So fortnite just got a recent patch update but top gamers are not so happy about it. The patch which was released late march was patch 8.20 and it altered most of the changes made in February.
Some of the changes included the fact that players no longer receive health bonuses when they take out players, and also it now takes longer to get materials.
“Fortnite” creator Epic Games spent six weeks collecting data on how the changes impact the battle royale mode. Ultimately, the development team felt that awarding extra health and building materials for scoring kills was too rewarding.
The changes was said to affect pro players the most but favored new players, the pro players also complained that they don’t get rewards for kills but there is disagreement about whether the change actually makes the game any more welcoming. Shortly after patch 8.20 dropped, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, shared his concerns with the update on his stream. Ninja is the most popular “Fortnite” player in the world with more than 13 million followers on Twitch.
As we all know, the pro players are getting set for the $40 million fortnite World Cup. The competition is gonna be starting by April 13th with weekly online qualifiers. The players will be playing with the same rule as arena mode, but players won’t be able to practice for the next two weeks.
With money on the line, it’s understandable that players are up in arms over such a major change in “Fortnite,” but with only a few days until the competition begins, they’ll have to make the most of the situation.
As we all know, Epic games updates fortnite every week but recently there have been no sign that they are gonna be coming back to the most recent changes.
