“The mission of Fortnite is to bring players of all ability levels with each other to have a enjoyable practical experience exactly where any one can win,” the group wrote in a weblog post. A further aspect of Fortnite’s mission is to “deliver spectacle and entertainment when playing.” Therefore the selection to add the mechs.
Due to the fact the mechs arrived, Epic mentioned players who have struggled to choose up eliminations claiming a lot more of them, when a lot more skilled players are acquiring about the exact same quantity of kills. That suggests the mechs are functioning as it intended.
Nevertheless, the explanation wasn’t totally satisfying for every person. Some questioned the actual influence of the B.R.U.T.E. provided the mech can destroy structures players constructed with ease. Other folks wondered about the correct nature of the kill stats.
Why never you show us the % builds broken// Material wasted // Harm dealt to players when employed per BRUTE? 🤡

Do your stats consist of the eliminations exactly where your group gets obliterated down to much less than 50 wellness by a mech then some idiot jumps out and mini guns you?

I never feel the quantity of kills they are acquiring is the problem, it is HOW they get them. There is no way to play against 1 that fires ten missiles at you more than and more than once again. The initially five destroy the builds, the subsequent five destroy the player.

Epic’s reasoning behind the mechs is understandable, at least on the surface. Fortnite has a lot more than 250 million players it is attempting to maintain hooked, and not every person has the ability to nail a headshot from across the map unless they get immensely fortunate.
But locating a balance to maintain Fortnite enjoyable and edifying for every person — from casual gamers whose aim may well not be wonderful to prime-tier players and their Twitch or Mixer viewers — with a relatively level playing field is a challenging ask. It’ll require to tweak the mechs additional ahead of a lot more players will embrace them.
