PopularFortnite Season 4
Fortnite version 4.0 is finally here. This update gives us new places to explore, a new consumable and of course, a whole new battlepass. Let's give a rundown.
1. New areas
Today we found out that the Tilted Meteor didn't actually hit Tilted at all, in fact, it hit Dusty Depot to create Dusty Divot. This created a massive crater and flung pieces of the Warehouses across the map. Also, a brand new named area was introduced, called Risky Reels.
2. Gravity Crystals
As a result of the Meteor, gravity crystals were left behind inside all craters. These can be consumed to give you increased jump and no fall perks for a temporary time.

3. New Battlepass
With a new season comes a new battlepass. The new battlepass contains brand new items such as wall sprays, plus, new pickaxes, skins and dance moves (including the Orange Justice). #JusticeServedtoOrangeShirtKid
The new season also includes new breakdown challenges, where if you complete all weekly challenges, you will receive a bonus skin at the end of the season.
The battlepass is still 950 vbucks and 100 tiers.
That's it! What skins, weapons and dances do you think will be added to season 4?

PopularI GOT A QUESTION FOR EVERYONE...MODS AND ADMINS PLEASE CONSIDER THIS
I always see people asking for decent squads to play in... That's great because it's nice to be in a community and help everyone but here's my problem....
Everyone says decent squads please I have got 500 kills or have 1000 kills.... I don't understand why do you always have to play in a decent squad!!! If you have 500 or 1000 kills means you are very good at the game!! So if you play in a squad which has 1 member who has suppose 200 kills and 2 or 1 noobies then you can definitely share you knowledge with them!!! Help everyone!!! And if a noobie is asking for a squad and you don't want to take him, remember the time when yo were a noobie and you struggled to get experience and get good at the game!! Suppose some people may have gotten help when they were a noobie from a friend or a unknown person but those who haven't got that help and had to learn only by watching and playing on your own, remember your difficult days and think that this man/women who is asking for a squad shouldn't go through that pain... Even if you play 1 game with them, it doesn't matter as long as you help them become a good player
Sure some people may say that you get limited time to play everyday and you don't want to play with noobies... That's understandable but atleast you can comment on their post and ask what are they struggling in and give them your advice and opinion.... Helping others isn't a bad thing.... Everyone has to make sacrifices
Many good players who have high kills and experience, they always want to play with someone good.... Why is that Sir's and Ma'am's? Does this mean that you have gotten good at the game and you shouldn't play with less experienced players? Or has success gone in your head? Remember your roots, and try to get others strengthen theirs.
People may say that this man has wrote a article but I don't see him helping others... The matter of fact is I don't play Fortnite unfortunately... I don't have a PC or a PS.... I am just waiting when Epic launches the game on Android
So guys, please think upon what I said and help atleast someone... If you help someone get better they will always remember you and your help

PopularFortnite Is NOT Being Shut Down.
I have been seeing many twitter posts and news articles over the past couple of days containing a twitter post from @FortniteGame stating that fortnite battle royale will be shutting down May 24th due to a lawsuit from PUBG creators Bluehole.
This is false.
Fortnite BR will not be shutting down due to a lawsuit, in fact, it won't be shutting down at all.
The grammar in the tweet is incorrect, something that a major company wouldn't do. Making this tweet completely fake.
**Explaining the boards**
battle royal is meant for blog type posts, like anything fortnite BR related. Wether that be polls, game updates, what guns they like more than others, building tips, tips and tricks, asking questions about BR, and many more things along those lines.
LFG is looking for group where people make posts about wanting to play with others and such things alike.
Save the world is like the BR stuff, but for save the world instead or STW.
Promotions is for people promoting their content creation pages.
And highlights are for videos of your gameplay or others.
It's important for when someone makes a post on any of these boards, that they have some value for others reading it.
Ultimately it's a "gaming discussion app", not a moan and complain place or 1 word posts.
Its never personal when Your posts are deleted.
it's just us trying to keep things relevant and clean for everyone else so they find value in the app and use it to its full potential. Ya know?
And all the other game lounges are ran the same way.
Thanks for being apart of MOOT!
Microtransactions are the Future of Gaming. Here’s Why That’s a Good Thing.
Let’s face it: gaming companies are doing everything they can to extract as much money as possible from consumers. But that doesn’t have to be a bad thing. In the current age of online gaming, virtually every modern game is able to be tweaked and tuned by developers well after a game’s launch. This isn’t a feature, it’s an expectation. We expect bugs to be patched, OP characters and items nerfed, and a generally refined gaming experience that is as much the result of in-house testing as it is community feedback. It’s not just online games either, even single player games receive updates and have DLCs.
The beauty of microtransactions (stuff that you buy in-game for real money) is that they bridge the gap between the gaming community’s growing expectations and the increased demand of the developers. By providing a secondary source of income, microtransactions enable gaming studios to continually funnel money into existing games, which in turn provides gamers with an updated and improved gaming experience. Furthermore, this can help promote the longevity of a game by funding new content that can attract new players and keep current players excited.
Of course, microtransactions are not merely seen as a tool for secondary income. As a quick browse down the endless list of pay-to-win mobile games will show you, developers have readily adopted microtransactions as a primary source of revenue. And this is why everyone hates microtransactions - it makes us think of money-hungry mobile games, developers’ greed, and of small children managing to spend thousands of dollars of their parent’s money on gems and turbo boosts. I hate these types of microtransactions too, but here’s the thing: they’re not gonna last. They can’t. Why?
Microtransactions have given birth to some of the most popular games of all time, including League of Legends and Fortnite. Both games use microtransactions as their primary source of income and neither game is pay-to-win. These games are clear examples that the gaming community is more than happy to financially support the development of a game they love. This support enables the games to remain free-to-play, which promotes a larger and faster-growing playerbase and enables the developers to release updates and provide the best gaming experience possible.
Not only do gamers benefit by having access to high-quality free games and constant refinement, but microtransactions will also provide gamers with some unique opportunities. Because most successful games use microtransactions that are cosmetic-based (like Fortnite), there becomes a market for cosmetic items among players. For example, PUBG cosmetics are sold on the Steam Marketplace with some items valued at over $1000 (See my post about PUBG loot crates here: https://moot.us/lounges/2/boards/6/posts/18054 ).
As we already know, developers want to get as much money as they possibly can. In the near future, developers will integrate the trading of cosmetic items for real money within the game. This will enable the studio to receive the small commission on every trade, rather than giving it to a 3rd party like Steam. Ultimately, this means that players will have the opportunity to actually make money playing the games that they love. That’s pretty cool - and it’s all because of microtransactions.
Even though microtransactions seem like a money grab and are only becoming more prominent, they enable the gaming community to receive better games for less money. Believe me, the future of gaming is brighter than it’s ever been.
TL;DR: More funding = Better games, plus gamers will make money playing video games
*Although not strictly about Fortnite, I posted this here because I think the way that Epic Games has used Microtransactions in Fortnite will be the paradigm revenue model for the vast majority of games going forward.
