I've played a few times on PS4. It's similar to H1Z1 if you've played it.

My son and I have played if a few times. It is okay - not too enamored with it. I can get knocked out in the first 10 or survive until the top 10 so my lack of skill doesn't seem to have much impact. Seems like it is 95 posers every game and 5 hardcore people with the hardcore people winning every time.

Learn to collect resources & build/strategize if you wanna get better.

Landing in a lucky spot for loot helps too.

I finally gave in and downloaded it the other night. I am having fun with it, primarily because it is something new. I am not a big fan of the building aspect, but I understand that is what separates the good from the bad players. It is a good distraction when COD WWII gets boring.

Been playing a lot of PUBG on Xbox. Same concept just more realistic and no building.

My PUBG friends and I have been playing some fortnite lately. It seems to be less of a commitment to play a game. I'm not a huge fan of the building aspect, and don't like that you can't aim down sights. It's also really odd that every gun is hit scan except snipers. Feel like you should go all or nothing, though the snipers being hit scan probably would be pretty OP.

Default Re: Fortnite

I feel like playing on PS4 or console in general is a huge disadvantage unless you connect with a mouse and keyboard. EPIC doesn't support button mapping on controller so its really hard to build especially in the middle of gun fights. I think that is the only big drawback about this game for me. Ideally, I want to map the building to my paddles instead of having to press circle and then cycle through everything.


or it could be that I've watched Ninja too much and think I can do some of the stuff he does. That dude is ridiculous.

I am starting to have more fun playing Duos than Squads right now because it seems easier to be able to control the gun fights. Squads can get hectic, especially when you have 2 other squads involved in a fight, but the social aspect of Squads is always fun. There is always that one friend who will blow it so it is fun to pick on them, even if I'm the one who blows it.

My boy switched from full time Minecraft nut (with mods - on PC) to a Fortnite one over the past month or two. He's really good, already has to 20 wins spread among the 3 game types...most are solo or duo as he says squad is too hard unless everyone is mic'd up because someone always rushes in, gives away their position by collecting wood/brick/metal when they need to be stealthy, etc etc etc etc.

I grew up on console so it's been a serious adjustment to get used to keyboard but I can tell that it's a serious advantage if you can learn it...just turning around 180 degrees is 10x faster it seems with a mouse than controller stick, not to mention building and switching hot keys.

Fun game but wish the map was a little bigger so you aren't pretty much forced to land with several other players. For me, this results in a situation that is first one to find a gun wins so I've resorted to going out of my way to land somewhere as far from the bus path as possible just to give myself a chance to gear up and get enough resources to build with. Even doing this, I get shot up in the first few seconds more often than not. But I usually finish top 10 in solo if I can gear up and get hot keys set with a couple hundred wood/brick/steel to build with.

The way my boy builds though....I fully realize my chances of winning the Battle Royale is about as good as USC hoops making the Final Four again this year.

I'm very late to this game, I thought it looked cheesy and dumb, but after playing it for the past 3 weeks I've kind of fallen in love with it. I've only won 2 solos and 2 duos but I'm usually in the top 3-5 most games. I still struggle a lot with the building aspect but man it's such a good feeling when you finally come out with the W!

Building is KEY in Fortnite. Learn to build quickly/efficiently and the wins will come.

Your post implies that it's the gaming industry's fault that people don't have self control. It's that guy's fault his life went to hell. The gaming industry didn't "steal" anything.
