Despite controversy, I thoroughly enjoyed this season!
The season had decent content, pretty crappy map changes apart from the blimps, and Zero Build (which I personally hate playing but I know it brang of players to the game that loved it).
What did I like? This season had possibly my favourite battle pass EVER! 2 members of the seven, Dr. Strange, Kiara (which I still use frequently), Tsuki 2.0, OMNI SWORD! (goes really good with Darth Vadar as you can make a light sabar with it), and many more!
Also the lore and story this season was really good despite most people not caring about the story in this game.
Finally the live event this season was really good, I played it with my brother and two friends and had a blast, especially the downtime with the lofi music was a really nice touch.
What didn't I like? Fuck tanks, fuck the content (caz there was none), fuck getting a purple Anvil Rocket Launcher out of a GOD CHEST!!!
There were like no map changes this season, the spider-man mythics straight up gone and left, and the season felt a little empty in the middle.

"A Fantastic Way To Reintroduce Old Players"
This particular season was the one that got me back into this game after nearly four years of being absent from pretty much everything to do with it. The addition of "No-Build" was exactly what I wanted to see from the game, even if the idea could have been implemented sooner in its lifespan. Still, the refined mechanics, loads of fresh new combat options, and interesting map developments all combined to make this a very memorable return to this title.
The big negatives of this season were a few problematic weapons (moreso the Drum Shotgun, though the MK-7 assault rifle was a bit too easy to wreck with) as well as a pretty bland narrative throughout the season. Still, "Fortnite" has always been about fun first and balance/logic later, and this was a comparatively balanced season with a straightforward narrative compared to anything else I've seen from the game beforehand.
And oh man were the new mechanics fun to use. Mantling, tactical sprint, and overshield were perfect additions for the No-Build mode and helped bring the game up to part movement wise with other BR's like "Apex: Legends". Yet there is such a greater focus on wacky fun that makes "Fortnite" charming to me, a 23-year-old dude that keeps playing even six months later. This season threw in operable tanks, lots of long-range weapon options, and some interesting returns of apparently vaulted items like C4 and Shockwave Grenades.
Fishing was a thing I never knew to be a part of the game, and while it was an older addition it was still new to me and felt pretty balanced and fun despite being an objectively boring mechanic to manage in a game like this. I mean even driving was new for me since I only ever played when golf carts were the only vehicles around - now you have 4x4's, sports cars, taxis, and friggin' armored Battle Buses! Really cool and goofy stuff to mess around with that kept me entertained and felt fun to mess around with.
And I think that's the crux of "Fortnite" that people just don't seem to want to accept sometimes - it's an objectively entertaining experience. Nowhere else can you have constant content updates, crossover events like this season's "Star Wars" lightsaber dueling, and players tied to balloons shooting rocket launchers at C4-covered cars flying off of cliffs. This is what games like "Battlefield" constantly claim to deliver in terms of fun, yet "Fortnite" gets a bad rap (even from myself at times) for doing exactly what it's supposed to do - be fun (even if its goal is to make Epic Games loads of money).
Great season. Fantastic reintroduction to old and new mechanics. Loads of fun and good vibes. This is really all I look for sometimes from multiplayer gaming.
Final Verdict: 9/10 (Excellent)

SEASON RANK: 19th
Not a great season, but not a bad season. This season is only second to last because its just meh. There's something about these Chapter 3 seasons that have just been sucking every bit of life out of the game. It feels that every season before Chapter 3 has had a distinct vibe or theme, but this season and the season before are just so devoid of any character that its honestly depressing. Character aside, this season isn't awful. I'm not a fan of the no build mode so the first week and a half or so I played pretty much zero games. I do appreciate that it is optional though, so I can finally stop hearing 13 year-old brats with the cognitive ability of a Manhattan street rat complain about a mechanic that has been apart of the game since the very beginning because people are just better at the game than them. Seriously, shut the fuck up oh my god. This was supposed to be a war-themed season but the extent of that promise was fulfilled with 3 IO guards and 3 of those Seven minions fighting completely away from everyone else, a couple "outposts" on the map, and like 3 drills. The event at the end of the season was pretty cool with the mech nelking like an absolute champion but its definitely not gonna go down as one of the best. Battle pass was just okay though, I love the design of the members of the seven incorporated into this one but other than that there's nothing much to speak of here. Gunplay certainly improved from the season prior to this one but its still nothing special. Movement is the same its been since C2S3 but except there's tanks now (they're just slower and have more health than cars with a weak ass cannon on top). The new movement is pretty cool though, its nice not having to build a stair constantly. Overall, just a boring and unremarkable season, I hope that Chapter 3 improves from this point forward.

this season was pretty ok but i dropped off towards the end, the new movement was cool though
