Reddit’s suggestion for a better way to display materials in Fortnite is pretty great

This community suggestion from Reddit’s /r/FortniteBR could make picking up materials much easier in game.

Right now, every bunch of materials looks the exact same, whether it is 30 wood or 500 wood.

Similar to how old-school Runescape used to change the pile of gold depending on how much was in it, Fortnite could have three or four different designs that give the player an idea if the stack is worth going for.

Proposed by /u/Shelim, this concept would make it easier to judge whether or not to enter the storm for materials, or even just if someone killed a ways away is worth looting.

Plus Epic could have some fun with the different designs, making them more unique than just larger bundles of the same material design.

Suggestion: Different icons for material stacks that are > 100 from r/FortNiteBR

One Reddit user proposed large amounts of wood becoming pallets and another proposed that drops over 500 materials would take the shape of llamas made out of the material.

Of course, not everyone was in support of this idea. One user said, “the game doesn’t need to give you every answer,” and another said they enjoyed the risk in having to choose whether or not to attempt a looting.

Epic has put community suggestions into the game before, and this is certainly a popular one, as it leads the subreddit with a score over 6,000 as of writing.


Fortnite World Cup winner Aqua banned from FNCS by Epic Games

Fortnite World Cup champion David ‘aqua’ Wang has been banned by Epic Games, following controversy over alleged stream sniping against FNCS opponents.

Aqua’s trio (with Rezon and Noahreyli) have been participating in FNCS Europe and, following the Week 3 semis, were 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.

Aqua banned by Epic Games

On October 25, aqua confirmed that his account had been banned from competitive, with Epic Games simply providing the reason as “other.”

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

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 simply joked about the incident.


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.

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