Ninja and Tfue get huge boost from Twitch thanks to Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 update
OG Fortnite streamers Twitch Ninja and Tfue have seen a resurgence since the release of Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 which has revived interest in the Battle Royale for removing building from the game.
Epic Game’s Fortnite is entering something of a renaissance born of the company’s decision to remove building from the game entirely, at least for a brief period.
On top of that, Chapter 3 Season 2 came out with a host of movement changes and new weapons, but it was the end of the build that had the community raving. While not everyone is in love with Fortnite without building, it has certainly helped bring back players who left the game a long time ago.
Fortnite’s original star streamers Tfue and Ninja have returned to the game and seen their numbers skyrocket.
The great return of Ninja and Tfue on Fortnite
Since the official release of Fornite Chapter 3 Season 2, the pair of streamers have streamed a ton of the game and garnered the views.
According to stats-tracking site sullygnome, Ninja has only been streaming Fortnite since March 20 and boosted its average viewership to over 16,000 for the first time in over a year.
Despite still being the most-followed channel on all of Twitch, Ninja hasn’t had a massive following when streaming games other than Fortnite, but with the game’s resurgence, he’s seen many fans return.
Tfue has also gotten a nice bump since the introduction of no-build mode. The 24-year-old has streamed over 48 hours of Fortnite gameplay since its release and brought his average viewership back to over 11,000, a massive 40% increase from his previous average.
Although he’s become a more Apex Legends-focused streamer over the past year, his return to Fortnite has helped his viewership a lot.
Fortnite is what helped launch both Tfue and Ninja’s Twitch stardom and now their comeback has brought them back to the top of the leaderboards. However, who knows how long this will last.
