Fortnite tournaments are full of surprises and twists. Every time you expect something new, it will deliver. Similarly, Ninja Battles also gave us this essence of novelty. These battles are being hosted over at Mixer, which is kind of entertaining, to begin with.
Within two weeks, the tournament seems to have thrown up many harmful elements. From players leaving midway to winners getting banned due to unprofessionalism. Clix took to Twitter to voice his verdict on which mode is the best in Fortnite.
Clix left midway through the tournament due to his other commitment to the Cash Cup. While it is condoned as unacceptable, his team had to live with it. He later turned up on social media, preaching the pros of trios in Fortnite.
Ninja Battles surely had an influence on Clix. Their format just gave players the space to realize what they really want from the game. Epic is trying to bring back the old meta, and trios are spearheading this process.
As far as we can guess, the community does appreciate the effort being made by Epic Games. They are getting back to a status quo that worked for both sides, the players and the developers. “Aim assist is nerfed stop crying and start grinding or quit the game.”
“I got a 1v3 on these kids at the rig, and then they invited me and my trio shit on them (we won that game btw).”
The case remains the same, some are happy about it, and some will live with it. With all the latest changes Fortnite has been going through, is it really possible to get back? Fans had their demands even with the old map.
The old meta is something that worked for both parties. No matter how hard Epic tries to bring that back, specific gaps and edges will remain unaddressed. Clix did raise a fair point that trios is definitely much more fun. He got a lot of hate for his opinion, but that is the truth. Fortnite didn’t feel like home for a long time.
However, we have to wait and see what Epic does next. Ninja Battles are proof enough to show what the majority of the community is looking for in the game. That three-man-dynamic just has a tasty allure to it.
