Considering that we are less than halfway through Season 7, the jury is still out on where exactly it will rank in terms of best or worst seasons in Fortnite Battle Royale.
This season has added, removed, and adjusted a lot of things in the game and some of the changes have been positively received while others not so much.
One player who is a firm believer in Season 7’s potential is prominent Fortnite streamer Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop, who believes that Epic Games are just one more change away from actually making this season’s meta the best in the game’s history.
He contends that the biggest obstacle to making Season 7 a lasting success is the X-4 Stormwing plane, which was introduced at the start of the season on December 6.
“I TRULY, in my heart, believe that if planes are fixed then the meta in Season 7 of Fortnite is the 100% best we’ve had yet,” he tweeted, “ARs are good, SMGs are good, shotguns are good. Sword is long gone. Maybe tweak stack count of Dynamite. Fix the planes equals beautiful meta.”
The X-4 Stormwing has certainly been a polarizing addition and Epic have even had to make several nerfs to it over the past few weeks because the planes were too overpowered.
Many, like CouRage, believe that the Stormwing should suffer the same fate that the highly controversial Infinity Blade sword item was subjected to, which is to vault it for the foreseeable future.
“It’s December 27th, 2018. I’ve finally had enough of the planes in Fortnite,” CouRage went on to say. “It’s laughable that they can still fly direct through builds and launch you 500 feet with zero repercussion for the pilot/passenger. It’s the least competitive addition to Fortnite yet. Please Epic fix it.”

Judging by past history, it’s hard to tell whether Epic will ultimately rid the planes from the default core modes of Fortnite or just continue to nerf them until the naysayers are content.
While the Infinity Blade was vaulted after days of relentless backlash, the same feedback was given for the Mounted Turret, but the developers just kept nerfing it and left it in the game.
