Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani of Team SoloMid broke down how Epic Games could improve competitive rules and features in future Fortnite: Battle Royale esports competition.

Since the announcement in mid-May that Epic Games will be channeling $100 million in prize money for future Fortnite: Battle Royale esports tournaments between 2018 and 2019, everyone has been attempting to get in on the action.

Fortnite has seen an immense amount of success in the casual gaming community following its release in 2017, along with seamlessly breaking into ‘mainstream’ culture, unlike any video game before it.

While the casual community thrives, many have been attempting to bring Fortnite into the competitive realm with makeshift tournaments, however, without any official private lobbies and other factors, the competitions can typically have some issues.

Community members are still attempting to find the best way to play Battle Royale games in general in an esports setting, mainly due to the ‘randomness’ that can occur in regards to weapon drops, storm placement, and more.

When discussing the issue of Fortnite esports on Twitter, Myth, a member of the TSM professional Fortnite team, mentioned how he believes certain aspects can be implemented to keep the pace of the game fast while leading up to the final moments, and provided some possible solutions.

As of writing, it is unknown what Epic Games plans to do in order to optimize Fortnite: Battle Royale for esports competition down the road.

Information on the latest V.4.3.0 update including new additions, bug fixes, and more can be found right here.

Fortnite and Marvel have crossed paths time and time again, and it looks like their integration won’t be slowing down any time soon after Epic Games’ Creative Director Donald Mustard confirmed they have content planned for “many years.”

Fortnite is the gift that keeps on giving, even after all these years. New seasons and chapters keep it fresh by adding content and ditching other bits and pieces to mix things up.

Typically, each one introduces a new storyline complete with events, map changes, and themes. Naturally, that means players also get their hands on new skins, vehicles, weapons, and more.

Fortnite has had a series of incredible crossovers along the way too, including integrations with Batman, John Wick, Star Wars, and Stranger Things, to name a few. However, none have come close to the sheer level of epicness as Fortnite x Marvel.

Fortnite and Marvel have crossed paths many times before.

Marvel crashed its way into Fortnite back when Avengers: Infinity War released in cinemas. It happened again with Avengers: Endgame. Fortnite even found it’s way into the movie. And of course, it’s happening again right now.

It’s a mutually beneficial relationship, and one that fans of both franchises would love to see more of. Thankfully, their prayers have now been answered.

Fortnite X Marvel will happen for “many years”

Epic Games’ Creative Director Donald Mustard opened up about the crossovers between Fortnite and Marvel in the latest episode of the ‘This Week In Marvel’ podcast. He confirmed that the two worlds would collide for many years to come.

“This is just the start,” he said. “This is the start of lots of stuff we have planned for many years in this Marvel integration. Like, this is not the end. This is the beginning.”

You can listen to the full episode here. This quote and the discussion around it start at the 38:20 mark.

Donald Mustard may have said too much

Many thought the current crossover could be the last. But thankfully, Donald Mustard himself confirmed that isn’t the case, although he says he might have “dropped too many hints” in his time on the podcast.

If you listen to the whole episode, you’ll realize how passionate he is about Marvel. He’s been a long time fan for many years, and being able to integrate his favorite characters into Fortnite has been a dream come true.

What’s more, he’s proud of the fact that Fortnite has become a part of the Marvel universe as well. For example, the Fortnite x Marvel Nexus War is canon. It’s even been published as an official comic.

Either way, it doesn’t matter whether you recognize it as official or not. Fortnite x Marvel has been a smash hit, and it’s here to stay.
