Tyler Blevins, best known as Ninja offers his thoughts on what he believes to be the issues that competitive Fortnite is facing, and how the players and teams taking part can put themselves in better positions to be successful.
Fortnite, especially the competitive side has skyrocketed since its 2019 World Cup. Without having a completely separate league, competitive Fortnite is still played through open online servers instead of having their own private match lobbies.
On Sept. 26. through Twitter, Ninja talked about how putting more skilled professional players and teams into the same lobby as just regular gamers who just casually play the game, makes it harder for Fortnite to be taken seriously. Ninja goes on to explain that how not having a professionally run league like Call of Duty, Overwatch, League of Legends, etc greatly hinders Fortnite. Which makes it twice as hard for the immensely popular to recieve recognition as a true Esport.
It's a no-brainer that leagues consisting of well-respected teams and players who know how to play at a high professional level get more attention, recognition, and most importantly revenue. Fortnite players and fans everywhere should be glad that Ninja is speaking up and trying to start a conversation that can only make the community better.
