Occasionally, we bear witness to the rise of a video game that's so popular, it drives a notable quantity of wedges between lovers. The rise of Fortnite has inspired some scorned squeezes to start up petitions begging Epic (or God, or Nature, or whomever) to kill the enormously popular battle royale game.
Though the petitions complain about wasted time and unanswered text messages, they mostly appear to be in good fun. Granted, it's not always easy to decipher someone's tone on the Internet but expecting Epic to delete its red-hot meal ticket because players keep missing phone calls or dinner dates is funny to even think about.
"Together we can stop this dumb game from existing," states the "Get rid of fortnite" [sic] petition started by Chloe DePalma. It's the most popular anti-Fortnite petition so far, and at the time of this writing, it's quite close to its 500-signature goal.
Whew. Well, no worries: Fortnite is here for you today, and it'll be here for you tomorrow. Make sure to check out our guide for the Week 7 Challenges and have a look at our general tips, tricks, and guides for Fortnite Battle Royale.
