Of late, we have talked quite a bit about the stagnation Fortnite has seen over recent times. On the one hand, notable streamers and players, such as SypherPK and Ninja, have discussed some fundamental issues that plague the game.
On the other hand, the overall revenue that Fortnite generated reduced considerably from 2018 to 2019. In the former, the game generated its highest revenue so far, $2.4 billion, while this figure was reduced to around $ 1.8 billion last year. What’s more, quite a few content creators and players have complained about Epic Game’s laggy servers for some time now.
Furthermore, the Fortnite community, in particular, has voiced concerns about the lack of updates recently, while recent delays concerning some features (cars!) have further frustrated fans. And now, another notable Fortnite streamer and player has posted his issues related to the game.
Fortnite pro outrages over server lag issues
Tim 'Bizzle' Miller is an America YouTuber and Twitch streamer who used to play for the Ghost Gaming Esports Organization. In April 2020, he officially joined the FaZe Fortnite team:
He has become the latest notable Fortnite player to complain about lag in the game, posting the following tweet on 30th July.
As you can see, he complained about Fortnite, and felt that Epic has not been able to fix ‘endgame’ lag even after three years of complaints. He suggested not entirely understanding the point of the ‘test games’ that the developers have been hosting, and that the situation is worse than it has ever been.
Bizzle also did not shy away from bringing the relevant people up to date on his complaints, and tagged the official Epic Games and FNCompetitive accounts in the tweet. He asked Epic to stop focusing on tournaments, and instead improve upon this aspect first and foremost.
How did fans react?
Most Fortnite fans were quick to agree with Bizzle, and wanted Epic to solve the problems he was speaking about.
Some suggested ways in which things could be improved.
One fan posted the following, and pointedly suggested that people would soon start posting comments asking him to “stop complaining”.
While none of the fans appeared to post anything on those lines, the Twitter account of notable Fortnite leaker HYPEX posted the following in response to the original tweet.
Regardless, it is no coincidence that so many people have talked about Fortnite’s issues, and Epic Games should actually listen to fans and make the required improvements quickly.Published 31 Jul 2020, 13:07 IST
