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.

Epic GamesBRUTE mechs have been an incredibly unpopular addition to Fortnite.

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.”

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.

Tottenham Hotspur player Dele Alli has roasted England international teammate Kieran Trippier over his gaming skills, bluntly calling him “really bad” at Fortnite.

Alli has recently become a global ambassador for Excel, one of the 10 League of Legends teams in the LEC and a powerhouse of UK esports, having made clear his love of gaming in recent years with his streams on Twitch.

Dele sat down to talk about his love of gaming with Excel, discussing FIFA, Fortnite, and some of the other top footballers he’s played with — but had a few less-than-savoury thoughts on his former Spurs teammate’s abilities.

After being asked who’s “not very good at gaming,” Trippier fell immediately into the firing line.

Dele joins a growing list of footballers getting involved in the esports scene in one way or another.

With a laugh at his friend’s misfortune, Dele revealed that the former Spurs man, unfortunately, falls into that category.

“Kieran Trippier was very late to gaming” Dele said, offering his former teammate somewhat of a lifeline. Before cracking up laughing again, the star added: “He jumped on it and he’s got a lot better but, at the start…”

Dele continued: “He joined Fortnite when we had all been playing for a while, and it was the first time he had played with a controller… so if you tell him to press X, he wouldn’t know which was X.”

Not content with letting his name be slandered in the gaming world, Kieran himself quickly responded with some laughing emojis, backing himself up by clarifying that he actually “wasn’t that bad,” though it doesn’t sound great for the full back.

Now, surely, fans will be desperate to see Dele and Kieran go head-to-head with one another to see if the latter is really as bad as he sounds.
