Why the Season 10 redesigns are a good thing.

So Fortnite decided with Season 10, or Season X to instead of creating brand new characters, to recreate old skins from previous battle passes. I have noticed a split between the community where some people are very happy with the battle pass, some who thought it was lazy, and others who are made because they hate that it’s a redesign of their rare skin. I definitely see all sides here and I’m kind of in the middle. However, I would like to share a though with you guys about what this could mean for the future of cosmetics in this game especially with dealing with older cosmetics that were exclusive and became unavailable before the game became popular (Floss, Black Knight, Renegade Raider).   Epic games kicked themselves in the but by putting the floss emote on the season 2 battle pass. Its one of if not the most desired emote in this game and most people can’t get it because they didn’t start until season 3 or 4. This is why the “No Sweat” aka the “1-armed floss”, was created and why a new windmill floss was found in the files. Epic knows a lot of players wish they could have gotten the floss and are trying to give new players that emote while not violating the “OG” players.   This is something similar that they are doing. Sparkle Specialist, and Black Knight are very good popular skins, partially due to that rarity but also because they are fantastic skins. Because Epic can’t rerelease these skins, they have created new ones for the newer players to have and have improved their appearance to better stand out when compared with the massive progress in skin designs.   As for skins like DJ Yonder, Rust Lord, and Technique, these are popular skins when compared to other battle pass skins but their designs are either bland or unloved when compared to modern skins. The creation of Yond3r in particular is very appealing as it took a bad looking bot skin from season 6 and created a visually stunning skin.   I do see many opportunities with skin redesigns. Some of you may disagree with me on this (OG players *cough), but old battle pass redesigns could be a great thing for the community. Personally I’m hoping for redesigns of Carbide and Omega (2 of my favorite skins but I feel if a redesign is done right it will make them even better), Elite Agent (design a better helmet and new colors), Ragnarök (one of my favs but too bulky), and maybe Renegade raider if they do it right. <br />Thats all i'm gonna say. Thank yall for taking the time to read my post and let me know what yalls thoughts are in this.

    I agree!

  • vRiotz LV.3 Lurker Aug 3, 2019, 09:08 AM

    i like the redesign's but one thing i don't like is that epic games said there is to much transportation so they take it all out then the game takes too long

  • Silent_Cactus14 LV.15 Chief Aug 3, 2019, 10:20 AM

    agreed, if they're gonna take away that much, put something else in. like being back the golf carts that's nostalgic

    I am also in the middle of this, because I do believe that players should get what they want but I also believe that they should not violate the “OG” players by giving new players the same thing. What I will say is, people (like me) who had the chance to buy any battle pass but had not been able to get to tier 100, should get another chance to earn what ever they’ve missed. For example, when I first bought the battle pass for season 2 I didn’t really know how to tier up quickly and I bought the battle pass pretty late into the season, and unfortunately I wasn’t able to get the Black Knight before the season ended. This is why I feel that epic games (if they can) should look for “OG” players that have not completed their battle pass, and give them whatever they couldn’t have!

    Like carbide I didn’t hit a certain lvl so I can’t even use his max style

  • Volt3xX LV.4 Lurker Aug 3, 2019, 09:02 AM

    Honestly, I wouldn’t know why people would be upset if there redesigns of OG skins. Like, you’re gonna know that it’s a redesign and it’s not OG. Like, you’ll still have the black knight, the sparkle specialist, etc. which are the original and the OG.

  • Silent_Cactus14 LV.15 Chief Aug 3, 2019, 10:26 AM

    it's kinda like when they added the John wick skin and the reaper owners got mad, I haven't seen as many complaints this time as they're were then but they're still is some hatred. idk man

  • Volt3xX LV.4 Lurker Aug 3, 2019, 11:42 AM

    But it’s like, as long as you have the original, just be happy with that. You are an OG and the others are not

  • Stephen Baker LV.4 Lurker Aug 3, 2019, 10:09 AM

    I personally don’t mind the redesign of the skins, but I also would like to be able to show I’ve played the game since the beginning. That being said, I think the skins from the battle pass also will bring people back from the old days when they may have quit.

    i agree honestly. they’re actually listening to the community and throwing it back for everyone.

  • Commander Xex LV.3 Lurker Aug 4, 2019, 12:29 AM

    I just miss having daily challenges or weekly challenges. Since I don't have battle pass I'm kind of stuck grinding away, which isn't too bad.

  • dhargett09 LV.7 Nomad Aug 8, 2019, 01:22 PM

    season 10. sucks

  • Eventt シ LV.21 Big Chungus Aug 16, 2019, 10:06 AM

    i have like every rare skin but I like the the redesigned skins because most OG skins don't have the best design compared to the newer skins and with all the new redisgned skins it, as you said, looks more up to date and gives other players a chance to have something similiar.

    Not a good idea
