Overview

Elite Eomzo & DT Rise Fortnite DDoS Controversy refers to discussions about competitive Fortnite esports players DT Rise and Eomzo getting DDoSed (Distributed Denial of Service, a cyberattack that involves blocking access to a site or server by flooding the bandwidth of a network) during the North America-Central Fortnite Championship Series (FNCS) in late February 2024. The duo finished in first place after day 1 of the tournament, however, Eomzo accused a yet-unknown individual of throttling his speeds via DDoS, causing the duo to finish in 8th place overall.

Background

On February 24th, 2024, Canadian esports player Eomzo posted his team's Fortnite Championship Series Day 1 rank to his X / Twitter account, showing him and DT Rise finishing first overall.[1]

However, on February 25th, Eomzo and Rise reported unforeseen technical difficulties in loading and playing Fortnite, leading them to conclude that they were being DDoSed. Eomzo made a series of posts[2] expressing his anguish about the development that same day (seen below).

Developments

Eomzo hosted a stream on his Twitch[3] channel on February 25th, 2024, in which he can be heard crying while discussing his and DT Rise's failure to rank high during the FNCS finals (seen below).



DT Rise also posted to his X account @RiseFn[4] their position on the leaderboard on February 25th, writing, "8th I'm at a loss for words," gathering over 2,000 likes in a day.

Eomzo made a post[6] on February 26th, 2024, thanking people for their support and promising to "figure out who did this."

Online Reactions

Various competitive Fortnite fans expressed their disappointment in learning that Eomzo and Rise were allegedly DDoSed during the game, with some saying that they could have won first place under different circumstances (example comments from Redditors /u/Familiar-Leading and /u/MountainLPYT1 seen below).[5]


[-] [-] Familiar-Leading 20 points 4 hours ago Such a heartbreak for eomzo and rise they were sitting in a good position 30 points ahead and just had internet issues I'm surprised they didn't drop off the top 10 because that's mental killer even a motivation killer to keep playing hope the boys landed on their feet permalink source embed save save-RES report reply MountainLPYT115 points 4 hours ago God man I feel so terrible for Eomzo and Rise, so f------ awful. Clix top 5 and Cold/ Acorn win is pretty good at least permalink source embed save save-RES report reply
