    That's on Sony for not allowing crossplay with other consoles. Works fine linking with every other platform.

    This is a casual game people play on their phones, probably best to not take it too seriously if you're going to play at all.

    There is an actual competitive scene aside from the toxic kids, and as times pases and players learns the mechanics, it gets pretty competitive even if playing casually...

    I don't doubt that there are people who think they're playing competitively, but RNG in shooting mechanics is strictly a casual thing to give shitty players a chance. Fortnite is just a fad game, its "competitive" scene will die in a year or two when the fad becomes something else.

    Downloaded, had to agree to page allowing them to collect information (innocent enough; just need to see IF you have a Nintendo account). Begged me to sign up for an account with them (I declined). Then it wanted me to agree to some long-ass EULA. That straw broke mah back. Closed game and deleted.

    Except it’s not. The phone version is trash and if you don’t want to play competitively, you won’t last 5 minutes. These fuckers can snipe you with a pistol miles away.

    2 Million downloads in the first 24 hours I've read.

    Tried it myself on my switch, dropped from the sky, got a handgun, 3 minutes passed and I hadn't seen a player yet, just kept running around, left the game. Realized it isn't my kind of shooter, but I wish Epic the best.

    Oh and about playing it in handheld mode : Letters are too small or I'm getting old. Maybe a combination of both.

    You gave up too fast, the playing field keeps getting smaller.

    Youre at a disadvantage anyway even on ps4 cause some pc players will have 144. And theyll be at a disadvantage to players at 240. Obviously this makes it worse, but even if switch was 60 it would still not be an even playing field. Plus mouse aiming.

    which is all it matters. and take it on the go is an advantage, it's a shame they didn't let us exploit use the motion controls.

    that's another can of worms. Sony is being picky now that is at "the top" of the generation.

    On the PS4 you can select to exclude cross-platform players during matchmaking. Not sure if you can do this on the Switch.

    I was told the ps4 could not play with other platforms, and accounts that played on ps4 were locked from ever being used on other systems
