Ghost Bizzle lists everything that’s wrong with Fortnite right now

Professional Fortnite Battle Royale player Timothy ‘Bizzle’ Miller has criticized the current state of the game, as he released his ‘wish list’ for what he thinks needs to change.

Many prominent personalities have been critical of the battle royale game of late, with criticism centering on Epic’s decision making and the bugs in the game, as we head towards this Summer’s World Cup Finals in New York City.

Ghost Bizzle has already qualified for the World Cup, and has not been afraid to vent his frustrations with Epic in the past. Now, though, he has released a list of things he wants to see change, as it reaches what could be seen as a critical point in its life span.

Epic GamesThe Proximity Launcher, added on June 13, is also on Bizzle’s removal list.

On June 13, Miller tweeted some things that he believes would ‘fix Fortnite’. He starts off by suggesting “Stinks [Stink Bombs], Rifts, Ballers, Storm Flip, Heavy Sniper, Boom Bow” should all be removed from the game. 

He is not the only prominent community member to have an issue with these items, as SypherPK recently called for the removal of the Boom Bow. Also, problems with the Heavy Sniper are not uncommon, as many argue its ability to destroy any object in one hit is perhaps too strong.

Furthermore, a few of his issues revolve around items that have been added in Season 9, such as the Storm Flip item, which was added on June 6.

He also stated that the old Bolt Action sniper rifle should be brought back – with the “old bullet drop”. Epic removed the weapon in favour of a suppressed alternative, and altered all snipers’ bullet drop to match the flatter, faster drop that the Heavy Sniper possesses.

Bizzle went on to argue that glider redeploy should be re-implemented. Epic Games have gone back and forth with this feature, currently settling on having it as a lootable item within the game, with 10 uses.

He also wants to see “Wall Replacing” fixed. This refers to aggressive players destroying an opponent’s wall and then placing one of their own, so they are able to edit it and get a shot on the defending player. He suggested, as many have, that this is merely determined by which player has the better internet, and should be more directed towards benefiting the defending player.

Bizzle’s final suggestion was to “Buff [Dusty] Divot”, which seems rather self-explanatory. Many users were quick to agree with the Ghost Gaming star, with his tweet amassing just under 4,000 likes at the time of writing.

Fortnite World Cup winner Aqua allegedly banned for FNCS stream-sniping

Fortnite World Cup champion and Season 4 FNCS competitor, David ‘aqua’ Wang has been accused of stream-sniping and subsequently been punished by an alleged ban by Epic Games.

At 17 years old, aqua represented his home country of Austria to the fullest by winning the 2019 Fortnite World Cup’s Duos event with Norway’s Emil ‘Nyhrox’ Bergquist. With a smooth $1.5 million earned from the World Cup, he’s since signed with Cooler Esport and continued to win competitions across Europe.

Most recently, aqua’s trio (with Rezon and Noahreyli) have been participating in FNCS Europe and, following the Week 3 semis, have been accused of stream-sniping another popular trio: Benjy ‘Benjyfishy’ Fish, Martin ‘MrSavage’ Andersen, and Kevin ‘LeTsHe’ Fedjuschkin.

Although fans initially deemed aqua’s behavior suspicious, things quickly escalated. With Benjyfishy’s team unable to qualify for the Week 3 finals and the discovery that aqua was watching MrSavage’s stream during the competition, the controversy has spiraled.

Following condemnations of the World Cup winner’s team, rumors began circulating that aqua, Rezon, and Noahreyli had been banned by Epic Games from participating past the first match of the Finals. 

Although many fans were delighted to hear the news, it was never officially legitimized and has since been made even more unclear by responses from some of the involved parties.

After the rumor mill buzzed with the reports that aqua’s team was banned from competing, he took to Twitter and gave a concise clarification denying those allegations: “We are not banned, we just don’t wanna play. It’s boring without early fighting Benjy.”

Given the difficulty inherent to confirming someone was in fact stream-sniping and didn’t coincidentally run into a fellow streamer, many believe it is unlikely that the World Cup winner has actually been exiled from the competition.

Additionally, some have noted that bans typically result in removal from the leaderboard, something that aqua’s team has not been hit with.

 

As for how the players are handling it, aqua and Benjyfishy have simply joked about the incident for hours. Neither side appears to be nearly as angry as some fans have been, instead, laughing at the drama and sharing memes.

 

While whatever’s going on behind the scenes may remain unclear, all players involved are more than good enough to qualify for the Season 4 FNCS Finals at some point, if they haven’t already, so it seems that no one’s really that bothered by the situation, ban or no ban.

We will continue to update this article with more details as they become available.
