SypherPK is one of the few creators who has actively continued to play and promote Epic Games’ battle royale. The popular Twitch streamer also has a calm persona and hardly engages in conflicts with anyone, which only adds to the attraction.

To everyone’s surprise, SypherPK received plenty of negative comments during one of his live streams recently. While some talked about his skills in Fortnite, others mocked him for not placing well enough in the FNCS.

Upon closer inspection, SypherPK figured out that certain viewers in Lachlan’s live chat were wrongly accusing him of saying that Fresh has lost his sweatiness. Lachlan read the chat and proceeded to ask Fresh for his opinion on the same, without confirming exactly what Sypher had said. In response, Fresh mentioned he stood 5th in the FNCS, and is a much better player than SypherPK.

“I mean, placing in Oceania, how many people play Fortnite in Oceania? like 200? But I never said he wasn’t sweaty. I think Lachlan is trying to stir the pot,” replied SypherPK.

SypherPK soon admitted he has nothing against Fresh, but was certainly disappointed with Lachlan, who irresponsibly sparked the controversy.

To prove his worth as a Fortnite player, the veteran posted some of his sweatiest gameplay in a recent video:
