Fortnite pros struggle to survive in Spellbreak

Back in 2017, Fortnite revolutionized the battle royale genre with its complex meta that included building and editing structures. To say the least, this has inspired other developers to follow a similar approach and offer much more than gunplay in their games.

Spellbreak is a perfect example of the same, as it includes several aspects such as elemental gauntlets, spells, and runes, among others. Even though LazarBeam and Fresh are two of the most skilled battle royale players, they had a tough time surviving in Spellbreak.

“Okay, maybe we’re not that great at being a wizard. Alright, we should not do a hot drop,” claimed Fresh after losing the first game in under a minute.

The strategy to not directly engage with enemies certainly helped Lazar and Fresh. However, their dream to win a game was shattered yet again by some sweaty players.

“Those guys had some special combos or something. I don’t know what they were using.”
