Fair warning: datamined documents are occasionally reliable indicators of what's coming into a match, like if we get to observe the Fortnite challenges a couple of days before or when the skins turn it in the game week or so before they actually hit the shop. If there's a full-on skin from the game, for example, you can bet it's actually coming. Sometimes datamined documents are less reliable, and we're discussing the latter right now. Recent sleuthing has uncovered a new folder connected to the limited time modes with "comp" in the title, and many are taking this to imply that Fortnite: Battle Royale is getting a competitive manner.

Let us think about why Fortnite could use a aggressive mode, to begin with Fortnite Items. For one thing, it's a ridiculously high skill cap -- which means that the best of the best players may wipe the floor with people like myself. That is mostly because of the fact that high-level gamers can easily juggle the building and shooting mechanics into a new kind of level-editing shooter that really hasn't been viewed before. Lower-skilled players are mostly playing with a standard shooter with the ability to construct ramps. Right now Fortnite doesn't have skill-based matchmaking, that is part of the fun: that John Wick on the horizon might be a fool with a lot of free time and/or disposable income, also it might be the most dangerous player you've ever met.

A competitive manner could give those hardcore players somewhere to show off in a setting where they'll only be up against tougher players. Any kind of ranking system would also offer a little bit more of an incentive for those players to stick around: somebody who has mastered the game might just move on to greener pastures if there isn't a new structure in which to prove themselves.

It could also begin laying the groundwork for genuine Fortnite esports. Esports with Battle Royale games are a tricky beast because arbitrary action can make things inconsistent, and sports thrive when they're predictable contests that allow player ability carry daily. Fortnite is a much better candidate than PUBG, at least, since the resource needs of this construction system encourage battle and discourage camping, and camping isn't a fun to watch. Fortnite is the biggest game in the world, but it is far from the biggest game in esports -- it is difficult to envision that Epic is not thinking about how to construct in that way.
