So your point is that the developers made the right choice in developing the game? I dont get the negativity surounding Fortnite. Its not my cup of tea either but I still dont see why people are bashing it...

Im not being negative here, im being critical. Battle royale seems to be the future of online games and i dont like it. Pubg popularised and now everyones gonna rip it off.Few years ago no one cared about battle royale but now of sudden since pubg just obliterated steam, soon big companies are gonna implement it as well in there games

So what if its the future untill the next trend comes around. I still remmeber the hayday of the MMO and the MOBA clones. Its natural. Give it some time and we will all jump on another bandwagon.

It's not your cup of tea, so what? It's the natural progression of competitive online shooters. We now have the resources to mix open world, procedural generation, random spawns, world building and shooting in to one game- with a hundred players. It will only continue to evolve from here.
