Finally, after being urged continuously by fans and pros alike, Epic Games has reportedly removed the skill-based matchmaking feature from squad mode in Fortnite. First introduced in Chapter 2, the skill-based matchmaking in squad was intended to make the game fun and competitive for players who enjoyed playing the squad mode. Sadly, the community didn’t take this change so lightly and it has ever since received severe backlash.

Although, there has been no official response from Epic Games, leakers are confident and have come to the conclusion that Epic has indeed decided to pull the plug on the skill-based matchmaking system in squad.

Famous YouTuber, Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan on his May 5th upload revealed that his sources in Epic Games have confirmed that “skill-based matchmaking has been removed”. According to him, Epic was planning to make Fortnite “less sweaty” and “more casual”.

Many Fortnite stars and influencers tested the squad mode and were convinced that the horrendous feature had finally been removed. Popular YouTuber Alastair “Ali-A” Aiken recently queued squad mode to test the potential rumours. After dropping 23 frags, the YouTuber was convinced that Epic Games had finally removed the hated add-on feature from Chapter 2 and expressed happiness over it on twitter.

This is the first time that a Battle Royal game has pulled the plug on the skill-based matchmaking in squad mode based on community feedback. While the Fortnite fans will be happy over the news, things won’t be the same for fans of other BR titles which still face the same problem.
