Fortnite Battle Royale. The video game craze that has taken the world by storm and consumed all of our free time. But before we were all absorbed into this alternate reality, each of us was a new player, ignorant to the world of Fortnite.
Your experience probably looked something like this.
1. WHY IS EVERYONE PLAYING THIS GAME?
It just seems like the Hunger Games and Minecraft combined… what’s the big deal? I don’t want to pay money for this.
2. WOW, IT’S FREE?
Alright, maybe I’ll just try one round. There’s no harm in that right?
3. WHY ARE WE BEING FLOWN BY THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS?
I’m just waiting for Miss Frizzle to appear and tell us some fun facts about this field trip.
4. OKAY, WHERE SHOULD I LAND....
Fatal Fields doesn’t sound too promising, but neither does Greasy Grove. I’ll just pick randomly. It doesn’t really matter, as long as I have a good strategy.
5. THIS CAN’T BE SO HARD
All I have to do is hide someplace on the edge of the island, and I’ll win! Nobody will think to find me there,
6. WAIT… WHY IS THE PERIMETER SHRINKING?
I thought I had this down, and now here we are. Also, this isn’t how storms work.
7. I CAN’T BELIEVE I DIED ALREADY.
I was one of the first to die? Come on, I can’t be that bad at this game.
8. I’LL JUST PLAY ONE MORE ROUND.
I need to at LEAST make it through long enough to brag about it. But I wouldn’t be too mad about achieving a No. 1 victory royale. Let me grab some coffee, and I’ll join the next game.
9. PEOPLE PAY REAL MONEY FOR SKINS?
No way, I'll just earn my V-bucks. It can’t be too difficult, right?
10. FORGET IT, I NEED SKINS.
Eeeeeveryone has them except for me, and I’m so tired of getting called a no-skin. And I heard from some gamer that they give you in-game advantages. It’s only $20, and I’ll only get one.
11. HOW DID I SPEND $200 ON SKINS?
In only two weeks??? And that guy was wrong it’s literally just cosmetic. Ugh I’m in too deep.
12. IT’S 4 AM?
But I need to join my friend from California’s party. Guess I’ll stay up for just one more round… I need some more coffee.
Hey, we’ve all been there. Being a noob isn’t anything to be ashamed about, as long as they’re not beating you in their first battle royale.
