I'm not saying I want the game to fail and go away, but it being such a blatant ripoff of PUBG and that being the thing that saved Fortnite from dying like Evolve, Battleborn, etc seems creatively bankrupt. I think it's laregly that aspect of "our own game was failing or doing mediocre so we copied someone else and now we're popular" is the annoying part to me. I root against it being more popular than PUBG, but since people do enjoy Fortnite I'm not saying I want it to go away.
I didn't like Fortnite because of the lame gunplay and for ripping off PUBG so hard. It's almost like being a sports fan of a team when you know one of their prominent players is dirty (Bruce Bowen with the Spurs or now Zaza and Green with The Warriors). I can't root for or be part of something when it seems morally dirty. I'm okay if something like Ghost Recon Wildlands or the next Battlefield added a BR mode too, if they add their own spin to it and because they're not relying on that concept alone to sell the game, since Wildlands is already a success and Battlefield is going to sell either way. I was curious how others felt about Fortnite's skyrocket to success.
For the record, I don't like PUBG that much, it's more about Fortnite being unoriginal and riding the coattails of another game because their original idea for their own game was failing.
Edit: I changed the name of thread since it seemed like saying "root for or against" was distracting people and they'd just respond to the title of the thread, rather than the overall post.
