During yesterday’s Fortnite FNCS Duo Week 4 Final, Tfue and Scoped found themselves at the end of (apparent) stream sniping and griefing from 2 teams. The first team is made up of Liquid Chap & MRKN Av, and Oops & StarvingAiden. During FNCS, Tfue and Scoped landed at The Grotto, also the landing spot of Oops & Aiden. Chap and Av landed at the nearby Dirty Docks, giving them an easy opportunity to contest The Grotto after the opening minutes of the game.
The rivalry for The Grotto stems back to a viewing party that Liquid Chap hosted in which he told Tfue how good of a landing spot The Grotto is. Since then, both teams have favored the spot, leading to a rivalry between them. In February, the relatively unknown team of Oops & Aiden announced on Twitter that they will be landing there. Now, during FNCS, there have been 3 teams all landing in the same spot with each team feeling that they are being “griefed” by the other teams.
During the recent FNCS Week 4 Final, Tfue and Scoped were contested on all 6 matches by Oops and Aiden, who were unfortunate enough to not defeat Tfue and Scoped in any of their encounters, resulting in an end score of 0 points. Being contested angered Tfue and Scoped who complained about it on screen and mocked the players for having TV in their names. TV or TTV is a common addition to a name to promote which platform you stream or create content on. Because they had TV in their names, it was easy for Tfue’s followers to find their stream and start harassing them. The results can be seen in the Reddit video below.
People have been discussing whether Tfue, or any streamer for that matter, should take responsibility for their audience. Tfue was being very toxic on stream towards these players, which could be viewed as encouraging his audience to do the same to the players. Should streamers take responsibility and potentially face punishment from their streaming host, or Epic themselves? There’s no official stance on it, as Tfue didn’t encourage his viewers to harass, but it is possible that his actions passively encouraged his audience. Whether that deserves punishment would be up to Twitch and/or Epic.
