Some gamers love the last few minutes of a Fortnite Battle, while others despise it. When I first started playing Fortnite, nobody really knew how to correctly use the building mechanic, so fights were mostly limited to high hills and tactical firefights. This was pretty fun as gamers depended on accuracy, the environment and occasionally wooden walls to claim their victory royale. Now the endgame has become considerably different; the building spams and seemingly endless rocket launcher blasts turn your tiny 20*20m radius into a cartoony apocalypse, while for many this is pretty awesome, for some it’s become a frustration.
Now it seems that Epic Games shares a similar sentiment, in a new blog post, the developers admit that the end game in the battle royale mode is not conducive to the variety of play styles the game can otherwise support.
‘It’s important to support a variety of late game strategies, that don’t boil down to “just build lol”. We strongly believe that the evolution of Fortnite supports a wide range of play styles and counterplay. Currently, the superiority of shotguns, rockets, and uncapped building are such a dominant play style in the final circle that most other strategies are being drowned out.’
Hmm, a part of me thinks that this has to do with the Fortnite x PUBG lawsuit going around.
