It is no secret that Fortnite has had a mixed couple of months. Since Chapter 2 Season 3, quite a few content creators and pro gamers have come out to talk about various issues that plague the game. This includes top content creators like Ninja, SypherPk, Tfue and Bugha.

Apart from various in-game and server-related issues, fans have complained about a lack of content and ‘clickbait’ updates. While Chapter 2 Season 4 has solved quite a few content-related issues, other basic problems remain.

Furthermore, even if the current Marvel-themed season has solved some content-related issues, gamers are still not happy. The consensus seems to be that the Marvel superheroes do not fit in the original Fortnite storyline.

Regardless, as Fortnite celebrated its third birthday, quite a few fans took to Twitter to vent out their frustrations.

Regardless, while there are many issues that Fortnite fans are currently facing, there seem to be quite a few gamers who still support the game and who only want to see some minor changes. Some want the map to be reverted to its former glory.

The sentiment seems to be shared by some notable content creators such as SypherPK, who has in the past spoken at length about how some minor tweaks can bring Fortnite back to its former glory.
