In Fortnite: Chapter 2, Epic Games introduced forced cross-platform play for its online matches in the battle royale game mode. This change brought an immense amount of frustration to console/mobile/switch players across the globe. These players, who enjoyed the game previously to this change, now are forced to play again players on a PC who have a serious advantage competitively. They have higher frame rates, better processing systems, and the ability to move more dynamically and abuse game mechanics to the point where players on any other system simply can’t keep up. 

They have said that skill based matchmaking removes the issue with forced cross platform because the players you play against are the same skill level. However that is just clearly not the case. A console player with 1,500 wins and a PC player with 1,000 wins play the game very differently. Just look at how some of the best console professionals play against some of the best PC professionals. Most of them don’t stand a chance. 

I personally have spent countless hours playing Fortnite with many of my friends. It has strengthened many friendships and rekindled even more, however now the desire to play the game that once brought me so much joy is slowly diminishing. I spent so much time and energy practicing and working hard to get better during Chapter 1, but now I wish I could take all that time back. If I knew eventually I would be forced to play against players on a platform that gave them a significant advantage I wouldn’t have bothered spending so much time and MONEY, let’s not forget about the money, on this game. 

Think of the countless battle passes we have bought, the outfits, and the promotional cosmetic packs we have spent our hard earned money on. The gorgeous cosmetics, intense teamwork, and social aspect of the game are all things that once brought me so much joy and excitement, and now seem miserable due forced cross platform matches.
