KFC Can't Stop Dunking On 'Fortnite'

Fortnite v8.20 update may be its most unpopular update ever. Since the siphon update went live, everyone and their dog's sister's cousin's friend has been calling for Epic Games to revert the update completely. Literally everyone. On top of a massive wave of players protesting the update, others have jumped on the dogpile, such as KFC, or more specifically, KFC Gaming.

For those not up-to-date on why people are angry at Fortnite, the game's latest update removed the siphon feature, which dished out health to players for eliminations. It was a popular feature that rewarded top and aggressive players, and in turn, discouraged camping and a non-aggression approach. The feature didn't come to the game for awhile, but now that players have had a taste of it, they don't want to play the game without it.

As for why Epic Games removed the feature, who knows. It probably had something to do with its initiative to make the game more friendly to new players and more casual players who aren't going to rack up bodies. Whatever the case, people aren't happy with the change, in fact, some people have called out the game "for protecting noobs."

That said, if Epic Games wasn't already getting enough slack, the savages over at KFC Gaming have dropped into the conversation to roast Epic Games itself. Yes, that's right, KFC Gaming has taken a stance: it is pro-revert.

If it wasn't enough getting roasted by KFC Gaming, Epic Games has also drawn criticism from the almighty himself, Zlatan Ibrahimovic. You know you messed up when God has to send a holy message via his earthly Swedish prophet.
