A Console Player DOMINATED Pros And People Are MAD! (Fortnite PS4 + Xbox)

Hey what is going on guys, in this video today
we’re gonna be discussing another really great piece of news regarding console Fortnite. Sometime early Monday morning the official
PS4 twitter account randomly announced that they would be hosting a solos tournament named
the “Fortnite celebration cup”. The dates for the event are scheduled for
the the 15th and 16th of February, and it’s going to have a total prize pool of 1 million
US dollar so definitely pretty significant. It’s also an open tournament which means anybody
can play, you don’t have to have a certain amount of arena points or any other qualifier. And along with the monetary prize pool the
tournament will also include certain cosmetic rewards for the top 5%, top 25%, and top 50%
of finishers which we’ll get into more detail about in a little. So after not having a single console only
tournament in first 2 years or so of Fortnite’s existence, in just the last 6 months we’ve
had the 1 million dollar xbox-only tournament, the winter royale, and now a 1 million dollar
PS4-only tournament. Plus on top of that we’ve also gotten a ton
of those weekly console platform cash cups. So now, let’s get into more detail about this
PS4 Fortnite celebration tournament because I’ve seen a lot of players confused about
certain aspects of it. Alright so the first thing that I want to
cover here is the general format, timing, and rewards system for the event. So probably the biggest thing people are confused
about involves the reward distribution. So this is a 2 day tournament like I mentioned
in the intro, the first day is Saturday February 15th and the second day is Sunday February
16th. However you can’t earn money on both days. On the first day the 15th, the prizes are
purely cosmetics and the rewards are exact same for every region. If you finish in the top 50% in any region
you’ll be rewarded with the “Take Cover” In-game Cosmetic Spray.” So when you consider the fact that probably
20-30% of people are only gonna play 1-2 games and then quit, if you try at all and play
the entire set of game that prize should pretty much be an absolute slam dunk. But again it’s only a spray so I don’t think
too many people will be hyped about that. Then if you finish in the top 25% for any
region which also shouldn’t be superrr difficult, you’ll get the “Wild Accent” pickaxe and
also the spray from finishing in the top 50%. And finally if you finish top 5% which is
probably gonna be somewhat difficult for a lot of players, you’ll get the “Tango” skin,
and also the previous 2 rewards I mentioned. So I would guess that on Saturday people aren’t
gonna be absolutely trying their hearts out, mainly due to the fact that there’s no money
on the line. It’s still a competitive event and there are
still prizes at stake though, so I would personally recommend still playing at least a little
on the first day. You can get a cool skin and pickaxe for free
and maybe more importantly kinda hone your strategy for the next day when it really matters. So the 2nd day which again is Sunday the 16th
is when it really starts to get juicy, this single day is when all $1 million dollars
are gonna be given out. So first let’s briefly take a look at the
prize pool for the 2 most popular regions, Europe and NA East. We’ll start with Europe here since it actually
has the biggest prize pool and you can tell right off the bat that this is very similar
to what you saw with winter royale. This isn’t a tournament where anybody’s gonna
be walking away with a ton of money, but a lot of people are gonna be walking away with
some solid cash. Top 10 ranges from 1.1k to 3k, top 100 is
$400-$900, and then it starts to drop off all the way down to top 1500 which is still
a solid $200. And keep in mind, this is a solos tournament
so unlike the winter royale this money is all yours you don’t need to split it with
any teammates. Then moving onto to NA East, top 10 goes from
2.5k for first down to 900 for 10th, it’s $275-$800 for top 100, and then again down
to 200, but this time it’s for the top 1000 players instead of top 1500. And I’m not gonna show any other regions since
they kinda vary a lot, but I’ll be sure to link the full rules page down in the description
below so you can check any other region you may be interested in. So now let’s get into the rules and general
format of how this is going to work. We know that each session will be three hours
long, and the maximum amount of games per session will be 10, so basically the exact
same time and total matches as a cash cup.Now one thing we’re not 100% sure about yet is
the actual time of day the event will take place. The winter royale started at 5 PM local time
for each region and since it was a 4 hour event lasted until 9. But the weekly cash cups that are only 3 hours
start at 6 PM and also obviously end at 9. So since this is a 3 hour ordeal I would definitely
put my money on a 6 PM start time, but 5 PM is also a possibility so just keep that in
mind if you’re making any kind of plans for this, and we’ll know for sure when they actually
add the event into the game which should happen very soon. Now the scoring system is actually very interesting
here. A victory royale is worth 10 points, top 5
placement gives you 7 points, top 15 placement gives you 5, and top 25 placement gives you
3, and eliminations are worth the typical 1 point each. Knowing this scoring system is actually incredibly
important, because it’s dramatically different than the scoring system of solo cash cups. And to showcase that, let’s just quickly compare
each placement level and the points it gives: So in a typical solo cash cup or even hypnite
a victory royale was worth 3 points, and here it’s worth 10. A top 5 was worth 2 points, here it’s 7. Top 15 was also 2, here’s 5, and the only
thing that’s the same is that in both a top 25 is worth 3. So in a cash cup the total placement points
you’d get from a win would be 10, in this tournament it’s a whopping 25. And when you account for the fact that elimination
are still worth 1 point each, I don’t think it takes a genius to understand that placement,
and especially top 15 placement is going to be so ridiculously important here. Just to put it in perspective, a guy that
gets 22 kills and finishes in 16th place would get less points than a guy who gets a 1 kill
win. At least in my opinion, that’s just absolutely
crazy to think about, So this tournament in my opinion is good for a variety of different
reasons. First off and obviously the biggest one is
that much like the winter royale, you don’t have to be a top 0.0001% player to make money. In tournaments like the FNCS and world cup
that’s kinda how it goes. But here top 1500 or top 1000 is a lot more
realistic of a goal for the majority of players. And one thing you need to remember about this
compared to the winter royale, is that theoretically the amount of players competing should be
about half as many. The Winter royale was also console-only like
this tournament is, but that included both xbox and ps4 players while this one is PS4
only. Sure I’ve already seen some examples of top
xbox or controller on PC players either dusting off their old PS4 or buying a totally new
one just for this event, but that’s obviously such a small amount of players that it barely
moves the needle. So even if you just get the lowest prize on
2-3 different regions you’re looking at $500 which is really solid for playing a video
game for a day. And even for the players that don’t think
they have a chance at winning any money on day 2, the cosmetic prizes of day 1 are still
a cool little goal to achieve. Playing events like this, even if there’s
only skins on the line instead of money is still really great practice and will guaranteed
make you a better player. Also since this is console only, it also serves
as a nice little break for the forced cross-platform matchmaking of regular pubs and arena matches
that so many console players hate. The final positive is something I alluded
to a bit in the intro, this tournament is just another step towards the development
of a legitimate competitive console Fortnite scene. The winter royale and these weekly cash cups
have been so huge for that, I feel like we’re finally seeing some console players gain large
followings for consistently performing well in these tournaments. You really didn’t see that at all with any
other competitive events in Fortnite history because console players simply didn’t stand
a chance. And I along with many other people always
thought that was so stupid, because console is the #1 most popular platform that people
play Fortnite on. So to make console players pretty much invisible
in the competitive scene just never really made sense to me, but luckily it appears like
that’s finally starting to change. So, I hope you guys enjoyed this video and

Controller hate is purely just people following what other people say, and especially with us CONSOLE AND NOT CONTROLLER PC players tryna grind it aint fair with all the hate, L2 ON TOPPPP

Drip Pec · February 9, 2020 at 8:49 pm

Ghost kamo won summer skirmish 75 k , just sayin

lawrence davidson · February 9, 2020 at 9:24 pm

ole well if the pc guys won it b ok if they dominated…so console won

lawrence davidson · February 9, 2020 at 9:24 pm

it's a personal Choice…use a controller if u want or don't…its your choice

Exploitt · February 9, 2020 at 11:13 pm

Unknown army plays legacy btw

ElfenTee Games · February 9, 2020 at 11:36 pm

please wrote the title correctly, it is not a console player, if that were the case he would have to make do with 60 FPS and many bugs. Since Epic Games shoots players at consoles and your group that made them big, you can only say one thing about Epic (Fuck You)

WubTV · February 10, 2020 at 12:48 am

Clickbait hes not on fucking console

Vetex · February 10, 2020 at 1:35 am

Controller not console, dont get it mixed

herod911 · February 10, 2020 at 2:10 am

Controller players are at a disadvantage period … it's the reason I havent played in 2 months I'm done with fortnite just incase you care lol

crymes · February 10, 2020 at 2:50 am

what about idropbodiez

hero mask388 · February 10, 2020 at 4:30 am

PC players need to stop acting like bitches and just take the L

prod.z · February 10, 2020 at 5:46 am

Just stating my opinion but why can’t it be because the controller player is just better than the kbam players? Maybe it’s just that

.Over ReplayZ · February 10, 2020 at 6:51 am

There’s a difference between a console player and a controller player dumb ass

iivrson · February 10, 2020 at 6:54 am

Breso just isn’t console

awkbunny · February 10, 2020 at 9:02 am

building and editing as fast as people like bugha and clix is insanely difficult on controller. its much easier when you have mouse buttons and a million different keybinds. the fact that kb&m users still complain till this day about controller players in tournaments is insane. there is a big reason why this is barely the first controller won event

Chris_2003 · February 10, 2020 at 9:40 am

PC Players Complain About Aim Assist When They Have 0 Bloom And 144+ FPS

Logan Hayes · February 10, 2020 at 10:32 am

PC does have an advantage over console. People on MW aren't complaining about aim assist. Y'all just mad because you get owned by a controller player. He's just good at the game. Get over it!

Wilgens14 · February 10, 2020 at 12:02 pm

Since controller has aim assist if you win you get no credit it’s all aim assist

Anything4Frags · February 10, 2020 at 12:53 pm

So a controller player on a computer won a tournament. Not while playing on console.

Fritos Mobile · February 10, 2020 at 1:34 pm

Controllers are not made for shooter games that's why they need aim assist so they shouldn't get an advantage to win cause that's like giving an armless man aimbot cause he's at a disadvantage

Doctor AA123 · February 10, 2020 at 4:23 pm

Mouse and keyboard players are cry babies

Yumums · February 10, 2020 at 4:40 pm

Controller doesn't get better bloom, PC gets better bloom to compete against controller's aim assist.

SithKiller 4 · February 10, 2020 at 5:10 pm

I honestly think this is the most balanced controller and keyboard+mouse has been in a while. Still needs work but it’s a good start

Andrea Mallia · February 10, 2020 at 6:02 pm

Imagine being so delusional and immature that you shame kbm players for being mad that they get triple dinked in comp playlists then you say this season is fair because controller players can triple dink from long distance. You’re so closed minded its legit insane

DeathGrinder B · February 10, 2020 at 6:35 pm

the aim assist is super strong on console. he didn't miss a shot there, cant remember which clip. on pc the bloom is no joke. u wont hit a shot full auto. but controller u can. ul hit more shots anyway at full auto. ive fired full auto at close range before not hitting a shot cause of bloom. controller is not like that it just isn't. pc prolly has a advantage with building though. but not impossible on controller. im going to test the bloom on controller tonight.

CraftBuilds · February 10, 2020 at 7:31 pm

controller on pc player* not a console player

Astril Codex · February 10, 2020 at 8:59 pm

Of course they are mad, we can't be having controller players winning something lol

Moyqz YT · February 10, 2020 at 9:29 pm

Where’s my 60 FPS console players at

R2B Strall · February 10, 2020 at 9:45 pm

If controller players are so advantaged and you’ll see having good mechanics on controller is not that easy even with aim assist I had to play 1hear and an half to have a correct aim so please respect us

svrxzy · February 10, 2020 at 9:49 pm

4:30 gronky said 😳🤬

Jesse Wilburn · February 10, 2020 at 9:53 pm

Good points all. I think the fact that controller players are winning now is a combination of things. As you said, the meta and means of rotation are totally contributing

Derek Wilson · February 11, 2020 at 1:30 am

The KBM Vs controller debate is interesting… In the 2019 world cup 88 of the 100 players were KBM with only 12 controller players. Maybe in the 2020 world cup this could double to 24 controllers, maybe 30 at the most? But until its 50 / 50 the advantage is still on the KBM side. Fundamentally Fortnite is different from every other game… Building dominates and the best builder/edit / wall take/trap placement skills have a huge advantage… That still means KBM wins.

Ghost · February 11, 2020 at 1:49 am

As if it’s hard to play on controller

Zach The Game Freak · February 11, 2020 at 7:58 am

is it me or your fortnite graphics or quality looks so different

vElevate · February 11, 2020 at 9:32 am

A console isn’t a controller. You should know this lol. Or is it just click bait

Ronaldo Prophete · February 11, 2020 at 11:47 am

kbm players need to stop complaining. they have just as much chance at winning big tournaments as we do, if not more. Although our aim assist give us an advantage, your editing and building mechanics will always be much easier to learn and get better at than controller players. Not only that, many good competitive kbm players have just as good aim skills and tracking as any controller player, and some , like mongraal, have better aim than controller players. In my opinion, kbm players are just mad that controller players are now getting a more even playing field, and are beating them much more often. if you are a kbm player that doesnt have as good aim, hop on kovaaks or something and stop getting butthurt over the one advantage controller players get.

Ronaldo Prophete · February 11, 2020 at 12:00 pm

I play both controller on console and pc and regular kbm, and i have found that although i have only played kbm for around 7 months and i have played controller since the game came out, not only do i have more wins on pc, in my opinion i am much better on kbm in all aspects of the game, it took less time to learn and get good at, and box fighting with a controller vs kbm, most of the time kbm has the advantage bcuz of editing advantages.

Tommy Welch · February 11, 2020 at 3:43 pm

These keyboard and mouse dudes are so insecure, it hurts. They think that bc they have triple edit key binds and shit that they're just automatically supposed to win so when they don't, they call it a conspiracy. Grow up.

Vlix · February 11, 2020 at 5:22 pm


Max Lodge · February 11, 2020 at 7:22 pm

6:15 is all I need to say. Nerf aim assist

JeFo · February 11, 2020 at 8:28 pm

He is not a console player, he is on PC with a controller and actually is assist is a little OP cuz he is not even good mechanically, he is killing all this guys with fat pump damage and lasering them so…

Alex Conner · February 11, 2020 at 8:55 pm

Unknown army/wolfey both had aimbot like aim before this season in the World Cup sooo wasn’t just this season that made them god like

Alex Conner · February 11, 2020 at 8:57 pm

Controller should have better aim, m+k should have better builds allow m+k to use macros editing settings and boom now you each have something that’s op

AcidBeats 17 · February 11, 2020 at 10:40 pm

I think controller needs recoil like KBM

Nightcure · February 11, 2020 at 10:46 pm

How does the platform you play on define the player? So if i can’t afford a PC, which I can’t right now, and play on console despite how good I am, I must lack game sense as I am not on keyboard and mouse?

oFlakeys · February 11, 2020 at 11:18 pm

Just wondering if you think I'm a good console player 🤔

AlwaysFair · February 11, 2020 at 11:20 pm

The one thing that would be great is If you could have a different scope sensitivity for the likes of your AR, sniper, smg and shotgun, cause have to keep it turned down for long range shots with linear and that negatively effects short range aim with smg, shotgun

Core Relation · February 12, 2020 at 2:53 am

You mean a control player on pc

Wavynarco · February 12, 2020 at 4:54 am

*controller player headshot (45-60 damage) mkb plauers omfg aimbot

riskyplays likesbananas · February 12, 2020 at 5:37 am

Who else plays kb and mouse on console?

Mastershell · February 12, 2020 at 6:19 am

I remember watching a bunch of clips of different games and people saying "console pfff.. Do that on pc, not impressed" then you have some gifted controller players who do it on PC and now it's "That's all Aim assist." You still have to be competent, if aim assist was so great nobody on console would complain about having terrible teammates in various games.

James Nicholson · February 12, 2020 at 6:31 am

Great points.

Fyre · February 12, 2020 at 12:57 pm

aim assist is a little strong in some points rn but the kid just won a tourney chill

KushSmokeGunSmoke ! · February 12, 2020 at 1:39 pm

“Hey what is goin on guys”

Nijoel McCloud · February 12, 2020 at 4:57 pm

Who cares both PC and console players have their advantages……smh get over it us adults need to stop complaining about game that's supposed to be fun for all.

R.I.P LUNA · February 12, 2020 at 9:42 pm

Where was all this back in the day. K&m players were op and and now k&m players bitch at controller players

Drew Lutz · February 12, 2020 at 9:48 pm

There are so many crying lil bitches in mouse and keys… ha!!!

Matt · February 13, 2020 at 12:55 am

Wait, how did you switch out the purple smg for the gold on without going into your inventory? You had a slot available so it should have picked up the gold smg into the open slot? 4:10

Caleb's Video Buffet · February 13, 2020 at 2:14 am

I as an controller player to me controller players have a disadvantage because of the lack of buttons they have but I used to be a PC player and I fell like controller is easyer

Ikiguy · February 13, 2020 at 7:21 am

"Pc MaStEr RaCe"… 😂

Yahil Roa · February 13, 2020 at 12:20 pm

Kbm players: controller players have aimbot

Mobile players: *laughs in op aim assist while playing 6 finger claw*

Xyifix · February 13, 2020 at 8:27 pm

Obviously we are at some type of disadvantage if keyboard players usually win every tournament and place way better then controller players

Empire chris · February 13, 2020 at 9:01 pm

Fuck pc players bro so toxic so as Benjy and mongraal the only one that isn’t toxic is faze replays

GYSCosby · February 13, 2020 at 9:11 pm

Think about this. With everyone being forced to crossplay the stigma of "the pc god" almost vanished. It's not a novelty to find yourself facing pc players and console/controller players have gotten used to the competition. That's a huge reason why controller players are starting to dominate

Ybn Ybn · February 13, 2020 at 10:30 pm

All of the dislikes are mad mouse and keyboard players.

Mike321795 · February 14, 2020 at 3:30 am

Why cant controller players just learn to aim without aim assist like pc players.. when I first started my aim was shit but over time you get better same with controller

zzisty · February 14, 2020 at 8:32 am

Clockbait change title to controller! 2 way different things. Console doesn’t stand a chance unless they are on legacy lol

zzisty · February 14, 2020 at 8:36 am

Breso had by far the best placement and consistency he deserved it. He’s also exponetial, least competitive of all the aim assist types. Props to the man

Q Fun · February 14, 2020 at 2:38 pm

I finnally bought my pc about 2 months ago…. looks like I need to plug a controller in if I want ever decide too play this game again though Lool, idk how we can balance this shit, but the fact that controller has no bloom on smg’s is insane

Garret Lemaster · February 14, 2020 at 2:58 pm

Amen gronky it looks like the controller players are getting favored but that's only because we're finally getting some attention and like we have like 10 buttons and problems not even that unless you play claw and kbm has like 40

exuucute · February 14, 2020 at 3:40 pm

Used to like your video but all your videos are just the same

Callum Inglis · February 14, 2020 at 7:34 pm

I honestly don’t get fortnite sometimes everyone is like console shouldn’t be able to compete with pc? Then why have cross platform at all then makes no sense

devilboykillz · February 15, 2020 at 1:00 am

i wanna see computer player play with out instant weapon swap. Make em scroll threw the slots like we do.

Alex Rush · February 15, 2020 at 1:57 am

Why did you need to clickbait though smh gronky

qlatypus · February 16, 2020 at 4:40 am

kbm: kills controller player
kbm: relys on 100% human imput
controller: just has to put crosshair on player and aim assist does the rest

Bodega · February 17, 2020 at 2:12 am

Controller on top

ELITEusman · February 17, 2020 at 8:59 am

Bazurkin · February 17, 2020 at 10:33 am

Really put console in his title IMAGINE🤣

Dreamcleaver · February 17, 2020 at 11:26 am

Srsly at this point you have to be really stupid to think that there is nothing wrong with controller aim assist on PC. Controller players just keep lazering everybody with very little effort. It's a joke tbh. Just watch some controller gameplay on PC and it's evident.

Rabies · February 19, 2020 at 12:57 pm

Nah aim assist is way too overpowered pretty ridiculous tbg

Eric Funkhouser · February 19, 2020 at 1:02 pm

Who cares if there mad. Switch to controller or stfu. Tired of hearing it. You’re good or trash

valentijn hoogendoorn · February 19, 2020 at 4:10 pm

Your not a real console player, you don’t play on console you play on controller

Freakin' Out · February 19, 2020 at 5:37 pm

8:30 didn't he make a video about the meta being bad for controller players a 2 weeks ago?

VanishedJuul · February 19, 2020 at 9:19 pm

Bro a controller was bound to win something at some point. Idk why people are complaining when it finally happened.

Dean · February 19, 2020 at 11:16 pm

Lock inputs for pc ,reduce mkb bloom by like 15% ,make the strafe movement on mkb the same in BR as it is in STW , and unlock aspect ratio lock for pc. Then AA would be fine.

MaxGamer7 · February 19, 2020 at 11:29 pm

I understand the perspective of someone who plays with a keyboard and mouse in Fortnite, who has played a numerous number of hours of Kovaak's to train their aim and get better at the game but the argument that aim assist should just be removed is stupid. Aim assist in its current state is definitely a problem, don't get me wrong, but it should be lowered, not gone in my opinion.

Marquece Mccrae · February 20, 2020 at 11:10 am

Can you please talk about how pump shotguns will not fire please its so annoying

Tiny Nezuko · February 20, 2020 at 11:31 am

Did this mans really say controller players have been winning everything since we got good at building we haven’t won anything really

Gaming Central · February 20, 2020 at 1:30 pm

Stup the f up u dont know what u talking about?

iTz Enma · February 22, 2020 at 2:53 am

Remember when when crosplay frist hit and pc player find bad player and they where like pff he is a control player… yeah dont forget that.

KilianVk · February 23, 2020 at 12:23 am

At the end of the day it does not matter how good you are on controller. You cannot out speed editing and building against mongraal or bugha lol kbm players need to stop bitching all the time. They can start bitching about a disadvantage when when you can’t use keybinds for choosing a weapon but need to use scroll wheel and when they have to press a standard button before they get in the building thing

Dude really put subtitles from an old video for SEO, not considering that people would actually use them. Not cool!

Justin_Time_ For_Fun_ · February 28, 2020 at 5:49 pm

For pros and cons, I can understand of the controller with its advantages. Though, k&M players have dominated for about 3 years when it was just pc. Now that it is set to play on cross platform, such as mobile and console, it is an all wack argument. What I think is the best way to solve is settings would be specified for certain things if you want to compete, like controller using building for triggers and buttons to other ways of trying to get better, while key and mouse have it easier with faster flicks, frames on pc, and even the scrolling wheel on the mouse with extra buttons on some mice too.

Mobile, it’s random because of all finger workings you got to work on a phone or iPad.

Best thing is to know is competition is evolving and technology is allowing cross platform happen on the latest consoles, mobile, and computers, so it leads to different levels of usage and skills to go against others, whether it’s for many years or just a few months. I say let it go on and see how it ends up when finals and the World Cup happens, be interesting to watch someone from its original platform to win the game, even more shocking if it’s mobile.

Calebfire10 · March 1, 2020 at 3:50 pm

Pros: Controller players are op and have no disadvantage!

Me: Laughs in playing on Switch with pro controller
