Epic Games have dug their heels in and won’t budge on their stance for defending the B.R.U.T.E, but now with both the casual and competitive players up in arms, do you think they will change their minds, or will they cling dearly to their philosophy that it is a ‘fun experience for all‘?
“Another part of the mission is to provide spectacle and entertainment when playing Fortnite. Bringing these moments to the game every week means there is always a new way to enjoy and experience the game.”
