Hi all,

 

 

 

I play this game sometimes (most days). I saw the other thread (https://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=48&topicid=239582) about those pesky kids on fortnite when they shouldn't be and there was a lot of discussion regarding the game rather than parenting in there so maybe we move it here and can find some friends to play with?

I go by Scranax and I generally play to mindlessly fill my evening so I don't exactly try to play good and I sit under 1 KDR with bugger all wins but ah well.. 

Please keep parenting and how this game is destroying kids lives to the other thread and lets discuss the game here.

Maybe upon reply to this you include your Epic Games username and a tip or trick that you use to give you that leg up and maybe your favorite spot or a secret spot.

Cheers

Haven't played this game ever, but should probably give it a go just so I have an idea of what my 2 teen boys are talking about hahaha.

Hahaha you know me all too well!
In all honesty it is so funny and so adorable when a ~8 year old is playing. We never ever swear or anything when there are young kids on the other end of the mic and always be supportive and kind. Every single time the darn squeakers try to add me to play I sorta tell them nicely to find some people their own age hahahaha.

Well, Dead thread but I'll put an update in here..

There is this new purple cube moving around the map, Leaving like half gravity domes where it sits. Very weird, I just want to play the game not have random things like this added into it...

They updated the engine and did a few optimizations, Now running max graphics i sit around 30-40% usage on GPU and CPU from 100% pegged before the update.. No visual difference and still get constant 60 FPS.

I got the galaxy skin that everyone wants...

Agree with you on the purple cube. Well done getting the Galaxy skin.

I've just started my few month break from Fortnite to focus on my last semester at uni. It's definitely an addictive game, I'd hate to know how much time I've played. Fortunately the Xbox One time played stats glitched and stopped recording. I've got around 300 wins since last October, so that gives you a fair idea.

Just before I quit, we switched from playing duos to playing as a duo in squads. Really challenging, but the victories are that much more rewarding. If you're looking to freshen up the game, I recommend doing something like this. It's not easy on Xbox, and I imagine it would be that much harder on PC.

PC is absurdly competitive, some people have mastered how to build or execute macros. I swear there are applications now that build for you from what I have been spectating as of recent. 

 

I've made friends with a few streamers (Maybe cause im not 5 years old and squealing every 5 seconds) and they carry the heck out of me hahaha. Got about 30 wins in the last month.

What do you think of Season #6?

 

I quite like they pulled the island up from the centre of loot lake.

I am clearly getting too old. I don't get this game at all. It is perhaps that I've only played it on mobile that is the problem. Is there a good but simple 'newbie guide' anywhere you can recommend? I'm aware I'm well behind in terms of intoductions to the game, so I'm sure someones done some good write-ups - I've looked at a few that are either contradictory to each other, or just plain don't make much sense to me lol. Without making it a parenting topic, my son wants to play, but I want to understand it a bit more first, so I might need to install it on my PC and give it a proper go.

What's your favourite game mode?
I like soaring 50s, cause I'm getting eliminated right away if playing any other mode. LoL

I'd say 50v50 is somewhat noob-friendly.
You xcan even get a 3rd party elim if you're lucky enough.

Soaring 50's is the best, I can jump in and wipe like ten guys a game without even trying. 
Also its fun to practice building and defending from all angles. I suck at the game tho so I just get annoyed now when I play. Apart from 50v50
