Fortnite players have long requested some sort of system to be able to let there friends know where certain loot is instead having to try to walk them through it. Apex legends built a most of it’s gameplay around this one simple feature which they titled there “Ping” system. Fortnite season 8 launched today and one of it’s major changes is that it now includes a system very similar to Apex’s pinging system. But what does this have to say about Epic Games? Are they just trying to give players what they want? If so why did it take this long to get such a simple feature added? What can be said about them making it so similar to the system which Apex launched with?
