With so many people returning all at the same time, the question is why?

A video uploaded by The Fortnite Guy on YouTube compiled reactions from all these streamers that recently returned to the game. Moreover, it also features a Reddit post that could be the possible explanation behind the return of these players.

Problems with Warzone send players back to Fortnite

Players jumped ship to Warzone due to various problems with Epic’s BR game. However, after a few months of gameplay, these players realized that Warzone has similar problems. The SBMM in Warzone is cranked all the way up, which is making it impossible for high skilled players, especially streamers, to play the game casually.

Apart from this, Warzone has a hacker problem. While Infinity Ward hands out manual bans, they still haven’t figured out a more efficient solution. Whether it is a casual stream or tournaments, cheaters are everywhere. Finally, after months of grinding a single game, it gets stale after a while.

Therefore, all these players had to add another game into their rotations. For them, a return to Fortnite seemed like the best option. With all the tournaments lined up in the game as well as the FNCS, there is a lot to earn for these players. Therefore, this is the best time for players to come back to Fortnite.
