Last weekend, millions of fans witnessed the Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) finals through streaming platforms and the Country Festival of the same game. What they could not see was the team formed by Wrigley, Dictate and Userz, as they were disqualified from this important tournament of Fortnite when one of its members thre atened one of the developers through Twitter.
Following a match on Sunday March 14 that did not end as expected, participant Wrigley posted a message on his now-defunct Twitter account that read: “Like literally fucking k! Ll your $ elf @donaldmustard.” The message mentioned Donald Mustard, one of the creative directors of Fortnite.
In response to this, Epic Games not only disqualified Wrigley from the tournament Fortnitebut your entire team.
This action is consistent with the rules of the community of Fortnite. However, Dictate and Userz allege that they had nothing to do with Wrigley’s tweet. They believe that they were unfairly punished, being left out of a tournament in which they could have won up to three million dollars. In fact, they were assured of making at least $ 600 before suspension.
