Epic Games have added Driftin' limited-time mode back to Fornite after introducing some minor changes to the mode. Originally, Driftin' LTM was added in the latest patch but after the negative feedback, Epic decided to tweak it a bit more.

Just a couple of days ago, Epic Games dropped another major update for Fortnite which introduced new items and special limited-time mode dubbed Driftin'. It was a highly anticipated mode that divided players into two teams of 32 players each, while removing all ammo and chests from the map.

As a substitute for these, Epic added plenty of red supply drops which contained drift boards, guns and ammo. Riding these drift boards slowly regenerated players' health and shields, and while it looked like a neat idea on paper, Epic had to remove the mode just a day after it went live.

The reason for that is the feedback from players who felt that the new mode is too short with not enough supply drops, and a circle that's moving at lightning pace. Those who failed to get their hands on a drift board were doomed, as it was impossible to keep up with the circle, unless you had one of these fancy, new items.

Just a day after they removed the mode, Epic have added it back to Fortnite with fresh changes that should make the experience much more enjoyable to the majority of players. The changes are minor and they include a couple of tweaks to circle size, supply drops and the stor movement speed. 

The size of the first circle has been reduced to increase the supply drop density, and to help with that even more, the devs added 10 more supply drops to the first circle. Storms will now move more slowly in mid and late-game giving the players more chance to make it to the last circle.

Furthermore, the spawn rate of Rift-2-Go in Chests has been increased so you should see these epic items more often from now on.
