With the 150 player count on Call Of Duty Warzone and the larger map size in Fortnite Chapter 2, players have realized how empty the mid-game generally feels, especially with the removal of a lot of mobility items and vehicles. Recently, Ninja and SypherPK discussed the possibility of increasing the player count to 125 or 150 to give more action during the mid-game. It’s not uncommon for the 1st circle to close with 20 players left. Considering there’s 9 storm circle phases, this can make the game feel really slow-paced, especially when comparing to previous seasons.

“I’m thinking, how can Fortnite match the intensity of a match like Warzone does with the amount of players and the amount of action that’s always available on the map?” Sypher prompted the group.
“This map is 40% bigger than the last map and has the same amount of players,” Ninja pointed out. “It’s flawed.” Courage then suggested that Fortnite increase its player count to 150, to which Ninja agreed – even with a middle ground of 125.
“I’m sure the pub servers can handle 125 – even 150 [players],” Sypher suggested. Having ten or fifteen more players in a late-game scenario is far from too many.
