Ninja shares his thoughts on Fortnite competitive
Speaking about the present state of Fortnite competitive, Ninja proceeded to share his thoughts, with reference to the warmups for the upcoming FNCS:
"I've come to the conclusion that, without a dedicated league of respected teams and respected players who obviously know how to play at a high level and don't grief and land on each other or push random, dumb kills that won't do anything and actually just ruin the game for themselves and the team that they're griefing, I don't think there will ever be full success and legitimacy of Fortnite competitive."
He then spoke about the Cash Cups vis a vis the FNCS:
"I think the cups are gonna be the cups, that's always gonna be griefworthy, randoms are gonna get in and just stream snipe... I think that's inevitable and just the nature of the Cash Cups."
"In terms of FNCS, this next-level Fortnite competitive players who are already established, there needs to be leagues and lobbies where they can cue up, you know with teams and against teams that are obviously just as good, who have qualified if you will and are there consistently... I think that's how it should be, if it's ever to be super looked up to or respected."
Ninja went on to round up his statements with the following tweets:
