Fortnite’s new season was flooded with criticism by players. In the past seasons, it has been possible to eliminate the simplest or most achievable challenges to make progress. However, now you have to overcome certain ‘challenges’ that Epic outlines for you. This prevents players from making progress.
Fortnite Chapter 2 began earlier this week, and with this comeback brought a number of changes, including a brand new map. The big change, according to Epic Games, was the promise to be ‘more fun, less challenging’. To this end, the battle pass provided more methods for testing the progress system and for players to level up, such as trenching and agricultural equipment.
In theory, it seemed a good idea, but fans who played the game for a week in the new system disagree. On social media, Fortnite enthusiasts complain that making progress during a battle pass is very difficult.
Some people share charts showing why Part 2 is seen as a major challenge:

Using this example and considering that the Fortnite season usually lasts 10 weeks, you will need to play about 15-16 games each day to reach the 100 level at the end of the period.
Comments came from the players
At some point, people started complaining. The Fortnite Twitter account, which says the word ‘less difficulty’, has many answers people use to discuss. Orum, I do a lot of farming and kill enemies, but I don’t get enough XP, Bir a Fortnite player said on Twitter. Fort The amount of XP you need to win to reach the next level seems to have increased 10-fold, başka said another Fortnite fan.
What disrupts the experience is that Epic Games has changed the way it works. In the previous season, you had a challenge every week. Now you’re fighting only three challenges in the beginning. Players can’t fight new ones until they solve the first 3 challenges. This is a system that prevents progress, rather than allowing players to advance further into Battle Pass as they wish.
