    Legitimately don't understand how this game is popular other than it being free to play with a heap of children creating accounts. It's horribly balanced, designed from the ground up to be retard friendly (ie. awful weapon spreads, locked 3pp), and ultimately unrewarding even if you are decent at it.

    I dunno shroud/ninja seem to always win, seems is quite a large skill set required to consistently win, less RNG then PUBG. Can track stats if that what you mean by rewarding, what does PUBG give that FN doesnt in terms of rewards?

    There's a high skill ceiling but the floor is what I'm talking about - it's high as well, hence the popularity with children I guess.

    There's definitely not less RNG than PUBG - first shot accuracy change alleviates some of it, but the games heavily dependent on early boosts and weapon loadouts.

    Rewarding in the feeling/sense of accomplishment for a win - which IMO Fortnite does not offer. It's "just another win" - even in my first win in Fortnite all I could think was "this is fucking stupid" - yet with hundreds of wins in PUBG I still get that positive feeling with pretty much all of them.

    I feel the exact opposite way about the two games.

    Amazing how opinions work, isn't it?
