Fortnite has become less enjoyable for players who just want to play the game casually.

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.

Fortnite has become one of the most popular games in the world.

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.”

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.


Fortnite director reportedly hints at Smash Ultimate DLC fighter crossover

Hot on the heels of Minecraft’s huge arrival in Smash Ultimate, could Fortnite be next in line? Epic Games creative director Donald Mustard has reportedly hinted at that being the case.

Smash Bros. collaborations have long-been one of the most exciting aspects of Nintendo’s popular fighting game. Teasers are always the talk of the town as developers hint at what major addition could be on the horizon in a nearby update.

While the Smash community is still getting comfortable with Minecraft’s Steve joining the fight, it could already be time to look towards the next character.

A recent Zoom call between Geoff Keighley, Donald Mustard, and select fans was kept under wraps at the time. Whatever fans asked, whatever topics came up, it wasn’t for the general public in the moment.

However, as with most things in the gaming industry, certain details have reportedly leaked online days after the fact. Among the topics discussed was a Fortnite crossover in Smash: here’s what the Creative Director had to say.

Throughout this Zoom call, “a few hints had been revealed about the future of Fortnite,” prominent leaker FireMonkey’ said on Oct. 28. The first major revelation is a Fortnite announcement is lined up for The Game Awards on Dec. 10.

This isn’t the first time Epic’s battle royale has made a splash at Keighley’s annual awards show. The Block was revealed back in 2018 and another big announcement could be lined up for the 2020 show. Perhaps it relates to an upcoming in-game event as the new Season draws near. Or maybe there’s a chance we see another Smash tie-in revealed rather soon.

2018’s Game Awards shocked the world with one of the biggest Smash crossover announcements yet. Persona 5’s Joker joined the fight and now Fortnite could be next for a similar reveal. 

When pressed on the subject, Donald Mustard didn’t shut down the possibility. He simply “stated he can’t comment about it,” according to the leaked intel. Funnily enough, last time a dev said “no comment,” their game ended up in Smash.

Obviously, there’s no telling how significant this kind of crossover might be. We’ve seen everything from entirely new fighters to simple Mii skins as well. Given the popularity of Fortnite, however, there’s every chance a crossover with Smash would make waves in the industry.

Keep your eyes peeled over the coming weeks for any additional teasers. Keighley’s 2020 Game Awards kicks off on Thursday, December 10.
