Not on Steam.....?
This is one of the annoying points for me regarding Fortnite itself - for the moment, it is exclusively available via Epic Games proprietary launcher. Personally I think its a waste to lock in to a launcher like this, especially with relatively few titles sold directly. One of Epic's previous published titled, Shadow Complex HD, was originally only via the Epic launcher, but eventually came to Steam when someone realized it was hurting adoption. I am guessing the same thing will happen to Fortnite, but for the moment it is in somewhat of a "Founders Early Access" mode, so it may not happen until "proper" launch, sadly. I can only hope it eventually comes to Steam and those who bought the title directly will be given the chance to use the Steam version if they wish. Anything else is Epic shooting themselves in the foot, in my estimation, if they are playing the long game with Fortnite adoption.
Ive been wanting to buy PUBG but am hesitant too after all the reviews I read of players getting banned due to the streamers accusing them of cheating.. So this is a nice alternative until they figure that situation out..
Well I tried it a bit but its waaay to fast for me after beeing used to Pubg, in fortnite I'm lucky to actually live for longer then a minute and get to fire a shot, let alone hit anyone.
Takes longer to get in a match and to the ground then actual play time, or maybe I'm just crap.
Don't always land in crowded areas. Certain areas (like Tilted) tend to attract a lot of people who want fast quick action - feel free to land in a quieter area which allow you time to farm up materials/gear or practice building without being bothered by other players. Don't avoid crowded areas completely though, to improve at the game you need to get accustomed to fighting other players while building, the game has a high skill ceiling which takes a bit of time to acclimatize to.its waaay to fast for me after beeing used to Pubg, in fortnite I'm lucky to actually live for longer then a minute and get to fire a shot,
The BR is making them more than $200mil a month and growing, so it's no doubt their primary focus right now. Improvements are coming to the pve portion for sure though I wouldn't get my hopes up for it to be anytime soon.I would also like to see some major refinements to the PVE side of the game.
I remember getting 2 wins in a row over a year ago. now I'm lucky to get 2 wins a week. arena is skill based matchmaking. but those games aren't that much fun. epic has to find a way to keep the game fun for every skill level. but I don't know if thats possible when the game has a high skill ceiling.View attachment 158676
I'm a very very casual Fortnite player but Epic gave away the S8 pass for free (back when Apex was at the height of it's popularity), so played a bit more than usual this season and leveled the battle pass to level 100.
This was my first battle pass experience and it was pretty neat - you get quite a few cosmetics and skins with customizable styles for simply playing the game and doing some quirky challenges. I liked most of this season's skins, most were of high quality with decent customization options.

As for the game itself, the skill ceiling keeps growing to the point where even long term dedicated players are asking for some kind of skill based matchmaking. That Ninja vs Daequan video posted above a year ago looks amateur to the gameplay we have nowadays. One day someone will write a book about this, Epic literally 'accidentally stumbled' into the biggest game in history they threw together in a couple months after the single player went bust, and it caters perfectly to both casual and competitive gamers with a unique feature (building) that gives it it's own identity.
Epic games launcher has 2 factor authentication just as most launchers do, if you turn it on it'll prevent someone from stealing your account easily. It'll take a few matches for the sbmm to fix itself and put you back into lobbies with players around your skill level.so I think I'm being in matches vs high skill players.
