Fortnite Season Woes: Players React to Endurance Mode XP Reduction

Gamers express views on Fortnite’s Endurance mode XP drop: amusement, frustration, and some classic gamer humor.

The latest update in Fortnite, notably the new Endurance mode experience points XP reduction, has set off quite a wave of reactions among the gaming community. With the promise of intense battles and grueling marathons, the real struggle appears to be with the game’s stats rather than the enemy onslaught.

Gamer Reactions

  • Some users, like V1ctyM, take a pragmatic approach: ‘You have until March, I’ll think you’ll be fine, XP wise.’

  • Others register amusement at the surprising turn of events. For instance, Waste-Bag3398 chuckles, ‘And 17,000BXP from Daily Missions, down from 22,000. Not complaining, just amused.’

  • However, a number of players are genuinely baffled, like Frogscene, who asks: ‘What’s really weird to me about them decreasing the XP rewards but not lowering the cap itself?’

Slow Progress

It’s not just the reduced XP that’s raising eyebrows. Users also take note of the slower game progression. SadShallot3610 notices the drag, ‘Damn, I thought something was really off, 2 levels after 2 hours, it’s nutts how slow it goes now.’

AFKing Concerns?

One interesting thread emerges from the reactions. It’s about AFKing or ‘away-from-keyboard’ play. Some users seem to think the changes are aimed at discouraging AFKing. Alarming-Group5130 quips, ‘Still well paid for afking isn’t it?’ while barrack_osama_0 concedes, ‘To be honest I’m surprised they still let us even do it afk.’

Although the XP reduction in Fortnite’s Endurance mode has caused a stir, it’s clear the community’s spirit remains unbroken. The comments ranged from practical, to humorous, and somewhat baffled, illustrating the differing perspectives within the gaming community. Whether this change will alter game dynamics in a significant way, remains to be seen. Meanwhile, players will continue their in-game battles – both with enemies and the XP cap!
