all BRs are RNG based so cant be esports
BR to esports is what esports is to sports. 100 more years and we take it seriously
No BR should be an eSport.
It's an esport, but a really shitty one that no one cares about. Like american sports
Your grammar is shit, change my mind.
fortnite is an esport*
Also any competitive game can be an esport, doesn't matter what it's parameters are.
Also doesn't mean any competitive game can be a "good" esport for spectators and players.
Of course it is, can't imagine anyone would claim otherwise.
For a game to be an esport it has to have some sort of organized competition, which it obviously has. It's not harder than that.
Any game whose mechanics are based on rng in a big way are not esports.
>CSGO: minimal rng(basically spawns and some lucky bullets from time to time).
>Lol: As far as i know, dragon spawning
I dont count card games cuz they are competitive games(not videogames) on their own, they can be played irl.
trash but still better than FIFA or World of Tanks
Would CS be competitive esport if you spawn with random equipment in a different map every round and teams switched randomly too? You can put a $10 000 000 prize on throwing dice. Doesnt make it skillbased or exciting to watch.
Yes it can be but will not watch it tho :)
yes it can but its kinda boring to watch
we already saw PUBG Esports thing and it has died like shit.
BRs are Esports but worst one, cuz you have 100players, its hard to watch it
You saw PUBG back than it was shit cuz you cant watch players that you want
Even casters are shit they dont know how to cast fights between multy teams
rng thing is kinda shit but yea
so after all it is a Esports but not good one (people dont like that kind of staff)
dont get me wrong, im not telling that fun Streams like Ninja or any other are shit, its fun to watch streamer playing casualy but competition streams are shit.
And big thing about it, if we ever get big fortnite tournaments like CSGO Major, DOTA International, LOL worlds or Starcraft2 WCS, comentators will be shit like in OW and HoTS, PUBG becuse their main stream game are some of those (CSGO, DOTA, SC2, LoL). They wont get hyped on a big plays, they can only act. We already saw semmler in OW(Acting hype was shit), ReDeYe in PUBG (He was acting hype). Becuse their main game are CS). Fortnite doesnt have some comentators that are in love with game. Maybe some streamers but half of Streamers are acting all the time. Best Esports game are old ones(CS, DoTA, LoL, Starcraft) becuse they have people willing to give time in talent table. CSGO have people that want stick with the game( SPUNJ, pimp, ynk, zews, zonic) They all were pros in their time.
BR will never be an esport. simple as that
1 too much RNG
2 too much players so it's chaotic to watch
3 the pace is too slow especialy on competition wich makes it really boring to watch
4 High level comp game ends up in camping in your wood castle untill the circle shrinks, wich makes it boring to watch
In conclusion yeah you can make competitions and have esport around it but it won't be followed by many cause watching a good player having fun in casual games is funnier to watch.
It is an esports but In my opinion it's bad
you're funny! dumb....but funny!
we have no reason to prove you anything....if you want to believe that BR games can be successful esport than go ahead, it's your business.
For everyone who doesn't actually know much about Fortnite or barely played it, remember your opinion is pretty irrelevant which is all of you in this thread. I've clocked over 1500 hours on Fortnite and played top level qualifiers and scrims and yes in theory Fortnite is RNG but it is honestly quite minimal with pop up cup rules and changes that have been made to the game. The only thing that can really fuck with you is the late game zones and even then changes to this should be occuring soon, due to all the good changes that have already been made due to competition from Apex Legends. I do believe it can become a good game in the future and I'm sure almost everyone who is here won't believe me since you guys lack understanding and knowledge of the game. Remember this in around a year and if Epic Games is cooperative which is looking likely with Apex's competition, then we can see a great game you guys wish you played earlier.
too much wacky bullshit currently to be an esport
during season3 it looked like the game had promise, but now its casual arcade game ruined by epic
No, it's just a casual game
In my opinion a good e-sport is something that is entertaining to watch. Battle Royal games are so boring and confusing to watch. 100 players get dropped and its impossible to follow everything and the first 10 minutes is just people looking for loot. Boring as fuck.
it is an esport but a very shitty one
-RNG based game
-only lone map and its kind of the same every game.
-can't watch one team or player because it's not a small team or amount of players
killed by apex legends thank based apex
Not the same game but i'm sure it applies here.
I got asked to "scrim" on apex last night. This involved joining a party and queuing in to a public game. How the fuck is this a scrim or any different to just pubbing
Fortnite is quite unlike CSGO.
Play what you like.
