Despite it’s immense popularity, not every aspect of Fortnite Battle Royale is universally accepted and liked among the game’s vast player-base.

It’s in-game mechanics, weapon balancing and functionality, and other details are often at the center of discussion and debate, with many players often throwing in their suggestions, concepts, and ideas on how Fortnite can be improved.

One such players is popular streamer ‘SypherPK,’ who is considered by many to be one of the top strategic minds in the Fortnite community.

Sypher, who creates content as a member of Luminosity Gaming, has proposed several ways that the game can be improved from its current state.

Live on his stream, he broke down the details of his proposal, which is made up of three parts:

“I would lower the maximum amount of materials you can carry, I would bring that down to 600-700. But then I would increase the amount of materials you gain exponentially to where you can reach that max level faster. And then, I would make ARs, just in general, I would buff the accuracy across the board for a lot of guns. I wouldn’t completely remove ‘bloom’ because I don’t know how recoil would work in this game, and I don’t know how bullet travel would work on ARs. But I would definitely reduce bloom a little bit more. And also, I would make first shot accuracy pop out on your first show. As soon I stop moving, I should be able to stop and get that first shot accuracy, and obviously you have to wait for the reset. But like, having to wait like this, is kind of annoying.”

It seems that Sypher’s proposed plan would address more than two aspects of the game that are often debated by players, which are building and bloom.

Putting a limit on max materials would satisfy many who believe that building has become an out of control facet of the game that is overused and relied upon too much.

Meanwhile, addressing bloom will likely be well received by most in the community who continue to express displeasure at a Random Number Generator (RNG) deciding their during gunfights.

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.
