The Winter Royale Exclusive event has just started.
With $ 1 million on the line in prizes, winter royals have been qualified to qualify.
This morning, Epic Games introduced the Infinity Blade, which is similar in power to the Thanos Gauntlet from the Marvel LTM.
The problem is clear.

It's not even the sword, the plan so dramatically useless.
The backlash from qualified players has been swift.
Most notably is ninja.
"The players are just raging," he said in the Twitch clip below:
Ghost Gaming's Bizzle is quicker to criticize and did not pull any punches:
Can not believe I'll put my foot in it! updates before a major tournament. Huge loss of respect for @FortniteGame IDC what I've made in the past, a fucking sword, airplanes that dont shoot eachother and target players without them.

Team Liquid's Vivid is upset and said "When you get thrown into a game where it does not feel like you can win because you do not have a fuckin sword … it's tilting"
Even Psalm, who was the source of a lot of frustration after dominating a late game with the sword, seemed almost ashamed of using what felt like an underhanded tactic.
Sincerely apologize to anyone. I

Of course, it's not psalm's fault.
The tweets do the killings are over and done with talking.
Tfue (who did not qualify):
Winter Infinity Sworale looks fun 😂

This Sword is the dumbest thing I've ever seen.
Competitive btw. Other players do not stand a chance.
