XP Levelling Buff

According to Fortnite leaker iFireMonkey, Epic Games have buffed the XP you gain this season. After complaints about the XP system since Chapter 2 began, Epic have adjusted the XP system. Prior to the change, it would have required more than 1,000 matches at 5,000 XP in order to reach level 100 along wih completing all challenges and punchcards.

They’ll fix it as they always do. There’s always something off, but they listen to the player community which is good. Just tweet epic any issues and they usually take it into consideration
