Fortnite has always been a game that’s very friendly for new players and players who don’t play games a lot. Some praise it for this, others criticize it. However, recently, the topic of whether the game is too “noob-friendly” has migrated from players who blindly hate the game from the outside, to the game’s core community.

If you played Fortnite in its first couple of seasons, the gap between a below average player and a top player wasn’t astronomical, especially compared to some other competitive games. However, with recent seasons, the gap has begun to expand, and as a result some think Epic Games is now toying with the game to close that gap and make it more friendly to the biggest portion of its playerbase, which is casual players. And as you would expect, some players don’t like this, and believe Epic Games is ruining the game in its pursuit of leveling the playing field.
