Popular Twitch streamer Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar has been left mindblown by the Fortnite Champion Series landing spot controversy as drama unfolded between top players Cody ‘Clix’ Conrod and Dominick ‘UnknownxArmy’ Green.

While playing in the Fortnite Champion Series solo tournament, Clix complained that he was frequently getting dropped on by Unknown, threatening both their tournament chances, after Clix danced on Unknown after eliminating him from a match.

Compromising someone else’s landing spot is usually considered poor sportsmanship in Fortnite, with players opting to pick out an opponent and go after them rather than playing the game to the best of their abilities, at a drop spot that they are used to and know well.

Although the drama encapsulated the Fortnite community, it seemingly managed to spread much further, with summit – a huge critic of Epic Games’ battle royale title – commenting on the situation.

He wasn’t the only one, but his response to the drama definitely elicited an array of interesting responses from the Fortnite community, many of whom claimed he simply didn’t know what he was talking about.

After wrapping his head around the controversy, summit tweeted about how competitive Fortnite is “so damn weird,” adding that in CS if someone is “talking sh*t” he can just roll over to their bombsite to “shut him up.”

Of course, with an entirely different esport comes a different subset of rules, be they in the rulebook itself or an established gentleman’s agreement when it comes to sportsmanship. Top Fortnite pro Jonathan “yung calculator” Weber was one of the first to respond and quickly reminded summit of this fact, saying that he loves him but to not tweet things such as that when he has “no idea of how it works.”

Obviously, as is the nature of the internet, there was a lot of vitriol in the responses to summit’s tweet, both for and against summit’s point, and he eventually wrote another tweet asking for people not to hate him “too much,” taking a dig at Dennis ‘Cloakzy’ Lepore at the same time.

Needless to say, his exposure to the competitive Fortnite scene may have ended up posing more questions than it actually answered, and, to his credit, he at least tried to learn rather than simply ignoring it.


Epic Games tease more “exclusive” content coming for Fortnite Crew members

According to a brand-new leaked survey, Epic Games have been asking players what they might want to see added as a feature to the Fortnite Crew subscription service, hinting that they’re open to changing up what’s included in the future.

If you took a look at the Fortnite Crew subscription service and thought that it didn’t include enough or didn’t include much that you’d be interested in, Epic Games may be heeding those concerns.

According to Fortnite leaker ‘iFireMonkey,’ a brand-new survey sent out to Fortnite players might indicate that the developer might be open to changing up what a Fortnite Crew subscription comes with. Specifically, the survey asks players to rank what benefits would be most or least important to be added to the service.

Epic Games
Currently, the Fortnite Crew service includes an exclusive skin, some V-Bucks and a free battle pass.

The question itself features a wide range of choices. Some are simply new ways to purchase Fortnite Crew subscriptions, like the ability to buy the service in retail stores and multi-month options.

There are also more gameplay-centric choices, including everything from custom matchmaking options to cosmetics that show off how long you’ve had a subscription. Beyond that, there’s even a choice for a monthly physical mailer with additional rewards outside of what’s given digitally.

Despite this development, it remains to be seen if the company will actually implement any changes. While this survey might indicate that the company is, at the very least, open to adding features to the service, it’s important to remember that it’s not a guarantee that they will.

Currently, the service includes a free battle pass, an exclusive Crew pack, 1000 V-Bucks and an exclusive Member’s Only emote (at least for a limited time), so the implementation of any one of the features listed in the leaked survey would be a welcome addition, especially after its rocky start.

For any updates regarding new features in the Fortnite Crew service and Fortnite in general, keep it locked to Dexerto.
