Top 5 things we want to see in the Fortnite v8.30 update

Published

on

Patch v8.20 was extremely controversial due to the siphoning removal from public matches as well as decisions made by Epic Games regarding competitive Fortnite. Here’s what we want to see change in v8.30.

Updates come at a rapid pace for Fortnite, but Epic Games has not dealt with the type of warranted negativity it is currently facing.

Epic Games has made puzzling decisions regarding the balance of the general gameplay, siphoning, and competitive supports that has left the community riled up. It’s with good reason.

Let’s take a look at what we want to change in patch v8.30. This is not a definitive list, rather just a few of the most poignant issues for Fortnite.

Siphoning Change Revert

Yeah, we had to start with this. The siphoning removal from public gamemodes has caused so much outrage from the community that Epic would be truly lost if they don’t revert.

This revert isn’t just wanted by some small portion of the community. EVERYONE wants the siphoning to return to the game. We’re talking good players, bad players, casual players, competitive players, YouTubers, streamers, the cashier from the Kroger down the street, etc.

The only real question with the siphoning revert is why Epic decided to take it away in the first place?

The community has been asking for a better distinction between competitive and casual Fortnite, but making the core worse is not the answer. Rather Epic should focus on removing/adjusting items specifically for competitive modes.

Competitive Specific Gameplay Adjustments

Fortnite World Cup
The Fortnite World Cup begins on April 13th around the world

The discussion around casual/competitive Fortnite has been steered into dead end, in part by Epic Games.

We believe that there is no reason for casual and competitive Fortnite to conflict with each other. Casual should not be affected by competitive changes and vice-versa, it’s only fair.

Beginning with v8.30, Epic Games should begin to make adjustments asked for by the competitive community. These changes should only competitive mode like Arena, Cups, and Scrims.

This way casual Fortnite can remain the way it currently is without being a detriment to the competitiveness of Fortnite as an eSport. If Epic doesn’t start doing this or something similar, pro players will eventually begin leaving the game behind as it cannot be current practiced properly.

Urgent Fixes for any Reboot Van bugs

Every feature in a massive game like Fortnite is bound to run into a bug or two after its launch. There’s nothing inherently wrong with that as long the support for fixing them is snappy.

The first Fortnite World Cup starts on April 13th, the Saturday of the v8.30 patch week.

The Reboot Vans will completely shake up the meta right before the event (an issue in itself) so it is imperative that Epic fix all known bugs for the Reboot Vans before Saturday. We know it is a tough ask, but the timing was brought on Epic by themselves.

A new Item Shop cosmetic type/category

Back-Blings were among the first additions of additional cosmetic types

It’s been awhile since Epic added an all new type of customization type to Fortnite.

Wraps and Back-Blings both have become extremely popular and increasingly more complex. We have no doubt that players would love to purchase more gear to customize their skins even further.

The main categories for gear which could be added into Fortnite in v8.30 are from among the leaks. Data-miners found that new Hats, audible taunts, and Battle Bus skins could be heading to Fortnite at some point in the future.

Our vote is for audible taunts. The simple act of sending out a little quip to nearby enemies can be such a sweet, simple joy. It would be nice way to get around the toxicity of proximity chat while having all the benefits.

Rewards for Arena Mode Progression

Arena Mode is Fortnite’s take on ranked gameplay – via Epic Games

Arena Mode has had a bumpy start in terms of the high-tier playerbase, but has quickly risen to be a popular game mode. This is due to it having a goal to reach for at all times. It always feels good to make it to Contender League or bag a few points for that Top 5.

With that said, Arena Mode doesn’t actually offer anything as reward to players save the Cup entries. Cup entries are a decent reward for high-end players, but low-tier and mid-tier players will likely never win Cups.

So, we hope Epic has sat down and talked this through as a team. The conclusion being that players should be rewarded with visible gear for their acomplishments in Arena.

Several community concepts have suggested these addition before. The rewards would show off the color and symbol of your current Arena Mode ranks. The items could include gears like Wraps, Back-Blings, Gliders, and Loading Screens.

Fortnite Chapter 3 just started, and it’s going to be a long one. Here is when Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 ends and Season 2 starts.

Fortnite Chapter 2 ended with The Island flipping over revealing an entirely new map. This marked the start of Fortnite Chapter 3 which also took players back to Season 1.

With a new Chapter, there is plenty for players to discover. On top of a new map there are new weapons, mechanics, and more. This also means that Chapter 3 Season 1 is going to be a long one.

Whether you love or hate the new season, you might be wondering when the next one will start.

When Does Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 End?

Fortnite Season 1 will end on March 22, 2022. This means the first season of the new chapter will last for more than 100 days.

There is a chance that Chapter 3 Season 1 could end on March 19 as an in-game timer indicates this as the season’s end date. Regardless, this season is going to be a long one.

When Does Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Start?

New Fortnite seasons usually start within 24 hours after the previous one ends. Players can expect Chapter 3 Season 2 to start on March 23.

That being said, there’s always a chance that Season 2 gets delayed. A series of delays happened at the start of Chapter 2 which caused Season 1 to stretch far beyond its original end date.
