Ninja was squadding up with CourageJD and SypherPK when a discussion on lobby size resulted in this interaction

Activision’s Call of Duty: Warzone is one of the hottest games on the console & PC markets. As the landscape stands at the moment, Warzone is the second leading competing battle royale title positioning itself as a direct competitor to Fortnite

While some top streamers and comp players such as Cloakzy were early on the Warzone bandwagon, Ninja and SypherPK started coming around to regularly playing the game later down the road. Now as they continue to enjoy the competing battle royale, these top creators would like to see some features ported to Fortnite

One requested feature that is gaining popularity among content creators is increasing the lobby’s size to 125 or even 150. Warzone supports 150 player lobbies across their incredibly vast map, a 50% increase from the status quo Fortnite set three years ago

Ninja notes that the current Fortnite map is 40% bigger than the previous map we had in Chapter 1. While the size increased by a sizable amount, the lobby size didn’t

The trio agreed that Ninja’s proposition could fit into Fortnite nicely. SypherPK added by saying that it shouldn’t be in competitive modes, but given how unstacked pubs are - it should fit nicely

While the early game might be affected, the effects should be minimal. Remember, the map is much bigger this season ‘round and your computer doesn’t render the whole map at once

We previously reported how Fortnite could take inspiration from Warzone’s “Gulag” feature, where eliminated players could verse each other for a “last chance” back to the game. The Gulag is a staple to Warzone and many streamers appreciate having another opportunity to jump back into the game and increase their chance at the dub

While Warzone and Fortnite are completely different in style - first person realistic versus third person cartoon, we can’t doubt that battle royale games can build off of each other’s success. This wouldn’t even be the first time Fortnite took highly requested features from competing games

Back in 2019, Respawn came out with a nifty BR game by the name of Apex Legends. Among other really cool features, Apex stood out due to their reboot feature during team based game modes. If your teammate gets full-killed but you manage to clutch up, bring your friends back to the fight by submitting their reboot card at a major location

Fortnite basically carbon copied this idea… and we all love it. Remember when reboot vans didn’t exist, and getting full killed was game over? Not a problem any more. Maybe continuing to take inspiration from other battle royale’s is Fortnite’s key to adapting in the fast paced market
