The Storm King LTM is something completely new to Fortnite Battle Royale. Fans have been complaining that it’s too difficult, which has pushed Epic to nerf the boss.

The Storm King LTM is a brand new concept in Fortnite Battle Royale. It’s essentially a raid, where you group up with players to take on a big boss and his mobs.

The LTM is one of the more unique concepts Epic has added to Fortnite, even if it was taken from the Save the World version of the game. Fortnite fans have been grinding matches to try to defeat the Storm King and win themselves the elusive umbrella.

A lot of players enjoy the challenge, but others have been complaining that the mode is too hard. The community is split on this one. Those who can find good teammates seem to love the Storm King LTM, while others feel like they’re trying to carry their team through a PvE mode.

As someone who has played this mode upwards of ten times without winning, I can attest to the difficulty. Random teammates don’t seem to understand the mechanics of the Storm King and end up dying. I’ve been left in the mode by myself at least three times, which felt insurmountable.

Epic heard the complaints of the community and decided to nerf the Storm King. They reduced the damage threshold in every area: weak points, horn HP, total HP, etc.

The new Storm King HP will help people get through the mode quicker, but is that a good thing? Some would argue that it isn’t.

Epic implemented a hotfix for the damage, so the change should be live now. I loaded in to test it and lost. Again.

I see both sides of the argument on this one. Yes, the mode should be challenging. It should be rewarding to complete. At the same time, I just want the umbrella and am about done grinding a PvE mode in a PvP game.

What do you guys think? Was the Storm King too hard? Have you beaten it already? Let us know in the comments.
