Fortnite Battle Royale is on a stable path as a game. The player community is consolidated now it is more stable. After reaching more than 300 million players registered Epic Games star game plateaued but now it is more stable. However, the same can not be said about esports for Fortnite. Fortnite esports had a bumpy start one and a half years go. We have seen Epic Games changing the game within the middle of a tournament. Afterward, Fortnite World Cup was a commercial success and an interesting event. However, there is still one problem within the game according to the pro’s controller issue.
Controllers are primarily used on consoles. However, when you are on your computer you can also put a controller on and play the game. This might seem like an ok addition to the game. However, it is not according to the pro players. As controllers act like aimbot on PC. Because of the aim assist good controller players to have a superior aim than a mouse and keyboard users. The hitmarker snaps on the target when a controller player takes aim and it is quite strong as it can snap onto a target from a long distance. Fortnite star player Ninja talked about this in his recent Twitter post.
