During the last update, Epic removed one but very important thing for many people.
Update 14.50 removed one thing from Fortnite, but very important to many people. It is about the double assignment of keys responsible for the character’s movement. A lot of people have used it, especially at the highest level.
One of them was Mongraal, but a lot of people are complaining about the removal, including streamers, YouTubers, and regular players.

Epic apparently felt they didn’t want something like this in the game and simply removed the feature. We didn’t have to wait long for the effect. Youtubers, streamers and professional gamers showed what they think about the new idea of the developers.
It is not known whether Epic will reinstate “double assignment”. and whether there was even any awareness of the consequences of such a move.
