Epic Bans Stretched Screen Resolutions from Fortnite Tournaments, Creating Pros

Fortnite as life, is full of mysteries. Why do we build if we will only destroy? Can you take countless lives to survive a carnage really considered a victory or, really, royal? What about this tomato guy? Why is he smiling? What does he know ? Then it is the biggest question of all: Does it play with an extended resolution actually an advantage in the game? Epic, it seems, believe it. Today Epic announced that extended resolutions will no longer be allowed in Fortnite competitive arena operations or in tournaments. Why is this? Well, for the past year, many competing Fortnite players have taken to changing their screen resolutions from 16: 9 (1920 x 1080) to wider weather conditions such as 4: 3 (1440 x 1080) and 5: 3 ( 1600 x 1080). For a long time, Tyler "Ninja" Blevins recently started to work out stretched resolution to prepare for the April 13 kick of Fortnite World Cup, a multi-part tournament series to serve as this year's backbone where Epic plans to award a total of $ 100 million to esport players. Players believe that stretched resolutions help them by, among other things, giving the function mirror treatment the size of the enemy hitboxes, which essentially makes them larger targets. However, other players have questioned this and said that, unlike, for example, CSGO resolution resolution in Fortnite characters are somewhat smaller to fit the new resolution. But in the process, Fortnite Fortnite increases the vertical field of view (FOV)…

Fortnite as life, is full of mysteries. Why do we build if we will only destroy? Can you take countless lives to survive a carnage really considered a victory or, really, royal? What about this tomato guy? Why is he smiling? What does he know ? Then it is the biggest question of all: Does it play with an extended resolution actually an advantage in the game? Epic, it seems, believe it.

Today Epic announced that extended resolutions will no longer be allowed in Fortnite competitive arena operations or in tournaments. Why is this? Well, for the past year, many competing Fortnite players have taken to changing their screen resolutions from 16: 9 (1920 x 1080) to wider weather conditions such as 4: 3 (1440 x 1080) and 5: 3 ( 1600 x 1080).

Players believe that stretched resolutions help them by, among other things, giving the function mirror treatment the size of the enemy hitboxes, which essentially makes them larger targets. However, other players have questioned this and said that, unlike, for example, CSGO resolution resolution in Fortnite characters are somewhat smaller to fit the new resolution. But in the process, Fortnite Fortnite increases the vertical field of view (FOV) of players, which is particularly beneficial during the game’s cheeky, upward and upward battles. Then there are other, less concrete benefits of suffocating the resolution: Some players say that the game feels more responsive when playing this way, possibly due to increased images per second or just personal comfort.

So that’s the ups and downs. The biggest drawback is that it makes people’s streams look ugly like hell. It can also technically be considered incredible, which has a-let’s say degrading effect on the quality of competition. It probably explains why, despite stretched resolutions still being allowed in normal games, Epic said in today’s announcement that vertical FOV will soon be locked regardless of the resolution you are recording.

For many streamers and professionals, this is a big change. They will need to adjust, and they will have to hurry, because Fortnite World Cup qualifiers begin in just 10 days. Ninja, the blue-haired money pattern of Fortnite ‘s own manufacture, is among many who express irritation about the timing.

“It’s mostly about how they do it all,” he said on on Twitter . “Allows stretched at the last Secret Skirmish and then changes a week after Arena also launched? I practiced it and now it’s all wasted. Same for every pro player using it.”

“Agreed” answered uber-popular Fortnite pro and streams Myth. “The execution is very bad.”

“It’s crazy” said Fortnite Pro Chap . “Constantly surprised at how incompetent Epic Games are driving something” competitive. “

This comes on the back of other latest balance and pacing changes that rubbing big-name players in the wrong way. These include a huge increase to the time it takes to harvest material as well as remove an increase in health and material for the players. Both lower the pace of the game and make it more inviting for new players, while pros can still enjoy the game’s earlier aggressive pace in the Arena mode, but with longer queues due to a smaller population of players.

These changes are However, in view of Fortnite appeal, the most recent or at least the fact that it has not happened before – is a head scraper.

“I understand everyone who plays in the same resolution … but why right now ? ” said streamer and pro-player Nickmercs .” Such a monumental change 10 days before qualification. Fortnite confuses me the moon. “
