Fortnite has been out for a long time, and so has the competitive side of the game. The structure of the game is inherently competitive, so the professional scene of the game (where players compete for prizes and status) has become very popular. However, in recent years it has started to get a bit stale.
TSMFTX Co1azo believes this side of the game has steadily declined over the past four seasons:
Several players agreed with Co1azo’s vision:
Others believe that everything is diminishing:
Some players are intensely frustrated with the product they are getting:
Many players have complained about Competitive over the past few seasons and they are largely unhappy with all the decisions Epic Games has made regarding this mode.
This may stem from greater discontent on the part of the entire community. With the exception of the first season, every season since Chapter 3 has been disappointing to many.
The community doesn’t like Fortnite the way they did when it was in its prime, and it’s not clear if the game will ever relive its glory days. As a result, competitive players who have a greater stake in the game keep getting frustrated.
As Co1azo said, the game should never die. It’s too big and too popular to ever really die out, at least not in the near future. However, that doesn’t mean players are happy with it.
What can Epic Games do to save Fortnite from an early death?
With many players becoming frustrated with the game, Epic Games may soon be forced to do something to save Fortnite. At one point it was the most popular and loved game played, but this is no longer the case.
Unfortunately, a return to its glory days is virtually impossible. Epic Games didn’t necessarily do anything wrong and they even used a lot of tactics to get players excited again. However, these have not yet fully succeeded.
Players often get excited by the novelty of a game. When Chapter 3 Season 1 debuted, everything was new and exciting. This eventually wore off, but the formula worked well for a few seasons.
