Random Time! - Pokemon's Lavender Town theme recreated in Fortnite

This isn't the first time we've shared Fortnite music creations, but it's definitely the most creepy video we've featured yet! No matter how many times I hear that song, it still makes me feel uneasy.

Fortnite glitch may have revealed part of next season's map

The above map comes straight from a game of Fortnite. As a game was loading in, it seems a different version of the in-game map loaded for a few seconds, and then was replaced with the standard map. As you can see in the image above, the map does fall in-line with what dataminers were digging up, including the appearance of a scorched Wailing Woods. You can check out a comparison of the current in-game map below to see the differences.

Fortnite datamining points to destroyed Tilted Towers and fire-ravaged Wailing Woods

Dataminers are continuing to pour through the most recent Fortnite update, and they've discovered some details pointing to big changes for some map favorites.

Data pulled from the game includes a new version of Tilted Towers, which basically shows the location reduced to building rubble. On top of that, Wailing Woods appears to be set for a big wave of forest fires. The new version of the location appears to be completely torched.

All of this could tie into the earlier datamined info that points to an upcoming major earthquake on the game. We'll keep you up-to-date on anymore leaked details moving forward.

Alfonso Ribeiro's Fortnite lawsuit against Epic hits a roadblock, U.S. Copyright Office denies copyright for the Carlton Dance

Looks like there's been a major setback for celebrities aiming to get some compensation from Epic for their Fortnite emotes.

Actor Alfonso Ribeiro, best known as Carlton on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, was suing Epic over their inclusion of the 'Carlton Dance' in Fortnite. Ribeiro claimed he invented the dance, and Epic was profiting off of his creation without offering him any payment.

Plans for the lawsuit moving ahead have now been stifled due to a setback with the U.S. Copyright Office. The office has told Mr. Ribeiro that his claim has been denied, as you can't copyright his specific dance. Their official statement is as follows.

“The combination of these three dance steps is a simple routine that is not registrable as a choreographic work.”

Other celebrities aiming to get compensation for their dances are likely going to be in the same boat here, which potentially means Epic won't have to worry about any further lawsuits on the matter.

Teacher fired after offering to play Fortnite with students

Brett Belsky has been let go from his teaching job at MS 890. The reasoning for his firing all boils down to Fortnite.

Belsky was trying to reach out to two students in particular who were struggling a bit in school. He overheard the students talking about Fortnite, and offered to play some of the game with them if they managed to get their work done.

"As a teacher, you reach out the best you can. These kids talk about video games. I said, 'If you can get this work done, maybe I'll play against you.'"

The students took Belsky up on his offer, and he stayed true to his word. He played about 20 minutes of Fortnite with the two, but only after they he told them to get permission from their parents. It appears that one of the boys didn't tell both parents, or never told the parents at all though. When one father heard that a teacher played Fortnite with his son, he reported it to the principal, and the teacher was eventually let go.

Belsky now says he should have discussed the idea with some of the higher-ups at school before making the deal, but still, it doesn't seem like this should be a fierable offense.
