Ninja has failed to earn himself a spot in the Fortnite World Cup finals next month.

With over 22 million subscribers on YouTube, Ninja is one of Fortnite's biggest streamers.

Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins was eliminated from the solo competition around two weeks ago, and failed to qualify with his Duo partner Malachi 'Reverse2k' Greine on Friday.

They finished with a total of 64 points, 25 shy of what they needed to qualify for the finals.

Ninja did confirm on his Twitter account that he would still be at the finals though, even if he's not competing.
