Fortnite is one of the most popular games in the world today, with players regularly jumping into the Battle Bus in search of a Victory Royale.
Since the game’s release in September 2017, the skill of the game’s players has skyrocketed, as those who play the battle royale title continue to improve and become more comfortable with building and shooting.
While the increase in talent among Fortnite players is a sign of the game’s continued growth, the 100 Thieves member believes that it has had a detrimental effect on some aspects of the game - and has made the game less enjoyable for players who aren’t interested in playing competitively.
In a tweet sent out on Sunday, March 10, Noah suggested that the incredibly high skill level was actually making the game less fun, revealing that after playing a couple of solo matches, he realized there was an issue.
“I got destroyed in my first three games by players wearing soccer skins,” wrote Noah on Twitter. “Got killed by a 13-year-old kid who called me a huge bot after he murdered me. I realized that you have to make Fortnite your part-time job to even play the game casually.”

- Got destroyed by soccer skins my first 3 games
- Got killed by a TTV, went to his stream, and a 13 year old kid called me a huge bot after he murdered me
- Cried a lot
- Realized you have to make Fortnite your part time job to even play casually
Many believe that a proper ranked system is the solution to this issue, as players who want to compete at a high level will likely move to that, while players who want to have fun and play casually can continue to take part in the normal game modes.
Unfortunately for Noah, there are no official plans for Epic Games to introduce a ranked mode into the game.
