Fortnite released four years ago and is still one of the biggest games in the world. Despite severe competition from Apex Legends, and Call of Duty Warzone, millions of players still play and enjoy Epic Games’ Battle Royale title.

Like any other game, Fortnite’s user-base primarily comprises casual players. On the flip side, there’s a small number of professional players who grind hard for 8-10 hours a day in order to win tournaments and make a name for themselves. Both these factions of gamers often have contrasting demands, and it is a colossal task for the developers to satisfy them.

It seems like Epic Games is facing similar troubles with the recently released Chapter 2 Season 6 of Fortnite. While casual players seem to love the pre-historic theme, pro players have actively criticized the developers for the same.

These include big names like TSM Emad, Aussie Antics, and NRG Clix, among many others.

Are the Fortnite pros overreacting?

It all started when pro player for TSM, Emad, ranted about the latest Fortnite season on Twitter. In a series of tweets, he talked about how the game is getting worse with every update, and nearing its end.

However, Emad soon realized that he’s being too harsh on the developers. He admitted that Fortnite is simply facing an inevitable downfall, and might recover from it in the near future.

Popular Fortnite content creator, AussieAntics, also opened up about Chapter 2 Season 6 on Twitter. Surprisingly, he claimed that he’s already bored with the new season, and recommended some major improvements in makeshift weapon mechanics.

Lastly, pro player for NRG Esports, Clix called Fortnite “dry”.

In contrast, 100 Thieves’ player MrSavage seems to love the new season in Fortnite.

Competitive Fortnite is way different from regular public matches. Accordingly, every minor change in the meta drastically impacts the strategies and play style of professional players. On the flip side, casual players always love new content, and have no pressure to adapt to the meta quickly.

Prominent Fortnite creator thatdenverguy talked about Chapter 2 Season 6 in a recent video.

The major bones of contention following the arrival of Chapter 2 Season 6 have been the Cuddle Fishes and the shotguns. Apparently, when combined together, Cuddle Fishes can take out entire squads. Moreover, the explosive damage of the Pump and Primal Shotguns has been troubling a lot of players.

All in all, this is just the beginning of Chapter 2 Season 6. Epic Games certainly has enough time to patch the aforementioned issues, and introduce new content that might satisfy everyone.
