SypherPK Thinks Smart Builds are for AI players in Fortnite

The 25-year-old streamer thinks this upcoming mechanic might not make it into the game. He believes the studio is simply trying to reinforce AI players and their ability to create builds amidst a fight. It would not be a great move to add such things into the main game, as advanced tier builds should never become easy to create. This will allow the new players to close the gap, while seasoned veterans will find a way to abuse it.

It could create a major disruption within the game that can kill the entire building mechanic and gameplay. It does not seem like Smart Builds are being aimed for the main game or for the human players. The studio might add it into creative mode, allowing players to create builds and other things rather easily.

The addition of turbo builds in the game caused a lot of problems a few years ago. It allowed players to build at a much faster pace and it also became a major talking point. The backlash was so bad that even the minor nerf to the new feature didn’t satisfy the community. The studio had to make a choice, and it decided to revert the entire patch on the community’s demand. It seems like the upcoming Smart Build could also pose a similar problem for Epic Games.

What do you think about this news? Do you think Smart Builds will help attract new players? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
