When Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 dropped, I used to be impressed with how they carried out the Quests with punchcards. I used to be pissed off with the gradual Quest development in earlier seasons, and having them full and transfer ahead robotically was what I assumed a welcome change. I could have been flawed. Luckily, an XP fix is to come.
Fortnite: Epic Games admits they goofed on Season 8 Quests
As the primary week of Season 8 went on, gamers seen one thing unusual about punchcards. There’s solely a lot XP to be obtained, and gamers didn’t like being bottlenecked. It’s solely the primary week, however it nonetheless feels dangerous having to wait round.

That didn’t cease some gamers, like Loot Station YT, who has by some means reached Level 300. It’s not from grinding the sport with out sleeping, although they did play and stream fairly a bit.
The reply is Impostors. Somehow, Impostors grants a ton of XP. Or moderately it did, as Epic Games have diminished the quantity of XP ready to be earned in Impostors by half.
This has induced some outrage, with gamers like Loot Station YT advocating to revert the change. Creative mode additionally had its XP yield altered final Season. These adjustments, mixed with the Team Rumble change that made finishing Quests tougher, have made incomes XP slower however streamlined.
Streamlining isn’t essentially dangerous, however with a restrict on how a lot XP one can earn from Punchcards it appears like you may hit a wall in development that’s not widespread for Fortnite.
We’ve seen that XP gained in Battle Royale this season isn’t the place we’d prefer it to be and are making quite a lot of enhancements.
We’ll replace everybody on 9/28 with the adjustments we’re making. Thanks for enjoying Season 8! pic.twitter.com/OP2xWgnVpV

Luckily, Epic Games have heard the criticisms and are issuing a rework of Season 8’s XP system. I don’t assume the unique Impostors XP will come again, but when there’s a greater punchcard system then perhaps we gained’t want it. The change will come Sept. 29.
