Twitch’s annual Esports event Twitch Rivals has been an astounding success over the years. The biggest streamers on Twitch annually compete against each other in popular games like Fortnite, League of Legends, and PUBG. Naturally, fan expectations from the event are always sky high, and Twitch Rivals 2020 was no exception.
Popular streamer Ninja was able to avoid any such legal troubles, but from the looks of it, he still had a tough time facing some of the biggest Fortnite YouTubers in Twitch Rivals.
Ninja teamed up with fellow Twitch streamers, Reverse2k and Morgausse. The trio faced OT Orange, Mostache, and DuckyTheGamer in their first match, and it was more intense than Ninja expected. Within a few minutes, Ninja exclaimed, “These guys are literally not missing, and it is insane.”
Up next, Ninja faced the star-studded trio of C9 Vivid, OA Whofishy, and C9Chap. Despite putting up a tough competition, the veteran tasted defeat yet again.
“We’re getting such good..We’re getting.. ,like the people we’re in finals, in round one every time bro.”
Ninja’s first victory came against an anonymous team. To say the least, Ninja was happy to finally bag a win, “I’m so proud of you guys man, god job boys we needed that.”
Last, but not least, Ninja competed against coL Punisher, BonsaiBrozBTW, and another fan-favorite Nick Eh 30. As expected, the match was nail-biting, but Nick Eh 30’s trio took the victory.
Back in the day, Ninja was one of the best Fortnite players in the world. He is still good at the game, but a long break has certainly affected his performance. Last month, Ninja officially returned to Fortnite and played the game with SypherPK. Since then, several other veterans have returned to Fortnite, including Nickmercs, TimTheTatman, and Cloakzy, among others.
Even when streamers like Ninja and Tfue return to Fortnite for a single event, it hits the fans with several memories. Hence, if all the veterans return to the game altogether, it will be a delight to watch.
