Ali 'Myth' Kabbani has been a part of the Fortnite scene pretty much since its launch and now he is looking for new ways to push the game forward.
Pro TSM Fortnite player Myth was one of the first players to make a name for himself in Fortnite.
While he isn't the biggest name anymore in the esports side of things for Fortnite, he's still a popular streamer in his own right.
On March 22 Myth created a mini-thread of tweets about ideas he has for a battle royale, whether it's Fortnite or something new entirely.
His idea focused on finding a way to make a battle royale as exciting as they become in the mid-to-late game when the action gets frantic and there is more fight since the players are in such close proximity.
Do you guys think its possible for a game to emulate the fast paced intense action that fortnite BR late games provide without the early and mid game or BR's??— Myth (@TSM_Myth) March 22, 2019
I've been theory crafting some stuff but im interested to hear yalls thoughts.
It seems like the part of Fortnite and other battle royales Myth enjoys the most is the part where all the looting is done and the fighting has begun.
He wants to make a game that would emulate the mid-to-late game where players are all geared up and ready to go for the victory.
In the pro scene, this is easily the most exciting part to watch since that is when all of the action takes place, especially in Fortnite where the players play much slower than usual.
It's hard to envision a battle royale like that unless players just start with loot because a big part of BRs is that early-game looting that sets you up for the end game.
This is definitely an interesting idea because it's easy to see how the beginning of a match is the most boring part of a round.
This is a rough concept but I think when the tools are available to create such a thing I would love to try it out. pic.twitter.com/YCnkzvwvxD— Myth (@TSM_Myth) March 22, 2019
Myth also thinks a 'Zone War' game mode would work quite well in Fortnite and even thinks it'll be a big part of Fortnite's future.
This would be a mode that would greatly speed up the pace of game and instead of being a battle royale it'd instead be team deathmatch.
Your structures would disappear quickly and you'd be limited on materials from the get-go.
This mode would encourage constant action between players as there will be nothing for them to hide behind since there would be no farming or protection.
Fortnite could easily implement something like this but the real question is will they ever do it? It would certainly make for a good LTM.
