Epic Games Co-Founder and Vice President Mark Rein responded after being criticized for being "non-contact" in the midst of continuing anger over the BRUTE 'Mech at Fortnite.
Since episode 10 began, Epic Games 'Battle Royale has been widely criticized for implementing BRUTE' Mechs. However, on August 15, Epic Games released an update on their "Fortnite Philosophy."
Essentially, the update has stated that an attempt is made to create a game environment in which anyone can gain a victory. This led to further setbacks in the community, some of which turned to Rein, especially after finding he liked a tweet that said Epic Games had "no obligation" to listen to the community.
The tweet that Rein liked indicated that Epic had "no obligation to obey" what the community wants.
The tweet showing Reins Twitter likes was originally from "Cowboy," a Fortnite Twitch streamer.
Professional Fortnite player for overtime, pacifist, responded to Cowboys tweet and said, "He's a super nice guy and down to earth. Met him at the toilet. Unfortunately, he has no idea what the competitive scene needs to thrive. "
Cowboy then replied that" no one who is pro-mech is a nice guy. "
However, Rein seemed to have a problem with this exchange. Just because he liked the tweet does not mean he's a" pro-mech "or a champion of ignoring the community.
I say something stupid and get up here; Nobody Pro Mech is a nice guy.

I use the Like button on Twitter as a bookmark to remember and find things easily. That does not mean that I agree with what I like or not, but simply that I wanted to refer to it later.

"I use the Like button on Twitter as a bookmark to remember and find things easily," he replied. "It does not mean that I agree with what I like or not, only that I wanted to refer to it later."
Reins argument is fair, as a "Like" on Twitter does not necessarily mean an agreement it is typical.
However, cynical community members are unlikely to buy Rein's answer, since Epic's VP would never be a tweet that essentially championed ignoring the community.
The BRUTEs have been added to give lower-skilled players the chance to win victorious royales.
The Fortnite community is pretty upset about the 'Mechs and would like to see a significant nerf or even their complete removal.
Epic appears to be strong, rejecting any allegations from the community that they "kill" their game, as some Fortnite creators have suggested.
