Even xQc thinks Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 UI is horrible
Epic Games have made a lot of changes to Fortnite as Season 8 Chapter 2 has developed. However, one slight feature seems to be worse, as players of all skill levels complain about the difficulty of the UI.
Navigating the menu proves to be a challenge for those who have been browsing Fortnite matches for years. Apparently, trying to load into a queue takes a lot of exploration and awareness to select the right option.
Fortnite streamer xQc reveals dislike of Season 8’s new UI system
xQc is a fairly popular Fortnite fan due to their streams and success as a player. A video leaked by data miner Hypex showcased the streamer’s issues with the user interface in Fortnite Season 8.
It looks like xQc speaks for all veteran gamers in saying that Fortnite is trying to simplify the UI menu, but in a way that makes it more complicated. Fortnite veterans are used to such a specific menu that introducing even the slightest change leads to grievances and UI issues.
The added queue types and scrolling feature make the match search process a nightmare. While this may sound pretty according to many Fortnite fans, it’s by no means easy to use.
Many feel overwhelmed by the new UI options and functions and want to remove them from the main part of the game. Epic Games may have gone overboard by trying to be too flashy. They seem to have created more problems with the introduction of the new user interface.
The goal of changing facets like the user interface is to make players’ lives easier and less stressful. In this case, the updated UI did the opposite, making the Fortnite game menus much harder to navigate and ending up hurting Epic Games by giving players a reason to turn away.
