Fortnite Pro Blasts Teammate For Missing FNCS To Put His Dog Down

A man's best friend isn't his colleagues, acquaintances, or school pals, it's the little furry bean that lives by his side with cute little paws and a wagging tail. As part of the family, a dog being put down is one of the hardest things to do, but when you're getting grief from a competitor for choosing to help the woofer instead of play Fortnite, well, it gets a little bit harder.

That's exactly what has happened in the latest round of Fortnite drama, which continues to lack empathy and maturity. 

A Fortnite pro by the name of Jonathan "Calc" Weber has lashed out at one of his trio squad members, "Reducs", after he opted out of the Champion Series heats in order to put down his dog - poor good boy.

The Built By Gamers competitor, Calc, took to Twitter to call out his teammate, who posted an update on his situation. After Reducs explained that his lifelong tail-wagger was being laid to rest, Calc tweeted: "I just don't understand why you have to miss heats for this."

The young player continued to express his confusion on Twitter, saying, "different people mourn in different ways but I just don't see how people could decide to just throw in the towel and pause their life instead of trying to win while also effecting two other peoples careers.

"If my teammate missed heats because his dog died I would probably do a pagan ritual to make sure that he would have seven years of bad luck."

Reducs received a wealth of support on social media, following the outburst, with many high-profile streamers and ex-pros commenting.

Former Fortnite fanatic, Jack "CouRage" Dunlop" said, "I know he is young but he has some of the worst tweets of anyone in any gaming community I've ever seen", whilst Warzone pro player Zack "Zlaner" Lane added "Fortnite kids are a different breed man. Anyone that has owned a pet knows that s**t is family."

Reducs normally competes alongside teammates "Aperta" and "SparkG", who were reportedly a little more sympathetic than Calc, albeit a little upset about having to miss the competition they had qualified for.

Sometimes though, real life situations come first.
