With DreamHack recently switching to a duos format, competitive Fortnite players and fans worldwide instantly campaigned for Epic Games to release Arena Duos. Not many thought this request would come to fruition. At 11:15 AM EST, @FNCompetitive tweeted, “1M Followers = Duos Arena. No cap,” the entire competitive scene exploded with excitement. Top players like Benjy “benjyfishy” Fish, Martin “MrSavage” Foss Andersen, and even the DreamHack Fortnite account retweeted the post for millions of followers to see. It took just over one hour for @FNCompetitive to improve from 943,200 followers to over 1 million. Shortly after, Epic Games released Arena Duos to a collective outpouring of support.

Epic Games Does Listen After All

Ghost Gaming member nanolite summed up the experience in one simple Twitter message with the “how it started, how it ended” meme. Benjyfishy took it one step further, asking if Epic would consider duos Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) at 1.5 million followers. Not a single player can complain about what just transpired over the last two hours. These types of gestures should serve as a reminder that Epic Games does listen to the community.
