignored by the developers. It is these changes that make a huge difference in the game, and that in most cases, cause players to lose interest in competing.
This article ends with a criticism of EPIC. If Fortnite cannot work with the main concepts of competitive integrity or, at least, fix it in the summer, VALORANT could be the real “Fortnite killer”.
Fortnite: who are the best players in the world?
With a competitive landscape still in its infancy, Fortnite didn’t need many championships to reveal great professional players. It’s been almost three years since the game’s release, and giant names like Tyler “Ninja”, Turner “TFue” and Kyle “Bugha” have gained prominence in Epic Games’ battle royale. Many other pro players and streamers are also part of the hall of the best players in one of the most played games today.
Great Fortnite players also benefit from Epic Games’ strategy to foster competition through big payouts. The first Fortnite World Cup alone distributed US$ 30 million, being the second largest prize in the history of eSports. And, with an outstanding talent, the best players gain even more prominence in the community due to achievements that are often unrelated to competitions.
Check out the top seven Fortnite players in the world:
Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf
Winner of the first Fortnite World Cup, Bugha emerged into the world after collecting the $ 3 million prize last year. Despite not being able to remain at the top of the tournaments since then, the player has all the potential to be able to shine again in the competitive scenario. Before the World Cup, for example, he had already won Friday Fortnite 2019: Week 6 and the Fortnite World Cup Online Open: Week 1.
Tyler “Ninja” Blevins
It is impossible to name a list of Fortntite players without mentioning Ninja. Tyler Blevins has become, not only for the Epic Games battle royale, but for the whole world, one of the main references in the gaming world. Despite not having brilliant performances in the competitive scene, Ninja did not need to win a major title to be recognized by the scene.
Currently dedicating himself full time to streams, he was the first popular figure to receive a skin within the game. Such importance of Ninja for the battle royale of Epic Games, the developer paid tribute and immortalized the player forever.
Turner “Tfue” Tenney
Unlike Ninja, Tfue knew how to divide attention between the competitive landscape of Fortnite and the life of a streamer. Still competing, Turner has the most recent appearance with a second place in the Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS). However, he has several other career achievements within the battle royale.
The most recent was last year, when Tfue won the Fortnite World Cup Online Open: Week 3 – North America East. Prior to that, in 2018, he ranked first in Fortnite Fall Skirmish: Week 6 – TwitchCon Finals: Heat 1 and in weeks 2, 4 and 6 of Fortnite Fall Skirmish.
Trevor “Funk” Siegler
A FaZe Clan player, Funk has a long and successful career in Fortnite. At just 24 years old, he has already managed to prove his performance in the competitive battle royale scene. Despite finishing in 99th place at the Epic Games World Cup, the other five first places he won over the years 2018 and 2019 show that he can go even further.
The first prize came at the Red Bull Rise Till Dawn, when he was still defending SoaR Gaming. Still in 2018 and playing for the same organization, he secured Fortnite Summer Skirmish: Week 6. The good performances yielded the hiring for FaZe, where Funk moved last year. There, he secured weeks 5, 7 and 8 of Friday Fortnite 2019.
Nate “Nate Hill” Hill
Also defending the FaZe Clan, Nate Hill first appeared on eSport in late 2018. At the time, without wearing the shirt of any organization, he secured first place in Fortnite Summer Skirmish: Week 6 and good positions in the following weeks, as the second and fourth place. The latter, already representing FaZe.
Despite signing two years ago, the player’s first placements for the team happened almost 12 months later. However, it ended up winning in double dose. That’s because Nate Hill was able to secure two consecutive weeks of Friday Fortnite 2019, writing the name once and for all among the greats of battle royale.
Ali “Myth” Kabbani
Representing TeamSolo Mid, Myth is one of the greatest Fortnite legends. Just like Ninja is far from having a successful competitive career. However, everything the player and streamer did on the platform was marked for battle royale players. One of the pioneers to enter the game with an organization, Ali Kabbani has as one of the main achievements only a Friday Fortnite.
Dennis “Cloakzy” Lepore
A former FaZe Clan player, cloakzy currently appears in Fortnite only as a streamer. However, he managed to prove, at the time that he defended the organization, quality as a competitive player. With most eSport appearances in 2018, Dennis showed that he had a lot of future ahead in the competitive battle royale scene if he kept up the intense pace.
Of the few tournaments he participated in, he managed to secure two first place and always competed for the top of the competitions. However, from the middle of last year, the player had an intense fight with the FaZe Clan after contractual differences.
