BRUTE mechs were first added to the game at the start of Fortnite Season X, and immediately became an unpopular addition to the game due to their incredible power to eliminate opponents, mixed with the ease of use that makes them accessible to any player.
Player likes Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney have already weighed in on the problems they have with the mechanical monstrosities, and now Ali-A has added his name to the list of disgruntled content creators who are desperate to see Epic Games make a change.
In a tweet sent out on Thursday, August 15, the Brit made it clear that he wasn’t a fan of the robots being in the game, and took aim at Epic Games over their failure to nerf them despite continued outcry from the people who play their game.
Dear Epic Games,” the 25-year-old wrote on Twitter. “I love you, but you’re successfully killing your own game and losing players because you’re too stubborn to change the mechs in a way that actually makes them fair.”
“Listen to the community, please.”
Dear @FortniteGame I love you but…
You're successfully killing your own game and losing players because you're too stubborn to change the Mech's in a way that actually makes them fair.
Listen to the community, please :pray:

While August 14’s v10.10 Update did include some changes to the BRUTES, including a new laser sight that should warn you when one is about to open fire on your location, it still doesn’t appear to have satisfied players who believe they should be nerfed, or removed from the game entirely.
Whether they are “killing” the game like Ali-A suggests remains to be seen, but it comes as little surprise that he is the latest popular figure to express their annoyance at the developers of the battle royale title.
