right bc it’s not like we played on the same map during chapter 1 for 10 seasons..

Nothing to see here.

Because the map is mostly the same as it was on chapter 2 release, it’s been a year now with this same map. Chapter 1 had a new biome every 2-3 seasons and a few new pois

Some fans had a positive reaction to the new map

Disappointment is understandable since players were expecting a lot more from the game owing to the massive hype behind the Galactus event. Fans expected the map to change completely, however, dedicated fans of the game will continue their journey in the game. Many of them stepped up to defend their favorite battle royale.

You cannot be serious. The old map was hot garbage. Everyone was complaining about it and asking for a new one.

The love for Fortnite is strong with this one.

Unsurprisingly, popular content creator SypherPK was enthralled with the event. No prizes for guessing if he’ll continue creating Fortnite content, old map or not.

These events keep getting better, will be hard to top this one 😳
