Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has followed the suit of many other Fortnite content creators and revealed the big changes that need to be made to revitalize the battle royale game.
Members of the Fortnite community have been taking to social media to express their anger with the current state of the game of late, with #RipFortnite trending on April 12 for hours on end.
Following on from that, Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan revealed a video on April 13, laying out his biggest gripes with the game in its current state, and Ninja has now revealed his take.
In a video posted to Twitter, the content creator shared Hassan’s video, explaining that it really “hit hard”.
He tweeted: “Wow, SypherPK‘s most recent video really hits hard. I love Fortnite so much and really wanna see the game thrive again and be goofy and fun in regular matches. Would really bring back the streamers and YouTubers we all miss.”
Those who watch Fortnite videos and streams on a regular basis might be saddened to see a number of big names abandon the title in recent times. Ninja has also been touched by this, with two of his previous teammates – CouRageJD and DrLupo – having quit the game.

Ninja, though, would like to see changes implemented that bring them back, proposing a major shakeup for Epic Games to consider.
In the video, he says: “I would like to see a larger-slash-goofier loot pool in regs, and in normal gameplay I feel like solos, duos and squads have gotten very serious. Bring back some more goofy, fun gameplay.
“Maybe more players in regular games. There’s always 10 or 20 people left at the end of the first circle, before it even finishes closing,” he adds, before pointing out that the map has expanded massively since we entered Chapter 2. Other BR games, of course, do have a larger player count.

Another point Ninja came onto, which is something he has mentioned continuously in his Mixer streams, is the need for more skilful weapons for competitive modes.
The streamer has previously advocated for the return of the Infantry Rifle, to counter the skill advantage controller players have been handed.
Signing off, he said: “This game has been my entire life for the last two and a half years. It’s been a lot of you guys’ lives for the last two and a half years. I would just like to see some more communication out of Epic.”
Whether or not Epic Games will act upon these calls from high profile streamers remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure, something needs to be done to bring back the content creators who are leaving the game in droves.
