While Fortnite fans have indulged in the madness that the battle royale has produced since its launch, the game has seen a string of controversial additions - which are starting to take a toll on its pro players.
Epic Games like to keep their game fresh by adding new and inventive weapons or items that mix up the formula to varying degrees. However, many of these changes can sometimes prove to be too drastic, which throws off the balance of power in the game.
Pro players have taken to Twitter to express their continual frustration with the state of the game, as Season 7 seems to be plagued with more and more ill-fated decisions.
Fortnite has added many controversial elements since the start of its new season on December 6, such as the X-4 Stormwing plane, Boomboxes that ravaged anything in their midst, a now-vaulted Infinity Blade that was too overpowered (yet still made an appearance in the Winter Royale), and much more.
Counter Logic Gaming’s Sam ‘WishYouLuckk’ Salcedo and many others berated the game’s current form and its notable deteriorating competitive feel.
“Never had less fun in Fortnite in my life thank in Season 7,” WishYouLuckk said in a deleted tweet. “Every single patch the game gets worse. lmao. Epic followin the Gears of War and Paragon trail to the tee.”

FaZe Clan’s Dennis ‘Cloakzy’ Lepore echoed similar sentiments toward the recent changes in the game, claiming that Fortnite gets “worse and worse [with] every patch.”
Many fans argue that Fortnite has been a headache to play in recent updates, experiencing everything from overpowered weapons to severe lag when editing, which the company hopes to correct in the future.
