The NA Fortnite community is split as tournament servers merge

The NA Fortnite community is split as tournament servers merge ...

Epic Games is constantly changing the formula to give players a more personal experience both inside and outside the game.

After many data miners leaked that the new NA-Central server would be included in this update, professional players who moved to the east or west coast to get better ping will likely feel this change the most.

Some content creators and professional players expressed their concerns in the replies to the account's tweet. For instance, Nick Eh 30 claims that he now has nearly three times the ping in NA-Central as he did on his original server.

Others in the community expressed their satisfaction with this, such as the current streamer from Texas, SypherPK, who claims that he now has zero ping as a result of living so close to the data center. This will give him an advantage in North American tournaments.

Epic Games has also announced that the prize pool planned for the servers will be combined when the change takes place. This means that there will be fewer players who win, but those who do win will earn twice as much as if they had competed on their individual servers.

Although the community appears to be split, Epic wants to make a more consolidated region out of the North American FNCS scene. Ideally, this will lead to more representation from other countries across the world without NA-West and NA-East both being servers that took up space on the world roster.
