NICKMERCS responds to Ghost Bizzle claiming that online Fortnite isn’t “competitive”

Ghost Gaming’s Timothy ‘Bizzle’ Miller is far from pleased with the latest Fortnite tournament, but Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff believes he has no reason to be angry.

Bizzle is currently the highest earning player in Fortnite history thanks to his excellent performances in the Skirmish tournaments as well as LAN events – most recently finishing 4th at ESL Katowice back at the start of March.

The latest Fortnite tournament, the Blackheart Cup, is available to all players who qualified through the recent pop-up events with $100,000 on offer in prize money. However, Bizzle believes Epic Games are wasting their cash, slamming the tournament as ‘a joke’ and suggests it ‘is not competitive at all’.

Fellow professional Fortnite player, NICKMERCS, wasn’t interested in his complaints and believes that Epic needed to be cut some slack for allowing anyone the chance to compete at the highest level.

Nick explained that Bizzle needs to consider the bigger picture with $100m being designated to competitive Fortnite in 2019.

He stated that the tournaments allowed new players the chance to earn some money while offering pro players some online practice – questioning what exactly Bizzle was moaning about.

The 100 Thieves member isn’t the only popular figure to call out pro players for complaining about the game with Ninja also criticizing the competitive community for being ‘too negative’.

Indeed, not many players will be able to compete in the upcoming Fortnite World Cup and Epic offering prize pools available for anyone to win can only be viewed as a positive.

The tournaments can also be a platform for aspiring players to make a name for themselves and potentially forge a career in esports.
