Ninja hits back at Tfue after fight challenge and bold accusations – Dexerto

Published

 on


Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has fired back at Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney after the Fortnite star made some pretty bold accusations during a February 23 YouTube video – including claims that he’d “tried to ruin” his career.

The situation started on February 22 after a hacker infiltrated their way into Ninja’s Twitter account and propositioned the Fortnite star to a fight. “Fight me Tfue,” one tweet read. Another said “#TfuevsNinja, I’d really clap his a**,” alongside a laughing emoji.

While the streamer soon regained access to his account and deleted the messages, Tfue wasn’t done. He uploaded a YouTube video the next day in which he talked more in depth about actually wanting to go ahead with the fight, as well as making some rather bold accusations.

Ninja fires back at Tfue over “publicity stunt”

In the video, the 22-year-old claimed that the beef with Ninja has been going on for a long time, and even alleged that the Mixer star had tried to get his Twitch account permanently banned in the past.

“I think he did get hacked, but regardless of that, this is something that I’ve been meaning to get off my chest for a while now… For years and years, me and Ninja have been rivals… Ever since I started blowing up on social media, he’s been trying to tear me down, he’s been talking s**t behind my back,” he said. “I never mentioned this to anyone before, but he actually did try to get me permanently banned behind my back. He tried to literally ruin my career.”

He then revealed that he’d actually like to accept the hacker’s proposition for a fight – even though it wasn’t Ninja himself who made the tweets. “I know he doesn’t f**king like me, and I know he’s been trying to tear me down forever, I’m giving him the opportunity now to try and tear me down in the ring… I don’t care, UFC, MMA, whatever, the KSI Logan Paul shit went well, so why don’t we do it?” he continued. “I’m not scared, if anything he’s scared. He’s talked all this s**t on me in the past, and now I’m giving him an opportunity to back it up.”

After seeing this, Ninja fired back at the Twitch personality on Twitter, claiming that he doesn’t want to fight him and that he’s unhappy with his account being hacked used as a “publicity stunt.”

“I have no interest in fighting you Tfue. I don’t hate you, I don’t want you to fail, but I also don’t appreciate you using my twitter being hacked as a publicity stunt,” he tweeted. “It was a breach in privacy which nobody deserve to deal with, your making it worse for me and helping him.”

After YouTuber Carlitoes replied to the post claiming that it was just a joke, the Mixer streamer hit back with “That is not the point, all this does is give the hacker even more clout and attention, not to mention smear my name considering I never tweeted those things, and not everyone knows I was hacked.”

The 28-year-old is not happy with Tfue at all.

Tfue has yet to reply to Ninja at the time of this article, but one thing is for certain – the Mixer streamer is not happy with how it’s played out at all.

Dexerto will provide further updates on the situation as it develops.

Fortnite: Chapter 3 officially revealed with new island, Spider-Man, and plenty more changes – The Verge

Published

 on


And then there were three. After a dramatic live event on Saturday, Fortnite is moving on to Chapter 3, which introduces some big changes for the battle royale.

This morning developer Epic detailed season 1 of the new chapter, called “Flipped,” and the most dramatic change is the shift to a fresh, snow-covered island, one that features weather conditions, along with new locations like Sanctuary — which appears to play a large part in Fortnite lore — and the Daily Bugle. Those who pick up the new battle pass will also be able to get their hands on characters like Spider-Man and (eventually) The Foundation, voiced by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. You can get the full run-down of the battle pass right here:

(It’s been a busy weekend for spider-news, with a trailer for the sequel to Into the Spider-Verse also dropping.)

It also appears that the core gameplay will be shaken up quite a bit. Chapter 3 features two new mechanics — sliding and swinging — that could make the experience even faster and more vertical, particularly for high-level players. And for those who spend time in the game’s creative mode, there’s now an option to earn battle pass XP in player-made experiences.

Outside of that, developer Epic is introducing some persistent elements to the game. Here’s how the studio explains:

This new chapter brings camps, where players and their squad can heal and store items from match to match — bringing new persistent, social gameplay options to Fortnite. Plus, there are new weapons and items to help win a victory royale and earn the all-new, ultimate prestige — the Victory Crown. Keep winning to keep the crown.

Many of these details leaked out earlier on Saturday, ahead of an intense live event that saw the previous island literally flip over. Since then the game has been down as players stare at their characters adrift in a vast ocean. You can check out our full recap of the event right here, or watch it all in the video below:

Fortnite’s second chapter launched in 2019 following a surprise black hole event, and similarly led to an all-new island. It spanned eight seasons that included everything from an alien invasion to an Ariana Grande concert to a Marvel superhero takeover.

While we have the details for Chapter 3, the update isn’t live just yet, and it’s not clear when players will finally be able to jump in.

Apple AirTags implicated in multiple car thefts – MSPoweruser – MSPoweruser

Published

 on


Apple makes it clear that the Apple AirTags are not anti-theft tracking devices, but it seems the small trackers are pretty good at assisting car thieves, according to Canadian police.

A news release by the York Regional Police has warned the public that thieves are using AirTags to find the home address of high-value vehicles so they can be stolen from their driveways.

They have investigated 5 such incidents since September 2021 but suspect there are many more further afield.

Thieves reportedly spot target vehicles in parking lots and other public locations and then tag them with AirTags in inconspicuous locations such as the tow hitch or fuel cap.

Despite Apple’s efforts to notify people that they are being tracked by others, the strategy does not always work. The owner of the vehicle may not have an iPhone, may not receive the notification (which does not happen immediately) or may ignore the message.

The police have urged members of the public not to ignore such warnings and to inspect the vehicle for hidden AirTags if they do receive them, and ideally park their cars in a secure location.

See their warning video below:

The Fortnite island flipped over during Chapter 2's final event – nation.lk – The Nation Newspaper

Published

 on


Fortnite’s big chapter-ending event just ended, and it was a big one. After an all-out war against UFOs, zombies, and the Cube Queen, players were saved in a rescue mission led by Dwayne Johnson. (Well, his in-game character.) Then, the island flipped over.

The event

Let’s back up a bit. The game’s latest season has been all about the cubes, and right when the event loaded up, a mysterious giant blue cube spawned on the map next to all of the players in my lobby. Jumping at the cube bounced players away, but it otherwise, didn’t do anything beyond loom ominously. We also could look at the Cube Queen in the distance, which has been floating in an energy ball over the center of the island for part of the season.

When the even’t countdown clock reached 10 minutes, the Cube Queen’s evil laugh echoed over the island and zombies started spawning in front of our base. Fortunately, weapons were added to everyone’s inventory, so players worked to fend off the incoming zombie troopers (though the zombies didn’t seem to pose any real threat).







Stay back!

When the clock reached zero, an alarm blared over the island, and the Cube Queen’s pyramid shone bright. She launched a beam into the sky that opened up a huge portal revealing a horde of giant UFOs. During the game’s seventh season, the island was under the shadow of just one UFO; the Cube Queen had brought an army.

UFOs and zombies approached the blue cube as players tried to fend them off. But the battle began to look unwinnable, and things went from bad to worse when a UFO blew up the blue cube.







Yikes.

After that, the event took an interesting twist, moving the perspective under the surface of the island to a CGI cutscene. (It was kind of like if Netflix made a Fortnite TV show.) The game’s main character, Agent Jones, was strapped to a laboratory chair with a device on his head, and Doctor Slone, who betrayed players at the end of last season, was seemingly about to end Jones’ life. Then, a hulking figure known as The Foundation burst in to save the day — and he took off his mask to reveal that he’s played by, as suspected, none other than Dwayne Johnson.

As Jones and The Foundation tried to get to safety, two other characters dressed similarly to The Foundation rescued players on the surface and brought them down to the inner island. Players were then given control to follow someone called The Scientist to get to Jones and The Foundation. But during the escape, the island began to tip over bit by bit.

Eventually, players made it to Jones and The Foundation at the Zero Point (essentially a big ball of energy that has been a key plot point in Fortnite). The Scientist assured everyone that we were safe, but then one of the giant zombies smashed a window, causing water to rush in and for all of us to be forced out.

Soon, my character surfaced and watched as the island slowly tipped up to be completely vertical and then fall the other way. That crushed the Cube Queen, which caused the giant portal with the UFOs to close up. Then the island flipped all the way over revealing a whole new landscape. At a distance, you could see a little bit of the new areas to explore, but a tidal wave quickly swept my player out to sea.

When will Fortnite be back?







Just me and the open water.

Now, Fortnite just shows my player at sea on an empty log. I can’t move, and there’s hardly anything on screen except for me, my log, and the vast open ocean. It’s all reminiscent of the black hole that bridged the transition between Chapters 1 and 2.

There’s no timer or any sort of indication of when Chapter 3 might be playable. But if you want a sneak peek of what’s to come, a leaked trailer looks to have spoiled a lot of what you can expect.

This chapter, which kicked off in October 2019 after a multi-day downtime featuring the black hole, pushed Fortnite’s growing narrative ambitions with events featuring first-person storytelling, an arcade shooter against a Marvel villain, a thrilling single-player event to try and stabilize reality, and even a mission inside an alien mothership full of cubes. Chapter 2’s concluding event took things another step forward, and now we’ll have to wait and see what Epic has in store for Chapter 3.
