Fortnite poll about the current state of the game provides some concerning results

Fortnite exploded in popularity during 2018 to become one of most played games in the world, but it seems that fans opinions on the battle royale franchise are souring, according to a new poll.

Epic Games continue to see massive growth from Fortnite Battle Royale, with Epic Games Korea CEO Sung Chul Park recently revealing that the game averages a massive 8.3 million concurrent players worldwide.

However, some decisions made by the developer have left fans unhappy, and a poll carried out by Team SoloMid pro player Daequan ‘Daequan’ Loco suggests Fortnite players are not enjoying the current state of the game.

Fortnite Battle Royale has become a pop culture phenomenon since its release in September 2017.

The poll, posted on Sunday, November 18 asked players if “the current state of Fortnite is more or less fun” to them, with some shocking results.

At the end of the 24 hour poll, only 16% of Fortnite fans who voted said they felt like the current state of Fortnite was more fun than previous variations, with an enormous 84% stating that they felt the game had become less fun.

Fortnite fans have been voicing their frustration at the addition and subsequent removal of Glider Redeploy, a system that allowed players to pull out their glider at any time and float around which caused a split in opinions amongst the community.

The introduction of the new Mounted Turret item has also infuriated fans of the title, with pro players like 100 Thieves member Parallax calling for the item to be removed from the game and placed in the vault due to it’s incredible power, and the difficulty players have shooting enemies who are using it.

Due to the poll being created on an open platform like Twitter, there’s no way to verify that those who voted are actually people who play Fortnite, but it still provides a fascinating insight into opinions on the current state of the game.

The National Football League and Epic Games have announced a continuation in their partnership, which is allowing for a slew of new NFL-themed skins in the mega-popular battle royale game Fortnite within the next few days. 

NFL skins in Fortnite are nothing new. Back in 2018, a slew of skins based on NFL football teams made their way into the game, much to the excitement of fans of the sport.

Unfortunately, while the skins returned to the Item Shop in early 2020 due to the Super Bowl, they never really gained notoriety, with the only exception being when Epic gave players a free refund for the skins after the Washington Football Team’s name and logo was changed a few months back.

Despite this, it seems like more NFL skins are on the way.

The new NFL skins will feature a redesigned look compared to their old versions.

The two mega companies have recently announced that they will be “extending” their partnership to allow for more NFL skins in Fortnite. According to a joint press release from both companies, the new skins will be completely redesigned from their previous looks and will have a “more athletic” and “aerodynamic look and feel”.

This new selection of skins will be called the Gridiron Gang Outfits and will represent all 32 NFL teams in both the AFC and NFC.

In addition to the newly redesigned skins, fans will also have a chance to get their hands on a brand new Back Bling for their NFL skins, named Logo-a-go-go. While the name’s a bit of a tongue-twister, these new items are basically just the logo for the team you want to represent stuck onto the back of your character.

Release Date and Time

According to the company, the skins and back bling will be added to the Fortnite Item Shop in just a few days, on November 25. Like every other item added to the in-game store, it should appear when the store gets updated that day.

Currently, the big unknown is how long the items will be in the shop for. Surely, they’ll only be available for a limited time, however, the exact time frame is unclear. It could be in their for as short as a day or maybe a bit longer.

Chances are though that Epic will give fans a few days to get their hands on it before pulling it from the store. Regardless, NFL fans should be ready to grab these items if they want it because with Fortnite, you never know when they’ll come back.
