Fortnite is currently in the middle of its yearly Halloween event. The spooky season is a popular time of year for the game as many players love the changes that it undergoes. The challenges, new characters, fresh skins, and map changes are always pretty popular.
However, this year has had a bit of a mixed reaction so far. While the Fortnitemares event hasn't lived up to many players' standards, others are thoroughly pleased with it.
Fortnitemares reactions: Do players like the event this year?
Others are baffled as to why certain Halloween classic items were not added and crash pads were.
One player thinks the Ash Williams NPC is the only good thing to be added this year.
A Twitter user went so far as to call this season's Halloween event trash.
One gamer doesn't think this event feels anything like Halloween.
Some players had hope, but it was eventually shattered.
Another Twitter user thinks other games have done a much better job with the Halloween season.
However, not all players have been disappointed with the gameplay this season.
Some are impressed with how good it's been.
It may not be the best Fortnitemares that has ever been released, but this gamer is thoroughly satisfied.
One thinks that Epic Games is on a hot streak.
Another was surprised by how good the event has been so far.
Most of the additions have been great, according to one looper.
However, the majority of the community is at least a little bit underwhelmed with this year's event. There is still time for Epic Games to fix that, although that is less likely since there probably won't be another update during it.
What's wrong with Fortnitemares this year?
The biggest issue with this year's event is not that Epic Games didn't put any effort into it. They have added plenty of quality things, and many of the skins are good.
Ash Williams and Knowby Cabin have been excellent additions that almost everyone has liked. The two bosses, Willow and Inkquisitor, have also been welcome additions.
There are two main issues with this season. First, the overall additions have been lacking; there just haven't been that many. The ones that were introduced to the game have been good, but they've been few and far in between.
There is an argument to be made that something went wrong since the most recent Fortnite update had more Halloween things planned that had to be scrapped last night, but it's still an issue.
The second and bigger problem is that they set a very high bar in previous seasons. There's a reason everyone was so excited for the event and it's because it is always so good.
The last several Fortnitemares have been some of the most fun the game has been in a while, so players are hoping for more of that. They haven't got it yet and believe the event is worse than it actually is as a result.
