V8.20 Fortnite patch has been the least controversial, but Doc took the heat up to the next level in a clash with Ninja on Twitter.
Dr. Disrespect is a spicy person who says the least, he is quite literally a sign. He doesn't have a filter when it comes to games, and so people have flocked to him over the years. He tells it as if it is, at least from his perspective.
Recently, the popular Fortnite player and personality, Ninja went on Twitter to express his annoyance with the v8.20 patch and its changes to the public ghost mother.
The function is the rotation of the siphon from the "normal" states. This return changed the game back to what it has always been for the casual experience. Here are ninja thoughts of what Sqauds (only played in normal states) now feels like:
Squads are so stupid and boring now.

While the statement can be considered "accurate" from the perspective of a competition game, let's be honest, it's not as deep and sound analysis.
We believe that the changes in the siphon are not good for competitive societies (which many players actually seem to force themselves against while they call themselves casuals), but the change makes perfect sense to casual players.
Siphoning makes the game harder and ensures that the more skilled player wins most of the time. We like it, but informal Fortnite is not about the better player / team always winning.
Dr. Disrespect responded to Ninja's commenting on a burning response that probably won't shock those who have felt his ire before.
These developers know what they are doing.

Calling the greatest Fortnite streamer on Twitch a "Whiny, bratty, complainer" is not small thing. He knew he would get backlash and did it anyway.
We do not tolerate this type of toxic clash, but let's see the underlying arguments.
Ninja claims that Sqauds is no longer fun for competitive players because of which it no longer has siphon. Meanwhile, Doc is on the other hand, where the relaxed experience should not have siphoning at all.
How we look at it.
Casual Fortnite is about having fun and not necessarily getting the best player to win. So siphoning is not really sensible in casual game mode, as the majority of players will be dunked by better players with the mechanic.
Ninja makes a good point even though Squads can only be played in casual Fortnite.  We believe that the best solution would be to promote the split of the modes. God knows that the game has enough players for multiple playlists.
Arena Mode will introduce a Squads mode on Solos and Duos it already has. In this way, players who want to play with siphoning can have a place to play with friends without affecting the truly casual community.
Epic games are hesitant for some reason to divide the community in any way, the suspect reason for the delay in a ranked state at first.
The problem is very similar to calls from console players to a dedicated competitive scene, as the dynamics between PC and console give an unreasonable leeway. Once again, everyone knows that the console scene would have more than enough players to burn it.
