Fortnite streamer, Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan, officially announced his exclusive commitment to Twitch on November 10 after years of streaming on the platform. Sypher was one of the original adopters of Fortnite back in the day, and one of the only streamers of that group who still regularly plays the game.
Sypher is best known for his educational commentaries, informative Twitch streams, and – of course – being one of the most innovative players when it came to using Traps in Fortnite. His reputation eventually led to the nickname, “The Trap King.”
“Today, I’m happy to announce that I have officially re-signed to stream exclusively on TwitchTV,” Sypher said in his announcement video. “I’m excited to keep doing amazing things with our community. I’ll see you guys on stream.”
Every journey begins with a single step. We are kicking off this new era streaming exclusively on Twitch! So keep your eyes peeled, there’s so much more in store. pic.twitter.com/ANqN16RKpq
Sypher has been streaming and making videos from a young age. The PK in his name stands for Player Killing from his Runescape days. From there, Sypher made a name for himself playing Elder Scrolls Online. He was one of the bigger creators in the game during the early days, before moving onto games like For Honor and Overwatch.
In late 2017, Sypher decided to make the switch to a new Battle Royale that had just come out: Fortnite. He sacrificed his dedicated viewership and took the hit on the chin – seeing the potential in the new game.
When more streamers began picking up the game, Sypher did what he needed to do to stand out. He began streaming early in the morning to gain a following in other regions. Any early fans of Sypher know how hard he worked to get where he is. He’s a true example of how the grind can pay off.
Now, two years later, Sypher is one of the most recognizable names in all of Fortnite – the biggest game on the planet.
The sky’s the limit for Sypher – both on Twitch and on any of his three YouTube channels. We look forward to seeing what milestones he hits next.
The $10,000 Nick Eh 30 Cup is coming to Fortnite soon. Here’s everything you need to know.
Nick Eh 30 is part of the original crop of Fortnite streamers to hit the scene, and one of the only members of that group who still regularly plays the game. The always-positive Fortnite creator is now hosting a Solo tournament for his fans and followers, offering a prize pool of $10,000.
This will be Nick’s first time hosting a Fortnite tournament, although he’s no stranger to competition. Nick might be a content creator, first and foremost, but he competed in all of the Ninja Battles tournaments and even tried his hand at the FNCS in recent seasons.
Nick announced his upcoming tournament on Twitter on November 9. It will take place on November 22, giving players a chance to win some money before the Thanksgiving holiday.
According to a follow-up tweet, the games will only be played on NA-East, although it’s not region-locked and anyone can compete.
The tournament only has two rounds: Open Qualifiers and Finals. Since it’s his own tournament, Nick will automatically make it into the final round. He’ll join the top 99 players from Open Qualifiers, fighting for their share of the $10,000 prize pool.

The tournament will be placement-heavy, with placement points going up by 1 for each 10 placements until the top 75. After that, each five placements receive a point until they make it to the top 30, where each placement will be a point until the top two. The top two earn two points and the winner gets five. Each elimination is also worth one point.
We haven’t received official word of the prizing, yet, but we have to assume that it will be the same as the upcoming 1% cup. We’ll update this post if there are any changes.
You can register for the tournament here. Make sure that your account is older than 30 days and you have two-factor authentication enabled. Good luck to all of the competitors.
One of the most popular creators in the Fortnite community, SypherPK, is trying to make his mark on the game. No, he’s not petitioning Epic for a skin or any other sort of in-game cosmetics. He’s asking for a small, red book in one of his favorite landing spots on the map.
This movement began when Sypher listened to Epic Games Creative Director, Donald Mustard, talk about the community’s effect on Fortnite. For example, the Fortnite team decided to mess with players by having the meteor narrowly miss Tilted Towers in the first in-game event after fans began to widely assume that Tilted would be destroyed.
Mustard made it clear that the Fortnite community has had small impacts on the development of the game over the course of its three-year lifespan. Sypher decided to try to take advantage of this fact by mobilizing the Fortnite community and getting Epic to add a “How to Win” book at the Weather Station.
“How to Win” was one of Sypher’s original Fortnite series, and it continues to this day – albeit less frequently, now. The Weather Station is Sypher’s preferred landing spot during his educational commentaries and discussion videos.
Sypher and his fanbase aren’t asking for too much, here. All they want is for Epic to add a small, red book with the “How to Win” title somewhere at the POI.
In his video, Sypher asked for tweets, hashtags, and – most importantly – memes. He needs “How to Win” to become a meme like the destruction of Tilted and Kevin the Cube. We know that Fortnite loves to incorporate memes, so “How to Win” needs to join the ranks.
Sypher’s first tweet and video are only an hour old at the time of writing, so it’s far too soon to tell whether or not this petition will be successful. If he pulls it off, however, it will be arguably more impressive than having an in-game skin.
So, how about it? We’ll be doing our part by sharing some funny “How to Win” memes on Twitter. Let’s make this happen!
Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney is up there with Ninja as a true Fortnite legend – a streamer who had a small following before the game came out and exploded once it gained popularity. There was a time when Tfue would regularly garner 100,000 viewers on his Fortnite streams – especially when he was competing.
For a long time, Tfue was considered the best player in the game. His stream grew to the point where he was close to – if not the – most subscribed channel on all of Twitch.
He helped to catapult the careers of several young Fortnite pros, as well, by teaming up with them for competitive events. Some say that he has the best eye for talent in the game – picking up players like Khanada and Scoped before most of the community knew who they were.
After two + years of streaming Fortnite every day, Tfue grew visibly frustrated with the game he once loved. When Warzone came out and popular Fortnite streamers started moving over, Tfue decided to make the switch. The fanbase he had built playing Fortnite was strong enough to follow him to whichever game he chose, and Tfue moved away from Fortnite.
Although Tfue flirted with the idea of returning to Fortnite, he still hasn’t come back in any meaningful way. Recently, he appeared on the Brand Risk Podcast with Arab and Quick to discuss his career. Of course, this included why he left the game that helped him become a household name in the gaming space.
Tfue began by citing the typical reason why streamers leave a game: burnout. “Two years of cranking 90s was just too much,” he explained. “I had to spice it up and play other things. Plus, I felt like I milked the game so much that, like, me playing it was almost digging myself into a pit.”
When asked to expand, Tfue went on to say, “I got to the point where the only reason I was playing it was for viewers and for my career. I just stopped caring about that and felt like I milked Fortnite for all that was worth, considering I was blowing up at the peak of it. Anyone playing Fortnite now knows who I am. If I keep playing it, it’s not like I’m going to gain new followers.”
Interestingly, for someone who called for the death of Fortnite countless times while he was playing it, Tfue said that Fortnite would never fully die as H1Z1 did. “I feel like Fortnite was too big at its peak to ever get to that point,” he explained. “I fee like it will die down, but I don’t think it will ever actually die.”
Tfue has spoken about his departure from Fortnite in the past, but this is the first time he’s given an in-depth explanation with some distance from the game. We may see him return to Fortnite in the future, but probably not for a while. The full hour-long podcast is available on YouTube and Spotify. We suggest that fans of Tfue listen to the whole episode. The trio get into some interesting topics.
