After the immense hate Epic Games has been receiving due to the introduction of BRUTE mechs into the game, and popular streamers deciding to Boycott the game, the #RemoveTheMech has finally received an answer.
Fortnite’s answer wasn’t appealing to their player base, they won’t be removing the mechs from the game, and instead, they explained “Fortnite’s Philosophy”.
It appears that Fortnite is trying to bring in players into the game and keep them playing by allowing them access to means that would make it easier for them to win, especially if they’re not skilled as other players in the same game, giving them advantages that would change the outcome of the game.
“The mission of Fortnite is to bring players of all skill levels together to have a fun experience where anyone can win. For example – everyone having a shot at that first elimination or Victory Royale moment and the satisfying feeling that comes with it. Right now, we know there are players out there who have never had that opportunity.” The Fortnite team stated.
Fortnite team also added statistics that show that the mechs aren’t overpowered.

The community wasn’t thrilled with the answer, a lot shared that Fortnite is catering to less skilled players giving them easier methods to win the game rather than being skilled at the game.
One person tweeted: “This is like when kids get participation awards.”
Muselk popular YouTuber tweeted: “Getting your first win is awesome. Not wrong. But what MAKES your first win awesome is the struggle it takes to get there. Not just spamming missiles while hiding inside a 1000 HP robot.”
It seems that Fortnite is, in fact, trying to keep none skilled players to continue playing the game giving them other means to win, obviously, the team believes that that’s the correct path to choose to keep their game popular and hold on to the majority of the player base while adding new features to the game.
