Epic Games have made a change to the amount of XP that can be earned through the Fortnite Imposters Mode, reducing it by 50%.
In a new change which is already proving to be controversial among fans, the amount of XP that can be earned through Fortnite's Imposters mode has been reduced. The change has slashed the amount of XP by roughly 50%, making level progression a little bit harder.
Many fans has cited Imposters mode as being one of the most viable ways to get XP in the game, making it a great way for players who aren't keen on grinding to be able to get through a good chunk of the Battle Pass. The counter argument is that some players might have been progressing too quickly, using Imposters mode to burn through the levels.
The announcement was posted to the Fortnite Status Twitter page, and read "we've reduced the XP earned in Impostors mode by roughly 50%."
"We're keeping a close eye on player XP progression this season and evaluating several improvements for the near future. We'll provide more details on these changes when they've released."
Reactions to the change have been largely negative. One commenter expressed disappointment, saying "not everyone can play 12 hours a day to unlock Carnage please fix this *ss XP system." Others noted that it seems to go against Epic's motto for this chapter "less grind, more fun."
Regardless, it seems as though Epic will be monitoring the XP progression and may perhaps take this feedback to heart. Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 has only just begun so there's still plenty of time for the game to get some of this season's issues straightened out.
