Server issues, glitches and other content-related problems have also been talked about. Recently, various content creators had even accused Epic of releasing ‘clickbait’ updates. Regardless, Jack “CourageJD” Dunlop, who had in the past said that he has stopped playing Fortnite because he thought it had nothing new to offer, has now shed further light on his decision to quit the game.
'I wanted to love the game, but couldn't: CourageJD reveals why Fortnite is not playable anymore
On 12th October, CourageJD posted a video explaining all the reasons why he simply couldn’t continue playing Fortnite. For starters, he admitted that he wanted to ‘love the game’, but simply couldn’t. The game has become too competitive and ‘sweaty’ after the Fortnite World Cup, and is no longer fun for him to play.
Further, he explained that he loved the game earlier because he could simply relax and enjoy long gaming sessions. However, that is no longer true. CuurageJD also talked about the introduction of skill-based matchmaking, which in itself has played a huge part in driving him, and other Fortnite content creators, away.
The streamer admitted that he was no longer able to compete with other top-tier players. He said that while the overall skill levels have increased, most players that he meets due to the matchmaking system, are not conducive to good video content. As you can see below, CourageJD simply does not love the game anymore.
"It became obviously a much sweatier game. And then you add in things like skill-based matchmaking, which I think was one of the things that completely destroyed my love for the game. I think that it absolutely took away the ability to have as much fun as you once did streaming,"
