Summit1g criticizes Fortnite pros complaining about the BRUTE mech

Fortnite players have been complaining about the B.R.U.T.E. mechs since the beginning of Season X, but former CS:GO pro turned Twitch star Jaryd ‘summit1g‘ Lazar has a simple suggestion for them.

The competitive Fortnite scene has been in a state of disarray for the majority of Season 10 thanks to the mechs.

These mechs give pretty much anyone a chance to win a game, a fact that doesn’t sit well with pro players since relative newbies could wipe out a pro without much of a challenge.

Summit1g - TwitchSummit has something to say to Fortnite players.

Epic Games explains how the mechs were added in for players to essentially level the playing field, but players did not agree with that sentiment.

Summit, on the other hand, thinks the players should just stop their complaining altogether and instead focus on what sets Fortnite apart from other battle royales – building.

“I see all these Fortnite players complaining about mechs,” he tweeted on August 16. “lol just build.”

Telling players to “just build” has become a meme in the community when players complain about certain mechanics. Players have said it time and time again to players who couldn’t adapt to the meta, such as when Ballers and planes reigned supreme.

It’s a comical way to avoid the major problems in the game by just downplaying and making light of it.

Epic Games believes the mech has a place in Fortnite while the majority of the pro community flat out disagree with that.

Summit, who doesn’t play Fortnite, seems like he enjoys watching the community turn on the game they love by tearing it down. Some people really do like to watch the world burn.

Epic GamesBrutes have created a lot of controversy.

If this criticism keeps up, and it looks like it will, it’s hard to imagine Epic Games standing their ground on the mech. 

Once enough of the pros stop playing, Epic will be left with little choice but to abandon the mech experiment.


Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
