100T Arkhram Switching to Controller:
Arkhram’s latest twitch live stream was titled “Solo Arena | Switching to Controller”. This confirms that 100t Arkhram is indeed switching to Controller pretty soon.
But why is he switching? The reason is given by Arkhram himself. There was a message bot showing this message during the stream. This message is by 100T Arkhram and it reads, “Yes, actually switching to controller, Yes it’s a permanent change; Switching cause controller has aimbot & is superior[Using a scuf impact]”.
So from the message we can see that the main reason for Arkhram switching controller is aim assist. Arkhram also mentioned that he will be using a Scuf Impact controller when he switches.
What does this mean for the balance between Fortnite KVM and controller? More pro players might switch to controllers in the future following Arkhram’s example. What are your thoughts on this topic?
