Renown streamer Ninja didn't qualify for this year's Fornite World Cup

Ninja won't be participating in this year's Fortnite World Cup tournament after being knocked out of both solo and duo brackets. Richard "Ninja" Blevins announced on Twitter he will not be able to play but will be attending in some form. In the duo matches, Ninja was teamed up with Malachi "Reverse2k" Greine, and the pair managed to bag 64 points after a rocky start. Even after attempting to pull it around, they were still shy of what was required to qualify for the finals.

  • Dude, who cares
  • Lol! That's precisely what I said when I read the title of this article. Apparently we do by clicking the damned thing to make comments. 😜
  • And yet life goes on.
    Also, if it adds to anything, I don't really care to see streamer or esport personality news in Windows Central.
  • Fortnite sucks. Battle Royale is ruining gaming.
