This article is my full opinion on the game Fortnite. First, I’m going to talk about how they have managed their cosmetics. I think this is one the category that they have the most trouble with. The first thing in the cosmetics section I would like to talk about is “OG” skins. An “OG” skin is a skin that is rare, as in not a lot of people got it, but it’s new. The other type of “OG” skin is old so not a lot of people have it, because they were not playing back then. Anyway, the problem with the “OG” skins is that if epic re-released them they would lose their status as an “OG” skin because it’s more common.
This is where collectible styles came in. What collectible styles did was allow epic to re-release an “OG” skin that people really liked and then give the people who had it before a special cosmetic with it so when they wear that cosmetic they still have the “OG” status. They did this with the skull trooper skin they re-released it, and then allowed the people who bought it when it first came out they could make the bones glow purple.
Now I’m going to talk about the problem with cosmetics in Fortnite.
When Nog Ops was re-released with no collectible style there was an outrage. Everyone likes Nog Ops so everybody bought, and everyone with the “OG” status was very angry. It’s hard for anyone to understand how much people pride them selfs on they’re cosmetics, but sometimes it’s the only reason someone plays the game. There are not too many notable skins that have been re-released, but it can just make somebody angry when any of their skins get re-released.
Now I will Focus more on gameplay which I do think is good. Fortnite allows casuals and competitive players coexist in the same game which is big. There is the squad’s, and LTM for fun with friends. However, they still do have solos and pop up cups for a challenging experience. All Op guns or methods have been vaulted or removed. They have kept building a big part of the game so it’s not ruled by mobility. Overall the gameplay is quite good. In conclusion, I think Fortnite deserves to be popular and even in the department I didn’t like it’s not terrible.
