The arrival of the tenth season of Fortnite promised to be one of the most idyllic, 10 is a round number and many expected Epic Games to celebrate in style, however, the prominence is taking the mekas of the tenth season. A few days ago we told you about a bug that allows you to be invulnerable, but there is something more annoying than this for the players.
This is the B.R.U.T.E a new vehicle and weapon that premiered in season 10 with all its power and, according to the players, its presence affects much more than the bug we discussed.
Hashtag #Removethemech already has tens of thousands of mentions in Twitter, was the hashtag chosen for Epic Games to understand the seriousness of the situation from the point of view of these players. And the truth is that it worked since the balance team responded with a blog post, however, it seems that the answer only made things worse since Epic Games does not believe it is necessary to make changes.
The balancing equipment of Fortnite He believes that the philosophy of the game is more important and they consider that it revolves around the casual game, and that each player can get a “victory royale” at least once. The B.R.U.T.E meka is so powerful that it is leading slower or clumsy players to win games that they should not use the meka, which is why Epic wants to keep it in the game.

Discomfort in the competitive
For many players this is a betrayal and they are certainly strange statements for a studio that has just distributed millions of dollars for the World Cup. Fortnite, that is, the competitiveness and ability of each player is important to get the prizes. However, apparently it is also that everyone can win, something that goes against the aforementioned.
These statements have only bothered the community more, so we imagine that it is only a matter of time before the meka ceases to be available in the game or is “nerfed” so that its presence does not ruin the games. It would be a surprise that Epic Games continues with this philosophy and takes this to the point of retaining the meka much longer, since its statements are contradictory regarding the history of the game and its own competitive scene.
