One of the biggest streamers in the world, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, is well known for his short temper while playing and competing. His fans around the world are used to witnessing him rage quitting games. One such incident took place back in August 2020 when Ninja raged on his Valorant teammate, T1 Sonii. Surprisingly, the latter soon quit the team owing to Ninja’s admission that he was unable to play in Sonii’s presence.

It has been months since Sonii left T1, but it seems like the beef is far from over. The former T1 player recently made a ‘streamer fight list’ where he put Ninja and T1 on the ‘would destroy’ category.

Sonii uploaded the list on Twitter and also included others like Dr Disrespect and Nickmercs in it:

Nickmercs responds to Sonii calling Ninja out

True to his nature, Nickmercs had a hilarious response to Sonii’s post. He is definitely aware of the feud and claimed that this streamer fight list would spark another controversy in no time.

Instead of simply agreeing with Nickmercs, Sonii called the FaZe Clan’s content creator out for a fight too. Apparently, the tier list website did not have Nickmercs’ image, and Sonii did not know how to photoshop his face on it. He would have put Nickmercs on the ’50-50′ category alongside Dr Disrespect.

It comes as no surprise that Nickmercs took it sportingly and paid his respects.

Unlike Nickmercs, Dr Disrespect and Ninja are yet to respond to Sonii’s call out. Considering Ninja’s history with Sonii, and Dr Disrespect’s habit of frequently calling people out himself, their silence on the matter is rather surprising. However, fans of Dr Disrespect wasted no time in defending the two-time.

While an actual fight between the aforementioned entities is a rare possibility, it will be a delight to watch them settle it out on the gaming field. Ninja and Sonii have already played Valorant together, and a face-off between them will certainly be more action-packed than ever.

On the flip side, Dr Disrespect and Nickmercs will love to test Sonii on Verdansk while playing Call of Duty Warzone.
