ive enjoyed dropping tilted town and working on shotgun aim. great for adjusting your speeds and what not. I was hitting a lot more shots last night in squads after landing there an hour straight in solos.

Click this if you want to read some bull shite excuses from the Fortnite dev team. They’ve finally crossed that line where they care more about the game than the users who play it.

Minecraft surpasses Fortnite.. look at that decline

I agree with the part about Fortnites philosophy. A game where anyone can win regardless of skill level. Imo that's what Fortnite should be and thats kind of just how battle royales are. However I dont think the mech is the answer for an equalizer(too strong) and I dont think there ever will be one. I think they're just overly concerned with retaining casually bad players. Theres also the strong possibility they strategically do these things on purpose because they're benefitting from it either way.

You should not be able to beat the top players period.

I dont disagree with that and in most cases that's how I would prefer it. But I just dont think that's what Fortnite initially was or going to be. Not in the first 5 years at least.

Agreed, but you should be able to avoid them in different modes.

as is, the noobs still get destroyed in regular lobbies because there's not enough incentive for the top players to stay in arena.

also, theres no fricking 4 man arena, which would solve a lot of this.

I don't mind a bad player beating a good one occasionally. It's the nature of BR games. However being able to completely dominate a top player because a robot spawned by you is crazy and has made me not even wanna play lol.

Constantly looking for a fourth for squad matches or a partner in general for every mode. Everyone that usually tries to squad up at random times (collective group of about 7 people) has 350+ wins. If anyone in here would be about playing/putting their name in the pool to choose from when we’re looking to catch some wins, shoot me a message or something. We play daily.

Gotta love when the guy in the brute has high ground in top 10 of a solo match, may as well just back out at that point

The GroupMe group has been great for me. I actually get to play with other adults and I enjoy the company. I like helping with challenges because I usually do pretty well with those.

I like playing with the kids too... I have a 10 year old son that plays with us also. Several of the guys in the group have kids that play from time to time. The kids are better than most of the Dads... hahaha.

re: Fortnite Battle Royale Out For Free (PS4, XB1, PC)
Brutes have finally been nerfed!
quote:

B.R.U.T.E.

Decreased the maximum amount of rockets fired by the B.R.U.T.E. in a single charge from 10 to 6.

Decreased the rate at which the rockets are fired from the B.R.U.T.E. by 56%.

Our goal with these changes is to increase the back and forth between the users of the B.R.U.T.E. and the players they face. These changes allow the players on the receiving end of the missile volley to have more time to react and protect themselves.

Decreased the radius of the B.R.U.T.E.’s rocket explosion by 42%.

Our goal with this change is to improve consistency and understanding around focused barrages of missiles. B.R.U.T.E.s will continue to be a strong option against structures, but less lethal against players.

Increased the dash cooldown from 3 seconds to 5 seconds.

The previous dash cooldown not only increased the B.R.U.T.E.’s mobility, but also made the B.R.U.T.E.s a harder target to hit from distance than we’d like. The adjustment here reduces the ability to close gaps quickly while in the B.R.U.T.E. while also increasing the ability to land shots on target for players facing the B.R.U.T.E.

Decreased the velocity gained from boosting while in air by 33%.

We want to reduce a B.R.U.T.E.’s ability to engage and disengage at long distances to encourage a more strategic approach to an encounter. In general we hope to shift B.R.U.T.E.s away from being highly mobile and put more emphasis on their already defensive nature.

The B.R.U.T.E. no longer grants materials to the driver and passenger when stomping or dashing through the environment.

Note: This change should roll out shortly following the other changes.

Our goal is to add more tension between being in and out of a B.R.U.T.E. as well as reduce instances where players can farm faster than intended without exposing themselves to danger.

Adjusted the variability of spawn rates for storm phases 1, 2, and 3 in core modes. Arena spawn rates will remain unchanged.

Storm phase 1

New spawn rates

29% chance to spawn 0.

14.3% chance to spawn 1.

14.3% chance to spawn 2.

14.3% chance to spawn 3.

14.3% chance to spawn 4.

14.3% chance to spawn 5.

Old spawn rates

33% chance to spawn 2.

33% chance to spawn 3.

33% chance to spawn 4.

Storm phase 2

New spawn rates

25% chance to spawn 0.

25% chance to spawn 1.

25% chance to spawn 2.

25% chance to spawn 3.

Old spawn rates

33% chance to spawn 2.

33% chance to spawn 3.

33% chance to spawn 4.

Storm phase 3

New spawn rates

25% chance to spawn 0.

25% chance to spawn 1.

25% chance to spawn 2.

25% chance to spawn 3.

Old spawn rates

33% chance to spawn 1.

33% chance to spawn 2.

33% chance to spawn 3.

Previously, the early stages of a match were guaranteed a minimum amount of B.R.U.T.E.s. We’d like to provide a little more variance to that experience so that matches don’t always play out the same way. The overall average number of B.R.U.T.E.s per game is reduced slightly.

Decreased the material cost of using the gunner’s overshield from 200 to 75.

Our goal is to further emphasize use of materials for positive defensive benefit.

Increased the Health of the B.R.U.T.E from 1000 to 1250.

With the above changes, users of the B.R.U.T.E. need to play a bit more strategic than before, so we want to give a little bit longer of a window to do so.

Pretty big patch today. Mechs are now visible on the map at all times. Turbo build has been reduced, and they vaulted the drum gun again lol. Also a collab with Borderlands.
