Players Revolting In Response To Fortnite’s Save the World Changes

A new update for Fortnite that was recently rolled out has ticked off a lot of gamers, and they are revolting in an effort to invoke a change from Epic.

The outrage is regarding an update to the ‘Save the World’ mode that re-rolled stats on “Dragon Weapons”, which are a rare set of guns that can be unlocked via turning in Firecracker Tickets, which are earned in the “Spring It On” event.

Naturally, the rage made it’s way to Reddit where gamers sounded off.

“Basically what happened is a lot of people spent money and countless hours trying to get the best rolls on their Dragon weapons, like Crit Chance” one gamer posted.

“With this new update, Epic rerolled basically all of everyone’s Dragon weapons to become trash and useless. And this was intentional by Epic. They meant to do this. The problem is that when you spend 50+ hours or $200 trying to get something, then Epic destroys it, you’re going to be absolutely pissed.”

More concerning is that a subreddit is filled with players who are threatening to leave the game.

“I’m devastated,” one gamer wrote, saying he spent a lot of money on the game only for those items to lose their power.

“I want my money back. My loadoats are ruined. My schematics have rerolls on them. Stat caps have made my seven mythic leads no better than legendaries IN TWINE PEAKS … Epic you have just spit in the face of your whales. Literally the worst thing a f2p game could possibly do.”

The outrage has prompted Epic Games to issue an apology.

“When we first released the Dragon Weapons they were able to roll completely invalid sets of perks. They could be very bad (5 grey perks) or absolutely amazing (5 gold perks), but in both cases they did not follow our normal perk rolling rules.”

According to Epic’s stated rules:

Legendary

If the schematic didn’t have at least one blue and one gold perk — the item was re-rolled.

If the schematic had more than two gray perks, four blue perks, or four gold perks — the item was re-rolled.

Epic

If the schematic didn’t have at least one blue perk — the item was rerolled.

If the schematic had more than two gray perks, three blue perks, or three gold perks — the item was rerolled

“The system for re-rolling perks is actively being worked on, and will empower you to pick and choose which perks you want to change on the weapon,” Epic stated. “

We’ve started some high level design work on the weapon perk re-roll system, it’s going to take some time.”
