    Honestly the biggest issue with #fortnite redeploy is the game wasnt designed for it. The map is 2 small for the amount of mobility it + everything else gives. They shouldve tried nerfing free falling and all that BEFORE. Or just unvault bouncers and make launch pads more common

    @FortniteGame Get rid of the ******* thing! I don’t understand why you keep adding such horrible items to the game. Slow down, fix the bugs, simplify things! This game has gotten progressively worse with each update and it really saddens me because I absolutely love the game! This just sucks.

    @FortniteGame why when we add people on Epic it says they are offline and forces a restart.... these are the small things that when done 4-5+ times a day get really repetitive. Fix the small stuff before adding all this nonsense please. -Concerned Player

    Guys stop saying already “Fortnite needs to vault ASAP the turret because is to OP” stop the crying already, the problem is not the game, the problem is that you guys don’t like the changes Fortnite do to the game, you guys don’t like to move from comfortable zone #Fortnite

    @clerkie The game had a lot of issues, players were asking for more than they were worth, I mean the list goes on... Even Fortnite players are seriously overpaid imo.

    RoughRider (@ARoughRider) reported

    The current state of Fortnite is broken. Yeah we got OG music, sure. But that's it. We haven't gotten double pump, and instead of fixing the spam issue, we have added something to it by adding this stupid turret. I'm sick of playing this game if all that is what kids want to do.

  • north_beast
    Dan Femia (@north_beast) reported

    @RLewisReports Well, I don't think H1Z1 got popular on the "back" of Fortnite. It was popular, before Fortnite and due to multiple combat changes, ping related issues and changing of the map etc the game lost all of it's traction.

    If @FortniteGame and @EpicGames Cares about there player base they would remove the mounted turret from Battle Royale because a lot of the community hates from how dumb and broken the turret is in the game.

    @eritchey19 @FortniteGame The problem with re-deploy is 3rd parties and escaping fights. If you want to escape a fight then you should have a launch pad. Also, to prevent getting shot down from a build fight you can launch pad or bouncers (if they add them back) or my idea with balloons

    @MrMuselk @FortniteGame This still has the problem where a lot of people don’t have launch pads, so it’s just another rng mobility item.
