Summit1G Gives Simple Advice for Realm Royale that Could Separate it From the Competition

The newest Battle Royale game to take the world by storm is ‘Realm Royale’, a game clearly inspired by other BR games, but with it’s own unique twists.

The game has very quickly become popular after being released in its ‘alpha’ stage, after previously being known as ‘Paladins: Battlegrounds’ and was featured as a game mode in the popular game Paladins.

It is made very clear that it is in Alpha however, with a number of bugs needing fixed and tweaks to be made before the game is truly refined for a full release.

With streaming playing a significant role in the growing popularity and exposure for these kinds of games, and top streamers have been putting some serious time into Realm Royale recently.

One such streamer who has taken a particular liking to the game is former CS:GO player Jaryd “summit1g” Lazar, who is now one of the most popular streamers on Twitch.

There are some obvious issues that will no doubt be fixed in the final version of the game, but summit1g has highlighted one gameplay issue in particular which he thinks needs immediate attention.

As a third person game, Realm Royale sometimes forces players to peek round cover with their full body due to the inability to ‘shoulder swap’, as summit1g demonstrates:

In fact, summit1g explains that it is not only a problem with Realm Royale, but a number of third person shooter games which don’t offer the ability to view from over the opposite shoulder than the default (typically right).

It is a feature similarly lacking in the most popular battle royale games such as Fortnite and PUBG, and it leads to situations where one player may have an advantage if their angle allows them to peek round corners without exposing their whole character model.

Perhaps if Realm Royale can take the initiative and introduce this feature and other intuitive gameplay mechanics, they may be able to rise to the top of the pile of the ever more saturated BR genre.

Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem provided an update on the next $100k Realm Royale tournament, and teased future updates from Hi-Rez Studios.

On Monday, August 6, KEEMSTAR announced that the weekly $100k Realm Royale tournament will be ‘taking a week off,’ and will no longer take place on Thursday, August 9.

The decision stems from Hi-Rez Studio, the developer of Realm Royale, experimenting with ‘big’ in-game changes and updates in the future, according to the ‘Drama Alert’ Host.

KEEMSTAR did not mention any specific date regarding when the tournament series will be rescheduled, however, stated that it will ‘100% return.’

As of writing, the proposed changes that will potentially be coming to Realm Royale are unknown.

After the success of the ‘Friday Fortnite’ tournament series which saw major personalities, content creators, and other notable individuals from across the gaming community compete each week for a cash prize, KEEMSTAR teamed up with Hi-Rez Studios to create a similar project with Realm Royale.
