For many months now there has been speculation of whether the competitive Fornite scene is crumbling, as many high profile names have quit the esport to pursue careers in other games or to focus on content creation entirely. 

Well, one of those players that are heading for the exit door could be none other than Turner "Tfue" Tenney, one of the most recognisable faces in the Fortnite scene.

Rumours have been circulating regarding the ex-FaZe Clan member since he made the switch to Warzone on his streams, teaming with the likes of Mason "symfuhny" Lanier. Despite not pulling in the same viewership numbers as his Fortnite videos, Tfue had experimented in Warzone and people began speculating that his future lay in content creation across multiple games. 

Well, his competitive Fortnite teammate has added fuel to the fire, as he announced on Twitter that he was looking for a team (LFT), preferably on keyboard and mouse.

Tfue had teamed up with Tyler "scoped" Appleby in March this year, first competing together in the FNCS Warmup Semifinals, before working their way to a third-place finish at the 'Fortnite Champion Series: Chapter 2: Season 2 Week 3 - NA-East' just a month later'. Since then, the pair have had mixed success, and scoped looks to have either moved on from Tfue or been left without a partner.

Tfue has yet to make any comments on where his future lies, however, it is well-known that he has become frustrated with the game. Often turning to Twitter to convey his feelings about the game's state, he's vented frustration at features such as the sharks and spoken out about the immaturity of the competitive scene.

Over on Warzone, Tfue has been competing in Twitch Rivals series with the likes of Vikram "Vikkstar123" Singh Barn, pulling in regular prize money and viewers alike.

What this means for Tfue's future is unclear, but scoped's future certainly hints at Tfue moving on from Fortnite.
