Dexerto says “As one of the most popular internet celebs of the past decade, it’s safe to say Ninja has done alright for himself. He boasts the most-followed account on Twitch, has his own sneaker deal with Adidas, and brings home a good chunk of change every month, regardless of what he may be streaming.During his extraordinary rise to the top, however, you would have been hard-pressed to find him playing anything other than Fortnite. Day in, day out the blue-haired sensation had tens of thousands tuning in to watch him excel at the most popular battle royale on the market.”

He wasn’t just a good and funny personality either; Ninja was actually good at Fortnite, often impressing in the world’s best at huge events.

“While his competitive edge saw viewership skyrocket, he’s taken a much more casual approach of late. In fact, he’s pulling the plug altogether: Ninja has made it clear he has no intention of competing in Fortnite again anytime soon.”

“Will you ever return to Fortnite comp?” he was asked during a mellow Final Fantasy XIV broadcast. After a moment to think it through, Ninja outlined how he “more than likely [won’t] return… until it makes sense.”

“Honestly, I don’t want to get sucked back into the competitive sh**,” he stated. As an esports veteran, Ninja knows all very well what its like to get sucked back into a game and become a pro. Having competed in the Halo circuit for the better part of a decade, he knows the commitment needed to reach the top.

Evidently, he’s not ready to jump back in and sacrifice the hours grinding away at competitive Fortnite once again. At least, not for the time being.

Recently, Ninja has still been trying to play various titles and proving his skills online. He reached Radiant in Valorant and later grew an addiction to the punishing League of Legends grind as well.
