In addition to the release of a new update, the conversation of the city in Fortnite has clearly been the appearance of a mysterious giant purple cube in recent days. This almighty creature (all hail cube) is covered with hieroglyphic symbols, shoots purple lightning and moves slowly somewhere, so the fascination for that is understandable. However, a few hours before the cube appeared on the scene, there was a major change in Fortnite's challenges that shook up the weekly formula in a positive way.[[[[Updating: After Week 7 introduced the new phase-based approach to breast targets, week 8 went back to the old style of breast missions. That's disappointing, but you can still read why it's wise for Epic to permanently use the newer style below.]
Every Thursday new challenges are released, resulting in a flood of Battle Pass owners jumping and bombing at a particular location because there is a new challenge. Sometimes it's a mess, especially if you want to take on the challenge that is about opening crates easily. This sounds easy enough, but when you have about 30 or 40 people descending somewhere like Fatal Fields trying to do the same thing, it becomes a crazy dash to open a single box before it dies without a perverse result. This is repetitive, frustrating and you wonder if it's all worth it for another dance moped or a beautiful skin (spoiler: that's always it).
Epic surprised us last week, however, by finally changing the way in which chest-facing challenges work. Now it is a kind of "quest" with multiple steps that spread the challenge across multiple locations. Instead of this hectic scam to open a chest before anyone else can, the player base is spread across the map, depending on the stage of the challenge they are currently facing. I managed to open all five boxes in five different games with little problem. I was not immediately dead because someone else shot me in the back after having first found a coffin; I could really have a good game of Fortnite, open a chest to check it off the list, before I would leave to face other challenges / die somewhere else. This is a clear improvement over previous weeks and is in stark contrast to the old formula of countries in the same place and die again and again like Tom Cruise Edge of Tomorrow.

I understand that this is not a groundbreaking change, but it removes much of the monotony of Fortnite's weekly challenges and also has an effect on the overall composition of matches. With the spread across the player base, the flow of games is a lot smoother, with a greater chance of fighting opportunities, wherever you are on the map. It is a practical change and it gives me hope that Epic still has some changes in store for the weekly challenges of Fortnite.
Season 5 has already seen some interesting activities, from the use of ATK & # 39; s and trolleys to jump through rings of fire, to the recent time trials that indicated the building and running skills of people (complete with an 8-bit remix of the old Fortnite theme). These challenges offer a welcome change in pace, and there is always excitement in the air every Thursday as we wait to see if Epic has something so unconventional in store. In fact, we pay for the privilege to take part in these challenges, right? She might as well make fun.
