After the end of Ninja Battles 6, an online Fortnite tournament conducted and hosted by Ninja, fans and players alike were pleased by the overall flow and outcome of the event.

It was the last Ninja Battle tournament that was on the charts, and as of now, everyone is unsure if we will have another edition anytime soon.

After the tournament, where he played alongside Ronaldo and Paper, Ninja was quick to share his experiences on Twitter.

Ninja, playing with Ronaldo and Paper for the first time in a trio, finished 27th. Although disappointing, this should be considered a decent finish, since these three had never before played together.

Fortnite Ninja Battles: What upset Ninja?

Apart from the success of the tournament, this was also the first iteration with 100 players, instead of the usual 60.

The unexpected rise in the number of players had a direct impact on Fortnite, as the lobby started to lag, and this made Ninja upset. After the match, the Fortnite 'Icon' took to Twitter to apologise for the lag and issues faced by participating teams.

His fans backed him on Twitter, coming up with their own explanations:

Having said this, it remains a mystery if Ninja Battles will be back for another round soon. If so, how many players would be allowed to participate?

However, with Ninja's recent return to Fortnite, it looks extremely likely that there will be other Fortnite events like "Ninja Battles ft Fortnite".

This tournament has been one of the most entertaining invitational tournaments of Fortnite so far. The least we can do is hope for other organizations to come up with contests like this, especially for the community.

Interestingly, after the wrap up of Ninja Battles, according to Esports Talk, Twitch is highly-interested in signing upcoming as well as big-name Fortnite streamers for the platform.

Keeping aside Ninja's return, Twitch recently signed big-name Fortnite streamers like ClixBugha, and Ewok, as well as Benjyfishy.

From where things stand, despite Fortnite's viewership falling on Twitch, the platform is still striving to grow the category with multiple popular streamers.
