Fortnite’s v10.20 update angered much of the competitive community after they found out turbo building was nerfed and they immediately got the hashtag #RevertTurboBuilding trending on Twitter.

A rather large Fortnite collaboration with Borderlands 3 was completely overshadowed by the fact turbo building was nerfed.

This patch took the time between build placements and increased it from 0.05 to 0.15, which doesn’t seem like much but it can make all the difference in a build fight and this was met with a lot of criticism.

Players are more than fed up with the direction of Season 10 as #Removethemech trended in earlier August and Epic did eventually nerf the BRUTE as a result of that.

However, they made yet another controversial change which caused fans once again to voice their displeasure on Twitter since they could no longer “crank 90s.”

Not even a day after the patch came out, #RevertTurboBuilding began trending number one in the United States.

TwitterFans are not happy about the Turbo Build nerf.

Unsurprisingly, many of the big names in Fortnite expressed their displeasure with this update and spoke up about it before the hashtag even began trending.

Both Ninja and Myth both tweeted about the nerf, with Myth going an extra step and sending out a video that demonstrates how major the changes are.

Epic Games did listen to the community when they wanted the mech nerfed the first time so the players are likely hoping for something similar to happen here.

Season 10 has arguably been the most controversial season of Fortnite and that’s saying something. Players have survived through planes, Ballers, the Infinity Blade but none of those caused the stir like this season has.

Epic Games explicitly mentioned the #Removethemech movement in a blog post so it’s almost guaranteed they have seen what’s going on already.

We’ll have to see how long Epic can stick to their guns with this much blowback from the community.


Epic Games tease more “exclusive” content coming for Fortnite Crew members

According to a brand-new leaked survey, Epic Games have been asking players what they might want to see added as a feature to the Fortnite Crew subscription service, hinting that they’re open to changing up what’s included in the future.

If you took a look at the Fortnite Crew subscription service and thought that it didn’t include enough or didn’t include much that you’d be interested in, Epic Games may be heeding those concerns.

According to Fortnite leaker ‘iFireMonkey,’ a brand-new survey sent out to Fortnite players might indicate that the developer might be open to changing up what a Fortnite Crew subscription comes with. Specifically, the survey asks players to rank what benefits would be most or least important to be added to the service.

Currently, the Fortnite Crew service includes an exclusive skin, some V-Bucks and a free battle pass.

The question itself features a wide range of choices. Some are simply new ways to purchase Fortnite Crew subscriptions, like the ability to buy the service in retail stores and multi-month options.

There are also more gameplay-centric choices, including everything from custom matchmaking options to cosmetics that show off how long you’ve had a subscription. Beyond that, there’s even a choice for a monthly physical mailer with additional rewards outside of what’s given digitally.

Despite this development, it remains to be seen if the company will actually implement any changes. While this survey might indicate that the company is, at the very least, open to adding features to the service, it’s important to remember that it’s not a guarantee that they will.

Currently, the service includes a free battle pass, an exclusive Crew pack, 1000 V-Bucks and an exclusive Member’s Only emote (at least for a limited time), so the implementation of any one of the features listed in the leaked survey would be a welcome addition, especially after its rocky start.

For any updates regarding new features in the Fortnite Crew service and Fortnite in general, keep it locked to Dexerto.
