There were a few highlights in the v10.20 patch, but a few short lines of text attracted the most attention. Epic nerfed Turbo building, which makes it much harder to execute build strategies that were previously routine.
Epic Games just charmed the basic mechanic in Fortnite: Turbo Building.
A small line of text in the patch notes will have serious implications for the state of Fortnite and the community is not happy about it.
Epic changed the time between subsequent placements in Turbo Build from 0.05 seconds to 0.15.
This change makes it all the more difficult. Anyone who practices their building now should start from scratch as their muscle memory is no longer used.
Although they cited Ping as the reason for making this change, Epic probably wanted to reduce the skills gap. Unfortunately, they seem to have done the exact opposite.

In the patch notes, the Fortnite team says the change in Turbo Building is a "leveling game" field about ping when it comes to turtle. "What they did was dramatically widen the skill gap and anger a large percentage of the player base.
As you can see from the Myth clip, it's now much more advantageous to click every time you put up a wall or a ramp instead of
I'm sure Epic wanted to reduce the skill gap with this change, but in the end they increased it. It's now harder to complete the 90s than it ever was in the past.
Most of the players who could regularly make 90 now need to train again, but they will adapt – provided the change stays in the game. Anyone who has been on the fence around the 1990s will not be able to make them at all.
I do not expect this change to last very long. .Probably Epic will see the result after their next patch and change it too long. If not, this may be the final straw for some already excited Fortnite players.
