More and more Fortnite players are asking Epic to reverse the changes made via the 8.20 update - and even KFC has joined the plight.
Fortnite is a game that is constantly changing and evolving. That's one of the secrets behind its incredible success. If you have been playing it for a handful of seasons, or maybe since the very beginning, the game and its map are likely almost unrecognizable now from what it looked like when you started.
Epic, Fortnite's developer, is normally also pretty good at listening to the vast Fortnite community and makes changes or even reverses them should players ask for it. However, it is turning a blind eye, or rather a deaf ear, to the most recent complaints. Epic ushered in some pretty major changes via the game's 8.20 update and, despite complaints from various major players, those changes remain in place weeks later.
Fortnite streamers Ninja and TimTheTatMan are just two big names who have voiced their concerns. However, even KFC has weighed in on the topic now - that's right, the chicken people. Well, more specifically KFC Gaming's Twitter account. The 8-bit Colonel took his first shot by tweeting a llama along with the caption "revert the update."

If that message wasn't clear or savage enough, the follow up was even better and also a direct reply to a tweet from Fortnite's account. Fortnite tweeted that "ruin is coming." KFC Gaming replied with a picture of three types of stock - beef, chicken, and Epic Games, which it labeled a "laughing stock." Shots were fired and let's be honest, it was a pretty hilarious reply in the process.
Aside from seeing Fortnite slowly descend from its current lofty position atop the gaming world, players' more immediate worry is that these changes will greatly affect the upcoming Fortnite World Cup. The game needs to be at its very best for the groundbreaking tournament, as millions of dollars will be up for grabs, quite literally. The last thing Epic will want during the tournament is some of its biggest fans and players turning their backs.
