Fortnite recently launched a new Party Royale mode, a very innovative idea. This new mode adds along with the standard Battle Royale playlists. This place is to escape the pattern and the battles of buildings, drop weapons and enjoy the good vibes. This Party Royale island can be defined as a new experimental and revolutionary space. There you can find many activities and opportunities to explore. Currently, players can participate in regattas in the Fishsticks’ Boat Race, complete air courses in the Skydive Rift and try out new items such as the Paint Launcher.
Last week, there was a test event in which it was very successful. So, Epic is organizing the official Party Royale Premier this Friday, May 8th, starting at 9 PM ET. In this event, Dance Music stars Dillon Francis, Steve Aoki and Deadmau5 will participate. Just queue for the Party Royale playlist and join.
Even if you are late, you can watch the rest of the program, as it ends at 10 PM ET. Can’t you watch today? No problem, just like at the Travis Scott event, there is an encore. The entire event will be retransmitted on May 9, at 2 PM ET.
Even if you are not interested in the party, there will be a free gift. Any member who enters Fortnite from Friday, May 8, at 6 PM ET, until Monday, May 11 at 10 AM ET, will win at Neon Wings Back Bling. These colorful wings will react to the music, making them the perfect accessory for the show.
“Overpowered” Dragacorn glider disabled in competitive playsists
Another news from the last few hours for Fortnite. Dubbed the “anti-aimbot glider”, the community used this glider a lot due to its advantage. The Dragacorn glider was officially released on April 3rd. He made a few additional tickets to the Fortnite item store over the course of that month.
In case you don’t know how the Dragacorn glider performs in the game, the video above represents you very well. However, anyone who is already used to it, knows that this cosmetic is massively dominated in the competitive landscape of Fortnite.
The item becomes vulnerable when a player is casting a padding in a final game scenario. This unique standing feature that a player receives from the Dragacorn glider in combination with the “wiggling” animation. Making tracking the players with this glider much more difficult.
Shortly after this announcement, HypeX reported that anyone using the Dragacorn glider in the Arena would appear as a standard glider.

Epic once again showed that there is competitive integrity. He recognized the differences between competitive and top playlists. Prior to that, Epic’s position was to keep the two playlists as closely related as possible. Making casual players able to play exactly the same game as their favorite pros. After separating the withdrawal pools, this policy was significantly relaxed.
Epic Games has sent a community update on its Twitter page to clarify any uncertainties:
While we work on an animation fix, the Dragacorn Glider will temporarily appear as a default Glider in competitive playlists on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac. The animation fix will apply to all platforms and modes.

Epic will also reimburse those who bought the glider without having to use a refund token. “After the Glider’s animation changes, owners of the Glider will have the option to refund it without the use of a refund token,” continuing the thread.
Now or later, that would be fixed anyway. It can be understood in this way. This is all for the Solo Fortnite Championship Series Invitational. There is US$ 2,000,000 at stake, it is normal to see the Fortnite team take on these responsibilities before a big event like this.
Fortnite: Competition with Superpowers Dislike Players
The new season of Fortnite, which added skins, weapons and Marvel-themed items, has been a lot of fun for those who play battle royale outside the competitive landscape. And it has been a full plate for content creators. But the update has been the subject of constant complaints from professional players. American Bugha, one of the biggest names in electronic sports and last year’s World Cup winner, expressed his indignation on a social network.
why am I playing a comp game with superpowers???????
— Bugha (@bugha) August 29, 2020
Bugha refers to items that simulate superpowers used by Marvel heroes and villains. Among the new superpowered weapons available in the game, at least two of them are competitive so far. Two powers of Doctor Doom, a glove that casts lightning without stopping and a ball of energy that destroys buildings.
For Brazilians Mojak and Spitflow, these new powers should not be in competition.
“In a championship, for example, if you use mythical powers you can easily make a trio focus. A trio becomes focus when several other opponents start shooting at the same building. With infinite ammo or a stronger energy ball , the walls are destroyed more quickly “.
“A trio with stronger items than everyone else gains an advantage over that. Example is Doctor Doom’s gauntlet that unleashes” bullets “endlessly”
Therefore, it is common in competitions that several players struggle to dominate this point in search of weapons. With 100 players in a match, only one will be able to use the items.
Other powers were only in casual play. Like a powerful Iron Man beam, and blows with Wolverine’s claws. Something that, for the professional player Blackoutz, should also happen with the weapons of Doctor Destino.
Complaints are not exclusive to superpowers
Professional dissatisfaction with weapons or unbalanced items goes beyond the new superpowers. The dance grenade, for example, returned to the game this season and is practically a negative unanimity between them. With that, Epic Games decided to take the dance grenades out of Fortnite’s competitive mode. The latest update has been subject to constant complaints from professional players as mentioned above.
“The item does things that don’t have counterplay or the counterplay isn’t enough,” explained Blackoutz. “The grenade makes the opponent dance for a few seconds, preventing him from firing and countering the blow – leaving him completely vulnerable to opponents.”
“Both deal 200 damage, which, in my view, does not guarantee a fair fight. This hinders the championships, as the players no longer depend on their ability, but on luck”
The complaints have not started this season. In the last two, mythical weapons dominated the discussions. These items were found only in bosses located at specific points on the map. And who dominated those points, ended up finishing the season winning the main tournaments.
In season 2, the Brazilian Frosty won the FNCS Invitational with the mythical scar and grappler – considered the most unbalanced items of the time. The following season, another victory for those who conquered the ground with the best weapons: the Argentine K1ng dominated Toca do Gato and won with the grenade launcher.
Despite the duo’s undeniable talent, many opponents questioned whether the results would be the same if these mythical weapons were out of the championships.
