TSM’s Myth shares the two ways that Fortnite can be “saved”

Captain of Team SoloMid’s professional Fortnite team, Myth, has come up with the two in-game changes needed to be made in order to “save” Fortnite Battle Royale.

Over the past few weeks, Epic Games have added, removed, and adjusted things in Fortnite that have fundamentally changed how the game is played. 

Several of those major changes have come under scrutiny from the game’s vast player-base, including the likes of the X-4 Stormwing plane and Infinity Blade sword item.

While the Infinity Blade has since been vaulted, the Stormwings continue to wreak havoc on the Fortnite map, much to the chagrin of many players. 

Despite the fact that Epic have made significant efforts to nerf the planes’ effectiveness, Myth believes that only their complete removal will take Fortnite back to the peaks of its playability. 

Vaulting planes would only be half of the plan, however, as Myth also mentioned that implementing glider redeploy for Quadcrashers would also be a significant step towards “saving” the game.

Glider redeploy, of course, was a very popular mechanic added and subsequently removed from the default modes of Fortnite that allowed players to activate their glider anytime they fell from a height that was over 10 meters.

While Myth knows that the complete return of glider redeploy is highly unlikely, he apparently feels that at least adding it for players jumping off Quadcrashers would help balance out the game. 

Despite its apparent popularity, the glider redeploy mechanic was removed from Fortnite shortly after being added, due to being “unbalanced.”

Interestingly enough, although the removal of planes has been called for by many in the community, adding glider redeploy for Quadcrashers seems to be a much more novel and original idea.

We will have to wait and see if either one or both of these ideas will ever come into fruition, and if they do, whether they’ll significantly help “save” the game. 


Tfue teases Fortnite return after huge Season 5 update

Fortnite Battle Royale’s Season 5 update might well have tempted Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney into returning to the battle royale, after the creator dropped a big teaser on social media. 

Epic Games rolled out a bumper new patch on December 2, following the huge Galactus event to seal the end for Season 4. Since that time, we have discovered major changes in the game — including new online quests to replace challenges, Mythic Items, and a new currency called Gold Bars.

With the majority of the community excited about those changes, things might be about to get ever better — as Tfue has hinted at an incoming stream on the game.

You know what that means… It could finally sneak back onto his daily Twitch schedule — or not!

Tfue Fortnite stream?

On December 2, the former Fortnite esports star — who even competed in the World Cup — has set out the terms fans need to follow to get him back playing. It’s quite simple, too.

He tweeted: “Use code “Tfue” and I’ll stream Fortnite tomorrow.”

Whether or not the player will be looking to stream it for hours on end, or just a brief period of time, remains to be seen. One thing is for sure, though, the new patch certainly is jam-packed with new content to work through.

In October, the streamer revealed two years was too much for him to stick to one game. He said: “Two years of cranking 90s was just too much. I had to spice it up and play other things. Plus, I felt like I milked the game so much that, like, me playing it was almost digging myself into a pit.”

Fortnite’s latest update is very much up and running now though, with a number of further changes are expected. New loot bosses are expected to drop alongside The Mandalorian at different locations throughout the season, which will keep the majority of people occupied.

Will Tfue be part of that? We’ll have to wait and see.
