Apparently, Epic Games is well aware of the problem its Victory Royales have. They’re all to aware that players crutch on building, shotguns, and rocket launchers. That’s why they are aiming to make late game more about diverse strategies. This could be a great change, especially for players who aren’t good at building. Although, seeing the same outcome every time for a Victory Royale, is extremely boring.
In a post on Epic’s website, not only did they acknowledge the issue, they laid out plans on how to fix it. They started of saying, “It’s important to support a variety of late game strategies, that don’t boil down to “just build lol”. They continued, “Currently, the superiority of shotguns, rockets, and uncapped building are such a dominant play style in the final circle that most other strategies are being drowned out.”
Their upcoming plans include options to “counter other players in combat, especially in the late game”, as well as, changes to weapon balance and resource economy.”
Epic finished by saying “Not every encounter should have to end in a build-off. We want to empower you to showcase your skill, strategy, and tactics in all variety of ways.” They’ll be exploring these changes for the next few weeks, so it would be of no surprise if a patch comes out soon to make these changes.
