Fortnite announce bizarre change to Trios Cash Cup and everyone is angry

Fortnite players are fuming due to a hotfix the Epic Games devs are implementing on July 13 that’s going to drastically change the way players approach farming and taking battles during a match.

The competition in popular battle royale has changed a lot since its release back in 2017, with players of all skill ranges finding ways to build and outwit their opponent with break-neck speeds at the drop of a hat.


But insane tactics and unbelievable counter plays are all contingent on the reserve of materials (mats) at a player’s disposal in order to amount a meaningful attack; and Epic Games might have just got rid of that.

Epic GamesIt looks like mats are going to be harder to come by in Fortnite after the change.

In a hotly contested July 13 tweet, the Fortnite devs announced that a problem in the game is going to force their hand in gutting the amount of resources players get from harvesting and eliminations.


“While addressing the material drop issue in the Trios Cash Cup,” the Fortnite devs said. “We ran into a different issue. We’ve decided to run the Trios Cash Cup with the default harvesting rate and without material drop for the rest of the weekend.”

The change comes on the day of the highly anticipated Trios Cash Tournament that will definitely have some teams scrambling to readjust their tactics in such short notice.

Due to the change in material drops, it looks like there’s going to be a lot less resources shared between a team, which could make fights a lot more tricky to maneuver through.

The Fortnite community lash out at the devs

With the change happening so close to the trios event, everyone from casual viewers to pro players chimed in on the matter to let the devs know how they’re feeling about the issue.

NRG pro ‘Benjyfishy’ was dumbfounded with the change telling the devs: “aight wtf Fortnite, too far.”

“I wouldn’t be mad but you LITERALLY pull this on us with 15 minutes till the tourney, no disabling in arena or anything help us figure out how to play it,” pro player ‘Suffs’ said. “Like how hard is it to realise u fucked up and tell us with notice so we can adapt.”


While Epic Games looks for ways to make their game as functional as possible to facilitate events like the Trios Cash Cup, it seems like the latest change isn’t being well received by the Fortnite player base.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.


Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.


To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
  • Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs (3)

  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
