Pros Kyle 'Fortnite Professional Players Association in an effort to promote a healthy dialogue with Epic Games.
There's a lot of money up for grabs through competitive Fortnite and despite a lot of complaints from the pro scene, they still stick around for the change at a chunk of the prize pool.
It may not always seem like Epic are listening to the players who play their game the most, so the players are getting together to create a group that can create a direct line to the developers.
By providing direct feedback to the developers, the players hope they will be able to shape Fortnite into a better product competitively.
The FNPPA features eight players from the North America region and another eight from Europe, and say they will be adding to that roster in the future.
The group currently consists of the following players:
- NRG Zayt
- 100T Elevate
- FaZe Megga
- TSM ZexRow
- Ghost Bizzle
- SEN Bugha
- Liquid Cented
- CLG Leno
- NRG Benjyfishy
- E11 Boyer
- LZR Rojo
- Cooler Aqua
- Fnatic Motor
- Solary Kinstaar
- LeStream Skite
Today, we announce the FNPPA, or the Fortnite Professional Players Association. CSGO scene with the CSPPA.

As more and more players get into competitive Fortnite, and more will considering how much money Epic pours into it, this will be a good way to get a good dialogue going.
This has the potential to be good for the game overall, but for the casual players, it probably won't make too much of a difference.
However, if you're a competitive player then you should be interested to see the direction this takes because it could directly impact the direction of the game.
We will keep you updated with what comes out of this organization going forward.
