Since update v10.40 in Fortnite, players have been forced to confirm they want to leave their edits, which puts them at a disadvantage and they aren’t happy.
Lobbies are opened up across all platforms in Fortnite now meaning Switch, mobile, Xbox One, PS4, and PC players are all playing together.
Skill-based matchmaking has been implemented but controller players now have a new disadvantage that they are up in arms about.
With controller players having a perceiving disadvantage, having an extra step to leave editing makes the gap even larger and players are complaining.
In a post to the subreddit r/FortniteCompetitive, players have called the change “super frustrating” and want this change to be reverted.
The post has over 1000 upvotes along with two Gold awards, so it’s clear there’s a good chunk of players who have the same issue.

Some players have noted they weren’t even aware of the change as they use the “Switch Mode” button as a way to switch back and forth so they don’t need to confirm anything.
Either way, it’s still an annoying process that only affects controller players. If you’re using a keyboard, you’ll be able to bind all of your keys so you aren’t limited by buttons and don’t have to run into issues like this.
If enough players express their displeasure with this switch, Epic Games won’t have any choice but to address it head on.
Epic Games have shown a willingness to stand their ground in the face of controversy, as they managed to keep the mechs in for the entirety of Season 10, despite the constant backlash from streamers and pros alike.
Fortnite Season 10 wraps up on October 13 and we’re likely looking at Season 11 beginning soon after, so we’ll see what Epic have in store for this controller change going forward.
