Patch Notes Are Back

With the release of official patch notes for the first time in over a year, Epic is making a step in the right direction in terms of fanbase communication. The negative community sentiment that has arisen over many seasons has been nearly impossible to ignore, and now that the patch notes have come out many players seem optimistic.

Epic has shown recently their improved dedication to restoring the positive support that they once received; such as when releasing patch notes and an improved competitive experience. This communication has been long awaited and most competitive players are excited about the future.

Some of the major points to highlight within the release of the patch notes are a reduction to the primal shotgun fire rate, adjustments to the makeshift shotgun, and crafting mechanics adjustments. All three of these improvements are in response to the major backlash received once season six first launched. The patch thread can be found below.

Touching on one recent improvement Epic has made within the competitive side is the massive efforts to create a more seamless spectator client. This upgrade has been very important for us here at Open Scrims as well as the Practice Server. With the recent addition of the Solo Spotlight Scrims we have been able to watch and track players more seamlessly than ever before. Being able to have a strong spectator client has allowed us to run more games and let unknown talent shine in the spotlight.

Now all we can do as a community is to trust that this is only the beginning. Increasing communication and improvements over the course of the season in preparation for the next FNCS and other events will allow for more positive feedback from players and creators. This is a very strong start and it is only a matter of time until we hopefully see more improvements be made.
