SypherPK continues to bring some of the biggest names from the “OG” Fortnite days back to the game. He already helped to revitalize Ninja’s interest in Fortnite, which is now back in the regular rotation for the streamer. This time, he’s partnering-up with his old duo partner, NickMercs.

The latter streamer initially expressed his interest in returning to Fortnite on November 13, writing in a Tweet, “Bro I miss playing Fortnite. Some of the best times I’ve ever had, gaming. Considering throwin’ it back in the rotation.”

If Nick were to return to Fortnite, it would make sense that he’d join forces with his one friend who still plays the game every day: SypherPK.

On November 16, Sypher tweeted a question that seemed more like an announcement: “Fortnite tonight with @NickMercs?” A few minutes later, he tweeted his stream schedule for the week. His Monday stream made it official: “Fortnite w/ NickMercs at night!”

We can only hope that Nick takes to Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 in the same way that Ninja did. In many ways, the most recent season of the game was a return to form – bringing back some fan-favorite weapons and the general “fun” feeling that Fortnite had been missing for the first part of Chapter 2.

It’s only anecdotal, but it feels like Epic fiddled with the skill-based matchmaking in this season as well. The games seem a bit easier lately, with less sweat-filled solos than there had been in the past.

Sypher’s stream will begin at 2PM central but the NickMercs portion will likely begin a few hours into the broadcast. Tune into either stream to learn more about when NickMercs will finally return to Fortnite.

Luminosity Gaming continues to rack-up the Fortnite signings, this time turning to longtime Fortnite streamer and competitor, Nick “Nick Eh 30” Amyoony. The always-positive content creator joins the likes of Muselk and MrFreshAsian on Luminosity’s content creation roster after the signing on November 11.

“It’s always been about community,” Nick told Dexerto’s Mike Kent regarding his Luminosity deal. “They’ve (Luminosity) just been one of those organizations that I’ve talked to and they really have that same emphasis as me, which is community and family … Even from that first call that I did with them when I was going through different organizations, you could really tell they had that emphasis on family and community.”

Nick Eh 30’s announcement featured a highly-produced documentary-style video that covered his early years; culminating in Nick revealing the news to his parents in a touching moment. The streamer is one of the most recognizable names in Fortnite after three years of streaming the game – always with a positive attitude.

Luminosity has had a long history with Fortnite – dating back to when Nick Eh 30 was still streaming on YouTube. The org was a large player in the Fortnite scene when the game first came out. Ninja was a member when Fortnite was still fresh and the org later added SypherPK, the trap king, to the mix.

After a dwindling interest in the competitive scene, it seemed like Luminosity was content to let Fortnite pass them by. They had players like Khuna and Hogman, but weren’t making the same splash-signings that some other organizations had been.

Fast-forward a year and Luminosity has one of the strongest Fortnite rosters out there. They have competitive players like Jamper, Keys, Slackes, and Eclipsae along with a stable of content creators from all across the globe.

With the signing of Nick Eh 30, Luminosity is making a push for one of the most versatile Fortnite rosters in existence. 2020 was a huge year for the organization; signing some of the biggest content creators and pro players in Fortnite. Nick Eh 30 is another massive notch in their belt.

Nick will continue to do what he does best, now with the backing of one of the most established esports organizations out there. We’re excited to see where this collaboration leads.

Fortnite streamer, Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan, officially announced his exclusive commitment to Twitch on November 10 after years of streaming on the platform. Sypher was one of the original adopters of Fortnite back in the day, and one of the only streamers of that group who still regularly plays the game.

Sypher is best known for his educational commentaries, informative Twitch streams, and – of course – being one of the most innovative players when it came to using Traps in Fortnite. His reputation eventually led to the nickname, “The Trap King.”

“Today, I’m happy to announce that I have officially re-signed to stream exclusively on TwitchTV,” Sypher said in his announcement video. “I’m excited to keep doing amazing things with our community. I’ll see you guys on stream.”

Every journey begins with a single step. We are kicking off this new era streaming exclusively on Twitch! So keep your eyes peeled, there’s so much more in store. pic.twitter.com/ANqN16RKpq

Sypher has been streaming and making videos from a young age. The PK in his name stands for Player Killing from his Runescape days. From there, Sypher made a name for himself playing Elder Scrolls Online. He was one of the bigger creators in the game during the early days, before moving onto games like For Honor and Overwatch.

In late 2017, Sypher decided to make the switch to a new Battle Royale that had just come out: Fortnite. He sacrificed his dedicated viewership and took the hit on the chin – seeing the potential in the new game.

When more streamers began picking up the game, Sypher did what he needed to do to stand out. He began streaming early in the morning to gain a following in other regions. Any early fans of Sypher know how hard he worked to get where he is. He’s a true example of how the grind can pay off.

Now, two years later, Sypher is one of the most recognizable names in all of Fortnite – the biggest game on the planet.

The sky’s the limit for Sypher – both on Twitch and on any of his three YouTube channels. We look forward to seeing what milestones he hits next.

Fortnite Nick Eh 30 Cup

Nick Eh 30 is part of the original crop of Fortnite streamers to hit the scene, and one of the only members of that group who still regularly plays the game. The always-positive Fortnite creator is now hosting a Solo tournament for his fans and followers, offering a prize pool of $10,000.

This will be Nick’s first time hosting a Fortnite tournament, although he’s no stranger to competition. Nick might be a content creator, first and foremost, but he competed in all of the Ninja Battles tournaments and even tried his hand at the FNCS in recent seasons.

Nick announced his upcoming tournament on Twitter on November 9. It will take place on November 22, giving players a chance to win some money before the Thanksgiving holiday.

According to a follow-up tweet, the games will only be played on NA-East, although it’s not region-locked and anyone can compete.

The tournament only has two rounds: Open Qualifiers and Finals. Since it’s his own tournament, Nick will automatically make it into the final round. He’ll join the top 99 players from Open Qualifiers, fighting for their share of the $10,000 prize pool.

The tournament will be placement-heavy, with placement points going up by 1 for each 10 placements until the top 75. After that, each five placements receive a point until they make it to the top 30, where each placement will be a point until the top two. The top two earn two points and the winner gets five. Each elimination is also worth one point.
