Ninja has attracted negative reactions for his behavior

Video streaming platform Twitch found its first superstar in Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins. He soared to unparalleled heights of success with his Fortnite streams, and crazy rage montages. By all means, toxic behavior is not acceptable in online games, as it downplays the gaming experience.

The 29-year-old streamer came under the community’s crosshair, as he unleashed a verbal rant on his teammates. The streamer was playing a ranked match, where things were moving in the right direction during the landing phase. However, few wrong calls and bad decisions in the match caused the tide of the battle to shift.

Tyler called out to his teammates to not play aggressively and to take fights only as a 5 man team. Despite his best efforts and multiple pings, few players went walked into the jungle to kick-start a team fight. This was the final nail in the coffin, as the streamer lost his patience with his teammates, as the poor play resulted in a team wipe.

MOBA games are not easy to master

MOBA games prove to more of a challenge than other genres. These titles revolve around co-coordinated team effort, and no single individual can ever hope to achieve victory. This becomes even more difficult in solo queue situations, where you are teamed up with random players.

Team synergy and understanding how each team member likes to play is just not possible in a signal match. This is where people can easily make poor decisions, which could end up hurting the gaming experience. Safe to say, Ninja was not wrong here; he just made a crucial mistake by reacting in such an abhorrent manner.
