Epic Games also announced that they are planning to organize some other high-level competitive events in competitive Fortnite with the aim of filling the void created by events with no gatherings.
Epic Games have also decided to keep a close eye on the competitive health of Chapter 2 Season 5 of Fortnite. One major factor, for now, that affects Fortnite Competitive is the working of the new Bars System. Currently, the players can collect gold bars which can be carried over across multiple games. But, for competitive Fortnite events, each player will start a game at zero bars and earn them in every new game.
Epic Games are also intended to make some other adjustments and alterations in the Fortnite Competitive events for which the new ideas will be discussed after collecting useful information and feedback about the current status of Fortnite competitive events.
The new Fortnite season is expected to be more suitable for Fortnite Competitive events as compared to all the previous seasons with new features and better tactics available for the players to use.
