Ninja backs SypherPK’s video listing problems with Fortnite: “It really hits hard”

Ninja has given his verdict on SypherPK’s video assessing the state of Fortnite, calling for Epic Games to provide better communication with its players.

Tyler “Ninja” Blevins has thrown his support behind a video listing numerous issues with Fortnite, explaining how he wants to see the game “thrive” once more. 

The Fortnite streamer reposted a YouTube video from fellow streamer Ali “SypherPK” Hassan titled “We need to talk about Fortnite..”, which outlines his personal issues with the title after #RIPFortnite began trending on Twitter. 

Posting the video on his own Twitter, Ninja supported his views, writing: “Wow @SypherPK’s most recent video really hits hard. I love Fortnite so much and really wanna see the game thrive again and be goofy and fun in regular matches.”

In his own video, Ninja explained how he believes “Solos, Duos and Squads have gotten very serious” as well as calling for more players in games and more skilful weapons to address concerns with competitive Fortnite.

“I think everyone as a whole would like to see more competitive and actual skilful outplaying,” Ninja said. “At least I know I’d like that. 

“This game has been my entire life the last two and a half years. It’s been a lot of your guys lives for the past two and a half years. I would just like to see some more communication out of Epic as well so we’ll see.”

In SypherPK’s original video, the streamer claims Fortnite has become “bad” for both competitive players and content creators - citing mechanics like aim assist and less in-game events making it “too stiff and serious”. 

Fortnite is also facing increasing competition in the shooter space, with many streamers gravitating towards Call of Duty: Warzone and Valorant in recent months. 

Many competitive Fortnite players are also retiring from the title, with Fortnite World Cup runner-up Harrison “Psalm” Chang recently announcing his switch to Valorant.

While Fortnite is still hugely popular on Twitch, this disenchantment from top streamers could lead to issues if left unaddressed - especially as more competitors start to emerge in the space.
