In the latest episode of Turner "Tfue" Tenney struggles, he was disqualified from a Twitch Rivals Minecraft tournament because of cheating. The painful part is that his team had won the Twitch Rivals Minecraft Mystery Games and got punished afterwards.
Tfue proclaimed Fortnite dead a couple of weeks ago. He backs up that claim by playing in Minecraft tournaments. His most recent event activity ended in misery for him and his squad though, as they got disqualified after finishing first place.

Why Was Tfue Disqualified from Twitch Rivals Minecraft Mystery Games?
Tfue and co. joined the tournament with the intent of winning it, which was backed by an illegal move that cost them dearly in the end. The (former) Fortnite streamer had raised his brightness settings, which can give you quite the advantage in Minecraft.

It is also illegal. The rules are strict on this particular setting for reasons you can see above: competitive imbalance. We don't know if Tfue did not pay attention to the Twitch Rivals Minecraft Mystery Games rule book or simply thought he could get away with it, but he was visibly shocked and fairly mad about the disqualification.

Mad or not, Tfue's actions resulted in his team missing out on the first place and the $50,000 price that goes with it. Maybe next time he should give the rules a quick read-through before meddling with his settings.
