More often than not the data-miner has stuck to what he is good at, which is spoiling Epic’s surprise. However, Hypex recently took to Twitter to express his frustration regarding the “toxic” behavior in Fortnite’s competitive scene.

Although this may not be as accurate as the other data provided on his Twitter, he does have a point.

While toxic behavior like performing the ‘take the L’ emote and pickaxing or teabagging an opponent’s body is expected from the younger players, Fortnite professionals have the responsibility of setting an example for the younger generations to follow.

There have been many instances where even the Fortnite pros have resorted to toxic behavior. A recent example is that of NRG Clix. Donald Mustard had posted a picture of him at the NFL Superbowl 2021 after the cancellation of an FNCS tournament. Incensed by this, Clix took the opportunity to call Donald a “bald f***.”

Clix is one of the most famous and decorated Fortnite professionals. Many children watch his content and aspire to be as skillful as him in the game. Therefore, such comments will only tarnish his image.

How pros can make a change

Hypex went ahead and added to his statement, saying the following.

Previously, creators like Nickmercs and SypherPK have pointed out problems with Fortnite such as the lack of mobility and overpowered weapons. However, they have taken a more considerate and kind approach. If creators want Epic to hear them out, they will have to do so respectfully.
