Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony is hosting a lot of Fortnite Tournaments in recent months.

on their skill – they compete against some of the big names in the community.
The latest tournament was NickEh30 Cup featuring a lot of big streamers and a massive prize pool of $10,000.
The tournament was spectacular and the winner was a lesser knows professional
player named Crumble, however, he wasn’t the only point of attraction – there was
a huge stream sniping drama that went on.
In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.
NickEh30 wasn’t very much impressed but disappointed, he believed that
the YouTuber was stream sniping him and he went straight into the the
replay mode to report him and a few others.
He Did managed to get the Twitch streamer banned for stream sniping in Tournament but was it right?
Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. Here is the full clip of everything that happened there – share your views in the comment section.
However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He denied every fact that he was stream sniping Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.
Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.”
Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.
“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”
However, he will soon get unbanned as it will last only 24 hours, but was he stream sniping?, anyways this drama did not affect the winner spot and the prize was given to the deserving player.
