The development studio behind Fortnite Battle Royale has not been getting a lot of positive comments from players due to different in-game changes, and FaZe Clan’s Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore is the latest to jump on the wagon.
Most few decisions were made right before the start of the Fortnite Online Opens, which is the online qualifier for the Fortnite World Cup held from July 26-28 in New York.
Epic Games decided to limit competitive players to using native resolution about a week before qualifiers began on April 13.
A workaround for competitive in-game resolution
Players were able to find an exploit through Fortnite’s in-game files which would allow players to change their resolution.
FaZe Cloak applied the exploit and was able to get Fortnite to run at 1920p.
“It looks great, and it’s 1920!” Cloak exclaimed to his stream on April 19.
Unfortunately, the exploit was patched within 30 minutes which caused Cloak to go into a rant to his stream:
FaZe’s Fortnite pro leaned close to the microphone and said, “This was fixed in 30 minutes. How is that [resolution exploit] fixed in 30 minutes and other bugs in the game take months?!”
Epic’s slow response
Over the last few months, Epic Games has seemingly added more things to the game before bugs can be fixed.
Some players are still being affected by the trap glitch along with issues regarding in-game lag.
Mostly, players are requesting a field of view slider, which is essential for players during build battles.
With competitive play now being restricted to native, competitive Fortnite players are forced to learn the new resolution.
It seems like Epic has no plans to revert any of the previous changes, which means that players have to remain patient.
