Tfue and Nickmercs disagree on Fortnite being fun

Along with Nickmercs, TimTheTatman and Cloakzy also returned to Fortnite in the past weeks. Naturally, fans expect these veterans to continue playing the game now and bring it back to its former glory. However, a recent podcast where several Twitch streamers discussed the matter tells a different story.

Based on the podcast, YouTuber The Fortnite Guy covered some major disagreements between Nickmercs and Tfue in a recent video:

Nickmercs believes that his break from Fortnite helped him in retrieving his interest in the game, and his recent streams also approve this. Interestingly, Nick even admitted that he is thinking of hiring a coach to get better.

The reason behind his enthusiasm is his love for competitive Fortnite, and the countless memories he has of it. Tfue, on the flip side, disagreed with Nickmercs.

Even though Tfue accepted competitive Fortnite is fun to watch, he still said he wouldn’t play the game, “Watching competitive Fortnite is way more fun than playing it, that’s a fact.”

True to his nature, Nickmercs quickly followed up saying, “You can say whatever you want bro but I sat next to you in TwitchCon, and I have never seen you happier in my entire life.”
