Nicholas 'Nick Eh 30' Amyoony has kicked off during his own Fortnite tournament and had a fellow player banned for stream sniping.
Nicholas “Nick Eh 30” Amyoony isn't taking the latest Fortnite scandal lying down and has had a fellow player banned amidst accusations of stream sniping. Amyoony has joined fellow Fortnite faves including Benjy “benjyfishy” Fish and Kyle "Mongraal" Jackson is having the honour of getting his own tournament. The first-ever Nick Eh 30 Cup saw the man himself compete against 99 others who'd qualified for the Grand Final of this solo NA East competition.
Nick Eh 30 rattled his way through the ranks but was ultimately eliminated and landed in 75th place. The eventual winner was the relatively unknown Crumble, and while Nick congratulated them, he was less than impressed by the player who took him out. Some took advantage of Nick's public drop spot and used it to land on him. Among those to drop at the shadow lair were Archie, who had nothing to lose at the bottom of the leaderboard.
What happened with the Nick Eh 30 stream sniping?
Archie proceeded to dance on Nick's body for at least 30 seconds and told his viewers, "No hate to Nick. I want to give him a hug; he’s the nicest bloke. Nick, can you get in call and show me how to loot this place?". Thousands of Nick's fans flooded the chat and were quickly joined by the pro player. A clearly peeved Nick raged, "There’s no way because, like, they’re not even trying. I hope that guy gets banned from all tournaments, and I hope Epic does something".
Justice was swift when ArchieFN returned the lobby and saw they'd been slapped with a ban. It wasn't quite the lifetime ban Nick Eh 30 had championed, but still, a 24-hour slap on the wrist is something. Nick eventually laughed at the whole situation and said, "No way they did that. I don’t know why I let that get to me so much, man".
Did anyone apologise for the Nickw Eh 30 stream sniping?
Not everyone was behind Nick on this one though, competitive player Fray took to social media to call out the whole situation. Fray argued that if someone has sniped a non-pro player, no one would've been bothered. They said that it was only Nick Eh 30's status that caused the drama, leading to plenty of debate about who was in the wrong.
Archie also spoke out and defended his actions by saying he wasn't trying to stream-snipe. He added, "This is a video game. Money involved, but why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself? I’m 20 and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger. If you guys did this to someone who is like 14/15, what if they went and killed themselves? You really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet".
Here's hoping Archie's 15 seconds of fame and lifetime of potential hate for Nick Eh 30 stream sniping via the larger Fortnite community has taught him a lesson
