Competitive Fortnite gamers are dying for a separate loot pool. Here’s the actual motive that can by no means occur.
We’re by no means going to get a separate loot pool for aggressive Fortnite.
As a participant base, we have recognized this for some time however have nonetheless been holding out hope for Epic to vary their thoughts.
Earlier right this moment, July 12, Epic introduced that they eliminated the Storm Flip from Arena Trios, giving us yet one more glimmer of hope aggressive loot pool is likely to be coming.
Alas, we’ll seemingly by no means get there. Here’s the convoluted reply to why we can’t get them from a aggressive AMA in May:
“Having the identical core battle royale recreation performed by gamers of all ability ranges is wholesome for the general state of the sport and retains competitors open, approachable, and for each gamers and viewers.
We goal at one recreation, nevertheless we sometimes make exceptions (similar to Siphon), however our threshold for branching core gameplay could be very excessive. It’s as much as us to seek out new instructions for stability that reward gamers at each ability stage, whereas not creating damaging experiences for various teams. Even as Epic focuses on competitions the place all are welcome to play in acquainted methods, we’ll even be persevering with so as to add instruments that can enable gamers to customise their expertise to suit their private preferences and the best way they’d most prefer to play.”
This clarification wasn’t what Fortnite gamers had been on the lookout for, and appeared to confuse the problem much more. It’s unimaginable to stability a recreation like Fortnite whereas contemplating high and bottom-level play. The Storm Flip is an ideal instance of this.
Reddit person Heavyboss posted one other clarification from a member of the Fortnite workforce, although.
This reply makes Epic’s reasoning a bit extra comprehensible. Unfortunately, which means there’s even much less hope that we’ll ever see a separate aggressive Fortnite loot pool.
This is why theres no separate loot pool from r/FortniteCompetitive
Epic needs low-level gamers to see high-level gamers utilizing the identical recreation mechanics that the previous group experiences in their very own video games. High-level aggressive Fortnite and public Fortnite could not be extra totally different, however Epic needs the frameworks of the 2 modes to be the identical.
As lengthy as this mentality is current, we’ll by no means get separate loot swimming pools. We can dream that Epic will finally change their thoughts, but it surely’s unlikely.
