We're... back with some more Fortnite!

―Dakotaz’s Intro

Brett Hoffman[1] (born July 13, 1986 (1986-07-13) [age 33]), better known online as Dakotaz (also known as Dark and initialized as DK), is an American Twitch Streamer, YouTuber, and a professional Fortnite player. Brett streams on Twitch everyday and uploads on YouTube almost everyday commentating and making gameplays on something that is recently added to Fortnite and/or the moments, notably snipes.[2]


(Due to his previous gameplay videos being privated by Dakotaz, his old gameplays has been found by the Wayback Machine)

Brett began streaming the month he created his YouTube channel. He emerged from uploading gameplay videos of Infestation: Survivor Stories (formerly known as The War Z) featuring funny moments, announcements, and clips. He gained over 30,000 subscribers from Infestation videos before moving on to H1Z1, and has gained a reputation while doing so. Brett stumbled upon PUBG, gaining partial success off of it before the release of Fortnite. Brett only enveloped 100,000 Twitch followers and 92,000 subscribers on YouTube before Fortnite. Fortnite puts him in the position he is at now for his gameplay, commentaries and snipes.

Personal Life

Brett has a twin brother who goes by his own alias 'Drnkie'. He is also a Twitch Streamer.[3]


TSM (Team SoloMid) is an eSports team that Dakotaz joined alongside HighDistortion on January 11, 2018. Exactly 1 year later, Dakotaz decided to leave TSM on his own will and see what would happen for the rest of the 2019.[4]


Feud with Ninja

Brett and Tyler "Ninja" Blevins has had backlash at each other while livestreaming and on Twitter.[5] It all started on December 19, 2019, with a tweet by Brett talking about how Fortnite is in a "hot garbage" state. Tyler responded saying that he could play another game, but gets bored and 'sleepy' of other games besides Fortnite.[6]

Tyler made a response while live streaming stating that Brett should not call the game "garbage" if it doesn't make him bored or "fall asleep". Brett's final response was to let his opinion go through.[7]

Since the beef days later, Brett hated Tyler's fans sending hate and negativity towards him, and decided to block Tyler on Twitter on December 24, 2019.[8][9]
