The PewDiePie vs. T-Series war is still ongoing, and if you’re not familiar with the battle, let me fill you in.
T-Series is pretty close to overtaking Pewds when it comes to his YouTube sub count, with the two channels going head-to-head in numbers.
PDP has had the largest YouTube channel for a number of years now, finding fame with his Let’s Plays and horror games way back in 2012, but he’s close to being overthrown by T-Series.
If you’re not subscribed to T-Series, it’s a Bollywood music channel that’s run by a company – unlike Pewd’s Meme Reviews, Pew News and other content created by himself and his team.
As the subs-war continues, PDP fans are trying to find ways to get more people onto PewDiePie’s channel – and they want to do it through Fortnite.
A Twitter user by the name of @OGRealFrank posted calling out for a PDP-themed skin to be added to Fortnite, saying: “What if Epic Games teamed up with PewDiePie to defeat T-Series by creating a custom Felix Fortnite skin and the only way to get the skin is by subscribing to PewDiePie?”

The tweet has blown up over on Reddit, with the r/pewdiepiesubmissions forum going wild over the idea.
One Redditer commented: “Ninja can sub to get the skin too. That way he won’t feel so salty. 😉”
Another said: “The number of 9 year olds will grow exponentially through this.”
Epic Games has yet to comment on the hype train, but we all know it’s pretty good at throwing in-jokes, references and gags into Fortnite. I wouldn’t be surprised to see them actually add in a Felix skin, especially considering how often Felix refuses to play the game on his channel.
What if T-Series and Pewdiepie joined forces to defeat Youtube? Now that would be epic!
